Artistic Illumination

Seeking pragmatic modes of expression, consumers turn to abstract lighting

Implications - While cultural decor and artistic imagery are suitable ways to express personal tastes, aesthetically based products can be hard to justify to budget-conscious consumers. Seeking methods of personal expression in a more practical manner, consumers are turning to abstract lighting options to combine artistic aesthetics with more pragmatic, and functional household goods. This speaks to a desire for products that go beyond mere exterior appeal.
