- We recently featured a spectacular kitchen renovation in Brooklyn where the shining star is most certainly in the brass details. The popularity of this look only reaffirms: Brass is where it's at.
It's no secret that designs that do double duty make our hearts throb. Enter the Red Dot Award–winning BlancoWhite series of LED lamps by Antoni Arola for Santa & Cole. They're tables, shelves, accent pieces, and lighting all in one!
Pros: Is it a Goomba from Super Mario Bros.? A strange breed of mushroom? Castiglioni’s striking 1967 marble, glass, and metal design is a surefire conversation starter.
It’s versatile: Focused light emanates below, while the holes in its top disperse a gentle glow.
Cons: The Snoopy's finicky touch-sensitive three-way dimmer is difficult to master. When we tried to dim the light, a gentle tap often sent us into the dark. Our frustrations were enough to warrant a Clapper.
