August 1, 2017 | Ivy Publications

Whether complementing a space or serving as a dramatic centerpiece, decorative lighting is an essential style element of a room. Beyond illumination, lighting fixtures can instantly change the ambiance of a room from classic to contemporary and everything in between. Planning a remodel? The lighting experts at Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery share four on-trend styles to consider for your next project!

– Lighting is often referred to as the jewelry of the home. Fixtures that incorporate sparkly jewels delicately strung along intricate metal framework, as showcased below in the Crystorama “Mercer” chandelier, elegantly make that statement quite literal. Whether used as a centerpiece for the dining room or to create a jaw-dropping experience in the entryway, this fixture design is a great conversation starter.

Pendalier – This new lighting design trend features a chandelier inside an oversized pendant—also known as a “Pendalier.” The Crystorama “Sylvan” chandelier by Libby Langdon Lighting below is a classic example of this design. This daring fixture can enhance a room without overpowering it. Adding a Pendalier to your home gives any space a dynamic and dramatic feel.

Crystal – The use of crystal elements in light fixtures creates instant glamour and casts a wide array of dazzling prismatic colors. Crystal can be incorporated in any fixture—from classic to modern—to complement your space. Known for their dramatic and elegant designs, Crystorama Lighting, like the Crystorama “Hollis” Pendant below, offers a wide array of fixtures with modern crystal expressions.

Mid-Century Modern – Clean angles, sleek form, simple yet beautiful geometric designs are characteristic of Mid-Century Modern. These lighting fixtures like the Crystomara “Bleeker” chandelier below can be used to brighten your living room, add a glow to your spa bath and illuminate your entryway without compromising style.

Whether you decide to take a chance on a new lighting trend or stick with a tried and true design, decorative lighting fixtures that illuminate your space and reflect your personal style are always on trend!
