Lighting is a highly innovative design field and with each new year, lighting companies release new collections and new styles that excite the imagination and inspire amazing spaces. We asked the experts at Living Lighting to show us some of the new pieces hitting the market for 2018. Here are 8 styles we’re very excited about!

Solitude LED large pendant by Synchronicity. A floating island of angular crystal towers provides the visual aesthetics for this distinctive pendant. Each crystal rises from an LED light guide and pierces through to emerge below, reflecting and refracting light in a vibrant sparkle.

WHY WE LOVE IT: A very modern twist on the traditional crystal chandelier, this fixture is the perfect mix of modern aesthetic and traditional glam. 

Otto Sphere 5 Light Pendant by Hubbardton Forge. A blend of polished brass and black finishes and five glass spheres creates the focus for any room. The spheres can be hung on the same plane, at varying heights. They can also each be hung with the lighting element at a horizontal or on an angle.

WHY WE LOVE IT: While the style is fantastic, what we really love about this piece is the flexibility to hang each pendant at varying heights and angles allowing you to create a one-of-a-kind display.

Odeon pendant by Hinkley. Inspired by the stylish Tribeca brasserie, Odeon elicits a fashionable, urban feel that is both modern and timeless. The metal frame follows the contour of the holophane sphere, inspiring perfection in any setting.

WHY WE LOVE IT: We love the use of a traditional material like holophane in a modern shape with clean, crisp lines for a classic, timeless style.

Anemone circular LED pendant by Vermont Modern. A circular LED light guide is suspended from four cables and feeds light to the Anemone’s bristles. The bristles spread light to your room as dim or bright as you’d like. Feel the love.

WHY WE LOVE IT: We love seeing modern designs that take inspiration from nature. Whether this design reminds you of the tentacles of a sea anemone or the multiple stamen of an anemone flower, the finished look is just stunning!

Monarch pendant by Vermont Modern. Three pendants suspended from a single canopy form this work of lighting art. Each pendant is created from two sheets of steel, laser cut, shaped and welded to create a “there, not there” visual aesthetic.

WHY WE LOVE IT: We love this modern design inspired by butterflies in flight! Elegant, laser cut pendants create a bit of an abstract feel that we absolutely adore.
