If you’d like to have this piece of art in your home, a good way to start is to buy their personal lighting products. These lamps are designed by Herman Miller and Yves Behar. Here’s how to buy one.
- Evaluate the space you want to buy the lamp for. These beautifully designed lamps can be used in a home office space, by the computer table or even as a bedside lamp. Make sure the design of the lamp will go harmonize with the rest of its surroundings. Keep in mind that Herman Miller personal lighting products look very sleek, minimal and modern, so it’s best for zen like spaces or homes with a clean, modern look. It may not go well in a space designed to look like a country home or French Baroque.
- Review which style you like. There are three designs to choose from. There is the Ardea, the leaf and Flute personal light. All designs are inspired by the movement of things seen in nature. For example, the Ardea personal light is inspired by the heron, so it looks like a bird.
- Choose the color. The lamps come in different colors, such as red, black and silver. Choose a color with the rest of your room décor in mind, so that it will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your home. If you want it to stand out, then pick red.
