Combine Form and Function With an Unforgettable Statement Light Like This

Who: Kirsten Blazek, interior designer

Where: Los Angeles, California

Why we love this pic: The clean, pared-back style of this dining room, complete with an airy mid-century table and chairs, might make it tough to add personality without sacrificing its minimal style. That is, unless it didn't flawlessly combine form and function with that unforgettable statement light. Its striking, fluid design adds the perfect amount of movement and intrigue to this streamlined look.

The takeaway: Combine form and function to infuse a pared-back design with personality.
