|January 9, 2013||Posted by Rachael under Trend Watch|
Modern design – You either love it or you hate it. For those who are the former, a plethora of modern home décor choices have surged onto the market in the recent years. From Eames and Bertoia chairs to midcentury credenzas, modern enthusiasts can mix and match both vintage pieces and new designs in their homes to create a one-of-a-kind look. What better way to highlight your great finds than with modern lighting?
Modern lighting is very sleek and streamlined. These lamps, pendants, and chandeliers usually have a very simple design that compliments the other elements of the room.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite elements of modern lighting to inspire your next room redesign.
1. The classic arced floor lamp is a staple in small city apartments and large lofts alike. Pair with a chair for reading or use in place of a chandelier over a table. Get the look with a Sonneman Arch Light.
2. Radial orb light pendants look great in living rooms and dining rooms. They are also perfect for bathrooms as they give off pure white light, ideal for applying makeup. Shown – Sonneman Orb 10-Light Radial Pendant.
3. Large rounded streamlined pendants compliment the wood and stainless steel of the kitchen while balancing out the harsh, square edges often found in modern design. Shown -ELK Lighting Organics 5 Light Bamboo Pendant.
4. Break up a neutral color palette with multiple pink pendants over the kitchen island. This added splash of color is sure to be the center of attention. Get a similar look with the ELK 1 Light Pendant in Satin Nickel and Fire Red glass.
5. The extremely popular orb cluster light has been heavily featured in magazines, on home blogs, and on design television shows. Get a similar look with the Sonneman Orb 19-Light Cluster.
6. Long, metallic pendants offer a very distinct look. Homeowners can use these pendants over the kitchen island, bars, and in the bathroom. Get a similar look with the Progress Lighting one light flex track system.
