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.
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
It’s because we do look up so often we want to see something that is a reflection of who we are and what we hold to be beautiful. Space, the sun and the moon, and planets are great influences when it comes to modern lighting. Colorful orbs, metal frames fashioned after the planets and contemporary structures that resemble spaceships are trends that are taking off, as are other fixtures connected to Mother Earth and therefore more organic in nature and feel.
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.
