Lonny Magazine: May/June

Lonny office

The May/June issue of Lonny went live yesterday – oh yay! I’ve been reading Lonny since its debut in October 2009 and I have yet to be disappointed.

In true Lonny fashion, the most current issue is a beautiful feast for the eyes. From the New York offices of Lonny to New Orleans to South Carolina, this issue covers lovely home, office and outdoor spaces across America.

The Maskros at IKEA

I have loved the Maskros light fixture ever since it made its debut at IKEA. I don’t have a space that’s large enough for it and I haven’t seen it in anyone else’s home…until now.

A friend hung it in her kid’s room – high ceilings, loft-like space – and it looks amazing. The shadows it casts are quite cool too. We had a whole conversation about what to name the shadows on the walls…spiders, snowflakes, stars, flowers. Oh, the fun!

p.s. Maskros, in case anyone wants to know, means dandelion. Of course!
