Next up… wallpaper: one of the fun design trends that is picking up steam in 2011!

We hauthaus gals love to go out and see what’s new and hot on the market.  Recently we went to Francis King at IMS and got the inside scoop on the new lighting trends this summer. Here are some of our favorites from a manufacturer that operates domestically in the United States… gotta love that!

Lollipop red pendant

This curvy pendant is made of bent wire. It would add a surprise pop of color into any room, and the classic lines of the piece will ensure it looks great in the space for years to come.

Re-used burlap table light

Old burlap flour sacks are used to create this one of a kind table lamp. Each lamp is different, which adds to it’s authenticity and whimsy. What a great way to put these old, unused flour sacks to good use!

Mid mod pendant

The manufacturer uses gracefully curved wood and a linen shade to evoke a mid-century modern feel.  This is pendant offers a clean and timeless look.

We loved these light fixtures because of their innovation, use of green, recycled materials, and the fact that they are produced right here in the US. What fun lights!
