A Silver Lining: 14 Cloud-Shaped Homes, Furnishings & Decor Designs

‘The Cloud’ Thunderstorm Light by Richard Clarkson



Another cloud lamp takes an even more dramatic approach, recreating the sights and sounds of a thunderstorm in your living room. Designer Richard Clarkson presents The Cloud, a remote-control or motion-activated lamp and speaker system that “detects a user’s presence and creates a unique lightning and thunder show dictated by their movement.” There’s also a music-reactive mode and a nightlight mode.

Cloud Shaped Lamps by Bocci



Bocci’s cloud-shaped lamps, on the other hand, are more abstract, handcrafted of fabric and glass. Designed by Omer Arbel, the series debuted at MAISON&OBJECT PARIS 2015. “73 Explores a technique whereby glass is blown into extremely heat-resistant ceramic fabric. The process begins by sewing a loose fabric vessel and blowing hot glass inside, granting the glass a formal and textural expression that becomes permanent as it cools. Forced air pressure creates the final form, while the temporary fabric shell provides both a shape and a texture counterintuitive to glass, evoking a formal language we intuitively associate with fabric. A flat LED lamp is positioned to fill the resulting volume with diffuse light, accentuating the perpetual dimensions of the piece.”

Cloud Refuge




The Cloud Refuge is a playful structure hosting up to seven overnight guests at a time. Designed for the biennial panOramas event in 2010, it’s made of wood and plexiglass and sat on the edge of a lake.

Cloud Seating Collection by Jason Phillips



Taking inspiration from cumulus clouds, which “seem infinite in configuration but all have a softness to them,” designer Jason Phillips presents a series of stools that aren’t nearly as soft as they look. ‘Cloud Seating Collection’ is made from fiberglass reinforced with a stone cast inner wall, and are available in black or white for indoor or outdoor use.
