Hi, I'm Susi and I write for Design Shuffle, a social media site that brings together designers from around the world to share projects and find inspiration. I love visiting design blogs like The Modern Life for inspiration, so I'm very happy to be guest blogging here today. My post is all about modern lighting and how it has a strong graphic look that works well in today's interior designs in modern and contemporary spaces. I love all the strong geometric shapes in modern lighting.
The I Lucci Argentati suspension light is more sculpture than fixture. This free form shaped hanging light would look amazing in a dining room.
Black pendant lights offer a graphic punch in this predominately white contemporary space. The black relates nicely to the dark floors. Love the reflective gold inside the shades.
The Phrena lamp is made from folded Tyvek material but has the feeling of layers of chiffon. Gorgeous as a table lamp or pendant light.
A round or circular light adds a nice graphic pop above a rectangular table. It's always nice to mix geometric shapes in a room for dynamic interest.
Drum shades on pendants are a great geometric shape for lighting in modern living room designs. Adding circles and cut outs to the drum shade creates more graphic impact.
The Tango light by Corbett has a big graphic impact with cut out lines in the bronze globe. This pendant light would create amazing shadows on the walls.
Specialty lighting is essential in kitchen designs. Using half clear glass and half white glass gives a nice graphic quality to this sleek industrial style kitchen light. The globe shape adds curving lines to the sleek space.
Black and white stripes give this pendant light a very graphic look. Shades with geometric patterns, like stripes or dots, have a modern graphic look that works well in a contemporary interior design.
