Lighting is often an overlooked piece of the interior design puzzle, so we couldn’t agree more with Oscar de la Renta when he said, “The most important thing? Perfect lighting at all times.” A pivotal component in design, lighting quickly is staking its place as a centerpiece of the room. Crystorama, the family-owned design house with a 60-year heritage, shares today’s trends in lighting and the inspirations behind these breathtaking designs
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.
The Ceiling Lights Wood from Threshold, available through Target, manages to be both contemporary and traditional. Priced at $147.28, this chandelier is an easy and affordable way to bring a modern and rustic feel to any room. Find this look in several of today’s top design magazines; a sign your choice is on trend and on point.
When you see a light sculpture designed to increase the visual appeal of a room and define its luminous character, you stop on your way to admire it. It’s the case of the Raindrop chandelier known as “The Pour”, a modern light sculpture meant to illuminate and beautify its chosen location in Tribeca, New York City. Lisa Hinderdael and Dara Huang of Design Haus Liberty worked on the design that was supposed to create a unique vibe in a living room featuring exposed industrial columns on either end of a dropped beam. According to the design brief, the light sculpture was supposed to “create an architectural relationship with the space” while beautifully hanging off the exposed beam.
