To round out my review of some of the awesomefurnishings and home decor items I saw at the Las Vegas Market, let’s talk about lighting. Lighting can be functional: It can give you vision in an otherwise dark room; It can provide an ideal reading spot; It can help you see your food and friends at the dinner table. But lighting can also be decorative, beautiful and exciting. An interesting lamp can completely change the look of a room, and a unique chandelier can be the centerpiece of a space. So here is a collection of interesting lighting that I hope will inspire you.
This chandelier is part modern sculpture, part theatrical marquis. It could be really interesting in a large, open loft space.
This is kind of a more organic version of the light above. I love the little globes around each tiny light bulb. These pendant lights remind me of fireworks! I love this whole vignette, with the firework-like pendant lights reflected in the mirrors on the wall behind, both in literal reflection and in similar shapes.These pendant lights are also firework-like, but much more mid century modern. They’re striking and sophisticated, but still very playful.Probably the most interesting use of these antler-shapes that I’ve seen.
This task light is a little modern, a little art deco. Kind of reminds me of the Rocketeer!
I love these little table lamps, and especially that they come in a variety of colors! These are also great little lamps. Notice the inverted, open design of the one in the middle.On a more traditional note, I do love this style of light as well. The combination of polished metal and linen shade are very sophisticated. This could be a great light for a formal dining room. I like this one as well, maybe for a living room. (I’m considering it for my own!) This light immediately caught my attention when I walked into this showroom. Such an interesting use of the organic tree branch shapes. I love that the branches are bright gold.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my favorites from the Las Vegas Market. Next week, one of my favorite shops to visit in New York’s SoHo.
