Why You Should Embrace The Organic Lighting Trend

The surge of organic lighting in the design industry reflects a growing inspiration from natural elements like plants, trees, and the ocean. Located in Florida, where vast open waters and lush greenery are all around, we’ve seen a noticeable desire among many to create that same texture and depth within their homes. What better source of inspiration than the wonders of nature?

While we can quickly tell if something aligns with our style or taste, bringing these ideas together to create an aesthetically pleasing space can be challenging. For those looking for help crafting a warm and cozy environment, we recommend using materials like alabaster, marble, rattan, wood, rope, ceramic, or travertine in lighting design.

While these materials might sound traditional, incorporating unique shapes, as seen in the showcased fixture above, and adopting a minimalist approach can transform them into a highly versatile and even modern aesthetic. Wood, for example, can be used to convey an organic design, adding a comforting warm vibe to the room. The fixture, resembling puddled water suspended in the air, not only adds movement and depth to the space but also offers a cozy ambiance in a single piece.

Alabaster has also emerged as a prominent trend, creating a spotlight on ambient lighting. This translucent stone, renowned for its natural veining and unique color variations, ensures that each piece stands out as a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Thanks to the integration of LED lighting, concerns about heat from incandescent and halogen bulbs causing hot spots and discoloration are now a thing of the past. The illumination now flows through in a continuous, solid run, offering a soft, mood-enhancing glow. See how Alabaster can be used in a wall sconce or chandelier above. 

Rope Pendant- Palecek

Feeling creative or inspired, yet? This next material might catch you off guard – rope. Showcased above, this unique piece features hand-woven lampakanay rope in a whitewash finish, wrapped over a powder-coated metal frame. Lampakanay, a cattail-like seagrass, grows wild in swamps and marshes throughout the Philippines. When dried, the natural brown color can be lightened to shades of tan and sand white. The rope encircles and weaves through the frame, creating intricate patterns of texture and design.
