Dwell Magazine Ad Design


I had so much fun with this latest set design for Lumens Light and Living which was in the November issue of Dwell Magazine. It is a blast to be able to pull things together from design forward companies like Moooi, Artimede, Vitra and Ameico to create a sort of fantasy still life. In this space, we featured the new Tolomeo Mega Black Floor Lamp by Artimede in a Dining Room setting. This lamp is so versatile! I can see it in a traditional setting for a little unexpected, but classic, flair, or any sort of modern space. It can be set over a desk, in a Living Room, or a Dining Room, like this.  I placed it above the Moooi Balls Table which was created by Dutch designer Bertjan Pot in 2006. Love the legs on this table.....even better, they fold up for easy transport or storage. Moooi just pushes the envelope and others follow. 
I added the classic white Panton Chairs by Verner Panton by Vitra and finished things off with the Bianco Vase from Michele De Lucci and Elisa Gargan for Produzione Privata. The shape and scale of this vase is just beautiful. Grey velvet curtains, some pears from the Farmers Market to add a bit of life....they were such pretty colors.....and branches from the tree in our front yard.

You can see and read more about all of the items HERE

Here is a peek at the original concept sketch I did for the set:

Other than changing the floor to white ( love a white floor!) the set remained pretty true to the original concept. It helps so much to be able to "see" the space before it is all put together!

Thanks again to the wonderful team at Lumens
and excellent photography team at PhotographerLink who make every project to much fun!
