Using the “mix and match” technique, you can combine different color shades of wood, with some limitations of course. Since wood color shades fall into a neutral category, they’re easy to combine. Combination of a dark wood with a light colored one, always looks elegant and intended as a decorative move. The only decorative restriction is that you can’t have more than 3 different color shades of wood in a small space, as this would lead to a visual mismatch. You must keep in mind that combining different colors of wood is being done for centuries, as long as the wood grain is visible and not masked by heavy finishing.
Handmade wooden lights that are made of light colored wood, such as olive and bamboo, ash or maple,(ex Oak lights) allow light to pass through their veneer grain and makes the lampshade look even more impressive. That is why light colored woods make your space brighter and are the best choice if you want to use them as your main light source. On the other hand, wooden lights that are made out of darker and more dense woods, like walnut, darker ash, elm or oak,(ex a Walnut lamp) allow the light to pass only from the top and the bottom and not through their grain. This makes them ideal if you want to focus the light to more specific areas in your space.
However your choice doesn’t have to be restricted to Ceiling lights, on the contrary its usually the less intended. Floor lamps well as a Table lamp can contribute greatly to the lighting of your space and give a whole new feel that will make your space look bigger and more open.
We love making unique Handmade wooden lights, because we believe that wood is a material that brings us and our space closer to nature. We also believe that how a room is lighted changes every room’s style and our mood when we are in it.
