Circles, squares, and triangles – oh my! Don’t worry, this article will be far less tedious than your middle school geometry class. As it turns out, shapes are much more fun when you’re mixing and matching them into a lighting work of art!

Use geometric inspired lighting to add a touch of modernity to any room. Strong shapes like squares and triangles add structure and a hint of masculinity, while circles and ovals can help soften a room without losing its contemporary edge.

Honeycomb Pendant



The Vermont Modern Hive Pendant may be one of the most unique designs we've had the chance to showcase here at Kay Lighting.

Crystorama Raw Steel Sconce




As raw in design as in the steel its made from, this Crystorama Capri Sconce is a trendsetting piece sure to stand out. The textural interest of the raw steel is only matched by the strong lines of intersecting rectangles, which lend a rhythmic balance to the light. Brighten up a hallway, bathroom, or foyer with this geometric sconce! Find it here.

The Nico Pendant Collection from Feiss features a cage profile with dramatic geometric flair. Clean lines seamlessly transition into curves, which all meet at a perfect point by using hand-welding techniques achieved only through superb craftsmanship and skill. Adding to the drama is the large scale of the Nico pendants, along with the three brilliantly-polished finishes available, including Copper, Burnished Brass and Chrome. See it here!
