Lighting Inspired by Nature

I am seeing a growing trend; more and more lighting designers are being inspired by nature. This is not new, but the way in which designs are being interpreted is. The modern sensibility is superb and has been showing up at the Architectural Digest Home Show in the Spring, Highpoint Market this past Fall, in my favorite showrooms and through local artisans.

My team and I are so inspired by the breathtaking and innovative creations by Serip. The large scale pendants would be a welcome sight in both corporate and large scale residential interiors. The attention to line, shape and form, the sheer liquidity and elegance of these fixtures is sublime!

I am also a big fan of Ochre’s seed cloud installation, which can be a vast affair or a quiet interpretation with just a few pendants. With a dark backdrop as seen in the showroom – these works of art shine bright!

Also from Ochre – the eucalyptus linear chandelier is whimsical and grand all at once. I love the warm gold tones, the curvilinear leaves juxtaposed by the rectilinearity of the pendant.

One of my favorite vendors, Hubbarton Forge, has an Aerial pendant that reminds me of delicate calliliies.

I had the privilege of meeting the designer at Highpoint for a private sneak peek at their new collection. It was astounding the listen to this creative savant walk thru his presentation with enigmatic notes, we were all fascinated by his design process and the meticulous detail taken in crafting these creations.
