Warm wood along the lamp stem expertly complements the cool brushed-nickel finish of the base. The two-tier shantung shade adds a welcome softness to the proceedings. Trend Lighting was established in Los Angeles more than 30 years ago in order to set design trends rather than follow them as a “me too” brand. Its distinctive lamps and fixtures, all designed in-house, can be seen in four- and five-star hotels worldwide, not to mention in various movies and television programs. Made with only top-of-the-line metals, fabrics, and components, this is lighting that will provide a lifetime of illumination.
