Check out our latest column in BAR Magazine where Brand Manager, Sophia, discusses the latest trends in lighting design.
Eco Chic just got cooler!
Every designer worth his or her salt has had a huge interest in one of the biggest lighting trends of our era – old, vintage incandescent light bulbs. The only drawback is the old, outdated lighting technology i.e. incandescent lamps which don’t last very long, and are hugely energy-hungry. These retro-style bulbs can be seen in the hottest bars, restaurants, cafés and hotels. Now you can recreate the nostalgia of a bygone era – the brass, the hand-finished glass and the beautiful warm glow – with the added efficiency of LED. Vintage filament LED bulbs offering ten times the lifespan and energy savings are available from Bright Goods.
The Writing on the Wall linj
A trend that may never go out of style – using words to project and enhance the ambiance of any area. Whether you go for framed word art, popular quotes and inspirational sayings or create your own bespoke typography-based statements, stamp your originality on your walls. Creations in neon look like the go-to piece, because they are so eye-catching and fit in well with the retro vibe – custom neon is the way to go.
Let There Be Light
There is nothing that stands out more when you walk into a room, than a funky, imposing and unique looking light fixture. Make it a talking point, think objects d’art – a resemblance to modern sculptures that can also create beautiful shadows that reflect off the walls and ceiling when turned on.
