Fancy Lights

At Red Knot we lo-ove accessories!

Our trendy buying team makes it a point to find fun accessories at market.  It’s no surprise when one day, our showrooms were filled with the latest, jaw-droppingly-gorgeous-but-not-over-the-top-conversation-starter-and-too-pretty-to-use lighting accessories ever seen at Red Knot.

A post last March introduced the basics of lighting.  Today, we’re taking it up a notch, sharing with you some of our “superlights”.  These are our lighting accessories currently in the limelight.  We’re talking F-A-N-C-Y, fancy– (but you already know).  

Let us introduce to you…

…The Glamorous One

RedKnot_LightingAccessories1
Ladies, your dream has come true.  A stylish “chandelier” lamp without the weight and cost of the real one!  This pendant lamp screams glamour and chic with three tiers of cascading silver loops.  Hang it over your bed or vanity, and it brings out your inner diva.  You were born to be a superstar!

…The Thomas Edison(s)

RedKnot_ThomasEdisonLightsA nod to the man who developed the first commercially successful lightbulb, these Thomas Edison lights are our most recognized designs.  Perfect for those who want a part of history in their home, or to add a trace of antiquity in a nominal way.   Also great to have around for anyone looking for inspiration or ideas.  Don’t you just love those lightbulb aha! moments?

…The Flowerburst

RedKnot_HangingLight3Literally, a burst of floral polypropylene cutouts.  The multi-layer cutouts create a burst of white floral fringe.  Extraordinarily detailed and unique, we have never seen anything like it.  Putting it together was well quite… perplexing…however the end result is breathtaking.

…The Blind Moon

RedKnot_HangingLight2
Did you know that a circle can be made of straight lines?  The circular shape consists of ribbons, made with plastic similar to window blinds, which are layered and interlocked to create an intricate sphere.  This contemporary linear sphere pendant light brings a unique take on the moon shape we are naturally familiar with.  Hence, the blind moon, get it? ;P

…The Weathered Element

RedKnot_MercuryLamps

There’s something about the nature of an element such as hydrargyrum (in layman’s term Hg, or quicksilver a.k.a mercury) that can bring character into a space. Vintage yet stunning, this mercury glass table lamp features a crackled metallic finish.   Trust us on this, what you see is not rust.

…The Crystal Snowballs

RedKnot_SphereLights
These sphere lamps could also be called “the disco balls”, but boring ones without all the fun colors, so maybe not.  It reminded us primarily of snowballs, which is so much better, because you know, in Hawaii snow and building a snowman is what we wish we had as part of our childhood. Oh Elsa, we just can’t let it go.

….The Artist’ ScrollRedKnot_SatinLamps

This beautiful lamp features elaborate gold print on a drum shade.  If henna tattoos and Victorian damask print had a baby, this artwork will be it.  The candlestick base is painted white with a crystal glass finish for an elegant touch.  We have no problem of letting this one just sit there looking oh-so-pretty.

Lastly, we can’t leave this final one hanging… (yes, pun intended 🙂 )

The Honorable Mention…RedKnot_HangingGlobe

Only the most creative mind can appreciate this thing of beauty. The globe metal sphere hangs like a boss, adding a point of interest in any room it is placed in.  You can place any chandelier, candelabras, or pendant light, of your choice as size allows within the sphere.  This globe sphere has been widely used in different spaces for residential, retail and commercial space.  The most popular placement is the dining room!

Through Rose (Gold)-Colored Glasses

Silver can be so cold, gold can be too lavish, but rose gold….it has a certain charm to it. I’ve noticed in recent years that rose gold and copper metal has all but taken over a lot of the home decor world, particularly when it comes to millennials. Watch any home decor haul on Youtube and I promise you’ll see at least one piece of rose gold or copper in almost every single video. But what makes these two warm metals so special? Well, let’s talk about the difference between the two.

Both are a variation of the well beloved gold shade. While copper has a very orange based undertone, rose gold is a mixture between copper and gold with a more pink undertone. Copper is seen more often in home decor but a touch of rosy metallic shine is not unheard of either.

What I love about this rose gold and copper trend is it’s warmth. Gold can often times be too loud or bright, where as rose gold and copper brings a warmer yet luxurious feel. From light fixtures to accessories, take a look at some of the great ways you can welcome this new metal into your home!

Color We Love – Green!

Here at Red Knot we do color. Lots of color! And since spring is in the air, we are celebrating one of our favorite colors by going (bright) green!

A mixture of yellow and blue, the color green is a secondary color on the color wheel. Since yellow is a warm color and blue is a cool color, green is considered the color of balance.  There are more shades of green more than any other color – the range is almost infinite.

Green can look completely different depending on the balance of yellow and blue. The brightness can be muted by mixing in white or gray, but can be turned into a dramatic and more masculine hue by mixing in black.

Physically, green is believed to mentally soothe and encourage relaxation. The color works beautifully in spas, doctor’s offices and health clinics. It is the most restful color to the eye optically because of its neutral spectral wavelength. It is also the color used for night-vision goggles because the human eye is most sensitive to and able to distinguish the most shades of that color. Psychologically, green is believed to alleviate depression and reduce nervousness and anxiety. No longer just a color, the term “green” is universally associated with Mother Nature and the mentality that we should be taking care of our environment.

Don’t be afraid to use green when it comes to home furnishing and design. Because of its placement in the color wheel, green can match virtually anything. It can be a pop of color in a room through accent pieces, but it can most definitely be the focal point of the space as well!

Some of our favorites here at RK are below.
