We’re kicking off a killer sale on Cerno. From now through March 1, 2015, Cerno Lighting is 15% off. Cerno’s selection includes table lamps, floor lamps, pendant lights and sconces. Cerno’s products are made of sustainably forested wood, and they are made in California.  The fact that they are LED makes them energy efficient. In other words, it’s a feel good purchase, which cancels out any guilt about treating yourself, OK?

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but here’s a preview. Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 7.39.16 PM

Cerno Valeo Floor LampThis functional work of art makes a massive statement about scale, and approaches things from its own angles. Technically a floor lamp, it’s more of a drum shade on the world’s coolest stand. The walnut wood adds warm to any contemporary space.

Cerno Cubo Bedside Sconce. This clever piece takes up no wall space and functions as a hybrid. Above, see the way it can swing into task mode. Below, the arm tucks away and behind a polymer shade, creating the mood for something more exciting than reading.

Cerno Muto Large Pendant. Overlapping planes of walnut bounce the light around, cast interesting shadows while the whole piece has modern lines reminiscent of simple and beautiful Japanese architecture.

Cerno Claudo Pendant Lamp. Fast becoming a modern classic, this piece plays with positive and negative space. The Claudo also comes in a wall sconce version.

Industrial Modern: Our Top Picks

Industrial modern is a design phrase that gets thrown around a lot but what exactly does it mean? To us, there is always an element that throws back to the era between the start of the  industrial age and the dawn of international style. Industrial modern style can spring from living in a loft that used to be a warehouse back in the 1930s, adding reclaimed wood with a long interesting history, going a bit steampunk or using pipes as part of shelving structure, adding factory-style windows, providing classic metal stools inspired by 1930s French cafes and more.

A good industrial modern room is never cold — It’s not a sleek lacquer and metal minimalist space.  There’s rough-hewn wood, glints of copper, exposed brick and/or patinaed concrete that add warmth. The story is in the shapes and textures. Here are ten of our favorite industrial modern pieces at Design Public right now.

Swish-ConsoleDesk-Slate.jpegBlu Dot Swish Console Desk. A mix of the powdercoated base and white ash wood hits the right balance.

Gus Modern Vintage Swingarm Lamp. Stainless steel arm and a vintage-y filament bulb. Plus, we prefer the wire hanging down the wall in an industrial modern space. Hiding it in the wall = too fussy.

AcuteHighStool_AmberPlum_Web.jpgBrave Space Design Acute High Stool. This looks like it could have been crafted in one of the warehouse spaces described above, by some modern-day carpenter/welder/all-around Renaissance person who studies the older ways of crafting objects.

Menu Wine Decanter. It has a beaker-like shape and a stainless steel top. 9000539_Wire_Bin_Black_01.jpg_1Menu Wire Bin. It has has a simple wire look. Great for stashing all of your rolled up architectural drawings, toys, towels, flip flops, or, you know, wastepaper.

 

18357_f8e4dbea2cBlu Dot Real Good Chair in Copper. It glints. It changes over time. Its got great lines inspired by flat-packing. Your fingerprints only make it better. Sold.

02774_b294d0de6dDESU DESIGN Aperture Spice Rack. Strong horizontal lines, and the colors of the spices transform it into art.

601000_one_step_up_300dpiNormann Copenhagen One Step Up Bookcase. Yeah, because it looks like a ladder. And it’s so simple.

20593_ba6346d375

LEFF Amsterdam Brick Wall Desk Clock. Because it’s a flip clock. And the font is awesome.
