Organic shapes and images make us feel closer to the Earth, and online emporium Ballard Designs taps into that desire with a light fixture that recalls both the sea and the Earth. The Airlie Coral Pendant has a genuine seaside flavor and was cast from real found coral, creating a realistic, natural texture. The striking pendant works in both contemporary and traditional settings. Priced at $599, it looks luxurious, belying its more moderate price point.
Russian designers Anna Strupinskaya and Alexey Ivashkevich have presented their new product Symphony Lamp Chandelier during Milan Design Week 2014. The concept of the chandelier explores the connection between light and sound waves and their resemblance. For this project, light, color and sound are visualized in three interlaced spatial ribbons.
Of course, traditional tiered crystal chandeliers never go out of style and some manufacturers are adding a modern twist on the idea by creating pieces made of more organic materials such as wood or substituting wood beads for crystals. Many retailers, including several mentioned above, offer such chandeliers starting at less than $150.
