TOP TRENDS: Show style and creativity in any type of space.

Industrial-style fixtures can make a statement in any decor. With equal parts vintage and modern, this trendy look is synonymous with charming character. By using a variety of  materials, shapes and styles, industrial-style fixtures allow for immense creativity in decorating.

Hand crafted to look as if they could have come from an early 20th-century factory or warehouse, industrial-style fixtures bring together rustic materials such as wire mesh, steel and wood to make a personal statement. Adding to the multitude of uses and locales for these unusual fixtures, is their ability to assimilate to both indoor and outdoor settings.

What are the current trends in table lamps?        -Peg S.

Today there are many different trends in table and floor lamps. Perhaps the most predominant trend is proliferation of a huge variety of new styles and designs now available on the market.

One of the most notable trends is the use of new LED lighting that is a permanent part of many table and floor lamps. In this type of lamp there is no light bulb in the traditional sense. The LED lighting element is actually a permanent part of the lamp. The extremely long life and high energy efficiency of LED lighting makes this innovation possible. By making the LED a permanent part of the lamp, it is possible to create innovative and versatile shapes and forms that are quite different form more traditional lamps.
