Lighting Trends: All About Orbs

Posted on Mar 18, 2016 by Steve

Orbs are equal parts decorative and functional, and we saw them everywhere at this year's Lightovation light show in Dallas, so the trend is here to stay.

This is no surprise to us, of course. Thanks to their globe-like shape and abundant finishes, materials, and styling options, orbs can work beautifully in a variety of settings, including foyers, kitchens, and dining rooms. Not to mention they cast plenty of light up and down.

Check out some of our top picks in orb light fixtures below:  

  1. Luna from Crystorama. On display in our Waltham showroom, this eight light orb chandelier from Crystorama boasts English Bronze on the outside and Antique Gold on the inside, a combo that's sure to wow any space.

  1. Oberlin from Murray Feiss. This two-light pendant adorned with graduated Clear Rondure beads is part of the Oberlin Collection from Murray Feiss. Two LED modules shine light down and up to illuminate the spectacular crystal beads, and the "warm-dimming" feature means that this orb will imitate the warming glow of incandescent as it dims (i.e. as incandescent lights dim, they glow more amber). This gorgeous light is coming soon to both showrooms.

  1. Unison Orb from Quoizel. On display in Waltham and Allston, this four-light orb chandelier from Quoizel is the epitome of symmetry and balance. The Imperial Bronze finish provides an added dose of panache.

  1. Six-Light Orb from Hubbardton Forge. Currently on display in both showrooms in a Dark Smoke finish, this orb will soon be available in Hubbardton's new Gloss White finish, which was all the talk at Lightovation.
