When it comes to decorating your space, how about adding something that seems to defy gravity and expectation? Upon first glance, a not-so-ordinary mirror can resemble a scrawled out swirl, and a chair of bent steel and epoxy looks like a floating doodle. Like optical art, the lines of a console table or a pendant lamp can play tricks on the eye, forcing you to reconsider the space they command. Similarly, a hand-knotted wool rug defies the notion of stasis and takes on the immediacy of an abstract expressionist painting. With these artistic home options you can turn your white canvas into your creative space.
