There’s something about the black and gold combination in interior design that exudes effortless glamour and creates a luxe statement – it is an interior design trend that has stood the test of the time and has no signs of going away.

Hudson Valley Lighting Group are experts in elegant black and gold lighting pieces, the brand’s gorgeous range of lighting is versatile and can adapt to fit any décor or style of home. Favourite pieces from HVLG include Origami, West End and Melrose which give a rich, dramatic and timeless aesthetic to any space.

Origami Pendant

This geometric yet simple piece is sure to turn heads as people enter a room. Origami turns the precise and intricate practice of the ancient art of folding paper into a three-dimensional, modern masterpiece lighting collection. At the centre of the piece is a stunning clear frosted glass bulb that falls elegantly as a pendant. At first glance the hand-worked iron exterior has a depth and perspective that is unexpected in a metal piece. It is the variation in geometric shape, angles, and actual thickness of the metal that contribute to the dynamic dimension, playing with perspective and offering a fresh and unique view from any angle. The piece is available in a beautiful bronze with gold leaf finish in a choice of three pendant sizes, as well as a wall sconce to brighten up and add some character to those sometimes-forgotten corners of a space.

Ace Chandelier

Suspended on a beautiful, brushed brass, Ace’s six circular shades are spread out in an arrangement that gives a space-like, out-of-this-world feel. A new spin on atomic age allure, Ace’s strong elements are accented by diagonal and off-centre lines. Glossy orb diffusers evenly distribute the light. One of the details that makes it such a standout piece are the small woven cords running from the arms to the back of the diffusers, where a curved piece of Brushed Brass or Polished Nickel matches the sphere and rod at Ace’s core. Available in a textured bronze brushed brass finish with gorgeous gloss opal glass shades, in three varying sized chandeliers, as well as a traditional wall sconce.

Melrose Pendant

With its vibrant block colours, the Melrose pendant pays homage to the black and gold style by displaying the colours in contrast to each other loud and proud. Designed by Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Melrose was inspired by the French industrialist movement of the 1940s. These blown glass and vintage brass fixtures conjure a vibe of old Parisian cafés, yet their scale is a bold modern statement, giving them a timeless and multi-functional appeal. The hand-applied finish has a rich, aged patina that sets these pieces apart. The smaller, one-light pendant version with matching canopy and cloth-covered cord features thick, polished acrylic for the diffuser, adding yet another layer of glamour. The pendant is also available in two sizes of a gold and white themed pendant with black insides for a less dramatic style that is still ultramodern and luxurious.
