I think it’s a commonly accepted fact that lighting is important first and foremost to…well, provide light. But I love love LOVE how designers have taken things one step further across the centuries by creating what can easily be classified as works of art. You’ll see a mixture of metallics and glass, reflactive surfaces and matte finishes, round and square, tabletop and floor. Heck, some lamps are fashioned directly on TOP of sculptural or figural art works, further blurring the line between utilitarian and decorative. Today I celebrate light, and all the big beautiful fixtures that create it.
