Here are four dramatic designs to consider this year.


With 2018 well underway, it's time to start thinking about the lighting fixtures you'll use on your projects this year. In this article, we'll take a look at four designs from The Lighting Centre.

If these new fixtures are any indication, 'dramatic' is the name of the game in 2018. Of course, this makes sense. If you want to add an element to a room that stops guests in their tracks, you'd be hard-pressed to find something more effective than a dramatic light fixture.

In terms of placement, it seems that larger, individual pieces are the best option for lighting over a kitchen island or dining table. With regards to aesthetics, organic and geometric patterns are both good options.

The Cuyahoga Mill features reclaimed driftwood for a very natural effect that contrasts well with the metal industrial stylings to create an impressive statement for the dining or kitchen space.

The Ludlow showcases a simple geometric play between the circles and squares designed around the light source itself contained within a linear form.


The Zephyr is a playful combination of hand forged metal and the light source that produces a wonderfully organic result that can suit a wide range of decor.

The Solitude is a modern take on the classic crystal chandelier. The hidden light source illuminates the crystal bringing the piece to life in dramatic fashion. Perfect for a dramatic statement to crown your home.
