Illuminati Technique

This shop can grab anyone's attention with its controversial name “Illuminati” which actually means “elite lightings,” and as its name says, they offer lights in fantastic varieties—from whimsical, larger-than-life light bulbs to frosted dangling icicles and the sunburst of convoluted, retro-style sci-fi chandeliers. Do check out the lighting fixtures with fantastic lighting controls, too. If you have questions or concers, you can consult with the lighting designer in the store as well. Illuminati Technique also offers custom-made pieces.

As you enter the showroom, bursts of orange, hot pink, apple green and blue will welcome you. Some of the furniture pieces that you need to see are the double decks and bunk beds that can complete your child's room and the fun side tables, too. Most furniture pieces also have built-in storage compartments, like the Billy Staircase Cabinet that matches the Billy Bunk Bed. Given the hidden compartments, you don't have to worry about clutter and mess taking over the rooms.
