There are some simple truths about how to create an unforgettable home. I only know a few. Use wood, curves and capture natural light whenever you can. And, another thing: Let’s agree to reject all formulas of design. The Fire Fly Light is designed by Shim-Sutcliffe architects with pods of phosphor captured in a Mason Jar. When you turn off the light, the pods glow like the fireflies up north. The oak door with acrylic panel slides into a curved plaster detail. Designed by Donald Chong Architect and inspired by the great Finnish modernist, Alvar Aalto. His master works in Finland are often on my mind.
