We want a couple of these Mila7 lights by local designer, Matthew McCormick. It’s easy to imagine them hanging above our at-home workspace.

The Mila7 is also available in black, white and brushed brass finishes with customizable drop-lengths (upon request), and can be purchased locally from McCormick’s Gastown studio.
