It’s been said that swapping out lighting is a simple way to make an impact in a space. But adding a fixture in a dark and moody finish? Instant gravitas.
Lately we’ve been admiring lighting in high-contrast, noirish hues from Lightology. Finished in shades of matte black, charcoal, and smoke, these table lamps, pendants, and sconces—plus side tables and armchairs from Lightology’s selection of design-forward furnishings—channel Scandinavian gothic in a striking (and never too somber) way.
Above: Two light fixtures with arresting silhouettes: the handcrafted Dome Pendant (left, $2,000), pigmented in black, and the geometric Pyramid Table Lamp (right, from $1800) with dimmer, both by In Common With.
