Materia Designs

Lighting is something that truly changes a space.  Lighting fixturesare one of my favorite details in design, adding warmth and comfort to a room.  A beautiful fixture is like a piece of art.  Materia Designs has picked up the lighting game, creating insanely beautiful and special pieces that are art. With a mix of furniture, lighting and accessories owners Megan and Matt have created something special and unique. Using natural elements and materials in a modern and minimal way has worked perfectly and set them apart from other designers.  I was so taken back when I was first introduced to their work and can't wait to incorporate a piece of Materia into one of my own spaces one day. I love learning what designers themselves love so I was thrilled when Megan shared her design essentials...
