Design Swoon: Tom Dixon Copper Shade

I can promise you that there will be more Tom Dixon Design Swoons in the future but I thought I'd start with the most classic: The Copper Shade. I love the unique texture and color that it brings to a space. For a room to look beautiful and interesting I think something shiny is always needed and the the copper shade is the perfect bling for literally any room. The very simple and clean design also means that it can fit seamlessly into many design styles. It also means that you can layer many shades for a big impact. First, here are some beautiful examples of the copper shade in dining areas.

In living spaces they work especially beautifully in groups because you have enough space to play with. They reflect light in the day time and imagine how they illuminate the room at night. I love both these examples because they exemplify how versatile the copper shade can look in different spaces.

Finally, the copper shade is the perfect calming accent in a bedroom. Especially in such a soft one as this.

The Tom Dixon Copper Shade is one of those classics that will never go out of style. From his website:

"A light made using copper, a material more commonly associated with solar cells and microwave radiation. The Copper Shade is created by exploding a thin layer of pure metal onto the internal surface of a polycarbonate globe. The result is a highly reflective surface with a warm metallic glow. "

It's like interior design candy. For more information on The Copper Shade and other beautiful Tom Dixon designs click here for his website.
