Contemporary Lighting London – Tips on Going Bold and Grand with Modern Lighting

Contemporary Lighting London

To make a design statement in the home, it is not all about buying new furniture or accessories; although this is part of it, it is also about making the best use of contemporary lighting. In London and elsewhere in the country, some interior designers choose to make contemporary lighting very much a feature of an interior resulting in breathtaking individuality. Whether you choose a grand contemporary chandelier, a quirky table lamp, or an oversized colourful floor lamp, an amazing light fixture makes just as much impact as a sculpture or a wall painting and adds real character to a room.

Here we shall take a look at the various types of bold contemporary lighting you can buy from Angelo’s Lighting, London, and share our tips on how to make the most of your interior.

Oversized Contemporary Floor Lamps

An oversized contemporary floor lamp in a small living area or open plan space will be one of the first things you see when you walk into the room. A big, red, adjustable metal floor lamp in an open plan living room, for instance, looks striking against a charcoal grey, cream, white or yellow backdrop and will become a focal point of this space.

Contemporary floor lamps are available in a range of colours and styles and make a design statement in an office or home environment. A brightly coloured oversized floor lamp with a minimalist contemporary shade and stand creates a huge impact when set against the right background. Think of an orange shaded floor lamp next to a bold rug or red armchair - the contrast makes this accessory instantly stand out.

An oversized floor lamp makes just as much of an impact with patterned shades. To make this accessory a feature of the room, one idea is to choose an oversized contemporary floor lamp with a striped shade in an all white living room. A good way to make the light fixture a central part of the design is to pick out the various colours in the shade and add splashes of interest with accessories such as artwork, rugs or throws. Think about layering the lighting too; so if you have one bold lamp, perhaps go for more subtle wall lights, ceiling lamps or side lamps.

And, if you like the idea of oversized lighting but would prefer a more traditional take on a contemporary floor lamp, an oversized chandelier-effect floor lamp still makes a fantastic focal point but the overall effect is less dramatic.

Contemporary Feature Table Lamps

Just as you can make a statement with a contemporary floor lamp, table lamps can also become a design feature in a room. Two oversized matching table lamps on the bedside table in the bedroom not only have an obvious practical benefit but they also provide an immediate focal point.

You can produce the same effect in a hallway or corridor. Hallway table lamps make a fantastic first impression as guests walk in through the door. A large side lamp in a bold colour and with a sculptural base looks stunning on a console table and placing a large mirror behind it will instantly draw your eye to the design.

Contemporary Statement Ceiling Lighting

Another form of bold contemporary lighting often seen in modern London homes is sculptural ceiling lighting. Contemporary ceiling lighting offers a host of possibilities from striking modern chandeliers to beautiful spherical pendant lighting which is sculptural in design.

If you want to make the ceiling light the focal point, go for subtle lighting in other areas of the room, such as discreet wall lighting or small side lamps, so the overall result looks balanced and streamlined. Your ceiling light shouldn’t be the only light source and you may want to supplement this with task lighting, such as a reading lamp, or mood lighting to add atmosphere and emit a cosy glow.

Statement ceiling lighting is available in a variety of forms so you will always find something to suit your taste. From pretty crystal strip lighting which looks stunning above an island workshop in the kitchen, to pendant lighting in designs influenced by science. Pendant lighting influenced by the structure of DNA, for instance, looks striking in a corridor or office environment.
