Jazzmine Mathieu. Chandelier. January 12th , 2018.
Focal point of the dining room: Chandeliers that are the main attraction of the dining room will never go out of style. Often times an antique fixture in a modern dining room, or a red chandelier in a predominantly white room will give you added visual appeal. Chandeliers can be the centerpiece of discussion at the table or they can be subdued and blend in beautifully with the surroundings.
Upgraded Industrial: one of the lighting trends for 2016 is Lamps Plus’ “upgraded industrial”. According to a company press release, “the warehouse-inspired-movement-cum-mainstream design staple is seeing a bit of refinement.” Look for modern industrial lighting featuring rich tones and alternative metals. Don’t be afraid to invest in the industrial trend either — the look is here to stay for the next few years.
Next time you visit the Palace of Versailles, be on the lookout for this impressive permanent contemporary Swarovski chandelier envisioned by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. The Gabriel Chandelier measures 12 meters in hight and weighs half a tonne. Moreover, the installation is composed of 800 crystal modules, threaded around a stainless steel skeleton containing a led lighting system.
One singular fixture resembling Mother Earth makes a strong statement, and contemporary manufacturer Moooi has created a specific piece that pays tribute to our planet. Designed by Bertjan Pot, the Random Light is huge in size, yet light as a feather. What began as a simple craft project has bloomed into a timeless and widely recognized staple for retailer Design Within Reach. Ranging from $675 to $2,696, and offered in sizes small, medium and large, this fixture is often installed in groups of two or three for a dramatic effect.
