Up Your Lighting Game!

Jul 31, 2020

While we may be still enjoying the sun, the sand, and all that summer has to offer, it could be a good time to get your home ready for those days when dusk comes a whole lot earlier. Beautiful lighting is always in style, but this year we are seeing some stunning new ideas to get you thinking about the how you can up your lighting game come Fall. With so much new product coming our way, we thought we’d show you a few of our favorites to get you inspired!

From one of our favorites, The Urban Electric Co.

Mix it up! We love how our favorite vendors are using more mixed materials, blending hi-tech with natural beauty. This gorgeous new take on a classic globe pendant by Allied Maker uses warm, buttery walnut with matte black and soft milk glass to create a stunning overscale pendant! We used multiples in our latest Hamptons project to really punch up the wow factor!

Let your light shine through! Soft golds and brushed brass are hot as ever and warm up any space. We are using it for kitchens and baths as well as foyer and dining room statement fixtures. This beautiful sconce by The Urban Electric Co. takes a modern approach to vanity lighting. Two sconces on each side of the mirror keep lighting soft and even. We also love the option to custom color the back plate!

Glam Squad! Take a cue from the Kardashians’ designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, “More is Everything!”. Inky blacks with sensuous curves brushed with gold make a big, bold statement with this chandelier from his namesake collection by Corbett Lighting. Hovering above a living room or a large round dining table, your guests will be ready for their reality tv close up!

Geometry for All! Not just for sophomores anymore, we are seeing intricate geometric inspired lighting making its way back into the home. By keeping it open and airy, these dodecahedron beauties take space while allowing the light to cascade through.

Woven Wonders! Annnnnd it’s back! As we mentioned in our round up of the hottest trends in décor, woven materials and caning are big this year, and the lighting category is no exception. This Georgia Linear pendant by Becki Owens for Hudson Valley Lighting has exquisitely crafted cane panels in a matte black “frame” giving it a fresh take on her trademark bohemian style!
