Nature is one of the most popular themes in contemporary design, and lighting fixtures are no exception. The beautiful lines and inspiring contrasts found in nature can be (and have been) captured skillfully in many modern lighting pieces. Here are just a few we’ve found:
Lighting is a powerful factor in any space. This exquisite pendant, for example, is not only beautiful in its own right, but it also has the power to transform a simple bedroom into an enchanted forest grove.
This minimalist table lamp was inspired by a sprig in nature. Created by designer Peter Yong Fa, the lamp is the unique specimen it is because of a simple teak wood support stick.
Were you inspired the last time you looked at a bird’s nest? Serena & Lily designers certainly were…and came up with this stunning modern woven hanging lamp, hand-woven from organic materials.
Gorgeous pendants designed by Jeremy Cole are inspired by the aloe plant. With “leaves” made out of bone china, the nuances of light emanating from within are breathtaking.
This fantastic hanging lamp, designed by Ligneous Lighting, was inspired by trees that had been chewed, and damaged, by beavers. Who’d have thought a damaged scene in nature would lead to something to beautiful? The lamp is made from recycled wood, bark, and glass juice bottles.
There’s something about a smooth river stone that exudes peace and tranquility. This gorgeous river stone lamp, designed and hand-crafted by Putu Designer in Bali, is no exception.
These Volskar lamps make you feel like you’re almost out in nature, don’t they? Quite a soothing design idea.
This striking table lamp was made with driftwood by Bleu Nature, French eco-designer. We’re pretty sure the lighting here does Mother Nature proud.
Another take on how driftwood can make a table lamp – this time, the lines are horizontally wave-like, which is a lovely representation of how driftwood comes to be.
Would you dare to reinvent nature into your lighting fixtures? Could you see yourself embracing a large tree branch as the foundation for your next hanging pendant trio? (If so, please consider a grass-green area rug to finalize the natural embrace. Perfection.)
