Birdcages and Vintage-Industrial. These are two lighting trends that we are seeing a lot in popular décor right now! Birdcages, like this Weston Round Pendant from Restoration Hardware, are a classic-looking style with lots of metal turning and exposed bulbs. They can easily be incorporated into many styles of decor, from traditional, to transitional, to relaxed casual.
Restoration Hardware is also one of the top brands for vintage-inspired industrial lighting, another very popular style. Sometimes modeled after actual early-1900’s fixtures, these can be made of hammered metal, frosted glass, or rustic wood, and often include warehouse elements such as knobs, cages, and Edison bulbs. While the vintage style is reminiscent hard-working environments, these fixtures fit easily into casual décor, such as our recent “Modern Farmhouse” project
Picking out the prettiest lighting seems like the hard part, but one more decisions remains… With incandescent bulbs being phased out, how do you choose the best bulb alternative?
