hat explains the durability of traditional design?
Take, for example, the austere rooms reminiscent
of the late 1700s: Those are just as traditional as
the more opulent spaces from the Victorian era. Although
the rooms span centuries, what’s common to them, what
makes them traditional, is a dedication to classic forms and
materials, to a sense of craftsmanship and elegance that
speaks of longevity.
The same can be said of the lighting used to accent and
illuminate those rooms. Those fixtures often rely on metal,
glass, and crystals as well as generously curved yet classic
forms. And within traditional or classic lighting, you will also
find a wide-ranging collection of lighting fixtures. They may
be more spare or a more lavish execution of multi-layered
chandeliers. These rooms demonstrate some of the best
traditional lighting has to ofer.
