Design is about light and shade and appropriate lighting is of great importance. Dramatic lighting always tends to produce great photographs. But most often it makes for interiors that are too sterile and touch impractical.
Red can also be a great way to tie everything together in a room that features a LOT of the color. Like the wallpapered space below from from Liz Levin Interiors. What better way to illuminate the room than with a red-based lamp that boasts a white shade?!
Yet these distinct lampshades elevate the aura of their surrounding space even as they stand out gleefully. The best part though is that you can always give one a shot without worrying about major renovations or revamps!
The pendant lamp by British industrial designer Tom Dixon is gorgeous elegant and masculine and comes in three cup-shaped versions – fat tall and wide. The absolute best option is to use all 3 of them in your layout.
Some floor lamps sweep across a room in one dramatic curve. By contrast our first set of floor lamps are more vertically oriented making their mark right where they stand. Take the Cast Floor Lamp from CB2 which adds a glowing industrial look to the space below with its 3-foot shade:
Speaking of fiery hues the Atomic Lobster Arc Floor Lamp from CB2 is stunning with its chrome base and lobster disc (which features a white interior). Use it to add a brilliant pop of color to your space as shown in the mustard gold room below. Note the way it complements tones like Kelly green sapphire blue olive and teal:
