Here are some lighting fixtures that are elegant, fun and exciting. I’m sure they’ll light up your life in their own ways. Most of the designers are Italian, but there are Czech, Japanese and Australian firms coming up with some awesome lighting products!
This is Terzani‘s first LED chandelier and definitely creates a grand entrance! Made of thin metal chains and LED lights, the elegant fixture is dimmable and comes in nickel, gold, black nickel, and bronze.
Brainchild of Italian industrial designer Monica Graffeo, the wavy lighting fixture takes its inspiration from the all-American snack – the potato chip. The suspended lighting is wafer thin and casts playful shadows on the surrounding surfaces.
A spectacular cluster of pendant fixtures made of clear and frosted glass hung from braided metallic cords. By varying the combination of colors, glass shapes, quantity of bubbles, strands and length this suspension lamp allows for maximum creativity – and impact on your pocket book!
Twill by Lasvit will glam up any space. Delicate and ethereal, this flowing chandelier of sparkling glass beads resemble puffs of luminescent clouds in the ceiling.
The whimsical Lionfish pendant is made of polypropylene and is available in a range of sizes and colors. I like how the nicely detailed fixture contrasts sharply against a dark background.
Marrying new technology with traditional craftsmanship, the organic cutouts of Earl Pinto’s Leaf pendant are created by skilled craftsmen to resemble decaying leaves in the forest litter.
The crystal shaped pendants look rough chiseled on the outside, but the inner curved surfaces are precisely cut to refract light at all angles. So even when the fixture is off, the pendant still captures light and reflects it in a myriad directions.
The Italamp fixture looks like a bunch of loosely tied ribbons but it’s made with PVC strips. It comes in large variety of colors: violet, green, red, fuchsia, white, or dark gray and is finished with sparkly Swarovski crystals at the ends.
Intended to be an abstract representation of bamboo shoots, each tubular glass is unique in length and shape. The rows of glass, with their organic forms and vibrant colors, help create the ambiance of a natural forest.
Japanese firm Nendo puts an unexpected spin on Growing Vases. With the blower pipes representing flowers and stems and the glass bulbs their vases, the design has visually turned the plant cycle on its head!
I close out the post with this light fixture, one of my most popular Pinterest pins. The Czech manufacturer Brokis has a lighting collection called Memory that comes in an amazing 3 sizes, 8 colors, and is available as a ceiling or wall lamp. A bonus feature – you can use the hanging cord to toggle the light on and off so no wall switches are required!
