Lighting is one of those simple updates that can totally transform a room. Great lighting feels harmonious and draws just the right amount of attention. If you’re looking to make a bold, dramatic statement or simply get your fixtures up to date, we’ve rounded up the biggest and best lighting trends to help you truly light up your space.

1. Brushed Brass

If you’ve been scrolling through your favourite design Instagram accounts this year, you’ve probably noticed that brass is everywhere. Brushed brass, which has a softer matte finish and vintage quality, is especially popular. And we can certainly see why. This finish mixes beautifully with other metals and can add just the right amount of vintage soulfulness to any space.

2. Sculptural Silhouettes

Lamp and light fixtures with artful shapes feel unique, unexpected, and totally on trend. A pendant with sleek articulating metal rods adds modern interest to a room. A classic tripod base floor lamp brings an architectural quality to a space. Be sure to place these sculptural fixtures in an area with unobstructed views, where they get the attention they deserve.

3. Fluted Glass

The Art Deco-inspired vertical grooves of fluted glass adds beautiful texture to a variety of lights. It’s a stylish look in both clear and milk glass. With so many fixture options, ranging from sconces to flushmounts to chandeliers, the possibilities to incorporate this trend into both modern and traditional spaces are endless.

4. Crisp White Light

A white linen shade adds a beautiful soft, glowing light to any space. Forever in style, linen looks particularly timeless when paired with sleek nickel to reflect light. To channel the modern farmhouse trend, white linen adds a dose of contrast in an industrial matte black metal frame.

5. The Modern Ceiling Fan

With elevated designs and virtually silent motion, ceiling fan lights are back and trending in a big way. If you love the modern farmhouse look, opt for a softly rustic style. If you’re looking to cool down a modern room, go for a sleek style. There are tons of beautiful options when it comes to these functional fixtures.
