Top 5 Lighting Trends of 2021
Artful Ceiling Lights
When light fixtures hang from the ceiling, they instantly become the focal point within a room or space.
2021’s feel of contemporary, yet classic design lends itself to unique ceiling light fixtures that are made to make statements.
Standing out the most are fixtures that can put light into corners and have metallic details that will help bounce light.
Floor Lamps Paired With Sculpted Tables
Much like the movie Beetlejuice, sculptural tables coupled with floor lamps are paving the way for framing and accentuating furniture pieces such as a console table or small reading chair.
With this lighting design you can light up otherwise dimmed spaces and offer a fresh touch to the overall look of your home.
Colors and Patterns
The use of colors in patterns with lighting solutions has always been a hidden secret to eclectic interior design.
If you’re looking to make accent pieces pop, adding vibrant colors and patterns around lighting will do just the trick.
The unique thing about colors and patterns is its ability to lift emotional vibrations and enhance the feel of a room.
Brass Lighting Trends
This material has long roots digging back into ancient Egyptian homes , and rightfully so. Brass has been seen and known to make other materials and colors pop by simply being added to just a portion of a fixture.
Whether you choose a shine or matte finish, you can’t go wrong with pairing brass with natural elements and/or marble.
Ever wonder how to make light hit certain parts of your wall to give your decor a boost? Or how about getting light to highlight that one piece hidden in the corner? Show-off lighting will do just that.
It’s often said that lighting should come from multiple places versus just one centerpiece. You can use a variety of lighting solutions to provide a cozy feel to an atmosphere, or even a brighter touch in areas for work.
