As we have said earlier any one type of lighting installation cannot perfectly light up your entire home. But adding several layers of lighting is not the easiest task in the world as these installations need to work in tandem to deliver the best possible result.
Hang a group of 3-4 in a row over the breakfast bar or an irregular cluster over a round dining table. A lamp for fashionistas Le Soleil by Foscarini is suited in a semi-minimalist and trendy dining room with flashes of colors here and there.
What I like a lot about these lamps in addition to their versatility is the fact that the feeding cable has a significant visual role in the ensemble.
A very original and beautiful lamp it has the surprising advantage of sound-softening quality and of covering –and hovering- over a large part of your dining room. A creation of Marcel Wanders for Flos this extravagant pendant lamp draws its inspiration from a thick spider web covering a torchere style chandelier.
The emphasis in contemporary design is so heavily placed on neutral tones and muted shades that we often forget to look at the bold contrasts. For gorgeous modern interiors to appear as appealing as they do one needs a touch of color and a dash of ‘drama’ here and there. Black is a pretty good choice in this regard. With white and grey being popular backdrops in current homes black makes for a perfect accent color.
Black is a color that works particularly well for lampshades and lighting fixtures. By inducing black in the form of lampshades one can rest assured that there will never be a dull corner created due to the use of a ‘darker tone’.
