Eco-style also touched the lighting design. This trend extends to natural materials from which lamps are made: wood, glass, fabric, bamboo, imitation paper. Practically all forms and interpretations are popular, for example, metal bulbs on a wooden mount, natural stone chandeliers, light compositions made of frosted glass and wood.
The trend can be expressed not only in material, but also in form: chandeliers in the form of branches, floor lamps with graceful leaves, wall lighting with glass in the form of drops.
Example: Moebius lamp. The pendant model has a working front and back surface with built-in LED strip and satisfies the need for lighting from all directions. The structure is made of acrylic and bamboo, a complex shape is obtained in the process of thermal bending.
Minimalism, order and rational use of space also affected the interior design. At the peak of popularity, clear geometric shapes. Laconic lamps in the form of a ball or cube, compositions in the form of a cone or spiral can be placed in a row or hung in a picturesque manner. Horizontal lighting panels will dilute the design and give it individuality.
Interesting shape, texture, materials – no unnecessary details. Such models are suitable for almost any design.
Basic shades will be win-win: white, black, brown, gray. You can combine this trend with the previous one and choose lamps in the colors of honey, olives, sand, sky, conifers. Bright, accent shades also look great.
Example: The emphasis in a small table lamp is not on visual appeal, but on the lighting control itself. The user can control the light intensity, adjust the upper light beam using a diaphragm, just like on a camera. The light’s simple shape helps focus on pure function.
This trend in interior lighting has persisted for many seasons and is found in the collections of many brands. Ball luminaires can be made of transparent, translucent or even opaque material: depending on the task and area of application.
They are used as night lamps, full-fledged chandeliers, cascading lighting. It is a good idea to install regular round bulbs. This echoes both environmental friendliness and simplicity of forms.
Another trend of recent seasons is glass shades. They can be easily combined with other luminaires.
Chandeliers art objects
If you want to add an eye-catching detail to the interior, a designer chandelier is perfect for this. She can be very active, but if the rest of the space remains discreet, the balance will be observed.
Black is the design trend for the 2023 season. Matte black floor lamps and sconces are best used in monochrome interiors in combination with light shades. A black chandelier will stand out favorably against the background of additional lamps in white, beige or cream shades.
This material and references to it continue to be at the top. It is found in dressing tables, vases, clocks and other decor, in plumbing fixtures and, of course, in lamps. If you want to add relevance and a little luxury to the interior, this is a great choice.
Interspersed brass makes the space warmer and more comfortable. It looks nobler and more interesting than the usual gold, silver and ordinary metal. Also, this trend will look great both in the Empire style and in the Scandinavian style. Brass chandeliers, cast in gold, recall the luxurious life of past generations.
The coverage of 2023 should be varied. Adjustable lighting devices are relevant, which can be directed to the area of the room that currently needs lighting most of all.
In addition, traditional ceiling chandeliers and floor-mounted fixtures are used. They allow zoning and highlighting a particular place in the space of the room. To achieve the latter goal, floor lamps are also actively used.
In modern interiors, 2023 lighting can be organized with halogen lamps. They are mounted in a suspended or suspended ceiling. For the installation of such lighting devices, special metal structures are also widely used. They will look perfect in a loft-style design.
You can combine different types of lamps: chandeliers and floor lamps, pendant lamps and sconces. Completely different combinations are possible. If you place a lot of lighting fixtures around the perimeter of the room, you get an original composition.
Lighting design goes to the next level. Lighting devices that can be controlled according to preferences are in fashion: adjust the brightness, choose a color from muted evening to extremely bright, like in the office. Modern lighting trends 2023 can be provided by LED bulbs that outperform conventional incandescent bulbs and save energy. LED lamps embedded in the false ceiling will fit into the interior of the kitchen or bathroom.
For the interior of a studio apartment, an interesting solution would be zoning lamps, dividing the room into separate zones. These can be floor lamps, floor-mounted lamps, light panels.
Let’s take a closer look at different types of lighting fixtures and trends in their lighting design.
All modern ceiling chandeliers can be divided into two types depending on their design.
- Those that are located directly under the ceiling. They differ in compact size, laconic design – more often they have one large shade or several small ones. Ceiling fixtures don’t give a lot of light, but if the room is small, take a closer look at them.
- Suspended. Most Popular. Pendant lights are attached to the ceiling with a suspension – a cord or string. They have one or more shades. Chandeliers do not belong to technical lighting, but to decorative, design.
- Geometry. One of the hottest trends is geometry without unnecessary details. Chandeliers of different and slightly unusual shapes will perfectly complement even a calm interior.
- Lines. The most minimalistic design. Products made of warm metal and more graphic matte in black and white are relevant.
- Cascade. Especially suitable for large spaces that want to add more lightness.
- Spheres. This is a single ball-shaped shade or whole groups that create compositions of lines and geometric shapes. Models with balls are relevant in modern and minimalist designs, as well as in neoclassicism with a bias towards a more modern style. Both one minimalistic ball and a scattering of transparent glass spheres look advantageous.
- Rings. The ring can be one or more, intersecting with each other. Any execution is actual: both metallic cold color, and decorated with glass and crystals.
- Retro. Lamps in the style of the 50s and 70s are at the peak of their popularity. Classic-style chandeliers with a lot of plastic and glass decorations are much less common in trendy interiors.
This type of luminaire is more of a decorative function. They create soft diffused light, which is relevant for transition zones and rooms where a relaxed atmosphere is desired. Wall lighting perfectly emphasizes the relief and texture of the walls.
Trends: brass, especially on pure white, accent or raw wall; simple or natural forms: square, drop, sun, leaf and others; basic luminaires with controlled tilt angle and directional light.
An alternative to wall lighting would be conventional lighting. It will allow you to save money and avoid additional accents in the interior.
One of the favorite types of lighting among designers, it completes the interior and adds coziness. Recently, they have become independent and bright elements in space.
If you are not ready to turn a floor lamp into an art object like a chandelier, pay attention to laconic forms in basic colors or brass. A floor lamp made of fabric of natural colors, straw will decorate the interior and make a reference to environmental friendliness.
Table lamp trends overlap with other types of lighting: strict geometric shapes; white, black or brass color; a reference to the 50-70s; spherical shape. Such lamps will be combined with any interior style.
This type of lighting is gradually losing its position. More relevant now is classic light.
The advantages of LED lighting include: maximum brightness immediately after switching on, lower power consumption, heating of the elements does not exceed 40 ° C, service life: about 100,000 hours.
