It is a common misconception that all industrial style lighting  was all cold, hard edges and worn materials. The latest industrial offerings from Quoizel  challenge that with mainstream appeal in both modern and traditional homes.

 

The Eastvale Collection from Quoizel  lets you create your own personal industrial wow factor. The Eastvalle range shows particular designer flair when placed over a kitchen island bench or dining table. Set within an environment of contemporary white or traditional timber, the look is completed with your favourite pops of colour.

And remember, don’t be a slave to one particular trend. Mixing looks such as Industrial with vintage glamour or classic Scandinavian expresses your individuality and personal style.

LBL’s innovative use of crystal is a wonderful example of how the company adds a glamorous flair to a traditional concept. For instance, the Mademoiselle No. 2 low-voltage pendant (shown left) is a delicate but dramatic fixture featuring a double sheet of Swarovski™
Element Crystals draped elegantly, like fabric, over a simple MR16 bulb. The clear or golden shadow crystals are artfully set throughout a web of sterling silver chain with satin nickel fittings, delivering minimalistic-approach bling. Hanging 8” long and 3” wide, Mademoiselle No. 2 could be staggered in a row over an elegant bar or clustered in multiples to create a breathtaking lighting sculpture in a lobby or at the bottom of a grand staircase; in a women’s upscale spa; or at the entry of a women’s clothing boutique. Singly, the Mademoiselle No. 2 could highlight individual cocktail tables throughout an elegant lounge; or in a resort’s jewelry shop, spaced over bountiful display cases.
“Lots of bling will become even more popular in lighting next year,” predicts LBL Lead Designer Dennis Beard, “In addition to what’s being used now with crystals, we’ll see more and other kinds of sparkle influenced by the newest in jewellery  home accessories and fashion runway trims.”
