    15 Pedestal Decor Ideas – What to Put on Decorative Pedestals

    Thomas Loof When decorating any room, there comes a time when it feels like you should be finished, but it still just seems like something is missing. You can usually identify the problem by scanning the periphery of the room: an empty corner, bare walls, flat proportions, etc. And while artwork, sconces, plants, and accent chairs and tables can definitely help, pieces that offer variety in scale to both break up and balance out the anchor items are usually the solution. Enter: the pedestal. A cross between sculptural artwork and a handy surface to prop up decorative objects, the pedestal is a designer go-to for small entryways, awkward nooks, and…

    Hotel Terrestre wins Wallpaper* Design Award 2022

    Hotel Terrestre peeks out of the rich foliage of Mexico’s Puerto Escondido, earthy, strong, almost elemental, and at the same time otherworldly.

The open layout and glass partitions meant he could see all the way from the bed to the ongoings in the bathroom — and beyond.  “It was not only that you were fully exposed when you were in the bathroom, but you also had floor-to-ceiling windows that looked directly into the office building…
