Just as a lady need not be dainty, delicate, or fragile, neither does a ladylike light fixture. A new wave of lamps, chandeliers, pendants, and sconces are boasting bold design done in fresh materials, all with a feminine flair. From the high (Kelly Wearstler's new sconce for Circa Lighting) to the low (West Elm's charming new task lamp), there is surely a switch you'll want to flip. And it doesn't matter if you live in a modern loft or a country cabin; a little bit of girlish charm will go a long way.
