Lighting the way forward

Modern interior design ideas are in a constant state of flux. So says Melissa Davidson from leading lighting supplier, The Lighting Warehouse, who goes on to add: “Lighting trends are fuelled by the constant incursion of new materials and novel forms, along with the ever changing technological innovations that are being introduced, and of course the ever inspiring element of human creativity and modern interior design trends. What was fresh and inspiring two years back may not necessarily be stylish and interesting today, and some trends that were popular decades ago seem to be making a big comeback.”

The hottest trends for 2016:

Vintage-Chic5

Industrial chic with a vintage edge: The stripped-down, hipster-inspired designs of the urban-industrial décor trend remain an ever-popular inspiration for lighting, and décor as a whole. This modern, yet vintage-inspired trend is heavily influenced by early 20th century manufacturing and Victorian style. Light fittings made from materials with an antique-type aesthetic and weathered paint effects are bang on trend. Also, lighting with antique-style bulbs and mechanical detailing are very popular.: The stripped-down, hipster-inspired designs of the urban-industrial décor trend remain an ever-popular inspiration for lighting, and décor as a whole.

Organically natural: With today’s focus on the environment and green living, a major emerging trend in lighting design is natural or organic style lighting. This kind of lighting boasts designs that are delicate, have a nature-inspired earthy feel and they can be made from organic materials. Lighting with a more casual, contemporary design, is a hot trend at the moment.
