Sometimes less is more when it comes to lighting. Meet the simple Beckett lighting line from Washington, DC, interior designer Darryl Carter, which looks mod now (and will not look dated in the future). It’s his latest design for Urban Electric, a South Carolina company specializing in bench-made lighting fixtures with classical profiles.
