Industrial

If you're into the rough-around-the-edges look of industrial design, you'll swoon over this 5-light chandelier. Featuring exposed Edison bulbs, hexagon-wire shade, and wood and metal accents, this fixture is the perfect focal point for your industrial-inspired room. Whether you're pairing it with concrete, exposed brick, or vaulted ceilings, it's sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Our next fixture looks like it could be hanging over a vintage drug store bar. Grab your favorite flavor of malt, sit back, and enjoy this playful yet classy frosted-glass fixture. It will bring a touch of nostalgia to your custom home.

Clear Pendant

Why cover up a light bulb when it looks as cool as this? Clear pendants can complement almost any design, whether elegant or casual. Choose a textured glass to add detail to your fixture. The effect is a custom-feeling focal point.

Geometric

The use of lines in this fixture helps move the eye throughout the room. Its mix of metal finishes gives it a versatile appearance that’s on trend for this year's design.

Sculptural

Why reserve art for the walls when you can hang it from your ceiling? The off-kilter design of this fixture is a funky take on the classic chandelier. It's ultra-modern and definitely pushes the design envelope, but you didn't choose to build a custom home to fit in, did you?

Exposed Wire

With the rise of minimalism, unfinished elements have taken the scene. This fixture with exposed wiring would pair well with natural wood or Scandinavian design. One thing is for sure, though: your friends are going to be awestruck by its unique appearance.

Modern

If you're a fan of the asymmetrical, you'll love this modern pendant light. With only a flurry of metal ribbon around the exposed bulb, it's both daring and delicate. Try it out in your kitchen, formal dining area, or entertainment room.
