Whether you’re looking to spruce up your home decor with some funky and modern lamps or get ahead of the latest trends in home lighting, As we journey into 2023, there is no shortage of stylish and sophisticated lighting solutions. From lamps that you can customize with an app to alarm clocks that wake you peacefully with a simulated sunrise effect, whatever your taste may be, there's something for everyone!
Here are some emerging trends in lamps and lighting:
LIGHTING IS GETTING SMARTER
We've all heard a lot about A.I. and the Internet of Things, but you might not have realized how much this technology is changing home lighting.
While smart bulbs and lamps have been around for a few years now, 2023 is seeing an upsurge in light fixtures integrated with advanced tech.
Here are a couple of the smartest lights hitting the shops this year.
LIGHTS THAT CHARGE YOUR IPHONE
The CES show in Las Vegas gave us a glimpse of what is coming.
One of the most exciting innovations is track lighting which can charge your mobile devices remotely. This is known as Over-the-Air Wireless Charging, which means you don't need wires, and you're not forced to place your phone on a charging pad.
Their wireless power transmitter is designed specifically for easy mounting on track lights at home and in the office. It can be connected with a click to any standard power track and can then wirelessly power devices without the hassle of running wires.
Finally, the days of looking for your iPhone charger cable are over.
Philips has been at the forefront of smart bulbs for many years, and 2023 is no exception. Philips' range of floor lamps is set to be the go-to choice for those searching for a truly immersive lighting experience.
The Philips Signe gradient lamps are equipped with multiple LEDs that create a fantastic range of colors, from daylight and sunset hues to greens and purples — perfect for setting the mood.
You'll be able to control the lamps with your voice and even set lights that replicate a sunrise. The lamps can also be linked to other smart home devices, like Amazon's Alexa or Google Home, for top-notch convenience.
GO BIG OR GO HOME
Away from technological advancements, oversized pendant lamps are taking over the lighting scene.
These lights make a bold statement in any room, and they are becoming increasingly popular in 2023. They come in various shapes, sizes, and colors, so you can find one that fits your style perfectly.
Wherever you choose to shop, these lamps are sure to be an eye-catching addition to your home!
BUBBLE LIGHT CHANDELIERS
Bubble light chandeliers have been gaining popularity over the past few years, and they are expected to continue to be trendy in 2023. These unique fixtures add a touch of whimsy to any space and provide plenty of illumination.
Those looking to find a bubble Chandelier should check out Etsy for a huge variety of options. You can find lamps made with vintage-style bulbs, colored glass, and even Edison bulbs for a modern take on this classic look.
GEOMETRIC VIBE IS OVER
GLASS IS CLASS
Geometric lamps and lighting fixtures were prominent in the past few years. However, they're now losing their lustre. If you want to stay ahead of the trends, it's best to look for something more unique.
Glass is making a comeback in lighting, with lamps and fixtures that feature intricate glass patterns. These lamps provide plenty of illumination while blending in beautifully with the decor.
The SOLKLINT range (pictured below) from Ikea is affordable and stylish, with lamps, wall lights, pendants, and ceiling lights all in the same range, so you can match your lamps to create a cohesive look in any room.
Looks who's back
It's been a while since fabric light shades were a thing; they had their hay day in the 1970s and 80s. However, they are making a comeback in 2023!
These shades are reversed, so the pattern is on the inside, giving a modern take on fabric lamps. Check out lovefrankie's range of beautiful designs. I love this trend and think it's perfect for a living room or bedroom.
These are just a few of the many lighting trends to look out for in 2023. With so much variety and creativity on offer, you're sure to find something that fits your style and budget perfectly!
Good luck with your lamp-shopping journey, and enjoy creating a beautiful space with the perfect lighting fixtures!
