It’s that time of the month when we share our latest custom calendar, hopefully inspiring you to stay creative in your everyday endeavors! Our muse for this month’s calendar is an iconic Eames sideboard from the 1950s; made from birch plywood, laminate, lacquered masonite, chrome-plated steel and enameled steel. This furniture piece manages to inspire us more than 50 years later, exemplifying the timeless nature of unique ideas. As we usher in a new year, may you continue to embrace creativity and accomplish everything you dream of! As always, don’t forget to #LIVthewallpaper on social media to show us how you are integrating this month’s custom calendar into your creative space!

If you’re working in the building design profession and you haven’t heard of the name Matthew McCormick yet, you’re probably living in a hole…albeit a very nice hole. Since launching Matthew McCormick Studio in 2013 his highly acclaimed light fixtures have become a hit within our design community and his talents have been sought after worldwide.  I had the honor of working with Matthew on a project a couple of years back and I’m excited to be working with him once again. We recently met up for coffee to talk about work and engaged in a fun and inspiring Q&A session.

What sparked your interest in lighting design?

I believe lighting has always had the ability to evoke an experience and set the tone and atmosphere of a space. When it comes to decorative lighting, it also has the ability to be the centerpiece and focal point; illuminating a room with art. Although I’ve always been a bit of a tinkerer, l always had an affinity for lighting; creating sculptural pieces that came to life when you turned them on.

We like to ensure that your digital workspace, much like your physical one, remains inspired and creative. Download our latest custom calendar for the month and #LIVthewallpaper with us! This month’s wallpaper is an interesting juxtaposition between the wild side and a domestic existence. The sofa pictured is the Luca Sofa which was also featured in our recent furniture board, and as always we integrated a touch of greenery to introduce a natural exuberance to the wallpaper.
