Mixed materials. Imagine the glamour of old Hollywood combined with contemporary design elements. The mix of metals, crystals, colors, and finishes in light fixtures helps bring a room to life in new and unexpected ways. Lighting fixtures can be as eclectic as any other piece of home décor. If your style is hard to categorize, a lighting fixture with mixed materials – glass, crystal, metal, wrought-iron – may be the decorating solution you need.
Customizable Color: Ingo Schaer of Interior Deluxe, a high-end modern lighting retailer, forecasts that its customers will be looking more and more to customize the shape of their lighting, and more importantly, the quality of light. Lighting like the crystal table lamp by Qis Design has the ability to change the color of light — from functional white to a warmer color to set the mood. But customizable lighting color doesn’t stop at warm or cool light. A spectrum of additional colors is often part of the package.
Be original: Remember when chandeliers used to be comprised of 1000 pieces of lead crystal and they usually cost enough to furnish your entire house? Today chandeliers have come a long way. They no longer have to made of crystal and beads. Nontraditional chandeliers can range from vintage glass bottles to sea shells! If you love crafts you can make your own from a light kit and your imagination. Your local arts and crafts or larger lighting stores will carry do-it-yourself light kits and have ideas for decorating it.
Color-infused glass. Fixtures made of solid glass appeal to homeowners with a modern eye for design. Soft, neutral colors accent the room without overwhelming it. All glass chandeliers are an alternative to traditional light fixtures, though the shape is traditional, the use of all glass makes it edgy. Blue is today’s new neutral lending a quiet sophistication to any room.
