More than just a light. Long gone are the days when the only source of light was a single pendant with the occasional lamp. We now have a large variety of lighting, from LED down-lighters to grand chandeliers and as the choice has increased, so the prices have become more competitive. Well-planned lighting is the key to the success of any interior design scheme and is often overlooked. Lighting should be layered so that a different mood can be created by combining different types of light at different times of the day. This is especially useful if a room performs more than one function, which is often the case in an open plan space. Indeed lighting can be used to help define areas within an open plan space.
However, lighting shouldn’t just be seen as a source of light. It can also be a work of art as in the case of this beautiful modern chandelier. It can be the focal point of a room creating that ‘wow’ factor in an unusual way. This light couldn’t fail to impress and be a joy to look at every time you turned it on. Be flexible with your lighting choices and don’t only think of down-lighters and lamps, because as great as they are, there are some amazing lighting designs out there which will truly take your breath away.
