If you want to achieve modern bedrooms look, choosing light fixtures in this design style is a great way to start. When seeking the perfect lights for your space, it helps to keep the definition of “modern” in mind.
But first, let´s clarify something here, ‘Modern’ and ‘contemporary’ terms don’t have the same meaning. Modern design appeared in the late 1800s and it has Asian and Scandinavian design references. Modern items are based on straight lines and geometric forms and are usually neutral in color, electing simplicity, and function.
Let´s take a look to some amazing examples:
The contemporary decorating style emerged later—in the 1970s—and continues to evolve based on current trends. It pulls on a mix of Art Deco, deconstructivism, futurism and other styles.
So, if you are searching for a modern look, you now know that you have to choose lamps with simple, straight lines, choosing function over form. Go for subtle colors and neutral tones. For a soft or romantic look, incorporate frosted glass shades.
Wall lamps with swing arms can serve as substitutes for nightstand tables, freeing up room on the table for books, an alarm clock, and other items. A wall fixture installed closer to the ceiling can provide ambient light. Floor lamps are simple in design and can provide task or accent lighting anywhere your bedroom needs it.
This is a great example of contemporary lighting piece. VELLUM is the elegance of nature transformed by the man’s hand. It comes from the ancient manuscripts, where messages were written in VELLUM, a fine and translucent material. VELLUM wall lamp brings to the spaces the warm light of written stories passed through generations and is a great way to give to space a modern yet super elegant vibe.
Hard to look for a focal point? You may choose to hang a modern chandelier over your bed. The size of your fixture will depend on the size of your room and bed and height of your ceiling.
For the look of a chandelier but on a smaller scale, you can hang three or more matching or coordinate pendant lights over your bed. For added interest, choose pendants that are similar in style but have globes in different shapes and shades, and hang them in varying heights. Just be sure to provide enough clearance for getting in and out of your bed. The Coltrane Suspension Light is a brilliant way to pull off this look and gives a spectacular look to any room.
