Wicker lamps

Wicker ceiling lamps are beautiful and hard-wearing.

As we’ve mentioned before, natural materials are in. They help to create a warm and welcoming environment and are really beautiful in their designs. One of the most popular natural materials is wicker. In the past, they were mainly used for making baskets, chairs or other pieces of furniture.

Wicker comes from the plant of the same name. It is soaked to make it more flexible and easier to work with. Nowadays very few craftsmen work with this material, but it is nevertheless starting to regain its popularity in the world of interior decorating.

Wicker ceiling lamps come in a whole range of shapes and sizes. They are really hard-wearing and resistant to any knocks, bumps or high temperatures. If you decide to hang one of these in your home, it’s sure to become the focal point of any room.

You can also find painted wicker ceiling lamps. Whether you choose painted or unpainted wicker will depend on your personal taste and the decorative style of your home. However, we prefer the more natural styles, which let you see the material in all its beauty.

Geometric wooden ceiling lamps

Wooden ceiling lamps are rustic and beautiful.

If we’re going to talk about rustic decor, we can’t forget about wood. You might say that, of all the materials we use to decorate and furnish our homes, this is the most fundamental. It isn’t just strong and hard-wearing, it also brings a feeling of warmth to your home.

Plus, we’re also talking about the vintage look, a style which dates back several decades. Geometric shapes work perfectly with this style and are what make these lamps so special.

These types of lamps are ideal for entrance halls, bedrooms or even reading corners. With their straight, simple lines, you could even hang several lamps at different heights to create a really original arrangement.

Ceiling lamps: metallic designs

Vintage metal ceiling lamps.

We’ve already talked about wicker and wood, but we couldn’t finish this post without mentioning one of the most popular materials in rustic and vintage decor: metal. Because it is strong, resistant to high temperatures and reasonably low-cost, the majority of antique ceiling lamps were made out of metal.

In the case of this particular lamp, it has been inspired by vintage designs. The designer has added a metal frame to the base to give this lamp a whole new look. It is bold, daring, and beautiful in equal measure.

Its design makes this a ceiling lamp that’ll look great anywhere in your home. Plus, if your room is big enough, you could hang several at different heights to create a more interesting look.
