    • Allows flexibility in levels and areas of lighting

Brass, Nickel and Chrome

  • The second biggest trend of the year: metallic shine
  • Opt for contemporary or classic styles for a modern take
  • Gone is matte
  • Metallic adds unique detail, texture and every day luxury
  • Light bounces and glistens off of metallic fixtures or
  • Frame windows in metallic accents

Abstract

  • Large, sculptural fixtures create an artistic statement and function.
  • Abstract shapes and patterns bring character
  • Coloured lighting can evoke a mood or feeling
    • Opt for blue lighting for a more creative effect
    • Get creative with uniquely shaped windows

Crystal

  • While this trend is not new, it is safe to say it’s become a classic
  • From contemporary to transitional designs, there is something for every style and budget
  • DIY: It easy to decorate with crystals to existing light fixtures

Rustic

  • Country meets urban
  • Relaxed look
  • Rustic finishes are combined with modern shapes and fabrics.
  • End look is more refined

Elegance

  • Think clean lines with luxurious materials
  • A simple shape with  metallic and unique glass accents
  • Sheer or opaque metallic curtains; play with the amount of lighting you want
