Some things never go out of fashion, and things aren’t set to change much in 2022, with Scandi chic, retro flair and French cottage style set to have another big year. Asian design is set to return in a big way. And with climate change a hot topic right now, creations made locally from sustainable materials will make an impact too.
If that wasn’t enough, 2022 is set to see lighting designs that turn lamps from functional objects into works of art.
Lights made from renewable materials
Shining a light on sustainability
Lamps with energy-saving LEDs, made from renewable, recyclable and environmentally friendly raw materials are set to be the biggest lighting trend in 2022 as the push towards sustainable products grows. This means that 2022 is set to be a big year for manufacturers that produce in the country of sale and place great value on traditional craftsmanship and short transport routes.
In 2022, we’ll once again be illuminating our homes with elegant, French cottage-style lighting. This means that those who like stylish and cosy interiors will have the pick of the latest in French lighting chic. The fabric shade will make a significant return, too, most notably in warm, earthy hues of beige, brown, and eggshell.
This theatrical lighting trend is perfect for those looking to express their personality through light. The designers of these creations have gone all out to incorporate artistic-sculpture-like pieces that are a major talking point during the day. And when switched on in the evening, the play of light that dances across the room is simply exquisite.
Large rooms are difficult to light, but 2022 will aid those struggling to fill the grandest rooms with sufficient light. Heavyweight designs that incorporate paper-like, translucent materials or sinuous struts will not only look like a work of art; they’ll also help to brighten even the darkest of stately rooms.
Mixing materials is also back in 2022, with marble set to be huge. While acrylics, opal glass, metal, steel, oak or textiles that combine into one light creation will continue to add variety. Next year, you’ll also see the results of designers’ imaginations running wild while you reap the benefits with an embarrassment of rich, mixed-material lighting designs to choose from.
With lights made of bamboo, wood and Japanese paper, adding an Asian feel to your interior will never be easier. Designs that look like chopsticks will bring a Chinese ambience to your home while bamboo and paper creations will add a harmoniously beautiful and serene light.
