Inviting, warm, bright and cheery; these are just a few words that describe a great entry Foyer. The entry to your home is the first thing your guests see when they visit, and your Foyer should make a statement; one that speaks to the rest of your homes’ design. The Foyer is a great place to introduce layered lighting. If you have a grand entry, perhaps combined with a stairway, a chandelier or large pendant is necessary for lighting the space and is needed for good overall design. If you have a standard ceiling height you can still have an impressive ceiling fixture. There are great semi-flush designs on the market now, like the Exos Double Shade Semi-Flush from Hubbardton Forge. This double shade allows you to mix it up and do two different fabric styles for each shade! This hand forged fixture made in Vermont is offered in a round and square design with 8 different metal finishes to choose from, which makes this fixture even more versatile for different home design styles.
The next layer of lighting in your Foyer can come from either wall sconces or table lamps. If you have room in your foyer, a small console table is always a nice addition for the convenience of having a place for keys and other items. If you add a mirror over the console, it will not only give you a chance for a final glance before you leave for the day, but also will reflect lighting back into the space, making it even brighter. You can flank this mirror with wall sconces, or you can add a table lamp to one end of the table for an asymmetrical look. At the Silver Fox Gallery, a furniture store in WNC, you can find quality made in America lighting fixtures, console tables, mirrors, and wall sconces for your entry Foyer.
