Luxury Interiors Trend: Statement Lighting

Often, when decorating a home, lighting can be overlooked. Surely what brings a room together is the furniture, the colour scheme, the textiles – rather than the lampshade?

It’s understandable that lighting is often an afterthought: for years, it’s been an additional interior extra – something that serves a more practical purpose than a decorative one. However, trends are constantly changing, and suddenly statement, luxurious lighting fixtures are having a moment – and it’s time to embrace this into your home.

Struggling with how to bring illumination and interiors together? We’ve got five fabulous ways below…


Neon Signage

Neon Signs

Edgy, directional and ever so on-trend, neon signs are one of our favourite ways to transform your home with luxe lighting. Exposed wires only add to the effect – hang against white-washed, textured brickwork for downtown Bronx vibes.

Bare Bulbs

Bare Bulbs

Who says you need a lampshade? This season, it’s all about bold, bare bulbs – hang from the ceiling in rows, or screw into lamps and ditch the shade. It doesn’t get more distinctive than that – we particularly love a cluster of bulbs over the kitchen surfaces for a modern, exposed look.

Update Your Shade


Time to throw out that boring, dated lampshade, and invest in something a little more stylish. Oversized, dramatic and  eye-catching, the bigger and bolder the shade, the better; keep the rest of your room minimalist and simplistic to balance the lines of your light fixture.

Lights as Art

Light box

There’s been a surge in decorative light pieces of late, and it’s a trend we’re more than keen to get behind.  Whether you choose a cinematic light-box (a favourite for the Instagram generation), a string of fairy lights or a stand-alone sign, treat your lighting as a piece of art in itself.

Stripped Back

Stripped Back

Channel your inner Scandinavian with stripped-back, minimal fixtures: we’re talking thin metal, simple bulbs and an almost clinical, stark look. Juxtapose your stripped back lights against plush furnishings, or continue the trend with scrubbed walls and wooden floors.
