Although sheâs a bit computer-shy, interior designer Sally Sirkin Lewis of Inglewood, California, favors lighting easily found on the Web from the Italian firm Flos. Recently Sirkin chose Flosâs Parentsi lamp for a private residence. âItâs sleek and minimal,â she saysâa perfect match for her understated style, which mixes classic design with soft, modern, natural materials. âSpending time in Rome, Milan and Florence turned me on to Italian task lightingâI use it almost exclusively in my work,â Sirkin says. Now, if sheâll learn to love the computer, she wonât need to make the trip again.
One of my favorite lighting fixtures is Flos' classic Parentesi lamp.
