Lighting up with LED lights and Swarovski crystals: the perfect marriage between energy saving and elegance.
“Lighting is the Queen”
There’s no doubt that lighting plays a fundamental role in design and renovation projects, both regarding light flow and balancing, in order to create suggestive light effects, and also from an aesthetic point of view, through research and selection of light sources that give personality and uniqueness to ambiances.
The market provides many choices to illuminate, from floor/table lamps to wall and ceiling lights, as well as adjustable spotlights, partition walls and decorative panels; but if you’d like to obtain an optimal quality of lighting in a room, in addition to lamp positioning, we have to consider lighting sources (LED, incandescent, halogen) since they influence bulbs lifespan, light intensity and quality.
Nowadays, it can’t be denied that the use of LED sources is becoming more and more frequent since energy saving and longer life of light bulbs, although more expensive, result in long-term sustainable cost-effectiveness: the economic savings can reach up to 80% on the electricity bill, while bulbs lifespan can reach up to 50,000 hours, compared to about 2,000 hours of halogen lamps.
As yet, the technical side.
What about adding a touch of class now? Well, here comes the main character: Crystal.
Here, too, we can draw on several options, but in the first position, we place the renowned Swarovski crystals, thanks to the high quality of making and material used.
The lighting featured fascinating and luxurious sparkles that enhanced the design of each lamp, lending class, elegance, and personality to residential and commercial environments as well as prestigious hotels. The peculiarity of crystals is lighting up through bulbs and during the day, with lights off, embracing the reflection of natural light that filters from the outside and creates effects of rare magic.
Using crystals to emphasize light, we can give life to classy atmospheres even in simple and minimal spaces, adding a note of classic and retro charm that embraces the modernity of LED technology: the perfect marriage between energy saving and elegance.
Actually, the connection between the word “Swarovski” and the thought, "Well, how much will I spend?" is immediate. As mentioned above, the history and quality guaranteed by Swarovski are indisputable, but the market also offers alternative solutions that are more accessible and can have very similar effects.
Another crystal well appreciated and with an excellent quality/price ratio is Spectra by Swarovski, an ideal line for the lighting industry characterized by clear crystal cuts, placing itself between the premium line Swarovski and another line of crystals very known and appreciated: Asfour crystals.
This is a good choice that we use for standard versions in our Arabesque Lighting collection*. They are made of high-quality material and are renowned for their excellent brilliance, precise cuts and facets, plus high light reflection, features that give a unique identity to each realization.
So combining crystals with LED lights creates unique and astonishing effects, suitable for both private homes and lounge halls in exclusive parties or feast days such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve, opting for floor/table lamps regarding residential lighting whilst using majestic and spectacular chandeliers in villas, lounges and luxury hotels, where spaces are roomier and we can leave guests open-mouthed enjoying shimmer and brilliance.
“This marriage must not take place, neither tomorrow nor ever,” bravoes ordered to the poor Don Abbondio in "The Betrothed", the famous Italian historical novel by Alessandro Manzoni.
Well, in this case, we are not willing to obey.
* We remind you that our Arabesque Lighting collection offers standard items that can be customized in size, base and structure finish, bulbs, and crystals.
