Dining in Lights
A recent posting on WallPaper* magazine's webpage caught my attention. The use of light in the dining setting is not all that uncommon, however the light becomes a "spotlight" if you will. The main focal point in the room. While the source of light in many rooms becomes like a background figure, in the dining room it is thrust forward. I have noticed a new trend in the field. Addressing the placement and types of lighting used in these spaces. More importantly, something I have particularly enjoyed is the use of neon lamp work and the importance of creating a gathering space.
