Quirky Feature Lighting to Brighten up Your Home

Looking for quirky lighting? When it comes to choosing floor standing, side, ceiling, or wall lights, you may not always want to put function above aesthetics. If you would rather have home accessories that are more individual, to express your creative side, you may prefer to invest in inspirational, arty or unusual light fixtures that will serve as an interesting focal point in a room.

Whatever style of light fixtures you select, it's always best to opt for quality, above all else, as you will have a home accessory that lasts. Fortunately, at Angelo's we have a wide range of high quality lighting products at low prices, so you will always find the perfect light fixtures in our showroom.

What are Quirky Light Fixtures?

Quirky means something that is odd or unusual and it can apply to any object or person that digresses from the norm. Modern or traditional light fixtures can be chosen either to blend with your existing decor, or to provide an interesting contrast. But the more sculptural or unusual light fixtures that you choose, the more it will serve as an object of admiration in your home. A quirky light fixture is something that will stand out, and may even be a talking point.

Here we spotlight eight categories of quirky lighting fixtures available through Angelo's and why we expect them to be a popular buy in 2014.

Art Deco lighting – Glamorous Art Deco lighting stems from the 1920's and 30's, and has maintained its visual appeal in the 21st century. Found in many up-market homes and commercial properties, it is a style that represents luxury. Choose from stained glass Tiffany style wall lights or table lamps featuring sculptural figurines and your choice of lighting will double up as a work of art.

Objects and designs influenced by nature is another growing trend which is set to continue in 2014 and beyond.

Vintage style lighting – The word 'vintage' means something from the past that is of good quality. The modern tendency to mix and match styles has kept vintage clothing, furniture and lighting very much in vogue.

Enchanting vintage lighting, such as Venetian ceiling lights, is another trend that is set to continue as it adds beauty to any interior. Although Venetian lighting has long been a classic choice, it is possible to buy vintage lighting that airs on the quirky side – just visit our showroom to see what we have available in this style.

Brass lighting – Recent years have seen a rise in the popularity of brass fixtures and fittings, including brass ornaments and artwork. Although elegant, period style brass wall or ceiling lighting will suit most older-style properties, it also fits in well with this year's contemporary nautical theme – a major interior design trend for 2014. Timeless brass lighting, which has long been a staple aboard ocean liners, provides an eclectic look to a modern home and pays tribute to the designs of the past.

Contemporary lighting – If you have a modern home and want lights to make a dramatic impact, one option is to go for spectacular contemporary ceiling lighting. Dramatic, sculptural chandeliers that are influenced by plant or sea-life, add texture and contrast to an interior and make a fantastic focal point. Creating a big impact with simplicity is another top interior design trend for 2014 which is why contemporary chandeliers are set to be a popular buy.

Bold lighting – This year the rule is 'less is more' when it comes to home accessories. A simple, oversize floor lamp in a bright colour, such as red, immediately draws the eye towards it so it becomes the centre of attention in the room. You can make your lamp stand out further by coordinating it with home accessories in the same colour, such as a red throw, rug or wall art.

A room that is clutter free, where only the most beautiful or dramatic objects are on display, has been a popular design trend this century. However, you don't just have to go for a floor lamp in a bold colour, there are also bright ceiling lamps available that will make just as big an impact.

Natural lighting – If you prefer lighting inspired by nature, there are a wide range of lighting products with shades made from natural materials, and, again, this is a look that is set to continue.

An example of naturally inspired lighting is Capiz Pendants, which are made from translucent white shells from the Philippines. Capiz ceiling lights, featuring cascading hearts, is one example of a light fixture that is distinctive in appearance and adds a quirky, but romantic touch, to a contemporary bedroom or living room.

Children's lighting – Mesmerising and entertaining, there has long been an array of quirky children's lighting on the market to brighten up any child's bedroom or playroom. Choose from pirates, space, princess themes, animals or insects and these lighting fixtures are sure to make you smile. Bright and cheerful, children love this style of lighting, so it will always be popular.

Retro lighting – Retro is a fun lighting choice which is set to dazzle any interior. Choose from stripy and monochrome ceiling pendants or pastel wall lights, and this will provide a fascinating touch to any interior. Mix and match retro lighting and accessories with modern furnishings or go for a complete retro look.
