If you are like me and light candles constantly, than you appreciate the necessity of luminaries for your outdoor spaces. The Luau Portable Lamp is lit by a 50W equivalent LED that can last 6-10 hours once charged. It can be lit while on it’s charger and it lights up automatically when lifted from the base. This would be perfect for a stroll down to the lake front in the late hours.
The semi translucent capiz shells are illuminated from within by central bulbs. The large chandelier would be perfect for a sun bleached Caribbean getaway house that is larger than life. The feminine lines and delicate shape of the Capiz Drop Chandelier suits the characteristics of the capiz shells it is adorned with. If you wanted to add formality to a fixed kitchen island, this fixture would be a wonderful touch draped over your slabs of carrera marble. Oh my, why not have it installed over your soaker tub, you know you want to.
I don’t believe I have seen this exact lighting fixture in an application I haven’t loved. The Fortuny Ceiling Light is the gorgeous design by Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo, and it is available in a number of sizes, colors and patterns. The larger sizes make the best statement and they never look out of place over a dining room table. Sophistication, refined techniques, a high quality finish and attention to detail are the distinctive features of each original lamp.
Inspired by the sight of dense shoals of fish, Dominic Bromley has designed Shoal. Continuing in his sculptural work with fine bone china, his latest design takes full advantage of the diverse qualities of this beautiful ceramic material. A mass of bone china fish, each 16cm(19″) long and carrying delicate sculpted detail, circle a central light creating a captivating cylindrical form. 40” high
I just love the swirls of lights that burst from this accent light fixture! Each Moonstruck Light is unique. The light inside the balls casts a light / shadow pattern on the surrounding walls and ceiling.
This 9” diameter magical light is hand-made, constructed of glazed and stylishly perforated porcelain.
The Garland Light by Tord Boontje has been awarded for best light as well as the Metropolitan Home readers’ choice award for Futuristic classics, and obviously so, it has gained my attention for its’ beautifully cascading arrangement of brass-finished laser cut floral designs. When lit, it almost appears to be swarmed by a host of flittering botanicals, in the same way that June bugs try to bask in the warmth of a single post lamp on a summers’ night.
They can really light up anything these days, so think like Kanye at the Grammys and get creative kids. Dramatic and fun, the Cherry Blossom Branch with Decorative Flower Lights works as a great accent light for anything from a pretty guest suite, to arrangements flanking either side of a fireplace. 35 decorative flower lights bloom over the branches for a fantastic evening look.
Tripod floor lamps are hot right now; they blend in seamlessly in a converted loft, in an artsy up-town office, or your home library/ den. I love the nickel finish and the overly emphasized industrial feel of theRoyal Master Sealight Floor Lamp from Restoration Hardware
Every room in your house should have something in common; spectacular lighting! In living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, and kitchens, you should have three types of lighting:General Lighting: This is the general light that highlights the size and use of the room at hand. Pot-lights, ceiling fixtures or even chandeliers may serve in this purpose. Always have your general lighting on a dimmer switch so you may control the ambience, then your dining room table can serve as a craft table or to set the stage for a truly romantic evening.Task Lighting: This type of lighting refers to reading lamps, stair marker lights, under-cabinet lighting, and basically anything that will help you see better for performing a particular task.
New and terribly dramatic for its size, this crystal and black lighting fixture is just perfect for your foyer or entryway. I love the details, the scrolls of black and beads of crystal makes this chandelier my top pick for a small to mid size entrance.
