Here are some of our favourite interior lighting trends that you should look out for in 2018.
There’s a reason that some of Glasgow’s hippest bars – like the West End’s beGIN – are illuminated by a tangled array of hanging and exposed Edison Bulbs. It’s because industrial lighting is incredibly popular in 2018. Whether you’re in Glasgow, London or New York, it’s almost impossible to visit anywhere without running into old rusted pipes, exposed bulbs and repurposed wood being used as the basis of light fixtures. If your home or business interior design plans involve any exposed brick walls or repurposed furniture, then bringing all that together with this style of lighting is the perfect way to keep your design consistent.
If rust and wood isn’t the look you’re going for, then another very popular light design trend in 2018 sticks to the old adage that less is more. Engaging design doesn’t have to be big and bold and, if you subscribe to this opinion, then you can choose lighting that distills design down to the bare bones, whilst still making a huge statement. Think clean lines, simple shapes and striking angles to complement a similarly sparse design throughout your business or home.
In certain areas of your house or office, big can certainly mean better. Used to create an instant impact in a key location for visitors, like an office foyer or large reception room, bold lighting design can act as a centrepiece. Large crystal chandeliers are a sure-fire, but costly, way to make a huge instant impact. A more modern and artistic option might be to hang LED lighting in a variety of shapes and sizes from the ceiling.
Finally, a lighting design trend that has proven to be evergreen, is mid-century modernism. This style of design has been in fashion since it first arrived in the 50s and 60s and, well, it’s not really going anywhere! As Europe and America entered the jubilation of the post-war period, so too did the design. The period is awash with geometric shapes and swerving lines, with Arco Lamps a particularly popular stalwart of the era.
