When designing a room, lighting is so important — especially decorative lighting. This kind of residential lighting is one of our designers’ favorite ways to add a decorative element to create a strong visual impact and adjust a room’s mood. Lighting choices in your home impact the ambiance of each space, so it’s important to guide your selections based on the mood you want to create.
As any other selection in each of our projects, the decorative lighting selection needs to relate to the general concept of the home. For this dining room, for which we shared a few details about in a previous blog post, our interior designers wanted a light fixture with an extraordinarily stylish design to create a bold impact. It was very important for the modern dining room lighting to be unique.
Modern Dining Room – Design Intent
The Chord pendant from AlexAllen Studio was exactly what our designers were looking for. The Chord pendant gave us the opportunity to go bold in pattern and color to complement the materiality in the dining room as well as the straight lines of the table and buffet piece we selected. When the light is turned on it creates a subtle glow, enough to provide light and to enhance the brushed brass finish selected. This Alex Allen Studio addition provided the perfect finishing touch for this room.
With our color blocking concept in mind, we wanted to find a fixture that had a minimalistic, yet impactful design. We found the Chord Pendant and immediately we fell in love with it. “ Lead Designer – Marianna Cerullo
