Natural materials visually ground a space and deliver instant texture. Look for fixtures styled with hair and hide, alabaster, quartzite, and rattan.
Although neutrals are always in style, color is making a notable comeback. Popular hues include sage green, pale blue, and earth tones. For a subtler infusion of color, consider mixed metal finishes, such as satin brass, brushed gold, and weathered bronze.
LED lighting technology gives traditional designs a modern twist. Crystal chandeliers transform from fanciful to sleek with the introduction of LEDs, which allow for more geometric and edgy designs.
