Create timeless spaces with Traditional lighting
The look is always evolving, but it's the same style that's been popular for centuries. Traditional lighting fixtures in the home lend timeless elegance. Add classic appeal anywhere with traditional lamps and decor accents.
Traditional may be the easiest style to spot. It's a ubiquitous look with which we're all familiar. The style has European roots, and the classic American interpretation draws heavily from English Country. Furniture is heavy and detailed, colors are saturated, textiles incorporate intricate patterns, and windows are dressed with heavy drapery.
Traditional lighting fixtures continue this theme, incorporating rich finishes, intricate designs, and exquisite decoration. Large crystal chandeliers steal the show and can single-handedly create a dramatic dining room or sitting area. Complement this overhead light with decorative sconces that glitter with gilded finishes or even crystal dangles.
Classic pendant lighting will often incorporate rich glasswork, like marbleized amber or hammered style glass. These hanging treasures add to the richness of kitchens and other areas.
Finally, complete a bedding ensemble or seating area by framing the bed or couch with a pair of exquisite table lamps. The beautiful glasswork of Tiffany style lamps is a great fit, as are glamorous crystal lamps. Fine floor lamps and designer desk lamps can also be the final traditional touch to finish a room.

Updated classic: The New Traditional
Even the most steadfast of styles continue to evolve. The way we live has changed over centuries, and so has the way we interact with our homes. Out of this evolution, and in response to changing tastes, comes the "New Traditional."
Furniture is still formal, but the forms are slightly sleeker. Updated takes on timeless looks like the Louis XV chair and the wing chair provide classic sophistication with smoothed-out lines. New materials also bring old design into the new world. For example, European lines executed in clear acrylic make for stunning designs.
Installing energy efficient bulbs in traditional fixtures is the surest way to bring old designs into the modern age. And, clean, simple drum shades can completely refresh stuffy table lamp bases.
At the heart of the New Traditional is the freedom to mix lighting and decor from different periods. Something old plus something new is a powerful combination for today's designer.
