Light Fixtures are one of the important elements in design. They make a huge impact on the mood you like to create in the space and keep your design theme coherent. Fixtures come in different forms: Ceiling Mount – Chandeliers, Pendant Lights, Recess Light; Wall Mount – Sconces & Lanterns; Table & Floor lamps. And choosing great light fixtures is going to be a vital part in this process. Ready to take a whole new approach for doing it?
Here I’m going to suggest you to look beyond the usual, and find something that’s cool and unique; something that you would have never thought you would consider. Break the boundaries and go global! Every country, tradition and culture always has something unique to offer. It could be from their rich heritage or from a new local trend. The advice is “Keep an eye out!”
Light fixtures can make a bold statement or a subtle expression of your design style. When I say bold statement, think of a French Crystal Chandelier hanging over your dining area. When going ‘French’ , you could do either “French country” that’s more wrought iron, shabby chic and cottagey style or a full blown “Parisian” for the unique crystals and rich, magnificent detailing.
Are you looking to create a space that feels warm and cozy with an earthy feel to it? African light fixtures characterized by the intricate patterns, carvings and textures bring about an exotic and rustic mood to your interiors. The usage of dark & light browns infused with gold on textured fabrics adds the needed warmth. The geometric patterns, animal prints and dark wood are the elements that creates wonders if you are in for a dramatic transformation!
Setting up an intimate/romantic space? Moroccan lighting could be the way to go. Their light fixtures are made with colored glass, cut metal and carved wood with tightly packed geometric patterns. The lamps, pendants and lanterns are often handmade. They embody both an elegant and a mysterious design that adds great visual interest to a space.
Be it the bold red colors used in Chinese design or the light and airy bamboo artifacts of Japan, Asian inspired decor simply brings peace, balance, and serenity to a space. The light fixtures from the east use a great extent of beautiful understated patterns and textures. It’s built with a wide variety of materials like silk, paper, bamboo, metal and wood. They help create a perfect harmony between clean simple lines and a few bold accents.These light fixtures make the interiors exude style, charm and elegance.
