Sea Gull Lighting Perryton Pendant

 

The classic openwork pendant light has been a mainstay in traditional lighting design for centuries. This simple silhouette allows for the space around it to not get overshadowed by a big bulky light fixture. The over the top, ornate ironwork chandelier with heavy thick glass shades are a thing of the past while these light and airy open frame lanterns are the present and future.

Decorating for Halloween has become almost as important to some as decorating for Christmas. Why not keep the spirit of Halloween year round with these “spooky” yet on trend light fixtures.

Mummified Lighting

Invoking the feel of a mummy and its bandages, these decorative lighting fixtures pictured above are just as appropriate for Halloween as they are for your eclectic decor. The LED outdoor wall sconce from Feiss Lighting’s Ledgend collection is modern and dramatic, making a statement as trick-or-treaters reach the front door. Also from Feiss, the Woodstock Chandelier in the middle resembles a gigantic spider hanging from its web, while the illuminating light between the large spiders legs creates a beautiful shadow casting along the walls and ceiling. Aptly named, the Roswell Pendant from Kichler continues the mummy theme with its distinctive, linear design and slightly off kilter circles.

Gothic Romance Chandeliers

If the monster aspect of Halloween isn’t your thing, these chandeliers might warm your dark heart. With just a nod to the Colonial past, the Minka Lavery Kingsgate Chandelier features a black finish with gold accents. Quoizel’s Atrium Foyer Pendant brings European style to your space with flowing curves, twisted framework, and elegant flair. Distressed black metal has graceful elegance in the Kichler Basel Chandelier, giving off a modern vampire vibe.

Reminiscent of the iron details often seen in areas of New Orleans, the historic design in this Outdoor Hanging Lantern from Quoizel’s French Quarter collection invokes a different time when most people believed in the underworld and not just one day a year. The Feiss Resplendent Wall Mirror finished in Hi Gloss Black adds a bit of glamour and Victorian romance to your interior, while the forged iron Maxim Canterbuy Outdoor Wall Lantern greets guest in a similar fashion.

This year, Halloween decorating can be the same as usual – with temporary jack-o-lanterns or gimmicky motion sensor monsters to scare the wits out of anyone that come to your door. Or you can step it up a bit and commit to the look full time with one of our Gothic inspired chandeliers, modern wall sconces, or decorative wall mirrors.

Treehouse Love

 

Our latest set from Polyvore features lighting that draws inspiration from the nature around us. These pendant lights, chandeliers, wall sconces, table lamps, and wall mirrors make it easy to bring the outdoors in.

Galactic Pendant Lights

Today is the officially unofficial Star Wars day, May 4th, and we have a few galactic light fixtures to help you celebrate this fan-tastic day. The Minka Lavery pendant is not particularly space themed but its polished chrome finish, dome shape, circular cut outs, and opal glass make it resemble a UFO of sorts. The ELK Lighting Kids Novelty collection features this Space Walk flush mount and Saturn pendant. Perfect for space enthusiasts of any age.

Modern Chandeliers

 

From Kichler Lighting, the geometric Novara Pendant gives a nod to the past with its modern yet relaxed approach to a classic contemporary shape. In the center, the Nitrogen Chandelier from Access Lighting is the perfect modern chandelier for any science fiction fan. With the Crystorama Luna pendant on the right, the two-toned bronze and gold finish combined with the simple shape of a triangle, make this single light pendant the right choice for any modern decor.

The force is strong with these pendant lights and modern chandeliers. Happy Star Wars day from Lighting by Lux.

 

Kichler Lighting Danika Collection

Kichler Danika Chandelier and Mini Pendants

A new year is here (whether we are ready for it or not) and so are new trends in decorative lighting. Just last week, our industry had a big trade show at the Dallas Market Center in Dallas, Texas. This is where the highly anticipated, newest collections are shown and we get to see what our favorite brands have designed for the latest in lighting fixtures.

Several popular style trends from last year have carried over into 2015 – Industrial, Restoration, Modern Rustic, Geometric, and LED lighting. We will see lighting brands offering more collections with these details; some full on and some with just slight nods to the styles. We have quite a few collections from the lighting industry leaders: Kichler, Feiss, ELK Lighting, and Crystorama are worth noting.

Kichler 43587NBR Rumer Chandelier

Kichler Rumer Natural Brass Chandelier

 

In new releases for 2015 from Kichler, we have the Rumer chandelier and Pendalette (a clever name for a fixture that can be hung as a pendant, shortened to a semi-flush, or even mounted as a wall sconce). This 2-piece collection showcases several design details that are big this year so far. The industrial pipe metal frame is finished in a warm Natural Brass paired with the two-tone coloring of a black cord, along with uncovered sockets which look best with an antique style light bulb.

This chandelier and pendant also feature another design trend continuing into this year, pull-down retractable lighting. The cord can be gathered up and clamped together to raise the bulbs or it can be completely untethered. The adjustability factor of this collection with the 3 in 1 light fixture and the chandelier is a breathe of fresh air for lighting to come. We hope the multi-functional usability of lighting will continue and become the standard.

A stunning chandelier never fails to attract attention when you walk into the room. However, you don’t have to have a huge chandelier to make a room better with a hanging light. Smaller chandeliers and other types of pendant lights (such as ceiling fans) can make a huge impact on the ambience of any home without overwhelming the entire space. They add stunning ambience that improves the beauty of the room in which they are carefully placed.

Chandeliers are Decorative Lighting

The most important thing for you to realize is that these types of lights are designed for decorative lighting more than for functional lighting. Understanding this will help you use these lights correctly.

Tips that relate to this point include:

  • Use chandeliers and pendant lights to light specific areas, not whole rooms.
  • Select these types of lights for their beauty and aesthetic appeal.
  • Place these in rooms that aren’t already dominated by other bold interior décor items so that they can stand out as a statement piece.
  • Put these lights in rooms where intimate low-lighting is desirable.

Defining the Chandelier

Let’s start with chandeliers since they tend to be the most impactful lighting option for the home. What exactly is a chandelier? In short it is a light fixture that has a main body off of which protrudes multiple arms and each arm holds its own socket or lamp. A chandelier does not have to be a large and dramatic statement piece of lighting although it can be.
