Modern Lighting: Mix Metals
Mix metals in shining copper, chrome, and gold make for drool worthy modern lighting. Hang these luxurious lights as a metallic treat in your home. I may treat myself to one or two of these modern metallic pieces.
The iconic shape of the Orient Pendant Light from Lightyears has remained the same since its original design in 1963. The copper construction is subdued, making this guy a great option if you’re looking for something more subtle rather than flashy.
If you’re like me, then there’s no such thing as too much silver and gold. The Etch Shade Pendant from Tom Dixon puts on quite a show once illuminated. Grab it in brass, copper, or silver to go with your décor.
Modern lighting goes retro-glam with the super metallic Precious FL/Y Suspension Lamp by Ferruccio Laviani, from Kartell. These metallic pendants shine in reflective gold, copper, and chrome finishes. This pendant can hang solo but really sparkles when grouped together in mixed metals.
Who says recessed lighting can’t shine? The Tools Trimless Eyeball 5.5 Inch Recessed Light from Fabbian in copper is dazzling. With its unique shape and innovative design, you may want to replace all of your recessed lighting now.
Adriano Rachele has created an opulent pendant that gathers attention, even when it’s not lit. But once the Veli Metallic Large Suspension Light from SLAMP is on, it creates a glow that’s flashier than the tinsel on your Christmas tree.
Would you ever guess that these pendant lights are made from recycled fire extinguishers? The Tank Light from Castor Design is plated in dripping metallic finishes. We absolutely love the use of reclaimed materials made chic.
