Think about your favorite styles of homes, the ones that fill the pages of Architectural Digest, Dwell and Better Homes. While their aesthetics and design schemes might differ from home to home, one thing is consistent – attractive homes are all well-lit. A good lighting scheme is essential to a comfortable and inviting home. While chandeliers and pendant lights are funky and fun, lower ceilings can prohibit these additions. But fear not, finding flush ceiling lights with a contemporary design is easy with us. Check out these four modern flushmounts we love.
Joy PL Flushmount by Leucos
With its contemporary honeycomb design, the Joy PL Flushmount is both unique and striking. Designed by Paolo de Lucchi and Giorgia Paganini for Leucos Lighting, this whimsical fixture is large yet lightweight, made from clear methacrylate with metal supports and a chrome finish.
This Italian-made fixture creates a dazzling prism effect, making it the perfect statement flushmount ceiling option.
We installed this ceiling fixture in an Edwardian style living room and it casts a beautiful chrysanthemum looking image onto the ceiling. We used a clear incandescent bulb so you don’t see it and the amount of light is fine for the 24’x14′ room. I got a second fixture for the master bedroom.
Meurice Flushmount by Jonathan Adler
For a contemporary flushmount that draws inspiration from retro chic styles, the Meurice Flushmount is your light. Designed by Jonathan Adler for Jonathan Adler Lighting, this dramatic ceiling fixture lends a Broadway-meets-Hollywood look to any space. Available in Antique Brass, Deep Patina Bronze or Polished Nickel finish, this attractive ceiling light is sure to spark conversation.
This fixture has been used in both a front hall with a low ceiling and a glamorous walk in dressing room, it’s both versatile and beautiful.
Fluid Round Flushmount by Tech Lighting
For something a little more subtle yet still undeniably contemporary and unique, the Fluid Round Flushmount by Tech Lighting is a great option. The undulating shape of the fixture is due to the way it’s made, by pouring molten glass into a contoured mold. The organic form is then fire-polished for its glossy finish. The Fluid Round Flushmount is available with an Antique Bronze, Chrome or Satin Nickel finish and supports Halogen, Fluorescent or LED bulbs.
I love these Fluid lights from Tech Lighting. I originally bought four of the large squares for my front entry, laundry room, stairs, and bathroom. The way the light comes through the glass is beautiful and very organic looking and so when I went to replace our spare bedroom light, I opted to make just a minor change in adding a round fixture. It is equally as beautiful. These are very expensive looking fixtures that draw attention in their simplicity. Worth every penny.
Muse Ceiling Light by AXO
To add a pop of color to your ceiling, the Muse Ceiling Light by Sandro Santantonio for AXO Light is bright and eye-catching. The ceiling lights have silken elastic fabric wrapped around a metal frame and come in four different size options and a range of colors. The Italian-made fixture is a recipient of the Good Design Award (2009), and would be a whimsical addition to any home.
Other Great Options
For a classic choice and customer favorite at Lumens, look to the Boxie Flushmount by Tech Lighting. And if you want to combine the look of a modern flushmount with the functionality of a fan, be sure to see the selection of hugger ceiling fans. There are flush ceiling fan options available with a light, without a light, with remotes, etc.
