Best Bets: Interior Designer Favorites
Even professionals have wishlist-worthy designs they love for their homes or use time and again in projects. We rounded up some of our favorite pros’ favorite picks.
We all have one; that favorite design that we keep looking at again and again on websites or in store windows. We dream that one day it will be ours, and imagine where we’d put it in our homes to finally complete our perfect look.
As it turns out, even design professionals have pieces that can make their hearts go pitter-pat. We had the opportunity to chat with a few of our favorite interior designers, who happily shared with us the lighting designs they love; from statement pieces that immediately add drama to a space to their sleek go-to lighting designs that always—and effortlessly—seem to pull together modern interior design schemes.
“The Stix LED Bath Bar is what I consider the perfect bath vanity light. The clean lines go with our modern spaces. The black finish is stunning with black bath fixtures and mirrors. The best part is the light output. It gives such a pure, even light! I also love that it can be used horizontal or vertical. Two vertically placed lights on either side of the mirror gives you the best, most flattering lighting for a bath vanity.”
“It's such a relief to find form and function come in one space-saving package [the IC Floor Lamp]. It's a minimalist sculpture. It's a light source. And, not to nerd out too much but...it's 1250 lumens to boot?!”
“I love the Kelvin LED Task Lamp by FLOS and have used it on several projects. Very versatile desk lamp. Looks great in both modern and more traditional settings. Provides excellent task lighting and is really well made.”
“I love the Link Suspension fixture for its organic shape and folds of wood veneer. While distinctly modern, the wood brings a warmth to every space it inhabits. The fixture seems to glow from within when lit and allows you to appreciate the texture of the wood grain. The color options range from light to medium to dark neutrals and there are some really fun colors offered like red, orange, yellow, turquoise and blue. These finish options let you to use the Link in a soft, subtle scheme or in a bold, statement-making design.”
“This light [the Barbell Pendant] is simple, chic and can go in a modern or a transitional space.”
“When it comes to Interior Design, lighting is absolutely one of my favorite areas to do something special for my clients. The light fixture is always more than a light source; it's a sculpture, an accessory and a mood setter when "on" or "off." This amazing Tom Dixon Melt pendant offers just all of that plus the luxury!!! Incredible. With its coy and minimal design, its presence, in all three finishes—Gold, Silver and Copper—simply attracts attention and speaks volumes.”
