Each year the Dallas International Lighting Market is held in January and June, welcoming over 3,000 buyers and many state-of-the-art manufacturers. One of the most contemporary events of the year, this market offers buyers the chance to learn about new lighting technology and design advances. Known around the world, the Dallas Lighting Market is truly the place for interior designers and buyers to see the latest developments in lighting and new product releases. With lights to fit any and every style, the showrooms highlight industrial-inspired, rustic, modern, traditional, and eclectic lighting options. Valley Light Gallery proudly welcomes the following lighting pieces into their showroom:
Clean and Modern
A reflective surface adds a modern touch to this chandelier. Futuristic looking, this light hangs from the ceiling and has six lights attached at the ends. The curves of the arms and the main base of the piece give it an organic feel. A piece such as this would work well in a sitting room or formal living room alongside other metal accents.
Rustic and Dramatic
This chandelier begs to be the center of attention with its historic grandeur. Distressed wood makes this piece homey and electric candlelight gives off a warm glow. The base resembles a rustic wheel and it appears as if it came from pieces found in an old barn. If your home is styled with an eclectic bend, this light fixture would look beautiful in a master bedroom over a matching wood headboard. Place the lights on a dimmer for a truly romantic ambiance.
Sconces are taking on a whole new look. Check out this new light fixture from the Dallas Lighting Market. Vertically hung, this light is a sculpture with a purpose. Dark metal and rectangular shapes make for a light that looks as if it belongs in the Museum of Modern Art as well as your entryway. Instead of just hanging one, try two for a bold and impressive statement.
Discard your preconceived notions of a lantern and give this new light a look. Pewter in color, this home accent will enlighten the exterior of your home in classic Paul Revere style. Clear seeded glass gives this lantern a worn and rustic feel. The sharp lines lend its self to industrial contemporary settings. It’s a beautiful updated version the outdoor lantern that transcends time.
Vintage “industrial” looks are one of the trends in 2014 lighting. Mixing machinery-like fixtures and a simple aesthetic can give your room a unique character. Hardware gives this pendant an industrial look and a rounded light makes for a strong design statement. A piece such as this would work great in a darkly hued kitchen or in a master bathroom that is inspired by industrial lighting. Styled with rustic wood and exposed beams would really help this light to stand out.
The caged mini chandelier is a modern interpretation of a more rustic period. With a worn metal cage surrounding a delicate three light chandelier, this piece draws the viewer in. Captivating and strong, this light reminds one of old castles and medieval chambers. If you are looking for a medieval gothic look, this hanging light is a must-have accent.
In Living Color
Color is edging its way into the current style and this blue glass pendant is the perfect way to add some vibrant lighting into a space without going overboard. With silver accents to complement its hue, this light is made of glass which allows the Edison bulbs to shine for an ultra-modern tech look. Pick up the color by adding other accents that are blue in the space. A blue vase or blue couch pillow would tie in nicely.
This light from the Dallas Lighting Market grabs your attention with its circular shape and interesting textures. A large, aluminum outer ring is hand-machined to receive hundreds of strands of stainless steel cable which are hand-strung to create an intricate, interwoven pattern. Powerful LEDs entrenched within the circular structure shin inward toward the cables to create visually interesting general illumination. It can be hung at almost any angle by the three independent suspension cables. This saucer-like chandelier is just what you need in your modern dining space. Hung low over the table, this light will set the tone for sophisticated style.
Nostalgia and Modernity
Like the famed and historic merchant quarter located in the heart of modern day Manhattan, the Uptown Seaport Collection combines nostalgia and modernity with its vintage bulbs, innovative optic glass in a western bronze finish. This wall fixture is far from boring designed to appear as if a rounded light is hanging from a rope suspended from the wall. Gold accents and its unique shape help this light to add interest to any room in the home.
Cutting Edge Contemporary
Industrialized lighting is perfect for barn-inspired homes and open floor planned lofts. A highly textured combination of latticework hardware finished in gilded bronze, this mini pendant makes use of eye-catching exposed nostalgia bulbs. This pendant is an excellent choice for contemporary rustic or industrial inspired spaces.
