What would modern classic furniture be without modern classic lighting? Its true, accessories and lighting stitch the cohesive band around the minimalist look you are attempting to achieve in any given interior space. Modern Classic lighting icons are specific designs that have passed the test of time. They most often have an over reaching design element that doubles in functionality. For example, the inception of the iconic artichoke lamp arose from the need to filter the harsh glare of the common light bulb. The artful form of the artichoke leaf is placed in such a way to allow the glow of light to fill the room without seeing the direct surface glare of the bulb itself.
