As the days get shorter and the nights draw in, the lighting inside your home becomes a vital element of home decor. Whether it's a pendant light to illuminate your dinner table or a cosy lamp to cast a spotlight on the pages of a good book - the right lighting is crucial.
We've taken a look at the latest lighting trends for 2019, so whether you're looking for an opulent focal point for the room or a simple and functional piece - these lighting options will attract attention and have you looking forward to the dark, cosy winter evenings.
The bigger the better
With ceilings gaining more prominence in the world of interior design - painted colours and plenty of wallpaper - you're going to need larger than life lighting to match! Install some large pendant lamps - like the Brooklyn Extra Large Pendant Light from The White Company - over the dinner table to showcase the food you're serving up.
Coinciding with industrial trends throughout the home, lamps and ceiling lights are moving away from traditional materials and using the likes of cork, concrete and wood to great effect. Standing alone these pieces can look cold and drab, but cleverly combined they become a stylistic device; a fashion accessory. If both function and style is what you're after, look no further than the Bamboo Tripod Floor Light from LightStore. Featuring natural bamboo wood legs and a grey metal shade with a copper inner, this floor lamp is a fantastic nod to the industrial trend.
Where art and practicality merge, opulent centre pieces provide artistic flair whilst serving a vital purpose. For an injection of tropical glamour, this Silver And Gold Pineapple Lamp from Graham & Green is a must have this season if you're looking for a reminder of the warm summer months.
Barely there nudes
The nude look is making a comeback! Think peach, beige and cappuccino for your colour palette and try leaving lighting bare - making use of stand out, vintage bulbs instead of excessive fixtures and shades. For a small pop of colour, pair your naked bulbs with brass, copper or zinc like the Bulbus Pendant Light in Clear Glass from Pooky.
