Design Style Guide 101
We know that choosing light fixtures that match your home décor is crucial to not only getting that Instagram worthy room, but also for the room to feel comfortable and practical. Modern, industrial, shabby chic….and the list goes on. With an abundance of unique design styles, it can be daunting to decipher which style will work best for you. We are here to help you learn a bit about each of the styles and how they differ from one another.
Modern is a broad term that usually refers to a design with clean, crisp lines, a simple color pallet and use of materials that can include glass, metal and steel. This simplicity means the light fixture is sleek and there isn’t a lot of clutter.
Contemporary and Modern sometimes get confused with each other. Contemporary is different than Modern because it describes design that is based on here and now. Contemporary is more fluid and doesn’t always necessarily have to commit to one particular style.
Just as the name implies, industrial draws its design from a warehouse or an urban loft. There is a sense of unfinished rawness to the style which can mix unfinished wood with metal.
Transitional is a style between Contemporary and Traditional. Transitional lighting is typically ornate with classic lines and made out of materials that never go out of style.
Vintage-inspired design is timeless. Traditional but not bound in the past. Distressed but glamourous.
We hope this has helped you in choosing which style of lighting is most suited to you and your home.
