Lighting is an important element in the choice of your interior design
From traditional homes with classic decor, to luxurious homes that call for a crystal chandelier, to casual and contemporary spaces, light always plays a vital role...
In exceptionally modern homes, sleek chandeliers and pendant lights are stylish creations that will have guests staring at the ceiling.
Casually decorated homes may feature a mix of functional fixtures such as ceiling lights, sconces and recessed lighting, while transitional homes benefit from a combination of casual and contemporary fixtures.
You'll also find a number of lighting designs tailored to specific decorative themes, includingScandinavian design lighting orretro-inspired mid-centurymodern lighting.
Lighting, a functional work of art
Lighting is often thought of as simply a functional part of our home, but many fixtures can serve as contemporary works of art. Intricate shapes, clean lines and bright or soft lighting create impressive styles that become a fundamental part of a room's design.
Whether it's to create a decorative theme, provide focused, task-specific lighting or add ambiance with general, warm lighting, lighting is necessary for any space and your everyday functions. With the right modern lighting fixtures in place, you can transform a fairly mundane-looking room into one rich in style and design.
Modern lighting fixtures for every space in your home
Whether you use it as a decorative element or as a purely functional light source, lighting can and should be present in many rooms of the house.
The dining room is the perfect space to showcase with an elegant chandelier hanging over the table, while the kitchen might be better suited to an assortment of mini pendant lights or island lighting to add some flair to the room's design. Another often overlooked addition to kitchen lighting is under-cabinet lighting, which illuminates countertops and makes food preparation easier.
In the living room, part of creating a comfortable gathering area is the right combination of floor lamps and table lamps, as well as lighting to highlight specific areas of the room.
Bathrooms benefit from the addition of wall sconces and bath light bars, which work in conjunction with natural light sources to provide sufficient illumination for everyday tasks.
For home office lighting, productivity starts with a perfect modern desk lamp, and in smaller, low-ceilinged spaces like closets and hallways, consider a ceiling light or recessed mounts.
How to choose the best lighting for your home
With a wide range of sizes, shapes, finishes and colors, choosing the right lighting can be a difficult decision. First, you need to determine the function of the lighting you need: is it general lighting in dark areas of the home, or do you need targeted, directional lighting to help you with certain tasks?
Once you have determined why you need a light fixture, you will want to measure the space where it will be placed. Review the dimensions of the light you are interested in to best estimate its height, diameter and weight. You should also check the type of bulb required for the light fixture to make sure you are prepared with the right set of bulbs.
Wall lights and lamps
Sconces and swivel arms are the perfect way to add layers of light and get the light source exactly where you need it to read, work or focus on the artistic side of things.
Whether your style is traditional, modern, Tuscan, French, antique, industrial, nautical, shabby chic, artisanal, flea market, contemporary or eclectic, Delisse has the right wall sconce to add flair and style to your room.
From elegant to simple, rustic to bohemian, in your hallway, bathroom and living room, wall sconces are a beautiful way to light up your space. Our families of chandeliers and wall sconces make it easy for you to choose fixtures that work perfectly with each other.
The lighting of the chandeliers
Chandeliers have evolved and it's time to think beyond the traditional dining room chandelier! The lighting versatility of chandeliers have allowed them to venture beyond formal rooms and serve not only as a striking visual centerpiece, but also as the primary source of illumination for most rooms.
A unique, unusual and fun chandelier can set the tone for an entire room and enhance its surroundings. At Delisse, we have created a selection of truly distinguished chandeliers that span the full range of today's interior design styles.
Expect the unexpected when you explore our collection of chandeliers.
