Chihuly Sculpture

A few weeks ago, during my trip to the Steelcase Headquarters I saw a gorgeous glass sculpture by one of my favorite active artists, Dale Chihuly.  His work is stunning, simply stunning.  He has installations all over the US, all unique and worth seeking out.  Below are a few photos of the one that is showcased at  Steelcase University in there open courtyard.

Guest Post! Stylish Bookcases.

Hi there! I’m Joanna, a guest blogger for Arcadian Lighting, a go-to source on the web for wonderful chandeliers, pendant lights, and other lighting fixtures. I am passionate about interior decorating and get to spend my days searching the Internet for lovely images and ideas for the home. Thanks to Design Create Love, I’m sharing some of my favorite stylish bookcases with you today. No matter your style, bookcases add so much class and personality to almost any space. Books never go out of fashion and they show off your interests. I love bookcases that are built in and span an entire library, study, or even a dining room. Below are some of my favorite stylish bookcases.

This library, surrounded by bookshelves, would be heaven to me. I could get lost in there for hours.

A modern living room gets floor to ceiling shelves for books and curios. What a lovely place to sit, study, or read.

Unusual built-in bookcases surround a doorway using precious space in a small flat. Modern furnishings and lighting fixture give the space an updated feel.

A trend that has taken off is papering the back of shelves for an added bit of interest and texture. This pretty pink bookcase is a perfect example.

A contemporary office boasts cute little cubbies for books, toys and supplies. The offset columns give the bookcase a little excitement.

This well-styled bookcase is color coordinated with the room in turquoise and coral. This is a popular color trend we are seeing a lot of recently.

Bookcases in the dining room are a terrific way to show off your book and curio collection. The black light fixture is a nice touch for tying in the black books on the shelves.
