It's often said that lighting is the "jewelry of the home." It's the finishing touch, the statement-maker, the wow factor. It's an incredible way to express your personality and add drama to a space. We like to think of statement lighting as "Conversation Starters." Our statement lighting creates a dialogue between two or more people: you won't have to worry about any awkward silences when guests enter your home and see your amazing lighting fixtures!

Sculptural forms, unusual design elements, large-scale sizing and brilliant finishes transform functional lighting fixtures into works of art. The tiny size of LED light sources, as well, has enabled lighting designers to create dynamic silhouettes that weren't possible with traditional incandescent bulbs.

Here are our picks for some of the best conversation-starting lighting to showcase your home’s personality and make maximum impact in your space.

LED Pendants


The Radian LED Pendant defines a sleek contemporary style with an industrial vibe. A soft satin white domed metal shade is supported by a contrasting cap and is finished inside with a reflective soft satin gold coating that casts a warm glow of light from its integrated 30W LED module. The pendant's sleek design is ideal for any kitchen, breakfast nook or bar area in modern, contemporary, and mid-century modern style settings. It's also offered in two additional finishes: crisp black with a soft gold interior and a warehouse-inspired brushed nickel shade capped with black and soft gold within.

Semi-Flush Mount Lighting

The Delayne Collection has a mid-century appeal defined by an array of arms with a star-like appearance that extends outward from a rounded, central support. Each spoke arm is tipped with an exposed bulb which can be customized with a round, candelabra or linear bulb, adding to the modern design and creating a soft ambient light. Select decorative light bulbs in a clear or white finish to further enhance this dynamic style. In addition, its sophisticated brushed bronze metallic finish interacts with the light, casting stunning reflections on ceilings.

LED Chandelier

Sleek rods coated in a beautiful matte black finish anchor the luminous circles for a retro yet contemporary vibe. Four slim disks of integrated LEDs cast an ethereal glow that creates a multi-directional wash of even light.
