Let’s Get Lit!

Do you pick a modern chandelier as the first thing for a room or the finishing touch?

It’s always the first thing I think and consider. The deciding factors are the style direction you want to go in and how much attention you want to bring to lighting as a statement. When we design spaces, It may be Kitchens, Bathrooms, Dining Room, or Master Bedroom selection of a beautiful statement piece to lit up the space is very important to complete the space. As furniture plans evolve and you figure out the functionality of the space, that’s when the chandelier can be considered. I love one in a powder room. One of the recent powder room we designed, as part of the entire house, remodel, Instead of putting the lights above the vanity or on the side of a mirror, I designed the space with a hanging chandelier in the corner, creating a focal point.

Being a designer what I am often asked why do I emphasize so much on the right lighting?  The answer that I always come up with is when lighting is done the right way keeping the space area, furniture, and ambiance in mind it completely changes the look and the feel of the space significantly.  When lighting is done aesthetically the mood of the hour changes for the good. The monotonous use of the same kind of lights or picking the same line of light everywhere does not appeal to my hunger for keeping the look unique.  Lighting plays a vital role in accentuating the beautiful artwork, rugs, or any construction detail.

Recently while on the lookout for something different and unique in lighting something that really caught my attention was this and very unique & architectural light fixture.  This is not only different in how it looks but its appeal to space where it will fill up will make a humongous change in the decor and add royalty to it.

Likewise, there are innumerable other pendant lights that are beautifully crafted modern chandelier with perfection with that look to appeal.
Each and every house or space when given the right lights will glow and have an impact on an altogether different level.
