Slash used to play with Guns & Roses, but now he's just trying to declutter like the rest of us. Help him clean out by buying his barely used Flos Mini Globe Table light for five little ones. Apartment Therapy Furniture Classifieds are open for your business in the NAV BAR. Post a particularly good thing, and we'll post you here on the front page.... OTHER GOOD STUFF.Thanks, Craig!
This shower head by Jaclo is something a bit different: it combines the popular rain shower head with the equally popular drum lamp shade.... The outcome is the Lumiere, a line of LED-lit shower heads printed in a variety of patterns from damask to stripe. Hmm, we're not sure if the sum here is equal to its parts. What do you think?

This dining room mixes old and new elements for a look that's fresh, but still rooted in the past. Whether or not you decide to adopt these elements in your own home, hopefully it will provide you with a little inspiration for mixing things up in your own dining room.
To be perfectly honest I initially had a difficult time determining how I felt about these Barnacle wall mounted storage vessels. On one hand, I immediately imagined the grand effect of using these en masse, placed upon a large column or wall mimicking their natural inspiration, creating a storage solution that would both look like an art installation while providing utilitarian use. It's also their geometrically-modern form which would make these a tough fit for anyone who did not live in a 'Machine for living' interior, or at least one of the less traditional variety. Still, sometimes you can admire something simply for what it is without necessarily wanting it for yourself, and these certainly fall under that category.

I love that we made a tiny room feel gracious and bright! Victorian Houses in Richmond, Virginia's Historic Fan District are so narrow they can feel like living in the barrel of a shotgun, but I think we made the most of this small space that empties into the front entry! Sidebar: I painted the piece above the mantle one rainy afternoon when my precious little girls were plugged into a Disney movie because I was at the end of my parenting rope- ha! I love rooms to feel like a designer was never there, rooms that feel like they evolved over time, and rooms that are polished but not too precious. We also use the heck out of this room so I store blocks, games, and puzzles in the boxes under the table. I adore so many things in this room! I was named after the woman in the portrait on the right, and I cherish those two ancient paintings. This room is a fresh spin on family heritage; I think it is timeless yet right on trend. It is the first room everyone sees when we come into this house, and it makes us feel right at home! Would you like a room in your home to be featured as an Apartment Therapy Favorite Rooms post?

'The living room/ dining room space is long and spacious, about 11' x 22' and open to the kitchen. However, the ceilings are very low, only 7' 3' high. Tall friends duck instinctively as they move around the space.... I am looking to choose furniture and lighting to minimize the claustrophobic impression. Any tips for decorating and lighting low-ceilinged spaces on a.Craigslist-to-second-tier-Ikea budget? Darken the floor: either through staining, carpeting or a few darker rugs, a dark floor with 'Drop away' and extend the impression of space from ceiling to floor. Capitalize on the low, decorative aspect of table lamps. We love table lamps, because they offer great, indirect light with a sculptural element. Paint the ceiling white, but apply light color to the walls. Separating the ceiling from the wall will help to create a transition as your eye moves upward.
My kids call our dining room the 'Thanksgiving Room.' My husband says that we should put caution tape at its entrance because I don't let anyone in there. I guess that tells you what you need to know about how often we use our formal dining room! I love our dining room and I'm glad we have it, but truthfully, it's mostly a showpiece, and I think I'm an exception among a generation that has mostly said goodbye to the formal dining room. The coffee table in the living room, the dresser in our master bedroom, even a chest of drawers in our master bath are showstoppers from another era and beloved to me because of whose they were. My entire dining room is an inheritance, from the intricate and once-plush velvet chairs to the custom-made table of mahogany and ebony. I even have the blueprint of the table - how awesome is that?? The head and foot chairs are not only part of my grandparents' set, but were the chairs used by the bride and groom at the wedding of some of our dearest friends. The china and silver that fill the absolutely gorgeous credenza are also passed down to me. We have an expanding table in our kitchen, where we eat all our meals. Even when we have guests, we open up the table and eat there. It's more comfortable, more informal, and much easier to clean. I don't have to stress about water marks on the table or food spilling on antique upholstery.
