Decorating with Crystal

Crystal lamps and lighting add sparkle and opulence to any room, making the space feel decadent and rich. Not only does the design look provide an eye-catching touch; the crystal reflects the light into a rainbow of color, cascading onto walls and nearby surfaces.

 

From modern to traditional, any room can be enhanced with a crystal light. Here are five crystal fixtures that will dress up the décor in your home.

The drop crystal pendants on this table lamp add just the right touch of opulence to a living room end table. You could also use a pair on a dining room buffet to make mealtime extra special.

 

The traditional look of a crystal chandelier never goes out of style. This stunning piece will dress up your dining room in an elegant display of light.

 

Crystal can even look at home in a rustic room. This antique-inspired birdcage chandelier is adorned with crystal accents, which add a feminine twist to a farmhouse favorite.

Have Yourself an Eclectic Little Christmas

 

The holiday season is all about peace and harmony, so what better way to display those sentiments (literally) than by highlighting eclectic styles that can really work a room?

Eclectic was a big trend our buyers saw earlier this year at High Point Market. And from what we can tell, it’s a trend that’s going to be around for quite some time. So what exactly qualifies as “eclectic?” Well, pretty much everything! This style hinges on being able to bring styles together in a way that was once considered taboo. For example, take a rustic dining table and hang a crystal chandelier above it (it’ll be ok, Grandma).

The key to making it all work is picking elements that offer similar colors and finishes. Meaning you can take the casual dark brown, leather sofa from Cindy Crawford’s Chastain Collection and pair it with the vibrant lime green color of a contemporary accent chair. Since the chair has a dark brown finish on its arms and legs, it ties in with the color of the sofa. The green color also complements the shades found in the toss pillows.

For a slightly more polished look, grab the Gino sofa from our exclusive Roma Collection and have it sit for a spell next to an accent chair covered in a muted tan, leopard print.

Natural materials like exotic woods and metals paired with smoky grays and elegant neutrals are also a great way to play up the eclectic trend — and don’t forget about pieces that feature raw or distressed wood.

Stop by one of our “homes” to see how we’re decorating our atriums the eclectic way. With a few quirky touches here and there, your home will be simply irresistible — just in time for the holidays!
