Top Lighting Picks for 2020

With the big brands making their predictions for interiors in 2020 we have chosen to outline our top lighting picks for your home to stay on trend in the new year.

The Return of Terrazzo

Traditionally Terrazzo was used for floors and in areas of high wear due to its ease to maintain and ability to resist humidity. Recently the material has made a comeback in the world of interiors and looks as if it will continue into 2020. In its new versions, Terrazzo’s personality and strength has been applied to a variety of surfaces and transformed into a vast range of interior products. 

Top Pick: To keep on trend we have chosen this Bloomingville pendant light from Amara. This simple but contemporary pendant light would look great as a set above any kitchen island.

Alternatively, why not try the Terrazzo Jesmonite table lamps?

Health and Wellbeing

As the world continues to become more health conscious, our work and home environments are being designed to incorporate items which enhance our wellbeing. Natural materials are being used more in interiors to give a sense of going back to nature. 

Top Pick: Our top pick combines our need for indoor nature and lighting to create this modern Bloomingville feature pendant from Amara. This statement piece could be positioned in an entrance hall to add interest and texture.

Pantone Colour Trends

The Pantone colour institute have released 72 colours in eight colour palettes that offer designers an ‘unusual and original approach’ to home decor and interiors for 2020. Pantone predicts this new era will reinforce the notion that muted and vibrant tones can co exist.

Top Pick: Muuto manufacture the ‘unfold’ pendant light in a soft silicon rubber material in a variety of 15 colours. Whether you are looking for a neutral or bold and bright colour Muuto have it covered.

Warmth and Texture

To bring in the new year your surroundings will benefit from a warm, cosy and comfortable atmosphere. By incorporating more textures to your interiors you can easily achieve this. 

Top Pick: We love these floor standing lamps designed by Tom Dixon Studios. The depth of the felt combined with its soft organic shape adds a warmth to any space. When used in multiples it has the dual functionality of illumination and sound absorption.

Sustainable Design

Sustainable design is hotter than ever before with many affected by the 2019 Netflix documentary ‘Our Planet’. LED bulbs are one of the most promising and affordable technologies to help reverse climate change and where better to start the swap than at home. Remember, you don’t have to choose between the aesthetics and eco friendly design of an LED light fitting and our top pick is proof of this.

Top Pick: The Shadow LED floor lamp has undisputed wow factor, not only will this create a frame shaped shadow of light but it will become the featured item of any space.

(RRP £175 from habitat.co.uk)

Natural World

Vezzini & Chen have taken inspiration from oceanic coral to make these hand blown and scored lamps from Parisian Porcelain. The light radiates through the material beautifully. It is a simple piece that would work for a modern aesthetic. 

Top Pick: Diploria Sphere Table Lamp. Materials made from sustainably sourced ash, oak and walnut with beige porcelain. Width 190mm x Height 190mm.

(RRP £325 From Heals)

Keep it Sophisticated

When it comes to chandeliers if you are more of a traditionalist you needn’t worry. Modern tweaks to a well loved design now allows you to retain the elegance of a chandelier with an added touch of industrial refinement. 

Top Pick: Three layers of delicate chain strands and hand crafted metal work form the shape of this large pendant light available in a variety of sizes. The chain strands come in Black, silver or copper to suit any decor.

Top Pick: Tom Raffield have reinvented the chandelier and used their signature style of steam bent timber to create this signature show stopping piece ‘Giant Flock ‘ out of ebony tulip and brass. They also offer a natural timber finish for a more subtle vibe.

(RRP £3,450 From Tom Raffield)
