Best luxury lamps: shades and modern beautiful samples

By 22 November 2019news










Choosing the appropriate luxury lamps for illuminating a stylish home is not easy. Such lamps and chandeliers are indeed not just light fixtures but also a key component of the house.

Lampshades play an important role in the choice of lamps. The more valuable the lampshades are, the better the whole object will benefit.


Luxury lamps and chandeliers are the “icing on the cake” in an elegant house thought out down to the last detail. Illuminating the different rooms of a luxury house means finding the right balance between the proper lighting of the area and the beauty of the light fixture.

But don’t worry! On the market you can find numerous ideas for luxury lamps that meet any need.

How do I choose the appropriate luxury lamps for the different areas of the house?

Luxury lamps, just like “normal” light fixtures, are divided into four categories:

  • Suspension lamps

  • Floor lamps

  • Table lamps

  • Wall lamps

When the light fixtures match the different rooms of the house they lend a feeling of well-being and elegance. Therefore our goal is to choose the right luxury lamps for every room of the house.

Here are some ideas to help you choose the right luxury lamps for every room:

  • Suspension lamps: perfect for the living room and the dining room, especially when placed over the dining table.

  • Floor lamps: suitable for illuminating the reading corner in the living room and lending personality to the bedrooms.

  • Table lamps: perfect for the bedroom (the classic bedside lamps) and the studio, but they are also suitable for embellishing the living area.

  • Wall lamps: perfect for illuminating hallways, the kitchen, the bathroom and the bedrooms. But they can be used in halls too as eye-catching ceiling lights.

That said, in order to choose the right type of lamp you must:

  • Choose the type of lighting depending on the area you need to illuminate, so that you narrow down the luxury lamps to choose from.

  • Choose the materials: once you have chosen what type of lighting you need, you can focus on choosing the materials. To be on the safe side, let’s always take inspiration from the style of the room in which you are going to install the lamps. For instance, if you are looking for a suspension lamp for a beautiful classic hall, you can take into consideration modern versions of the classic crystal chandeliers, perhaps custom-made by skilled craftsmen.

There is a very wide choice of high-quality lamps and chandeliers on the market. The important thing is to rely on specialised brands.
