This got my attention because this is the very light that hung over the dining room table in my parents' home when I was growing up. My mother loved Scandinavian design and when she saw this light she fell in love with it. I always thought it was very cool, and here it was again, 40+ years later, still very cool. But that was not the end. This light keeps showing up everywhere I look, it seems. The pictures below all appeared just this past week on either Design Sponge or SFGirlbyBay, two of the design blogs I read regularly.
Even though my taste in decorating is quite different from my mother's—and I think that was quite intentional on my part—I have great fondness for the things we grew up with and I remember my parents' house, which was a modest suburban '60's style house, as being quite beautiful, serene and calm. Remember the chair? Mom would have been right in style today.
