Lighting can be sculptural: Often times chandeliers are thought of as brightly illuminating a space. Recently chandeliers have taken on a lighter and airy nature in forms of small candles and subtle lighting sources. Your dining room may be in an open floor plan concept and it receives plenty of light. Use chandeliers as artwork and sculpture as opposed to having to be the obvious lighting source. The more you blur the lines of traditional and contemporary the more you will love your dining room space! Local artisans in your area may have creative chandeliers to make your dining room unique and special.
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.
Sculpture for the home. The latest trend is lighting as a sculpture for the home, truly making it a focal point, similar to art. Design inspirations for these types of fixtures come from sculptures and other artwork. Not everyone can afford a piece of artwork for their home, and most don’t know where to start. An elaborate light fixture can be the focal point of the point, whether it’s hung over the dining room table, kitchen buffet, or in the foyer. Lighting fixtures can be as varied as art itself, helping homeowner express their personal style and design choices.
Malleable Metals: Modern home retailer, 2Modern’s, top lighting trend for 2016 is the malleable pendant or chandelier.
