One of the hottest trends going in decorative lighting design (besides LED) are fixtures made with non-traditional materials including rope, beads, cable, glass and especially natural wood. With increased focus on sustainability, eco-friendly materials have become more popular than ever. This past June at the American Lighting Association Lighting Market in Dallas, most all of the manufacturers had incorporated many of these elements into their new fixture designs.
The Lenio Collection from Eurofase is at home in both traditional and contemporary settings.
The Zen Collection from Fredrick Ramond features cable hung, eco-friendly bamboo and utilizes an LED light source.
The Natural Rope Collection from Landmark Lighting transforms natural rope from a functional material to a unique decorative element, adding color, texture and material that contrasts nicely with the Aged Bronze finished metalwork.
The Quincy Collection from Jeremiah Lighting features wooden beads and burlap shades.
