In the past light fixtures were an afterthought, but today’s designers are choosing lighting near the beginning of the decorating process. 

These ideas range from practical to aesthetic:

  • Statement light fixtures  – a sculpture in the room, but choose wisely.  
  • Brass and black finishes –  continues to dominate
  • Natural elements –  rattan and seagrass, stone, rough-cut crystals, and highly reactive ceramic glazes.
  • Warm finishes – paint and furniture colors are being reflected in light fixtures
  • Sustainable choices -fixtures crafted with organic materials; LED and low voltage light options
  • Gold tones – muted golds and matte finishes
  • Light for aging eyes – brighter and more consistent lighting
  • Outdoor lighting –  illuminates space and adds a soft, warm glow.
