Leave it to the Aussies to make industrial cage lights fresh and interesting via a dose of vibrant color. Steve and Helena Trupp, a Brisbane-based husband and wife team, founded Empirical Style, their online shop, to share their love of “design, travel, creative expression, and being a big different,” they say. “Life is too short for dull decor and spaces that lack ambience and inspiration.”
