Although crystal has symbolized wealth and sophistication for thousands of years, many consumers think of crystal lighting as a style that was popular in the homes of their grandmothers. Crystal’s value hasn’t changed, but its perception as belonging to an older generation has. These days, crystal lighting has been reinterpreted into modern styles that still convey classic elegance, but offer an updated twist that appeals to a much younger generation.  Here is an assortment of some of the newest designs in crystal lighting. 

 Feiss Home Lighting

Feiss: Inspired by the silhouette of cabanas along Miami Beach, the Soros Collection offers a contemporary take on crystal.

The 8-light fixture shown here measures 17” high x 48 1/8” long x 14-5/8” wide and features an Ebonized Silver Leaf finish. www.feiss.com
