Lighting is often a secondary consideration when designing an interior. It’s only once the furniture has been chosen and arranged that decorative lighting solutions are called upon to really bring the room to life. And not just in terms of functional brightness – the right lamp in the right place makes the most of the decor and has a significant impact on the overall ambience. The latest lighting trends offer a wide range of inspiring ideas for every style.
Small table lamps with a big impact
A quick look at the lighting industry scarcely reveals anything average. Indeed, the current range of products available is dominated by large statement lamps and small light sources. Decorative table lamps in particular showcase the creativity of their designers. Whether on a bookshelf, bedside table or windowsill, they attract attention, drawing the focus to exciting elements in the room or making an impression thanks to their own shape and design.
The designs are just as varied as the places they can be located, with geometric lamps challenging the eye and creating visual tension – both on their own and in combination with the rest of the decor. In the case of the decorative Pascal table lamp from Eichholtz , for example, round glass spheres have been paired with a rectangular metal frame. Playful light sources, filament lamps and neon lettering can provide pops of brightness and don’t even need eye-catching fixtures.
And finally, amusing lamps – such as those featuring bright colours or cute animal shapes – make people smile, introducing a pleasant contrast into elegant homes. It’s not just children who are enchanted by the cheerful colour palette used in the Dolly lamp range from Bsweden Belysningsbolaget , for example – and the extravagant lighting solutions from Seletti are very popular across all generations, too.
