A room is a conversation. The different elements placed in a room talk to one another. Like a host with a genius for getting the right invitation list together for a party, when you select what will make up a given space, you're selecting elements that have enough in common but are also sufficiently different that the conversation will sizzle and sparkle.
Setting up the conversation between art and lighting is one of the most important choices you may face from a decorative standpoint. By selecting artistic fixtures that tie into a nearby painting and its frame or sculpture in some way, you create a natural conversation that is always going on.
Art is an essential part of any interior space. When it comes to interior décor, art is not just something you hang on your walls. Art is an approach; it’s a sensibility you bring to the space. Each room is a composition where aesthetics guide decisions, questions of proportion and emphasis carefully considered.
Décor trends may nudge some of these decisions one way or the other, while abiding principles of artistic interior design dictate the larger picture. Trends are temporary while art is timeless. Yet the two often intersect. Current and emerging décor trends value layers, textures, the organic, and the handmade.
In this context, the right sort of lighting fixture may assume an aura of art. Depending on where it falls in the composition of a space, a Corbett fixture functions as a piece of art that happens to light things.
