Modern Lighting Trends in Interior Design
Lighting has always been at the precipice of modern design constantly redefining the interior design world and setting serious trending statements. This year, modern fixtures are hotter than ever showcasing a stylish spectrum of pendant lamps, LEDs, fiber optics, drop chandeliers, and industrial looks.
The days of track lighting, fluorescent bulbs, and torch lamps are out in the cold. Revamp your style with an art nouveau fixture that will have everyone’s eyes glistening in its glow.
Whether you’re replacing the overhead lighting in your living room or looking for a major focal point, modern designers are cranking out options that really bring a futuristic style to your pad. We’re also really digging back-lights that are hidden behind art pieces, televisions, and furniture staples. These little guys add a pop of color to a room lending a hand to creating a brand new look with a simple change.
My personal favorite pick goes to the LED light in an array of options ranging from fiber optic decorative pieces to full-on foyer focal point chandeliers. I’ll also have to throw a little shout out to options made out of unconventional materials from metal and alloys to plexiglass.
Interior Design Trends with Modern Lighting Chandeliers
Modern Chandeliers – Let there be light. AND thus, it was spoken. Modern interior design trends are showcasing some beautiful art nouveau takes on lighting, and in particular, revamps are being made to the traditional classic lighting staple, chandeliers.
Chandeliers are a true testament of refined class and elegance showcasing fine crystals and decadent decor. However, modern times are calling for a new take on these timeless pieces by bringing the bling back in full force with new shapes, pseudo-invisible wiring, and hints of vibrant color options.
Modern chandeliers are shining throughout 2012 as a beautiful focal point and avant-garde twist that takes elegant decor to the next level. Certain shapes are still focusing on the tiered drop with new textural elements ranging from Swarovski crystals to geometric mirrored pendants to razor clam shells or mock opulent opal circles.
By incorporating these new textures and materials, the modern chandelier is learning from its past success and bringing beauty back into the future.
Shape is also key for the modern chandelier. Whether we’re focusing on more angular rectangles with clean lines or a full spiral that screams chic status, the modern chandelier is clearly out doing itself with all of its futuristic renovations.
Other modern designers are going for more sculptural pieces perfectly fusing metal work with deliciously decadent floral or vine motifs. There is something to be truly said on how the chandelier is more than just a lighting fixture. When, in fact, chandeliers are clearly extravagant works of art that combine beauty and severe sophistication.
Lastly, a trend to focus on is the idea of “invisible” wiring or hanging sources. Modern wiring is showing off clear and “fishing line”-esque use in creating an optical illusion of floating orbs. The whim brought on by this trend truly stuns, awes, and shocks the design world and homeowners that require a double take whilst gazing at the playful quality of such design.
Go out and grab yourself a modern chandelier to really liven up the home and take design to the next level. Oh, and be sure to DEFINITELY leave the lights on.
