Brighten Up Any Room with Natural Fiber Lighting
Most lighting fixtures are made out of materials like metal, glass or crystal, but these are certainly not your only options. Natural fibers like rattan and seagrass, which are common in other elements of home design, can also be used to craft beautiful light fixtures for every room in the home. The Pottery Barn collection of natural fiber lighting includes pendant lights, chandeliers, flush mounts and lamps that will fit right in with a variety of styles.
Common Natural Fiber Lighting Materials
A part of what makes natural fiber fixtures so unique is that they can be crafted out of a number of different materials. Here is a look at some of the more common materials that have been used to make the pieces in our collection.
Rattan is one of the more common natural fibers you will find used in lighting fixtures due to its strength and ability to soften and diffuse the light filtering through it. It has a naturally rustic appeal but it can also be woven into modern designs that will look right at home with other modern furniture and decor. A rattan lighting fixture will add a warm touch to any room and makes a particularly great pairing to a wooden bed in the bedroom.
A lighting fixture crafted with coconut shell fibers will have a very natural and textured look that lends an instant touch of charm and character to a dining room, living area or entryway. Due to natural variations in the sizes, textures and colors of the coconut fibers, no two pieces will be exactly alike.
Featuring draped and overlapping layers of smooth wooden beads, a wood bead chandelier has a soft elegance that will elevate the style of any space. Let it shine, both literally and decoratively, by hanging it in the living room or above your dining table. A wood bead sconce is also a lovely piece of accent lighting for a kitchen, bedroom or reading nook.
Seagrass is a wonderful material for coastal- and cottage-inspired rooms. It has a soft look and feel that helps create a casual and comfortable atmosphere. The warm and neutral hues of natural seagrass will go with a variety of color palettes and decor styles. An understated seagrass pendant can make any space more welcoming.
Raffia is a durable fiber made from a type of palm leaf. Much like seagrass, raffia also has a soft texture and features subtle color variations throughout each strand. A woven raffia pendant will inspire a beachy, summery feel that makes a perfect complement to coastal decor. It is a good choice for the entryway, bedroom or bathroom.
If you're looking for a new light fixture for your home, then consider something a little different by choosing natural fiber lighting from Pottery Barn. These versatile fixtures make a great addition to both bedrooms and living areas, lending the space a relaxed modern style that will encourage you to sit back and unwind.
