Wire frame designs peel furnishings, lighting and decorative objects back to their “skeletons.” In place of dense, opaque stone, fabric, wood or even lucite stands the metal outline of an object, leaving the imagination to fill in the gaps. This imaginative element, paired with their structural emphasis and pared-down appearance, makes wire frame objects ideal for minimalist interiors. However, with the right finish, the perfect texture and the exacted interplay with other elements, these designs can settle seamlessly into a number of environments. Believing in the versatility of wire frame designs, we at Troy Lighting picked out three wire-inspired pendants ideal for three distinct environments.
Beachy Keen: Hideaway
Warm finishes and open patterns make for coastal vibes. The Hideaway pendant welcomes with an impression of tropical elegance. The delicate, handworked iron cage, finished in champagne leaf, creates the look of an open basket weave. The result of the craftsmanship and artisan detailed effort behind this fixture is the kind of tactile texture not typically associated with metal. Nested within the diamond pattern cage is a high-performance LED light source within a closed bottom glass cylinder that diffuses the light warmly and evenly.
Perfect for: summer beach houses, coastal hotels and beachside glamping sites
Rustic Revelation: Buxton
Iron and linen merge for a rural feel. With a contemporary form built in a rustic way, Buxton offers beautiful details that can’t be replicated. Buxton begins with a cylindrical, natural linen shade, which is enveloped by a unique, handcrafted wrought iron cage. Finished in vintage bronze, the rustic crisscrossed framework is hooked to the top and bottom rings, creating a unique diamond pattern across the fixture. A solid stem connects to the chain leading to the canopy.
Perfect for: bucolic residences, countryside bed and breaksfasts and mountain resorts
Sculptural Wonder: Sanctuary
Swirls of metal bring modern interest to the interior. Blurring the line between abstract, sculptural art and practical illumination, Sanctuary is a whirlwind of creative inspiration. Utilizing LED technology and made from hand-formed iron and rebar, the collection’s textured tendrils are swirled into two dynamic forms finished off in a rich cottage bronze. One form recalls the elegant curves and tapered rim of an upside-down wine glass, while the other is reminiscent of a factory-inspired RLM lampshade.
Perfect for: modern eclectic homes, gallery lobbies and company lounge areas
