This year already is producing a wonderful variety of lighting trends. They simmered quietly throughout 2018 and now we are seeing them grace many of our homes. We love that these lighting trends are so diverse! From classical, simple lighting to maximalist brass pendants, there really is something for all tastes and inspirations. Here are four top trends you’ll be seeing plenty of in 2019…
Marble has appeared from all over the place in recent times! Heralded as a luxurious material, its peaceful luminous texture lends a dose of elegant calm to any space. Not sure about decking out the kitchen counter in full marble or installing Grecian columns? That’s fair. Marble also looks beautiful on accessory pieces, from chopping boards to lamp bases! The neutrality of marble means that it can be paired both with lampshades that are simple or more ornate. Browse through all vintage and antique marble light designs here.
Ornate brass lamps
Many people are becoming more courageous and referencing maximalist, detail-centric designs in their homes. Traditional brass lighting often plays beautifully on pattern and form, with ornate curling leaves and other natural motifs. Sitting elegantly in a room full of detail, ornate brass lamps carry a charming timeless air of nostalgia and eras gone by. The golden gleam of brass lends real warmth to a room and will also catch and gently reflect the glimmer of other accent lighting around. Find every delightful brass pendant here.
This won’t come as a surprise to existing boho lovers, but rattan lighting is proving a brilliant way to add stylish statement lighting that doesn’t break the bank! Rattan or bamboo lighting is particularly effective in smaller spaces, adding style where a larger or more ornate piece might take up too much space and imbalance the room. It goes wonderfully with many other styles too… step into many of London’s trending bars and you’ll notice an eclectic combination of checked floors, an army of trailing house plants, retro velvet seats and plenty of rattan! Live out all your rattan dreams here.
Last not definitely not least for this lighting design comeback: chandeliers! Whilst chandeliers have never really gone out of fashion in super luxurious interiors, we love that they are playing more of a role in home spaces too. They also come in so many different shapes and forms, from traditional opulent crystal designs to stylish mid century glass droplets in a variety of beautiful colours. Chandeliers are a maximalist’s dream but they can also look very beautiful in a simple pared back interior. Feel inspired? Look through this collection of vintage and antique chandeliers.
