F.3: Echo 1 by Bec Brittain . Bec is one of my all time favorite lighting designers. This talented designer does not shy away from details; her keen eye and sleek artistry makes this fixture one worth spec’ing.
About this fixture:
The concept of this series is based on the contrast of materials and refers to the traditional craft
of crystal glass blowing into an oak mold. The idea was born when visited the warehouse of old
wooden molds, which Lasvit has in its archive. The fact that something so fine and pure in shape
as crystal glass is formed in something so raw and fundamentally primitive as a charred glass mold
fascinated us. We tried to create a light that combines the elegance of crystal with the rusticity
of a wooden form clinched with iron nails. Our design reveals the harsher aspect of traditional
glass making, which is hidden in the background of production.
Thanks to this, the Moulds collection brings very strong emotions into interiors. Especially the
composition of different “overblown” shapes create an impressive scenery. Because the integrated
LED source was inserted directly into the charred mold, it creates the impression that the heat and
the energy of the glass furnace remain stored inside, as well as the efforts of the Czech glassmakers.

WOW! Is the perfect opening word for this restaurant interior design and food review. Gracias Madre is a new vegan restaurant perfectly located on Melrose in West Hollywood. From the moment that I laid my eyes on the exterior I was eager to step foot inside to see more, and when I did I was not disappointed. The interior design of this restaurant is so amazing and simple. The designers did a great job at designing a Mexican style space with a modern facelift. What I loved the most about the space is the space planning. The amount of seating that the restaurant has is perfect! You are not awkwardly close to anyone and you can enjoy a conversation without having to shout or worry about others hearing you. The atmosphere was amazing and so was the staff. So how was the food you ask? Delicious! everything that we ordered was truly amazing putting meat to shame! We ordered the kale salad, taquitos, chips, and marinated mushrooms. With that said you must try this restaurant out at least once, add this restaurant to your buck list!
Depending on how much space you are willing and able to dedicate to a bar within your home here are some great bar options that are compact and stylish. I love the brass wall art letters that I found on Crate and Barrel allowing you to create custom wall art. In addition adding some chic bar accessories bring together a great place to visit after a long day or when entertaining guest.
