Hottest Lighting Trends For 2018 January 21, 2018 – Posted in: Lighting Information

Although lighting isn’t as fast paced as tech or similar products, we’ve seen some interesting trends “creep up” in the past year that are sure to set a precedent for the year ahead. These trends are based on inquiries from interior designers to our hospitality department, ecommerce sales through our channels, and interest gauged by online traffic. In this overview, we will focus mostly on European and North American trends.

Linear Lighting

In the past 6 months or so, we’ve seen a sharp increase in our linear lighting styles. Whether it’s office specific or residential, the models that have clean cut lines and sharp edges have risen between 50-70% in sales. Many of our interior designers have also opted to using recessed versions of these lights for upcoming projects in 2018.

Along the same lines as the previous category, people are looking for lean and clean lights that fit just about any room (unless you’re designing for a flying saucer). Many “blocky” or rectangle like fixture have risen in popularity and much of our customer preferences show sharp increases in popularity.
