Ceramic is extremely durable therefore tables with ceramic tops are suitable for any type of environment. You can use them in domestic spaces, offices  as well as restaurants and hotels.

Ceramic is hygienic and non-toxic material, therefore is very much so suitable for dining tables. Water and acid resistant as well as oil-repellent.  Table with ceramic top is an ideal surface for hosting dinner parties ( without fearing of any stains) or just having grand children around( any paint, marker pens or food are easily wipe able and no need to worry about scratches).

Interior lighting is the main aspect of any house design. It is the key to achieve perfect atmosphere in your home; therefore, it is important to pick the right lighting for every room as what works in the living room will not necessarily wok in the kitchen or bedroom. Lighting has to reflect the function and feel of each space. Like any part of interior décor, lighting design keeps changing; manufactures come up with advanced fixtures and bulbs creating the most beautiful pieces.

We have narrowed down the main trends to help you bring some light to your house.

Balancing art

Lighting is one of those complements that when chosen wisely can add style to contemporary homes. Modern floor lamps that challenge traditional ideas about balance, flight and suspension are used in interiors to create drama and establishing a beautiful focal point.
