What a great feeling to re-decorate you home, as things can get slightly stale year after year. Wouldn't it be nice to walk in the door one evening after work, and be pleasantly surprised at the freshly painted walls, new cozy sofa and gorgeous curtains? If an all out overhaul isn't in the budget, we suggest just a few new pieces of decor to give the room a whole new feel.One of our top picks is the Block Lamp from Design House Stockholm. A true design classic since it's launch in 1996, the block lamp is inspired by industrial glass bricks. The bulb is encased in two heavy glass blocks and can then be set on the floor or a tabletop. The lamp is offered with a red, black or white wire and gives off the perfect ambient glow. It's also sure to spark up plenty of conversation!Where to Buy - HornePrice - $120.00Who - Melimeli was the first to add the 'Block Lamp' to the Hive.
