Come to the Light

Art touches a part of us and brings beauty and a new perspective into our awareness. It reminds us of the creative force within each of us, and from where we come into existence.
Everything in nature is breathtaking and divinely designed. Even while beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we can see the sublime in everything around us, as we do in ourselves. I think that’s why so many people love designer furniture – the lines on each piece are exquisite, the details drawing your eye to each bend, each button, each stitch, each strap. When we are able to marry art and function, we can bring imagination and inspiration into our environment, even the most mundane setting.
The Schmetterling lamp with Graham Owen’s handcrafted butterflies and dragonflies is a twist on “moth to the flame”. This interplay of the light and insects brings the idea of nature into our interiors, thereby creating a link to the outdoors that each of us craves on some level. This lamp is simple, understated, and adds a playful touch to any room.
