Part of offering the latest in contemporary lighting designs is staying on top of the latest trends and technological advances in the field. Thingz buyers set aside time to attend the authority on all contemporary lighting, the Dallas Lighting Market. Held twice a year in the summer and winter, the Dallas Lighting Market takes place at the Dallas Market Center and showcases the best that leading lighting manufacturers have to offer.
Lots of Sparkle!
A lot of sparkle was to be had in modern lighting at this year’s Dallas Lighting Market according to Home Furnishing News. The buyers from Thingz experienced a lot of shimmer throughout the showrooms. With thousands of product lines to be inspired by, attendees of the conference found themselves introduced to new products. With a keen eye for modern design, Thingz offers the Radin Square which is a chrome chandelier. Filled with sparkle, this product’s reflecting crystals flow directly into the sparkle foretold in design at the Lighting Market.
On January 15th through the 19th, the Dallas Lighting Market took place and in June on the 18th through the 24th it will happen once again. The show aims to introduce new technologies with a keen focus on environmental sustainability. 10times.com explains that manufacturers try to give buyers information about “recent policies added to the sector.” One million square feet of showrooms and displays are available to browse with all different types of lighting for residential and commercial use. Gold accents and the use of gold in lighting was another top trend at the 2014 market according to Andrea Lillo on behalf of Home Furnishing News. Thingz’ very own Half Moon Floor Lamp embraces this rich color and contrasts it with a dark brown wood. Mixing contrasting colors reflects the contemporary styling and modern use of gold.
LED technology was a huge focus at the Dallas Lighting Market. Moving forward, lighting will become much more LED focused. LED lights use up less energy than incandescent bulbs and can last longer. Buyers were educated by the American Lighting Association while at the market and enjoyed new debuted lighting companies. Many showrooms focused on LED technology. At Thingz, there are many LED options such as the Firefrost Pendant by Tech Lighting. Tech Lighting specializes in “unique hi-tech low voltage” lighting that is the future of residential lighting. This pendant can be equipped with a 5.8 watt replaceable LED module and comes in five different colors of glass.
Inspiration from Nature
Contemporary lighting accessories such as the Riesling are what make Thingz modern and unique. This futuristic pendant is inspired by icicles and is fit for a modern dining space. A lot of lighting at the Lighting Market resembled nature which is the new contemporary direction in interiors. Lighting companies such as Lite Master, Elk Lighting, and Crystal Lighting all were present at the show. Over three thousand buyers showed up to gain insights into where the design industry was headed and buyers from Thingz weren’t disappointed with the nature-inspired lighting debuts. The Riesling is described as having “fluid beauty” with “rippled ice crystalline designs.” With six bulbs, this lighting option will offer a lot of illumination with great style.

Another LED light offered by Thingz is the Coronado Pendant. This light also by Tech Lighting comes with a replaceable 5.8 watt LED module. In true Thingz fashion, the movement toward LED lighting has already been recognized and there are many pendants offered with this technology in their inventory.
