Warm Details in Modern Homes

It's a cold, wet day here, which has us warming up to these winter-friendly details from modern homes...

So often, modern design is labeled as hard and cold. Not so, though, in these cases. It's amazing what an effect even visual details have on warming up a room. We've been fighting the chill ourselves, even though our office is concrete-floored with lots of hard surfaces. One visual weapon in our arsenal? A glowing little lamp (like this) used in lieu of the cool overhead lighting. Here's more on the details pictured up top:
