There’s no denying that lighting is an essential addition to the home. After all, there aren’t many home accessories that make it into every single room without fail. But what most people seem to forget about lighting is that far from simply being a functional necessity, it can double as a decorative accent, or even an art piece. Ahead, here are six lighting designs that attest to this – all with a pretty in pastel twist!

Wink Lamp

Chic metallic detailing topped off with fun pastel fringing? The Wink Lamp is eclectic perfection.

Whether clustered in a pair or featured as a singular accent, the Wink Lamp is sure to turn heads. Designed in collaboration between Masquespacio and Houtique, this would look beautiful set in an Art Deco aesthetic to really amp up all the glamour vibes.

Kazimir Sconce

Inspired by the late 1800 Russian artist, Kazimir Malevich, this sconce by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio is a celebration of geometry, texture and color.

While individually each pane is unexceptional, once collectively composed they create fascinating effects that vary from each angle and lighting condition. There’s a wonderfully minimalist aspect to this piece, yet its color and texture lends the Kazimir Sconce a playful touch. Overall, this piece is an understated mix of classic cool.

Polypop Pendant

Art Deco glassware meets early Modernist lighting in TOKENLIGHTS’ re-imagining of the simple polyhedron form.

The Polypop pendant comes in a variety of opal and transparent hues – the ruby and lagoon are particular favorites for a shot of punchy color. I’m also a huge fan of their artisan quality. Each pendant is designed, developed, hand-blown and finished in Brooklyn, New York.

Corner Pendant Lamp

FILD’s design philosophy is built on the principles of clean minimalist lines and shapes. It’s no wonder then that their Corner Pendant Lamp embodies sleek contemporary chic to a tee.

I especially love how the matte pastels contrast with the clear glass of the bulb to create a striking juxtaposition which immediately draws the eye. Group a few of these in different colors together at differing heights to create a focal point in your space.


Little Darling Lamp

Designed by Swedish Ninja’s Maria Gustavsson, the Little Darling Lamp boasts one of the most darling inspiration stories of this whole round up.

It takes its cue from the striking height difference between the designer and her husband – she being short and he being tall. How cute is that? Design-wise, I especially love the mix of textures in this piece, from the shiny smooth marble to the textile overlay cable. This small detail does so much to transform the humble lamp into a decorative art piece.

Serpentine Heart Song Lamp

Terrazzo is always a winner isn’t it? But that’s not the only reason I love Carly Jo Morgan’s Serpentine Heart Song Lamp.

Notice the serpent detail that gives this piece a contemporary abstract edge? The design was inspired by the status of snakes as Guardians of the Underworld within mythology, and their representation of infinite rebirth as they shed their skins and transmute poison. Ultimately for me, this piece stands out for its ability to prettify a decidedly unpretty muse.
