Home decor trends
For this year, the trend in home furnishings and lighting sees precious metals, glass and color as protagonists. Among the trendy furnishing styles we find the minimal style, always very appreciated. But in reality there is no real predominant style, rather a mix of styles and fashions. The classic style meets the modern to extend towards innovative and contemporary design solutions. Exotic styles such as Arabic and ethnic also emerge. Much attention is also aimed to environment and innovation: more and more brands are proposing LED lamps that can be managed via smart devices and app or sound-absorbing lamps. The Light Shopping catalog is always very updated with the latest news, where to find ideas and products to renovate the lighting of your home.
Lighting: the new trends
One of the lighting trends started in 2018 is the double gold / black or gold / white finish lamps. Examples are the modern chandeliers proposed by Faro Barcelona: Muse, Slim and Pam. This type of lamps with modern lines emphasizes the light thanks to the bright reflections of the inside part in gold and blend well with various styles of furniture. We are also witnessing the great return of the glass proposed, which is no longer uniquely transparent or white, but in the chrome, rose gold or copper versions. New finishes obtained through the metallization treatment that makes the glass shiny and reflective like metal. But the real protagonist is color. More and more lamps are available with bright and intense colors. For example Foscarini proposes the colored lamps Birdie, Le Soleil, Binic and Bit where strong and intense shades like the electric blue, the bright red, the strong orange give an extra touch of movement and vivacity to any interior.
Smart lighting: increasingly technological and sustainable
In addition to the highly evolved and original design, particular attention is aimed to environmental sustainability and the search for human well-being. We will see the number of luminaires multiplied with integrated light control functions that can be managed via smartphone. For example, through an App with intuitive interface, Artemide allows the management of the lamps in your apartment, allowing you to change the light in real time, to use preset scenarios, but also to create new ones. All the settings are customizable and programmable according to your needs to have complete control of the light intensity, color, switching on and off of the domestic light. Therefore innovative products, not only in the refined aesthetics, but also in functionality.
Sound absorbing lamps are another news introduced this year. Artemide's Silent Field is an example of a design lamp that combines incredible acoustic comfort with high-performance lighting. With a minimalist design, this large flat disk absorbs sounds and reduces their reverberation, creating an intimate and protected environment. Silent Field is composed of an extra flat PET acoustic panel covered with a sound-absorbing elastic fabric and its geometry ensures a wide spectrum of sound absorption of the reverberating frequencies of the human voice. The honeycomb surface produces a break on the sound wave: the cavities capture the sounds, which are absorbed, maximizing the acoustics of the environment.
Finally, LED lighting that combines low consumption with modern and contemporary lines, that are well suited to both domestic and professional design environments. The LED spotlights for example are versatile and can be perfectly integrated in all environments, they do not present any technical limitation. On the contrary, they boast countless new and different design possibilities. All these news can be found in our lamps catalog. Many products have innovative features described here.
