With the vast range of lighting fixtures and lamps available from the Dar lighting range, it is difficult to choose which would be ideal for certain rooms inside the home. The concept behind choosing the best lighting for receptions and hallways lies in making these areas both welcoming, and decently lit, regardless of their relevant styles. This article aims to clearly cover some of the products, matching them where their styles are complementary. While only covering some, there is a range of styles commonly found in homes, and the aim to find suitable lighting for them.
This aims to cover a range of example lighting products that will be conducive to a vintage atmosphere of an old home. Starting with ceiling pendants, the Kristen hanging lamps makes for a basic introduction, with its fringed lampshade; it covers a range of eras by itself. More elaborate, the Moorgate Hexagonal pendants are examples of a throwback to candlelit lamps. The Victoria pendant is also very appropriate here, especially in a reception.
For wall fixtures, the Oboe style is downplayed and subtle, making for a decent fixture for hallways, and around receptions. A Onedin style is better suited to where one would place a bureau.
Art Deco and Modernism
Here, this aims for the less vintage look, and move toward styles encompassing the majority of 20th century design and architecture, and many homes will have one of these styles. Reception and hallways will have a range of different styles and colors, giving a wealth of choice in choosing lighting fixtures.
First, the Arc design of hanging lamp will accompany either an Art Deco style reception, or a 60's style, formed of a simple dome for the lampshade. The Bluebell lampshades for hanging pendants will suit any era, being a light design, ideal for white or pale surroundings. The explorer is an outlandish design, and possibly suitable for the bubble-like designs of the 60's. The Kristen makes an appearance here, its versatile appearance is conducive to any home with decoration spanning the 50's to the 80's.
For wall fixtures, the Hertz is a modern design, but is still conducive to an 80's or 90's style reception area, and hallway, while the Marino is more specific for an 80's design, with its clean and tidy appearance.
For the most recent designs and architecture, designs are less outlandish, but aimed at a futuristic style. White and chrome colors are heavy featured, but so are diffusive glows. Gentle, white light is the aim for this. Only a few examples will be listed here.
For pendants, the Hemisphere model is a very good start idea, or perhaps for an extravagant home, a reception containing one of the Lopez models. The Redruth is also a very good example of a more organic side to this age.
Fixtures will consist of examples like the Axton, and Hellas for hallways, while the Horizon and Klein are ideal for both.
