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.
