Lighting is such an invention that apart from its functional purpose has a huge decorative value too. Some fixtures are able to completely change the look of the space. Especially it refers to big ceiling lights and chandeliers, which I personally adore. One of the latest design trends is that chandeliers are not necessarily put in the middle of the room as it used to be, but rather above the place which you want to highlight and draw attention to – whether it is a quirky sofa, beautiful armchair or dining table. Lets have a look at some 2014 lighting tendencies from sculptural minimalism influences, perfect for modern lofts and apartments, or traditional and eclectic spaces to the the wall-sculpted illuminators, Moroccan style pendant lamps that are an enlightening feature to any modern living room, instantly bringing a warm and exotic feel to the house. 2014 expected to be dominated by circular frag-mental fixtures and golden plated surfaces that will remain one of the most trendy finishings this year.

The Skyscraper floor lamp by Boca do Lobo

The Skyscraper floor lamp from Boca Do Lobo is a cool combination of opposing styles in hot hues that illuminate your home with their chic, unique aesthetic. This collection of floor lamps has an unmistakable retro throw-back quality with its fringed fabric shade, which is set atop a carved mahogany base boasting classically elaborate details. Not only does the style transition as you move from top to bottom, so too does the finish, evolving from bright white bottom to vibrantly colored top. Even in the dark, this cool lamp design is a bright spot in any room. But when lit, you simply can’t take your eyes off this unusual, one-of-a-kind piece. The Skyscraper floor lamp carved in mahogany, with a turned structure in wood. Finishing lacquered in white with a degradé in customized colours.
