Cubist Cool

Last week I wrote about the geometric decor trend we’re seeing in homes this fall. I was excited when I spotted a few other features on the trend over the weekend, most notably in‘s Fall Culture Preview. They framed the trend in relation to Cubism’s faceted style, a tie-in to international Braque and Léger exhibits opening this fall — but same idea.

These Cubist-style lamps by interior designer Kimille Taylor stood out — aren’t they stunning? A Braque original isn’t in my budget but I’d be happy to settle for some artful lighting.

Their weighty, geometric forms and simple limed-oak finish have a Scandi-meets-modern look that I love. American Jazz composer Charles Mingus mused: “making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple… that’s creativity.” Don’t these lamps demonstrate that beautifully?
