Top Ten Fixtures of 2016

By November 29, 2016 Uncategorized

The year 2016 is not over yet, but here are the top ten fixtures that have sold in our showroom over the last year:

Dining Room

1. Minka Parsons Studio 5-light chandelier in smoked iron1
This fixture has a lot going for it. First off, its transitional style makes it a chameleon, letting it fit into almost any décor. The white glass shades diffuse the bulb creating a nice soft glow. Its excellent price point is just a bonus.

 

 

2. Kichler Brinley 8-light pendant in brushed nickel2
The farmhouse look is huge this year, and what goes better in a farmhouse than mason jars. The bronze version of this fixture is just as popular and the matching single pendants are perfect for over a small island.

 

 


Ceiling Fans

3. Kendal 3-blade fan in architectural bronze3
There was a real shift in style in ceiling fans this year. In the past they were all about function, but we are seeing more and more manufacturers create fans that are not only functional but are also beautiful. The 3-bladed design was definitely the most popular in 2016.

 

 


Foyer Lights

4. Artcraft Menlo Park 6-light chandelier in chocolate4
New LED technology emerged this year with the LED Edison filament bulb. This fixture is the perfect one to feature those beautiful bulbs. Not all homes have a grand entrance, so this lower profile chandelier was a popular choice.

 

 


Wall Sconces

5. Nuvo Beaker 1-light wall sconce in brushed nickel5
This beautiful wall sconce starts out at a great price point. This cylindrical glass highlights the vintage filament bulb which is included. This is a favourite of Jillian Harris and her team as well, as they have used it a few times in renovations for the TV show Love It or List It Vancouver.

 

 


Bathroom Vanities

6. Galaxy Triton 5-light vanity in chrome6
This bath bar measures in at a whopping 47” in length, making it ideal for a long bathroom counter. The timeless style of this fixtures ensures that your bathroom won’t look dated in a few years.

 

 

7. Kichler Braelyn 3-light vanity in olde bronze7
There’s so much to love about the reclaimed style of the fixture from Kichler. The vintage industrial design is punctuated with clear seedy glass shades, reminiscent of the glass jars that were a staple of the 19th century American life. The olde bronze finish and carbon filament replica light bulbs enhance this style.

 

 


Island lights

8. Feiss Baskin 1-light pendant in polished nickel8
Bright, white kitchens are all over the magazines and blog posts this year. These classic glass pendants are a little on the larger size, making a dramatic impact without sacrificing any sight lines.

 


Outdoor Lighting

9. Craftmade Union outdoor sconce in oiled bronze9
The farmhouse look has been very popular this year, and these exterior sconces fit the aesthetic perfectly. The oiled bronze finish has a gleam of gold which has also been a very popular finish over the last twelve months. Although this is an exterior fixture, it has also been used in powder rooms and kitchens.

 

 


Overall Look

10. Any and all orb fixtures10
You may have noticed that this list was missing the ever popular orb fixture. These fixtures are so popular that we decided that they needed a category of their own. Bursting on the lighting scene a few years ago, the orb fixture is still our most sought after style. Each lighting manufacturer has their own version of this classic style, putting their unique spin on it. With sizes ranging from 12” to 40”, these fixtures can be used anywhere from the bedroom, foyer, or kitchen island. View some of our most popular orbs here, here and here.
