Searching for the perfect ceiling light to complement your modern interior but don’t know where to begin? Look no further. We’re breaking out the two basic elements of modern design to help you figure what it is you’re looking for, and where to find it. 



The elements of modern design use basic geometric shapes, lines and curves with materials such as metal & glass. Chrome and satin nickel finishes are ideal for modern spaces. When it comes to modern design, less is more – so go for simplicity over complexity.

Think about if you prefer symmetrical or asymmetrical design. Symmetrical pieces create balance, while asymmetrical offers more visual variety. However, the two aren’t mutually exclusive – you can mix structures in lighting, furniture & patterns within your space.
