Hey, all. With Bear's permission, I would like to start an interior design thread! Even though this is a fashion forum, I beleive that design is one, and fashion is a subdivision of it. Others subdivisions include architecture, interior design, industrial design, and so on and so on. I think that philosophy behind design unites these, and I have found that many people who are into fashion love it because of the design aspect, because it represents not only a material object, but an object, and moreover an expression, of beauty, quality, craftmanship, involvement and care. The same is present in interior design. So, without further adue, I am starting this thread (oh, yea, and I am also decorating my new apartment, so it's a hot topic for me ). This is the thread to share your favorite interior design pieces, your favorite designers, your most wanted, most admired, your wish-lists and must-haves.
Today I found an incredible lighting piece which I will probably get for our living room. It is made by a Dutch designer Frans Van Nieuwenborg, and I was in awe of its beauty-in-simplicity. All it is is a piece of fabric that covers a light bulb, but it provides an airy romantic effect. Here is a picture.

Awesome Idea! Interior design is one of my favorite aspects of design. I love modern, minimalist, yet retro and classic interiors. If you are interested in modern architecture and interior design I recommend highly the magazine Dwell. It is by far my favorite magazine.
