Whether you are opting for classic chandelier look or going for a metallic minimalistic vibe pendant lights cover the entire spectrum with ease. They also are great additions as accent installations that bring in bright pops of color in a bedroom with cool muted tones. Adding textural geometric and even visual contrast pendants make perfect bedside lights.
The popular and beloved pendant lamp is designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Italian design label Kartell. The shade is a transparent and colorful cut sphere reminding of soap bubbles.
Floor lamps work well both indoors and outdoors and with growing number of residences opting for lavish patio and deck spaces and open living plans they are often the ideal lighting choices. Ergonomic stylish and practical they do seem like a ‘must have’ for every modern home.
This creation by Villa Tosca Design for Slamp is another example of light and airy presence over the dining table. The stylized shade in red green or white inspired by vegetation forms surrounds the light source like a nest of delicate paper cut filtering the light indirectly for ambient effects. It is a neat original and convenient designer lamp which adds refinement and extravagance in a light and purist to slightly retro layout.
They also seem to rid you of the hassle of finding lampshades that match the exact color and shade of your existing accent tone. A bedroom with white and yellow or a living room in grey and green no place is too alien for the black lampshade!
Apart from freeing up precious space they can also allow you to use your bedside table in more ways than one. With the table lamp gone you can decorate the table with vase arrangements a collection of framed photographs or even use that space to stack up your favorite titles that carry to bed each night. For the workaholics among us it leaves some space for the laptop or even the smartphone along with the latest iPad!
