Designed by the Brazilian Etel, this chair is a truly unusual show stopper in the furniture world!
I’d definitely love to see it paired up with an Acro floor lamp at the end of a comfy modern sectional against a floor to ceiling window..

On the other extreme I think this chair could look just as phenomenally handsome in an elegantly cluttered eclectic space against a french tufted sofa like this one..
Or a laid back super comfy living room..

Featured in Style at Home, this historic Toronto building 730 sq. ft loft was given a sophisticated urban facelift by Jessica Kelly Design! I absolutely love how despite its tininess this apartment doesn’t feel cramped at all.. The color palette, the exposed brick, and natural lighting = top notch homy elegance!

It’s officially summer time! .. and for those of you in better weather climates (it’s over a 100 degrees out here!!) summer equals time for outdoor lunches and dinner parties.. Yaaaay! I hope you enjoy the season with these simple but stunning ambiance creation ideas by Cox & Cox..
First off, here is an easy any day DIY outdoor lighting solution for your garden. All you need is fire-retardant paper lantern bags (available in this pretty star punched design at Cox & Cox), some gravel to weigh them down and tea lights ..
Or fly your lanterns up in the sky with these charms… Just light the paper at the bottom of these amazing outdoor paper flying lanterns and watch them soar into the sky (Great for wedding parties!)
Enjoy your outdoor meals without being interrupted by the mossies with these delicate little terracotta pots. They contain citronella wax candles that provide a pretty light while keeping mosquitos away!
You can now store the morning sunlight in a jar so you can use it at night with this great solar-powered jar lamp that comes with a solar cell, a battery and LED lights. It’s waterproof and, once charged, remains lit for 5 hours!
More elegant ideas to lighten and brighten up your trees:
and lastly, keep your tablecloth in place by attaching these exclusive, twinkling glass droplets to its corners.. (I know this one’s nothing to do with lighting but I just couldn’t resist!!)

Nothing really reflects your taste and personality in the design of your space like the art pieces you pick… Just like you don’t have to follow any rules or please anybody when choosing them, I don’t think you should stick to any particular way displaying them.. Just have fun showing off your art whatever way you like!
