Best Lighting Trends of 2021

When you are looking for lighting fixtures for your home, it is important to stay on trend. For this very reason, with each changing year, it's important to stay on top of lighting trends. Given below are a few lighting trends for the year 2021.

  •  Light as Art

 While interior design has always valued decor over lighting, newer trends involve lighting being the focal point of your home interiors. Therefore, your design basically revolves around lighting. Moreover, sculptural table and floor lamps as well as artful chandeliers or pendants act as both statement art pieces as well as illumination points. Some examples are the Facile White Floor Lamp, Rattan Table Lamp and 5 Spider Concrete Light Chandelier by By Living. 

  • Combination of Materials

 In today’s day and age, combining materials to form extravagant lighting has become quite the trend. This usually involves combining timber/ concrete with metal or using a combination of different metals. Such combinations are the perfect mix of homeliness and striking extravagance. By Living provides Ashwood 3 White Pendant light which is a combination of timber and metal. They have many more varieties that mix terrazzo and metal or concrete and metal. 

  • Eco Ceiling Lights

The lines between the environment and interiors is blurring with biophilia becoming an interior trend. Lighting combines materials like dome cork, rattan, concrete, timber and more. Some examples would be Dome Cork Pendant Light by By Living. 

  • Office Table Lamps

Since the pandemic, homes have been converted into offices. Hence, setting up lights that make your home suitable to work in is important. One thing that makes your office room look elegant and professional is a sleek table lamp. This is functional as well as charming. By Living helps embrace the work from home trend with their Leather Timber Table Lamp. 

  • Illuminate with Colour

Now that the world is staying indoors, you want your home to be your sanctuary. Therefore, there is a major need for some colour flash inside your house to make it feel more lively. Colourful and patterned lighting fixtures are thereby trending today. If you have monochromatic interiors, you can add some glamorous contrast by installing bright table lamps, wall lights or chandeliers. Woo-mite Terrazzo Pendant Lights by By Living are available in a variety of shades. 

  • Go Black 

Black is the new metallic. It is one of the most trending colours of 2021. In fact, matte black lighting fixtures stand out and give your interiors a subtle dramatic flair as well as a modern look. Black is bold and cutting edge, unlike any other colour in the market. This is why it gives you extra points to have lighting fixtures that contrast shiny metals which have become quite regular. By Living provides a replica of 3-Lindsey Bubble Chandelier in all black. This is classy and a super fashionable addition to your home. 

  • More Brass 

Polished and brushed brass has warmer tones than other metals. In addition, not only does it provide a shiny effect but also a matte finish. This is why it looks charming when paired with natural materials like wood and manmade materials like concrete. It can give out an understated elegance or a more contemporary look depending on the material it is paired with. Due to its versatility and sophistication, brass is set to be the go-to metal for lighting fixtures in 2021. 

  • Rustic Flair 

As natural elements are becoming more and more trendy, rustic lighting that uses ropes, wood and other natural materials is on top of every interior decorator’s list.  Lights with exposed bulbs on ropes or wrapped over wooden slabs bring a distinct flair to your otherwise modern interiors. These rustic lights get nature inside your home at a time where it’s otherwise difficult to connect with it. By Living’s Rope Pendant Light Tassel is one such pendant light in Australia. 

  • Geometric Pendants 

2021 is big on geometric shapes and patterns. These act as centrepieces in your interiors. They have a modern charm like none other. Furthermore, they also exude an air of elegance and modern sophistication. Hexagonal patterns, octagonal pendants and such are some geometric shapes that are often the go-to. By Living has several options when it comes to geometric pendant lighting online.
