[ statement lighting ]

LIGHTING HAS taken on a whole new focus in interiors with oversize fixtures taking centre stage. The impact of lighting is often forgotten in a space and a fantastic statement fixture can really step things up a notch and add that special designer detail.

We recently replaced our ugly ceiling fan with this beauty centered over our seating area which really pulled the room together. I love that it's big and the polished nickel finish gives the room some sparkle. I find it makes the pine ceiling look much more chic. 

And a new oversize pendant gives our dining area a bit of an industrial edge and keeps the pale colour scheme from looking too sweet.

Your new fixtures are AMAZING. I agree with you, it is very cool to have the industrial mixed with the softer bits....they really play well off of each other. Great me thinking about my own rooms....hmmmm! xx P&H

I love the first fixture. Love. It. Don't care it's a trend that will scream 2010ish.

Your tiered nickel chandelier is beautiful as well. What a great find. I love to see chandeliers in living rooms.

Where did you find the beautiful industrial pendant?! It looks fantastic.

I have a thing for lighting...and now I'm in lust with yours! Oh, I wish I could get a whole wack of the pendant over your dining table!
