With a spurt in the use of open floor plans with high ceilings the oversized pendant has become a whimsical yet captivating element that delineates spaces and gives them an appeal of their own. They are great additions that turn your favorite coffee table dining space or even the kitchen island into the focal point of the airy living area.
Bedside lights have evolved a whole lot in the last few years. No longer are they restricted to simple table lamps on either side of your giant bed. These new and suspended additions free up space on your bedside tables and even offer you the option of doing away with the tables too.
Design trends often change as rapidly as their counterparts in the world of fashion. Yet once in a while we stumble upon popular style statements that quickly become all the rage across the globe. Freestanding tubs in the bath are one such defining design element of 2014 that we’ve already pondered.
So next time you wish to switch between reading a book to tranquil meditation you will not have to find a whole new room. If the other layers of lighting serve the first purpose of lighting: illumination dimmers serve the secondary purpose of fashioning and accentuating the mood.
In fact the smaller the size of your dining table the greater the majesty of the overtly-large pendant. We find plenty of inspiration here that combines the dome and the drum pendant with the Saarinen tulip table. The curvy design of one obviously complements the other but you can introduce these rounded wonders even in rooms filled with clean straight lines to bring some much needed contrast.
While many homeowners might believe that a large cascading chandelier might be a bit overwhelming for the small dining area you will be surprised at how beautiful it looks when done right.
