Our current sales are so big, it’s hard to keep track. Don’t let any pieces you’ve been saving up for slip through the cracks. Artek is an modern furnishing brand established by the legendary husband and wife team of Alvar and Aino Aalto, along with art promoter Maire Gullichsen and art historian Nils-Gustav Hahl in 1935. They were way ahead of their time, leading the design pack and creating beautiful modern pieces destined to become icons. Here are some of the modern icons by Artek, currently 15% off at Design Public.  

Artek_stool_60_birch.jpgArtek 60 Stool. Designed in 1933 by the great architect and home furnishings designer Alvar Aalto, this simple stool is a very early example of functional modernism. It’s look is timeless, and it’s also available in the E60 version which has lacquer and linoleum colored top options.


Artek Siena Trays. If you have a lot of design-loving friends, I highly recommend stocking up on a few of these to use as gifts for them. This purchase will be a great bang for your buck.


Artek A330S Golden Bell Lamp. Bring a shiny piece of the fabulous Savoy Restaurant (Helsinki) to your home. Originally designed for the establishment in the 1930s, its elegant form is timeless.


Artek A110 Pendant. If a simpler style and finish is more your bag, try the cylindrical lines of the A110 Pendant. Available in black or white, it has just a hint of bling at the rim that helps bounce the light around.

Artek_69_Chair_birch.jpgArtek Chair 69. A straightforward birch piece, this chair is great for modern dining rooms, farmhouse kitchens or colorful playrooms alike.

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.




The Cerno Silva Giant Floor Lamp. This floor lamp has a dramatic base that appears to defy gravity.


The Silva also comes in regular size
