One of the things I noticed was all of the natural materials that have been incorporated into all kinds of designs. For instance I saw a tremendous amount of unstained wood, driftwood, re-used and re-purposed wood, rope, handmade items, canvas, burlap, galvanized finishes, distressed mirrors, but also at the other end of the spectrum bright colors and multiple colors and patterns used on the same piece.
So first I am going to share with you all the new trends in lighting, including hanging lights, sconces and table lights.
First, my personal favorite! It is a classical chandelier but with a fun and unexpected twist of incorporating spoons, forks and knives right along with crystals. It adds a sense of humor to an otherwise elegant chandelier, and I think it is spectacular. It is made by Troy Lighting is is called the Bistro.
Aidan Gray Homes wood carved table lamps.

Driftwood floor lamp available through Currey and Company. This reminds me of a floor lamp in my post, Beach Decor, which you can see here.
This isn't a new trend, but a rather a familiar beauty by Aidan Gray Homes. I found an interesting article about how Aidan Gray Homes began and you can read it here.
This looks like oyster shells to me. This just feels so natural, a base of oyster shells, a linen shade and then driftwood mirrors in the background and also notice the natural wood base that it is all sitting on. Available from Currey and Company.
This is a table lamp made of seashells and it is available from Taylors on Ten which represents multiple brands.
These lights are by Vita Lighting and they are just so very fabulous and fluffy. They are elegant and at the same time light and airy. I wish you could touch them, they are beyond soft....I think they would work in a shabby chic environment and in an ultra modern home.
Here are some light fixtures that I thought were remarkable.
Do you like the vibe of the natural materials invoking a connection with the seaside, boat house or nautical setting? Or do you prefer the traditional lighting but with a twist such as the "silverware chandelier?"
