Designer lighting by Sharon Marsten has that WOW factor - no question. The UK designer has really pioneered the use of fiber optic technology in high-end lighting fixtures and displays. Particularly with her use of end emitting fiber optics. It gives her stunning lighting a magical quality. Mixed with copper or other metal mesh pieces, mixed with nylon, mixed with metals - the sky is the limit and her creations are sensational. Many are in public buildings, hotels, casinos and museums. But many

Racine Carree is French for Square Root making the English name the Square Root Table. By either name, the table is a beautiful melding of a found oak stump, a unique bespoke design by Thomas de Lussac and traditional craftsmanship via the dove tailing that joins the tabletop and single leg with the section of tree trunk itself. The oak stump was found in the Perch region of northwestern France and Perchebois craftsmen E. Chartrain, Bouhours and Gautier constructed this tree inspired furnitu

Modern home radiators and towel warmers have come a long, long way. Now they are pieces of art as much as a small appliance. So many different types and ideas - from wall hung panel radiators to floor mount radiators and everything in between. There's even a mirror radiator and it's sleek! Bench radiators, too - talk about being in the hot seat. Some of these luxury radiators are towel racks and towel warmers, some are shelving on top of everything else. Some are hydraulic power and some use e

Heart shaped furniture and decor come in all shapes and sizes, but each item features the idea of a heart whether realistically portrayed or suggested. We've decided to focus on 15 realistic designs that are as modern as they are heart-felt because after all, home is where the heart is. This beautiful heart shaped shelving unit is called Cuore, by Roberto Corazza, and it is the perfect furniture design for book lovers. And don't you just love how the little heart supports the bigger one? Sou

This beautiful selection of porcelain and ceramic wood effect tiles is an important addition to our original wood look tile collection. As we've found a few more amazing looking tile designs, we had to include them as well, possibly making the combination of the two collections the most comprehensive resource on the web for wood effect tiles. We were very careful to select only the nicest, most realistic wood grain designs. As a main difference from real wood planks, these faux wood tiles can a

The Abyss Dining Table is a continuing thought process and experimentation by Christopher Duffy of Duffy London that began with the Abyss Coffee Tables. The Abyss series presents abstracted geological slices of sea and land and their varying topography. Rugged below and glassy smooth for the tabletops, they are as functional as any tables on the market, but that is where the comparison ends. The Abyss tables are statement pieces that are art, sculpture and science all wrapped up into one gorgeo

Indoor benches are some of the most functional pieces of furniture in a home, they can be used behind couches that "float" in rooms, to add a bit of pizzazz to what is usually a not meant to be seen portion of the sofa. A bench is great in an entryway to sit on or place bags on. They're gorgeous in front of a fireplace or at the foot of a bed and they are a fun alternative to chairs at a dining table. Indoor benches come in all shapes and sizes but the most unique designs are usually wooden, pl

Home is where the heart is, and for chefs, their hearts are front and center in their kitchens, but the same should hold true for anyone and everyone who spends time in a kitchen preparing a meal or even just a snack. We should all love our kitchens and enjoy the process of culinary creations and we should all want to spend "Time" in our kitchens, even if we are just an observer of someone else's food artistry. Snaidero understands this and has designed the Time kitchen to be just that, a place

With architects and designers everywhere bringing nature and natural elements into the home, it is no wonder that furniture designers have become inspired with creating designs that feature the great outdoors, especially trees. These 20 stunning tree inspired designs run from the abstract to the literal and are made from tree wood, metal, embroidery and more. Fallen Tree by Benjamin Graindorge is one of the more literal interpretations with actual tree branches seemingly growing from its ben

One of the limitations in most kitchens is the need to create venting for a stove thereby limiting the location a stove can be placed, but with a flexible stove hood that limitation simply disappears. These 2 kitchens both feature unusual stove hoods with robotic appeal that can be moved and repositioned easily. The ability to reach from a venting location to anywhere a stove is placed is what gives them their unusual, almost sci fi appearance and it is this same space age aesthetic that frees

Anyone who has ever washed their hands knows that the process could use a little streamlining in the design department and that is exactly what Sloan Valve Company did when they created the AER-DEC Touch-free Integrated Sink with its hands free soap, rinse and dry capabilities, all within one high tech sink. Gone are the dripping hands as you move from sink to towel or heat dispenser, gone are the soap drips on vanity counters, gone is the need to touch a germy tap after washing your hands. Soa

If you have a small bathroom, and planning to remodel or upgrade it, think vanity consoles as they offer a few benefits. Space saving abilities is the number one selling point for the vanity consoles.
