Add the Spirit of the Islands to your Home with Tropical Style Lighting

This is a lighting style that infuses shade of sun and sea and takes on a coastal and tropical isles perspective

What is Tropical Style Lighting?

This casual style features lots of natural materials, including teak, abaca, seagrass, bamboo, rattan, and other originating from the tropics. Tropical style is all about comfort and ease, and embracing the warm hospitality that goes hand in hand with island living. Big-leaf plants, such as banana plants, bring tropical flair to landscaping, entries, sunrooms and interiors. The colors of the sky and sea, jungle and sand are the main palette choices and should harmoniously work with wood elements.

Tropical Style Inspiration

Tropical lighting style can reflect sophistication, elegance and a peaceful feeling of relaxation so often missing in our busy lifestyle. Tropical style lighting is used in more casual settings, such as beach houses or in tropic-themed rooms. In combination with ceiling fans and summery furniture, it can make a living space feel like a vacation paradise..

Tropical style was inspired in the areas of the Caribbean to the South Pacific. The British Colonial style is based on a combination of exotic materials, Indian and Caribbean influences and traditional forms.. This style originated in the 19th century when the British Empire had posts in many parts of the world, including the tropics. British Colonial style and Caribbean style appear more formal compared to the relaxed style of the South Pacific or Bali, and yet are less formal than the Traditional style.

Topical Style Decorating Tip

Lighting adds unique character to any décor by enhancing other elements used in the room. Whether natural or artificial, lighting is a crucial component when planning the look of your space. In that vain as far as decorating trends go right now there’s nothing hotter than Tropical Lighting and Décor. Influenced by the aroma of orchids, hibiscus and the ocean its comfortable, breezy and warm. A Tropical table lamp can be used as a single accent lamp or in pairs to illuminate a beach inspired room. Or use a tropical table lamp as a conversation piece in an otherwise transitional or traditional interior. The collection of table and floor lamps at Lampsusa.com include a selection of chic designs, ranging in style from coastal to tropical with whimsical animal prints and floral motif.
