Modern Home Style

Zoey Large Pendants in Matte Black with Matte Black Shades

Modern homes are defined by some type of architectural character such as exposed beams and/or a flat or angled roof. The interior of these homes typically feature clean lines and are minimalist in design. Some more industrial-style modern homes utilize an expressive amount of metal and concrete. Color palettes often used in modern homes are neutrals such as black, white, and gray. Warmth can easily be added to the home with either a bold pop of color or metallics like Chromes, Pewters, or Brasses. We recommend homes with modern styles to use light fixtures with two-tone elements, metallic accents, geometric shapes, and unique designs. See the below selection of modern chandeliers and modern pendant lighting, otherwise known as contemporary lighting.

Uptown Home Style

Autumn Twilight 12 Light Chandelier in Black Iron

Uptown style leans more toward décor with feminine elegance and sophistication. Designer elements are often seen within these homes. Uptown home color palettes include warm yellows, pinks, creams and oranges. Classic uptown style elements are similar to traditional homes, however, the former utilizes more decorative elements and softer décor. We recommend light fixtures with crystals and a more feminine silhouette to complement this style.

Traditional Home Style

Torbellino 9 Light Chandelier in Cordoban Bronze

A classic style found in older homes, the traditional home is often a large multi-story home modeled after 18th-19th-century European décor. Traditional homes typically have multiple key interior features, craftsman furnishing, detailed to ornate millwork, and either wallpaper or cooler wall colors such as teal, mint, or blush. This style of home is typically more masculine than Uptown. We recommend traditional light fixtures with a classic silhouette, sweeping arms, and beautiful detailing.

Rustic Home Style

Rustic homes are defined by a strong emphasis of nature. Raw materials are often incorporated and left exposed within the structural design. Exposed wood beams, wood trim, hardwood floors or wood walls are typically found in various rustic homes. Color palettes for these homes include earthy warm reds, browns, greens, and oranges. We recommend rustic light fixtures that utilize organic shapes, or a blend of wood and metal elements. See a selection of rustic chandeliers and rustic pendant lighting below.
