The term signature piece refers to a light fixture that creates a centrepiece, is bold and unique and makes a statement about the house, occupants and their individual tastes and personalities. A signature piece will normally be in the form of a ceiling light, wall light, light bulbs, or a lampshade.
Make a great first impression with a beautiful signature piece in the hallway. Choose a fitting that stands out yet complements your décor or select wall lights. Enhance your kitchens atmosphere and create a talking point using signature kitchen lights, think either a large signature piece to fill the space or a set of pendants. Consider which bulbs will work best in the space too.
The right lighting in your living room will create a space to unwind in after a long day. Chandeliers are popular, as are Scandinavian style fittings, however the most important aspect is to get the colour of the light right, think softer warm whites and dimmers, or even smart lighting control for the ultimate relaxation.
Signature ceiling pieces can be fixed near to the ceiling or may be suspended using a wire, cord or chain. They may consist of one or multiple pendants, or a chandelier type fitting. Today we see a lot of signature pieces being used over communal areas, such as dining tables or kitchen islands, they are also often used as a centrepiece, fixed in the middle of a room. The factor that sets them apart from a usual light fitting is that they will be the piece that catches the eye as a person enters the room.
Signature wall lights can be used for general lighting or they can be directed towards room features, highlighting these areas and drawing the eye towards the areas that a person wants to exhibit. They come in many different varieties and can really demonstrate the house owners’ personalities; the theme may also be continued with bold external wall lights.
Light bulbs can also provide a signature piece, creating ambience and a unique vibe to a room. Antique light bulbs are one option and have become a popular feature in trendy bars and restaurants for some time now. Or quite simply changing lampshades can create a whole new feel within a room, consider oversized or laser cut for a signature piece that gives the room a little something special.
