Five Lighting Trends to Know in 2018

Calander Image 3/30/2018
From crystal to brass, our home lighting experts share five lighting trends of 2018.

 

We're well into 2018, which means your home lighting fixtures might need an update. Here are the most popular trends our lighting designers have seen so far this year.

1. Less is More

People say design is cyclical, and well..they might be right. Gold, brass and antique brass are back, but in new form. This year, skip the 80's shine and opt for a more modern, flat and muted look. Tip: some brass comes without a clear coat finish, which allows it to age and patina over time.

2. Cya, Crystal!

This year, we're seeing less interest in traditional crystal than in the past. Instead, try lighting up your traditional home with clean and minimal fixtures.

3. Black is Back

Black is creeping up in a few of our manufacturer's offerings, but we predict that this trend will be even stronger next year! For now, black is disguised under names like Aged Iron, Distressed Zink and Blacked Foraged. Tip: try this in a white space for a little extra drama!

4. Mix it Up!

Remember that "brown and black don't go together" rule? Yeah, we threw that one out the window a long time ago. Same goes for your lighting! Mixing metals adds extra interest to a singular space. Tip: experiment with finish combos like brass and chrome or bronze and brass!

5. Love Your Lighting

Lighting is transitioning out of purely function and into aesthetic. We're seeing an increase in organic, artful and statement interior lighting pieces. Tip: try home accents like decorative wall light fixtures, designer lamps, an entryway chandelier or wall art!
