THE LUMENS GUIDE TO A GREAT SPACE

1Mix up modern. Combine bright whites, clean shapes and au natural finishes for an open, airy space that’s ready for summer entertaining. Even without a single statement piece, the right blend of items you love always speaks for itself.

2Add life. A little detail that goes a long way? Greenery. A striking plant or a bouquet of flowers brings color to a space while keeping a neutral palette. Not to mention, it’s an inexpensive update that adds to air quality and—we think—good design juju.

3Don’t overdo it. Stuffocation does not make for a well-designed space. The details might be small, but they are mighty, and each and every furnishing accessory should be something you love so that editing what’s on display is a cinch.

GET THIS LOOK:

Carvaggio Pendant by Lightyears Caravaggio Pendant by Lightyears

We love it because: The flared bell-jar silhouette of this Danish superstar is the perfect balance of high design and a clean, streamlined aesthetic.

One More Please Stool by Kartell One More Please Stool by Kartell

We love it because: Designer Philippe Starck and Kartell have mastered the art of the barely-there chair, and we love that this one is light on the visual real estate in a busier space.

Synnes Chair by Menu Synnes Chair by Menu

We love it because: It was designed to be a modern, minimalist take on the classic Scandinavian dining chair. The curved backrest is like little tiny hug when you sit against it.

Axel Extension Table by Calligaris Axel Extension Table by Calligaris

We love it because: It believes in the more, the merrier! The Easy X-Tension leaf stretches one or both sides to seat up to 12 people comfortably, and the mirrored legs add just the right amount of drama.

Celata Basket by Alessi Celata Basket by Alessi

We love it because: Fruit never had it so good. This Giulio Iacchetti design is a beautiful way to corral fruit or other opjects, with a helmet-inspired design that brings a bit of geometry to the table or countertop.

Trinity Bowl Collection by Alessi Trinity Bowl Collection by Alessi

We love it because: That notion that everything in your home should be beautiful? This bowl fits it to a T, with a single sheet of laser cut steel that’s been bent into a distinctive shape inspired by a nautilus shell.

Four Vase by Muuto Four Vase by Muuto

We love it because: The rotating inner glass sphere is not only a visual stunner, it can be rotated to hold different size arrangements (or remove it all together to use the clear glass cylinder on its own).

Vino Wine Rack by Blomus Vino Wine Rack by Blomus

We love it because: The space-saving, countertop design holds up to 12 bottles of your favorite vino, but we equally love the bold, abstract design that the steel wire creates against a blank wall.
