Inspiration - George Nelson Lighting

Room and Board via Remodelista

Kranzbach Spa Hotel, Bavarian Alps

Byron Bay house by Shannon Fricke.

Looking through the lastest interiors, I've have noticed the popular use of lights by George Nelson. Introduced in 1947, these lights are constructed of a steel wire and covered in translucant plastic to emit a soft glow. The sculptural bubble lights have had a resurgence with the Mid Century Modernism followers for some time but they're now popping up in fresh and classic interiors. They're also making an appearance in colour for a limited time.
I haven't found many in NZ -  the occasional vintage one pops up in TradeMe. However, the US and Kiwi dollar is not looking so bad these days - check out Modernica and Room and Board.
