Illuminated Design

 

By Jeremy Martinez

WITH SO MANY lighting options, choosing the right fixture for a space can be difficult. However, the proper lighting can illuminate the specific style of any room.

An industrial-type fixture fitted with Edison bulbs is one option that is trending in hip, urban lofts as well as suburban homes. This industrial style takes a twist with blown glass pendants sporting the look of Mason jars. Glass shades suspended on black fabric cords of different lengths create a centerpiece in the room.

With natural elements on-trend in home décor, try a warm, nature-inspired style. Ribbon-like knotted wood veneer creates a dramatic light fixture. Choose a natural wood tone or a colorful one—either way it adds an organic feel to any space.
