Decorative lighting in both small-scale and large-scale commercial projects
Commercial decorative lighting using LED lightbulbs
Decorative lighting is one way that architects and designers can bring out the personality of an interior. As opposed to architectural lighting, decorative lighting is both functional and beautiful, and offers a variety of design opportunities in commercial interiors. Such fixtures can be extravagant, such as large-scale installations in hotels and airports, or simple, like pendant lights over a bar. Some top decorative lighting manufactures and suppliers are Flos, 3M Architectural Markets, Koncept, Artemide, Focal Point, Tom Dixon, 3Form, Moooi, Foscarini, Leucon, Global Lighting, Fire Farm, Boyd Lighting, and Rich Brilliant Willing. These imaginative companies have pushed the boundaries of decorative lighting so that there is a product out there for just about any project type.
Popular decorative lighting fixture styles include pendants, sconces, chandeliers, desk lamps, task lights, floor lamps and wall mounted lights. Lighting is a very important element in the design of an interior because it can easily set the tone for the space. Lighting can be modern, or help to set a more traditional tone. Hospitality projects may see clusters of decorative lights placed together for effect, while a more practical setting like healthcare would use lighting to create a calming and clean atmosphere. The biggest trend in lighting is LED bulbs, which are energy saving and long-lasting, but incandescent and fluorescent lighting are also available.
