Favorite Fixtures: Modern Residential Lighting
Lighting is a key element in the design of spaces, serving as not only functional sources of illumination, but as interior elements that add texture, mood and materiality. In modern interiors, decorative lighting fixtures provide an opportunity to add dimension and highlight forms.
A component of the interior architecture, a lighting plan is developed in conjunction with an effective daylighting and energy strategy, and the selection of surface-mounted, freestanding, and suspension fixtures involves both aesthetic and practical considerations.
So, here are a few noteworthy photos of recent residential installations; click on any image for more information or relevant links.
- Axolight Muse wall / ceiling: the luminous quality of the fabric at this ceiling light adds visual interest at the ceiling plane without requiring depth.
- Cerno's beautiful and efficient lighting fixtures combine LED technology with natural materials and modern forms- view more images of this Mission Viejo installation.
- Artemide // Tolomeo: A classic design in a range of sizes and applications, the Tolomeo's parchment shade brings warmth and functionality to a modern interior.
- Bocci series 28 pendant: The organic, asymmetrical form of the opaque milk glass contained within clear globe creates a soft, subtle light- we looped a single version into a corner above a custom built-in desk designed for the home office space, below.
