Let there be LIGHT….and a table.

March 27, 2011

Attempting to pair side tables and lamps can sometimes be very difficult.  The brilliant minds of design found a solution for this, combine the two.

A reading chair may look lonely, you may already have a side table that will not accomodate a table light, or you may not be able to fit a side table between two chairs…there are many reasons this concept fits the bill.

For the existing small side table that needs a light, pairing a subtle modern light not only adds style but most importantly, function.

Explore many of our lighting lines to find the light that fits your home and deocrating needs from Flos, Artemide, Ingo Maurer, Foscarini and Tobias Grau.  You can also view other blogger’s faves below … many of which we can help you source locally at the SR Hughes showroom.

Light Up Your Outdoor Nights

March 25, 2011

Good lighting is part of the architecture of good living.  But, sadly, it is often overlooked or undernourished when people build their indoor or outdoor spaces. Lighting supports living!

In outdoor spaces, it creeps down the wall from rubbery cones to softly illuminate the space next to the chairs where you and your cherie have a glass of wine in the evening …

It lights the pathway to your kitchen which is brimming with smells, laughter, and friends coming for dinner …

Its heavy gauge bronze shields your eye from harsh glare, while at the same time directing a soft wash of light upward and downward on the wall for a soft background glow…

…and creates an organic sculpture garden out in the sand where your guests carry their plates full of food to grab a seat, eat, and gab away the evening…

Yes, lighting is functional!  But, when imagined correctly, it’s also playful, beautiful, and innovative.  It helps you describe your home and your way of seeing life to your friends … without saying a word on the subject.  You’re simply free to live, laugh, and be in the moment with your guests for a wonderful night together!

The Best Island

March 23, 2011

Philippe Stark is a design genius so its hard to go wrong with any of his pieces. Stark’s PRIVE big island for Cassina is the perfect answer when you desire a comfortable piece of furniture that you can sit down, stretch out, curl up on but want a break from the traditional sofa and chair option. Prive measures roughly 70 x 70 so you can choose to lay out or throw a party on this big island. Always upholstered in leather, Prive’s modern classic, clean-lined design will only become more beautiful with age and use the same way Mies van der Rohe‘s Barcelona couch by Knoll has been a design classic since 1930.  When you invest in contemporary pieces from Cassina, you can relax in comfort knowing that both style and substance will PREVAIL.

During the CASSINA FALL SALE September 9-23, timing doesn’t get any better to own your very own private island.

Mex in Real Life

March 21, 2011

My husband once said that our ultra comfy Mex Cube sofa from Cassina is one of the best purchases he ever made and I couldn’t agree more. We both have big families and so we needed lots of comfortable seating that would hold up to lots of use and Mex fit the bill beautifully. We choose to configure Mex as a sectional with one end offering a deeper sit and a big wide arm that can also serve as a seat but anyone can design and their own configuration unique to their space and then redesign if you feel like a change or choose to move.

Mex sofa system has style, comfort, durability and flexibility. You can SAVE 20% of Mex now through MARCH 22nd!!!
