dangling architecture
Strands of shimmering oversize circles create much-needed structure within an open layout. The kitchen and dining areas remain visually linked but are subtly split. A full row of these earring- like discs anchored on a skinny rod has a screen effect.

sheer versatility
See-through curtains are a great way to add intrigue to a cozy space like a studio apartment, where an opaque alternative could make things feel claustrophobic. These linen panels, available in a range of hues and lengths, artfully veil a sleeping zone from the living room (and nosy guests). We left a three-foot gap between two panels to simulate an entryway.
