My Homage to Tom DixonPosted by Corey Klassen on Oct 11, 2013 in Blog, Inspirations | 5 comments
Someone recently remarked to me that designers and their blogs live in an untouchable world where everything is perfect and beautiful. Well, I’m sorry to burst everyone’s bubble but not all is as it seems. Designers like things, they fall in love, and often (very far too often) those things fall outside of the project budget. Just like projects, designers’ homes can fall outside of a budget quite quickly. I have had an affinity for Tom Dixon’s Beat lighting series for quite some time and would sell my soul to be able to afford the Beat Light Fat for my home.
Then it dawned on me, I must be able to take my inspiration from Mr. Dixon and make it my own.
A bit of inter-web sleuthing, and I found the perfect fixture to make it my own at one of the major blue and yellow big box stores. I knew I would need a touch of gold, so I headed over to the orange big box store for a can of antique brass spray paint. I was ready.
The Light Fixture
Where’s the other fixture? It’s in the kitchen now!
