Lighting trends for the home

Pendant lighting

Floor Lamps

Standing lamps can be a real statement feature in the home and bring a significant amount of light to focus on a certain area. Matte colours can look really sleek, especially when positioned next to a sofa or bookcase in a similar hue. There are many different styles of floor lamp available from ones with a brass polished finish to ones with angular shades and vintage bell styles.

Table Lamps

2016 has welcomed a variety of new shapes and styles when it comes to desk and table lamps. The main trends tend to be quite similar to that of floor lamps, just on a smaller scale.  Sleek, lean designs, either in a matte or brass finish, to complement the neutral colour pallet of Scandinavian design trends are really popular at the moment and add the perfect finishing touch to your interiors.  There’s a table lamp to suit all occasions whether you’re looking for a bedside light, softer evening lighting or a desk lamp for better visibility.

When it comes to lighting, there’s so much to choose from that lighting up your home is now a decorative process rather than a necessity.  A new table lamp can add the finishing touches to your room to make it feel complete or a new pendant light can instantly become the focus of your room depending on the style that you go for. With such a wide variety of exciting and new styles available at you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to brightening up your home.
