The warehouse inspired look with lighting that is basic, with hard angles and boxy frames paired with a warm colored glow that gives a feeling of simplicity with a softness as well. This trend has been a part of home design for while, ever since the look of an exposed brick wall came into vogue, and it is continuing to stay popular in the public eye.
- Use of metals: Whether in fixtures or in lamps, the use of metal in ways is the latest trend in a modern look for home lighting. Indeed, take for example, the recent design of the pendant chandelier. This pendant chandelier makes use of spokes of metal that stick out almost like the branches of a tree. Using this metallic look in whatever way feels most useful and relevant to the client has been a big part of this changing design.
- Use of color: Making lighting change color to match the space and mood has also become highly popular. This can be achieved in the form of lamps or through installed lighting fixtures. The use of color can help to create certain ambiance in a space and also allows people to customize their lighting fixtures to best meet their needs.
