The means by which man travels through space has held particular interest for many. For the former kids who built spaceships out of Legos, Lampsplus.com has a fantastical yet simple chandelier. The Elan Starship LED Pendant Light, priced at $1,118, can be considered an investment for those who crave something out of the ordinary. This fixture is energy-efficient and uses 1,782 lumens (with 85 CRI), comparable to a 100-watt incandescent bulb. The overall effect is one of a softer light, creating a quiet yet modern ambiance.
White is red hot. White is the little black d ress of interior design. It is the most versatile shade on the color wheel – equally perfect for an urban loft, a cozy cottage, a kid-filled suburban home or a mountain retreat. White looks great with every wall color and can break up heavy dark wood tones, brightening a space with its color, as well as being a light source. All white glass and hand-cut white crystals bring a vintage feel to a chandelier and is easily paired with a modern room design. Beautiful wrought-iron floral in a high-sheen white finish gives a look that is both modern and retro. An all-white palette can define a vintage space or a sleek modern one.
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.
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.
