Anglepoise produces a variety of lamps that are designed for both commercial and residential use. The Type 75 lamp was designed by Sir Kenneth Grange, and was inspired by a 1970s version of a 1950s Anglepoise lamp. Grange’s reimagination of the design was to produce a lamp with clean modern lines and unobtrusive functionality.
In 1933, George Carwadine launched the first Anglepoise four-spring task lamp. In 1935, he developed a more accessible version for domestic use, and named it the “Original 1227.” This lamp features a three-spring system and has become one of the most recognizable designs in modern lighting.
Anglepoise’s Original 1227 was launched in 1934, and is considered the archetypal lamp from the British company. The lamp took off where other contemporary task lamps left off, using a newly developed constant spring technology to create a lamp that was extremely flexible and adjustable, while also maintaining a consistent balance and stability.

In central Argentina, the province of La Pampa is dominated by vast, grassy plains whose fertile soil supports myriad farms and ranches. Stretching out in all directions, the flatlands resemble an ocean in its sheer horizontality. When professional polo player Nacho Figueras—a champion of the sport and a longtime Ralph Lauren model—enlisted architect Juan Ignacio Ramos of Estudio Ramos to build a stable for 44 polo horses, the architect was sure to incorporate the region’s meditative flatness into the design.

An expansive sliding glass door retracts into the zinc facade, opening up the master suite to a garden terrace. This echoes a 15-foot Corian wall that transforms a children's bedroom into an entertainment space, allowing flexibility and anticipating the time when the boys leave for college.
The double-height living room provided the perfect opportunity to combine the homeowners' love of art, literature, and travel, allowing them to fill the 24-foot shelves with books and collected artifacts. A wood-burning sustainable fireplace by Wittus adds a broad stroke of warmth.

Sandwiched in-between a pair of brick apartment buildings in Paris lies a technicolor basketball court. 
Basketball fan and founder of the French fashion brand Pigalle, Stéphane Ashpool collaborated with Parisian creative agency Ill-Studio and Nike to make over the site. The basketball court’s walls and floor encircle players in saturated and smooth shades, where shots can be made off of a bright pink backboard. The overall effect is set with a vibrant gradient aesthetic featuring a color palette of high-contrast grape, deep yellows, and bold blues.

The three-story Blue Lake Retreat is located in Marble Falls, Texas. The residence was designed by Lake Flato Architects to integrate naturally into the steep topography. With living spaces on the top floor and four bedrooms on the two lower floors, the timber structure is connected to the hillside by a bridge and boasts a cantilevered deck that floats just above the lake.
CB2 was also a major furnishing source in this bedroom, as the lighting and matching patterned pillows were found there. The striped throw at the edge of the bed is from Etsy.
Two matching Article side chairs face the sliding door leading to the deck.
Four hooks and a bench, both from CB2, create an entryway next to the front door.

The first floor’s open plan combines kitchen, dining, and living areas;  rift-sawn white oak planks line the floors throughout. “It’s a tremendous enhancement of our life together,” Louis says of the layout. Standard chairs by Jean Prouvé for Vitra surround the beeswax-coated steel dining table.
The barware, candle holders, dining set, lantern, terracotta planters, outdoor seating, and side table are all from the Modern by Dwell Magazine collection for Target. The fire pit is from Restoration Hardware.
