We’re halfway through Boho week, and so far we’ve covered the background and history of the style, as well as our furniture picks for you to get the look. Today we’re going bright and sharing all the info you need on lighting. 

Boho style is all about an eclectic mix, and lighting is no exception. It’s influenced by cultures and design techniques from around the globe, whether it be Moroccan style brass lanterns, natural materials influenced by tropical locales or ceramic sconces with a desert vibe. Whether layered with other elements or own their own, materials like metal, fringe, beads, wood and fibers are prominent components and help define this lighting style.

Even if you might think Boho isn’t for you, there’s such a wide array of materials and options that you will definitely find something that will vibe with your space.
