The first piece of lighting we have today was sent to me by my sister. It is from yxta cocina mexicana in LA. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find any information on the fixture, but if and when I do, I will be sure to let you know. For now, lets just admire it.

Flower, by Property Furniture

 This second fixture is called Flower and it is by Property Furniture (propertyfurniture.com). Flower is 33″w x 39″h and is made of steel. It comes in unlimited colors including blackened steel, black metal, nickel, burnished bronze and any custom color you want. I love the shape of this fixture, and if done in the right color it could be used as a more feminine accent as well as a masculine inspired room.

Lastly, we have Porcini by Memake (memake.com.au). Unique and sustainable form the essence of these fixtures. Taking on the organic nature of the mushroom formed the basis for these handcrafted light fixtures. They are made from Tasmanian Oak, Australian beeswax and 100% pure wool, all of which are biodegradable and renewable. I could see these fixtures adding a sophisticated soft elegance in a muted color room, bringing natural and organic shapes inside.
