Light­ing fix­tures that dou­ble as dra­matic ac­cents for the home

Light­ing plays a ma­jor role in the tone and mood of a space. Where there is light, there is the in­ter­play of shad­ows and the gra­di­ent of colours. Fig­ures in mo­tion roll along tran­scend­ing light beams and cre­ate op­ti­cal il­lu­sions through­out a room. Dra­matic de­signs give a strik­ing qual­ity to an area that was once non­de­script. Unique styles that cap­ture the move­ment of a free flow­ing art form can be used, not just for il­lu­mi­na­tion but also as an ob­jet d’art for a vast ex­panse. Wall fix­tures come alive once the lights go on and be­come ob­jects of in­ter­est on their own, rigid yet ra­di­ant. For this luxe is­sue, tex­tured light­ing of­fers a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive on lu­mi­nes­cence where the min­gling of gold and white brights in var­i­ous ma­te­ri­als cre­ates a cli­mac­tic ef­fect. The abil­ity of light to al­ter a cer­tain am­bi­ence or aura of an en­vi­ron­ment makes it a vi­tal fac­tor in our lives. It brings to mind the words of the great J.R.R. Tolkien, “Shadow was only a small and pass­ing thing: there was light and high beauty for­ever be­yond its reach.”

Play with luxe el­e­ments through sight and touch. This Venini Curved Glass Chan­de­lier by Carlo Na­son adds a dash of bril­liance to any vestibule
