Let There Be Light: Five Homes With Striking Light Fixtures

Whether they’re artfully sculptural, modernly minimal, or dazzlingly crystalline, distinctive light fixtures make each of these homes shine.

Tribeca Treasure

Kristen Wu, Allen Wu | Sotheby’s International Realty – Downtown Manhattan Brokerage

High above the Four Seasons Hotel in Tribeca, this 2,265-square-foot residence combines a landmark location with modern aesthetics. Of the three bedrooms, the primary suite boasts full-height windows, a wet bar, and a bath with a soaking tub, a marble shower, and heated floors. In a prime corner position, the eat-in kitchen features rift-cut Bilotta cabinetry and Gaggenau and Miele appliances. The living room enjoys dramatic southerly views through double-height windows and adjoins a dining room with an artful chandelier that mimics flowering branches.

Modern Hollywood Haven

Richard Yohon | Sotheby’s International Realty – Los Feliz Brokerage

This sleek, streamlined 2,943-square-foot Hollywood home is a paradigm of modern design. Its fluid open-plan spaces include living and dining areas, a kitchen with Miele and Thermador appliances, and a relaxed family room—all opening to a terrace with views across the treetops and canyon toward hills in the distance. A unique fixture composed of dangling glass globe pendants illuminates the stairway that leads to the three bedroom suites and a private deck with a pool, a spa, and lounging areas.

Chic Century City Condominium

Within Century City’s coveted Le Parc community, this single-level two-bedroom residence exemplifies modern elegance. The open, light-filled floor plan features a spacious living room, a formal dining room, a kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, and a breakfast room with a built-in banquette, doors to a terrace with treetop views, and eye-catching contemporary lighting. Le Parc provides 24-hour guard-gated security; 10 acres of manicured grounds, lush gardens, ponds, and waterfalls; swimming pools and a spa; tennis courts; a gym; and a clubhouse.

Prospect Park Perfection

West Palm Beach’s Prospect Park neighborhood is the setting for this impeccably renovated four-bedroom villa. Natural light and a pleasantly minimalist aesthetic fills nearly every room, including an owner’s suite with a breakfast bar, a balcony, a luxurious bath, and generous closet space. The main-level great room opens to a loggia and a pool with waterfalls and is adjoined by a kitchen with a dazzling mirrored tile backsplash and an island crowned by contemporary lighting composed of linear rod pendants.

Elegant Enclave in Houston

This elegant three-bedroom manor enjoys an enviable location in a guard-gated community of only 15 homes near some of Houston’s finest shops and restaurants. Its recently renovated 5,637-square-foot interiors include a handsome kitchen with an oversized island and a breakfast area, a family room overlooking the walled backyard garden, a stylish living room, and a formal dining room with a radiant Sputnik-style chandelier. An elevator links the three levels, all of which feature hardwood floors, high ceilings, and classical moldings.
