Lighting can be the jewelry of the home, particularly when it comes to the centerpiece — the chandelier. When talking about lighting, it's all glass, light source and metallic finishes. In this month's lighting gallery, however, we focused on the unexpected elements one can find in lighting styles — leather, wood, reclaimed materials and more.
Below are a few options when you're looking for that unexpected accent in a lighting fixture that you know will resonate with your customers or clients.
The Atomic pendant from Schonbek Beyond features an orb design dressed in leather strapping with metallic and crystal accents for a contemporary fixture designed to become a conversation piece in
any room. www.schonbek.com
Lafayette, from Varaluz, is sure to set the mood in any room. Optic-faceted crystal beads sparkle around the hand-carved, white-and-gold washed reclaimed wood strips. It also features hand-forged recycled steel finished in Havana gold. www.varaluz.com
The Coastal Living Ombre Wood Bead Chandelier from Regina Andrew features beads in various shades of blue, which drape gracefully in gradient layers, capped with a rattan-wrapped circular frame. www.reginaandrew.com
Chelsea, designed by Robin Baron for Minka Group, features a mix of materials, pairing a metallic foundation with linen shades and riveted leather accents. www.minkagroup.net
The Horgen fixture from Maxim is formed with Ash wood and finished with a natural Uddo oil to create a sculptural piece designed to become the focal point. The downlights enhance the beauty of the wood, while creating a unique lighting effect. www.maximlighting.com
