Today I thought I’d shed a bit of lighting design inspiration from Zia Priven Design. Zia Priven is a company comprised of a husband and wife team. Marcia Zia and Paul Priven began creating clean, classic, hand made lighting designs in 1999. Their designs show a strong modern aesthetic, grounded in classic styling, materials and finished details.
The fixture above features lovely feminine hand-blown glass drops in soft elongated shapes, with staggered lengths hung from a hammered bronze ceiling canopy.
I’m drawn to this ceiling fixture for it’s simplistic style, play on simple materials, translucent appeal and soft circular shape. Love the polished nickel faceted bead ball chain and top canopy as classic modern elements.
Similar in design concept to the fixture above, but with a geometric twist, level faceted bead ball lengths with a copper colored finish. Stunning !!
Same idea and the copper pendant, but with silver metallic finish, slightly smaller scale design..equally brilliant.
Zia Priven is also known for their stellar hand-blown glass finials…above are a few of my favorites.
Lastly, a simple driftwood based table lamp. The shape, the materials, the negative space within it’s body results in a textural clean lighting alternative for your bedside or a sofa/console table. (I absolutely adore the console table it shown on—love the organic shaped wood slab with asymetrical metal inserts for support and design appeal).
I have so missed blogging and connecting here. I sometimes feel like I am drowning in all the aspects of my life….wishing to feel a sense of balance…to give the appropriate amount of time and attention to all that matters to me…sometimes, I just fall short.
I hope to be more consistent here as time goes by in 2010.
