“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child” Pablo Picasso
At Save More Plumbing & Lighting we sell lights from a variety of companies who sell truly remarkable lights. Most lights work with all spaces but some companies sell unique lights that only work in the right space. As a fun experiment we asked aspiring interior designers, nine-year-old’s Anna and Neal to send us their top picks of lights that they felt were unique from the websites of our lighting suppliers. Below is the list of their combined pick of top 12 designs along with descriptions about each light selected or the collection.
Many times as adults, our choices become a bit standard, so we thought might as well ask a young creative designer for their top picks and share with our customers who might want a different creative perspective on design.
FOR ALL SPACES
Navicula Pendant – is derived from nature, in this case from one of the many microscopic diatoms that float around in the oceans. The flowing, segmented form is shipped as flatpack and assembled on site with push-in nylon clips. The thin curved pieces of CNC-cut bamboo plywood create a flowing structure that also casts magical patterns. It is lit from within with a row of LED pin-point lights. There are three sizes.
Cloud Pendant – Inspired by the clouds that David saw sitting over small islands all over the Pacific Ocean, which were used by Polynesian navigators to find islands from afar. Cloud lights compliment our upholstered Island Seats and can be hung directly over the same shape.
Kolorado Pendants – Breathtaking…that’s what came to mind when we saw the ruins of an old Nevada mine at sunset. The walls had been constructed of wine bottles and mud. All those old bottles arranged so perfectly and capturing the sunlight, what better inspiration for a lighting family? We mimicked the bottle ends with recycled steel circles of varying sizes filled with recycled glass discs. Rarely before has a design based in “old” seemed so powerfully new. Hand-forged steel has 70% or greater recycled content. Low-VOC finish. Recycled glass. Acrylic diffuser.
Sheets of clear beveled Crystal are suspended from frames of Polished Chrome and allowed to drape in natural waves of light. All powered by xenon lamps, the Wave collection sparkles as light reflects from a multitude of angles.
Matte White rings suspend in a unique fashion as if relying on each other for support. A continuous band of LED evenly spread generous amounts of dimmable light into the space. Ceiling fixtures can also double as wall mounts.
