5 Interior Lighting Trends That Continue to Shine Bright


Lighting can open up a space and set the mood for your style and design, it should be considered as an essential step in the interior design of every home! A great way to add a touch of personality to a space, lighting should be practical and functional as well as complimentary to the overall design aesthetic. Just like the fashion industry lighting trends come and go, but there are some trends that never seem to disappear. At Lighting Lighting Lighting, we strive to bring you the best of the best and are always on the lookout for what new products to show you next.  If you are wanting to update your interior lights but want to be sure they’ll stand the test of time, let’s have a look 5 lighting trends that continue to stand strong. 

Modern Industrial

Whether it’s for the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen or living area, the industrial trend is versatile and can seamlessly integrate into homes of many different styles. From modern and contemporary to heritage and traditional, ‘Industrial’ is hot in the field of interior design and is a fun trend that continues to evolve.


From rich, sleek metals in timeless blacks and greys, to aged brass, concrete, terrazzo and touches of marble and timber, there’s now a large range of industrial pendant lights suitable for any room in the house. Try using large scale industrial pendant lights as a feature piece and consider using exposed bulbs with visible filaments to enhance the industrial look.

Luxury Metallics

Perfectly suited to a variety of current interior design trends from Art Deco, Mid Century Modern and Urban Contemporary, metallic finishes work well with many styles and continue to be one of the top trends for 2019. Chrome elegantly provides a fresh and clean feel, brass and gold offer a high level of sophistication and copper adds flair and personality to any room. Light fixtures in a metallic finish add richness and warmth to a space and are a simple way to add a touch of luxury to your interior. 

Bold Black

Black is back…although it never really left, and we don’t think it ever will. Bold, classic and versatile, nothing creates drama better than black and when paired with lighter tones, creates contrast in a space. Black commands attention and is excellent for guiding the eye around a room so it’s easy to see why it continues to be a huge trend not only in lighting, but in interior design in general. Whether it’s a matte or gloss finish, black pendant lights, wall lights, downlights or even table or floor lamps, black light fixtures are the perfect addition for modern, minimalist interiors as well as elegant, timeless traditional homes. 

Hamptons Style

This trend continues to evolve and is certainly going nowhere in a hurry. Bright, light, fresh and airy with a coastal vibe that evokes a sense of relaxed casual elegance, the Hamptons trend effortlessly caters to the Australian lifestyle. Not just suited to coastal homes, inner-city and country houses are also incorporating textures like rattan, bamboo and wicker as well as whites, neutrals, soft grey tones with pops of duck egg blue and mint green. Think pendant lights in traditional shapes and timeless materials such as glass, chrome and brass, alongside wall lights and large scale table lamps with crisp linen shades to create a soft lighting effect.


No other trend seems to have the staying power of Scandi. With a focus on clean, simple lines, minimalism, and functionality without sacrificing beauty, Scandi style blends into so many Australian homes with ease. With an emphasis on natural materials and bringing the outdoors in, pale timber pendant lights, white walls, soft grey tones and muted hues are all signature Scandi elements.
