The transitional home decorating style may be difficult to identify, as it’s so widespread and mainstream. Sometimes known as classic with a contemporary twist, transitional style is basically the halfway point between traditional and modern. It’s a more casual version of traditional design that focuses more on comfort than ornamentation.
Transitional lighting incorporates some of those traditional elements, like wood, but fixtures are usually neutral in color and include straight lines and simple curves. It’s simple yet sophisticated and minimalist yet practical. If you find highly ornamental light fixtures a bit too traditional, but don’t like anything too modern and contemporary, transitional lighting might fit the bill for you.
Transitional lighting fixtures often incorporate fabric finishes and clean lines that blend with other styles. The Shaker, Mission and Asian styles are well-known examples of transitional design. Many different manufacturers offer transitional styles, but some of the well-known ones include Elk Lighting, Generation Lighting, and Savoy House.
