For 2018, we simply cannot get enough of copper lighting. It makes sense as with its naturally warm and sophisticated appeal, copper is a great choice for both contemporary and traditional interiors. It’s not just copper that is creating excitement for design savvy homeowners, the demand for understated, naturally appealing materials goes from strength to strength. With copper, gold and concrete the key looks for the latest interior designs, it’s easy to find stylish lighting for any space.
Elements of Copper
Copper offers an incredibly versatile look and desirable options include gloss, brushed, hammered and wire look designs. Copper works well with a wide colour palate to create a multitude of looks. From Scandinavian chic and mid-century design, to boho vibes and industrial county, a stylish copper lamp or pendant light adds instant warmth and, of course, luxury appeal.
Go bold with statement pendants or create a more discrete look with subtle copper highlights. With other key trends that include concrete and gold, look out for clever combinations of materials.
Metallic touches are nothing new for interior design trends, but the big difference this year is the rapid rise in our love of all things gold. The latest colour palettes feature an eclectic mix of rich, deep colours, sweet soft pastels and ombre earthy tones. So if you are looking for a light that will effortlessly harness these colours and create focus, you need to be looking for gold.
Lights and lamps are the perfect way to inject a new trend into a room without having to invest in larger, furniture pieces. Whether you opt for a splash of shimmer or a more dramatic look, gold lighting is a sophisticated and understated addition.
Lighting design set in concrete
While the love of concrete in contemporary interiors shows little sign of tailing off, it’s a look that is often associated with more industrial designs. Prepare to be illuminated, for in 2018, concrete lights are transforming the look.
When used in lighting, this robust material can add warmth and raw beauty to the home. Let’s not forget texture, as concrete has an abundance of tactile appeal that naturally adds a connection to any interior. Juxtaposed with different textures, fabrics and colours, concrete lamps and pendants add a timeless, grounded appeal. The perfect partner to the latest trends in copper and gold finish, the addition of natural wood finish is another winning collaboration.
