Simon Pearce glass: simple, elegant household furnishings made from clear, blown glass. What inspired you? The light, open feeling created by the 22’ window. I don’t need lots of space, but I do need the feeling of space. And the long window in this apartment does the trick. In addition, clear glass tables and lamps provide functionality without visual mass, while light walls, upholstery, and carpet provide a feeling of openness, and an uncluttered background for notable furniture and art.
Finally, I optimize space by bleeding functional areas into each other (living room and dining room), by applying individual items multiple roles (table+desk+storage), and by resisting the urge to accumulate stuff!
Design Tip: Glass furnishings provide functionality, style, and modest visual mass.
