Lamp Galore

I have a HUGE passion for lighting, and specifically lamps. I like them striking, and different, complimentary, yet comical! Their shapes should echo the surroundings, and colour or spark should envigorate a room. Lamps are truly the easier decorative art you can move in and out of a design scheme. Here are some of my favourites....ps: stay tunes for some great lamp inventory on my upcoming eshop!

French 1970s Pelican lamps by Chervet

 Natural quartz and geodes lamps

The Art of displaying

One of the thing that we emphasize at ARTFORM is the way we incorporate Art into our space. Art should play with its surroundings, whether in colour schemes, shapes, forms, and general mood. It can be abstract, or more traditional but it has to be dear to the owner. We prefer displaying Artwork on neutral coloured walls, such as exhibiting Artwork on very dark walls (such as black or dark charcoal grays). It makes the artwork stand out that much more, and it makes the Artwork look like it is exhibited in a museum gallery. Dont forget about the artwork lamp above, this makes the artwork so much more special and brings it to life! The wall colours I tend to recommend is: "Simply White" Benjamin Moore, "Mountain peak white", Benjamin Moore, "Seed Pearl" by Pratt and Lambert, "Off Black" by Farrow and Ball, "Penguin's back" by Sico. No matter what, enjoy it:)
