The Allure of Black Lighting Designs and Three Reasons It's Trending

“One is never over- or underdressed in a little black dress.”  - Karl Lagerfeld

The same can be said of contemporary or transitional black pendant chandeliers, ceiling lights, and wall sconces.

These bold and sleek black lighting designs have become a popular trend in interior decorating. They can highlight a room and make it more interesting. Black lighting fixtures can accommodate any style, with black chandelier and black pendant lights a favorite in interior design portfolios for three very good reasons:

1. Black is Sophisticated and Memorable

Black Lighting Fixtures create an atmosphere that has a stunning impact against white or neutral surroundings, as well as in open spaces where a majestic chandelier or large black pendant light captivates an entry way, living room, or bedroom.

Whether it is bold and substantial, or an artfully linear and tranquil design, black lighting fixtures create an intoxicating silhouette that will enchant the senses.

  • Casual and Traditional Style black lighting designs deliver a unifying effect with other lighting used in adjacent spaces
  • Rustic iron designs of Industrial Style or Modern Farmhouse lighting combines with wood and other natural elements to instill a comfortable, unpretentious atmosphere
  • The retro-trend of Renaissance-reproduction European Style black lighting designs is majestic and awe-inspiring
  • Modern Style lighting dressed in crystal evokes a sensuous, composed environment

By mixing tones and textures, in addition to converging a varying style of lighting fixture with the dominant style of your room, you can create a distinctive, visual appeal with designer-level results.

2. Black Has a Slimming Effect 

A black lighting fixture will not only complement a contemporary or transitional space, it can elongate the look of floor-to-ceiling space which makes it a good choice for small spaces like apartments or rooms with low ceilings.

By choosing an open-frame, linear design, you can create the illusion of more space in a smaller room. Notwithstanding, a larger, more substantial black lighting fixture is ideal when you have room to spare and want to make a statement.

 NOTE: Before selecting a black lighting fixture, consider the size of the room and if the fixture will illuminate an open area or be situated above a table or seating area. Scale the size of the fixture to the size of the space so that it is proportionate to the room, and does not interfere with furniture or traffic.

WHEN SHOPPING: Our Main Category Page(s) let you begin your search by the Type or Style of lighting fixture you desire. Likewise, the Type and Style page(s) on allow you to narrow your search by what is most meaningful to you, such as: Globe or Wood construction, Room, Color/Finish, Number of Bulbs, Current Promotions, and even a Top Ten List.

3. Black is Flattering No Matter How You—or Your Room—Wear It

Minimal and modern, or casual with open and airy design features, black lighting fixtures will definitely make a space more interesting, with different styles available to complete the look you’re after.

If you desire a more subdued feel in your room, a matte finish is the best option, as it will not compete with other room elements.

Getting it Right the First Time

Black lighting designs will be the most prominent accessory in your room, so they will deliver a 'win' or a 'fail'. That is why splurging on high-quality, contractor-grade lighting designs from reputable manufacturers is essential to getting the full effect of the space you've envisioned.


Our Lighting Styles have distilled the principal design features into nine categories, so it’s easy to find the lighting fixture that will complement your the essence of your home.sea-gull-lighting-perryton-4-light-hall-foyer-pendant-blacksmith

If you're not sure if a particular black lighting fixture will work in your space—whether by design or by size—our design team is a phone call (or email) away, and can give you help you decide based on your specific requirements.
