The Top Ten Best Contemporary Hanging Light Fixtures in Victoria B.C.


People often complain that because we live on an island we don’t have cool and contemporary light fixtures available to us.  Here is a selection of lighting that proves quite the contrary.


Which one is your favourite?

If people think the lighting selection in Victoria is bad, they should see the selection in Ottawa :-( We're sadly lacking in ALL areas of home decor, not only lighting.

My favourites here are the Jurgen Bey and Edward van Vlie fixtures. And the Gino Sarfatti fixture too :-)

I like the Cabouche - Foscarini
Designer: Patricia Urquiola. It resembles an anniversary ring, very sparkly and elegant.

I am very partial to B&B Italia so I have to choose any Moooi lights, I love everything Urquiola does, I believe Flos has great I really need to choose one?
To be impartial I'll choose Modernica!

Thank you so much for providing so many wonderful designs for lighting. I hope to see some of them in some HGTV shows, depending on your taste I don't think you could go wrong with any of these, I know I wouldn't. This is a really great top ten list. You can post this to our site and then link back to your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list. I think people really appreciate nice design.

The Jurgen Bey is glamorous and unexpected, love it.

The Random and Dandelion are such classics, but you didn't show the new Moooi Non-Random. Check it out. I saw it in Milan last summer and it has got a vaguely chinese influence.
Have a great weekend.

I vote for all of them :)
Skygarden is really nice though

The skygarden by Flos for me please.

I love the Flos luminaires, but the Foscarini is a new favorites. It probably gives off great lighting effects.

Moooi. I love a few of these but I'm picking that one! Stunning lighting!

I like the simplicity of the Vibia pendant, but I also like Flos for wow appeal.

I'm between the vibia pendant and random light, you just can't go wrong with either of them - that's not to say that I don't love them all though!
