Each new year brings new lighting trends to discover. Lighting plays a vital role in the way people experience and understand architecture. Whether buildings and structures are lit naturally or artificially, lighting is the medium that allows us to see and appreciate the beauty in the buildings around us. These lighting trends are perfect for realizing modern spaces in 2020 and beyond.
Geometric lighting fixtures add a visual spunk to interior design. Spheres, orbs, and other round silhouettes have always been popular. Now, shapes like squares, hexagons, and diamonds are joining the spotlight. Geometric shapes pair perfectly with floor and backsplash tile designs and furniture inlaid with geometric elements. Adding a table or floor lamps with the same geometric design will help create a cohesive look.
Our NECTO pendant light captures the essence of modern styles in geometry. NECTO is an array of angles and shapes, with a net-like exterior finished in relic gold. Inside encases a white opal globe, and black accents help to create this dramatic finish.
Nature and sustainability are becoming more popular in architectural design, such as lights made out of organic, environmentally friendly materials. Open weave shades or wicker encasing pendant lights are especially popular. Both genuine and faux stone, along with ethically sourced wood, is a great way to create, serene, and calm interiors. Organically textured glass is often used as an accent on these natural fixtures and helps create dimension.

Open floor plan designs leave lots of room for statement pieces. For open spaces, oversized fixtures are a great fit. Often the bigger, the better! Picking out two or three large pendants to hang over gathering areas such as a lobby, meeting room, or dining room, will be sure to make a statement. Large chandeliers and ceiling fans can also help separate spaces.
Black finishes and accents are at the top of the trend charts, especially in kitchens and bathrooms, where lighting with black finishes can accentuate dark cabinets. When used alone, black is a chic neutral, but when paired with gold or copper, it can create a bold presence.
Silver finishes are also gaining popularity. When used subtly, silver can create elegance. Silver can also be added to chandeliers to give off a modern lighting style.
Brass has also made a comeback but in a less shiny, more natural and rustic finish.
Industrial lighting has become more refined and elegant, making it ideal for modern spaces. Metal frames are made thinner and give a more sophisticated look. Often, industrial revolution inspired pulleys are incorporated into fixtures to preserve that industrial feel. Finishes may be polished and distressed wood is intermingled with metal to create a modern feel.
