Gone are the days when the only statement lighting was over the dining table. Today, you can add a designer touch to any room in your home with a well-chosen light fixture.

We asked two designers, Jo Alcorn and Michelle Cook, to create design boards inspired but some of our favorite statement-making fixtures. The designers had the option to choose the room they wanted to design.

Designer Jo Alcorn was given the Eglo Canada 1L Suspension Fixture from Living Lighting and she imagined it as a statement piece in a foyer with plenty of texture and nature inspired touches. (See Michelle Cook’s Den/Office Design Board Here.)

THE FIXTURE: Eglo Canada 1L Suspension Fixture

THE DESIGN BOARD: Nature-Infused Front Hallway



Your front hallway is the first impression guests will have of your home so you want to make a statement with it. I started with an industrial looking cement wallpaper. I love the way it creates instant drama. Your guest always need a place to sit so I choose a bench that looks like an art piece when it isn’t being use. Don’t forget about your lighting, the jewellery within the space is something you don’t want to overlook.  Adding a fiddle fig plant, a texture runner and a storage bin softens this industry look and creates a fun, welcoming space for everyone to enjoy!
