The Art of Lighting

By Patrisha Z | Aug 20 2012

We love the way lighting can change the whole atmosphere of the room: An angular lamp shade elevates the décor drama, a metallic pendant dresses up a casual dining room and a vintage-inspired wall sconce adds a layer of retro elegance. In celebration of our artfully curated modern lighting collection, we rounded up a few of our favorite ways to layer with lighting...
