You Light Up My Life.
I've always been a big fan of Isamu Noguchi's Akari lighting. These classic lanterns are modern in form yet handmade with natural materials and bring a softness and warm glow to any space. Noguchi himself said " the light of AKARI is like the light of the sun filtered thru the paper of shoji. The hardness of electricity is thus transformed thru the magic of paper back to the light of our origin- the sun -so that it's warmth may continue to fill our rooms at night." If possible, I'd put one in every room...click here to see a fascinating demonstration on how these are made.
