I mentioned in a recent post that I have worked in decorative plumbing. I also worked with lighting, which is something I really love. Lighting design is so often done incorrectly or overlooked entirely.

I don’t care to discuss lighting design exactly, just share some of those items that I absolutely fell in love with! Schonbek is one of those lines. I am not crazy about crystal chandeliers generally, but they have managed to use crystal in some new and utterly modern ways, in lamps particularly.

Rock crystal is so cool and gives this piece a unique look. It helps that I love the red lampshade.

This is such a cool twist on modern glamor. I really see this as the perfect touch in a boudoir reading nook.

I just love the shapes on the stem of this lamp along with the crystal base. This one really holds its own and a beautiful focal point. The green and black shade is really dramatic.

I found these on the Horchow.com website, but visit schonbek.com for all of their other great pieces and to find a dealer.
