Every space needs lighting, whether it’s an apartment, a house or uni accommodation, but don’t leave it as an afterthought.
Co-owner of Nottingham Lighting Centre, Nicola O’Neill said: “Traditional conventions of what type of lighting fitting should go in what area have largely gone, and customers are making more emotional decisions combining both design and practicality.”
Nottingham Lighting Centre is an independent, husband and wife owned showroom that was established in 2012 and have a wealth of knowledge on lighting and interior design.
With clever placement, and standout pieces, a statement lamp can elevate your interiors and transform a space into somewhere you recognise as home.
A statement lamp is a light fixture that is eye-catching, bold and unique.
The concept behind statement lamps is about creating a space where people want to spend time whilst also making a statement about who you are and what styles you like.
A statement lamp can not only be a practical light source but also satisfy your creative side when it doubles as an art piece.
Combining the need for practical light and creative art also minimises the need for excess clutter – having one piece that offers both light and art to a space means the need for less items.
As the statement lamp trend grows, people are moving away from traditional lamps of canvas and embracing new materials like stained glass and ceramic.
Another reason to invest in your own statement lamp is to help create a cosy interior space using ambient light.
Using different styles of lamp, you can tailor the amount of light you want in a room, for example in a kitchen or office you would want brighter light so you can see what you are doing.
In comparison, in a bedroom or living room you might prefer dimmer lighting to create ambience and a sense of cosiness.
Alternatively, instead of using a statement lamp as an accent to a room, make it the centerpiece and in rooms with less furniture like hallways or bathrooms, they can be used to give often forgotten rooms their chance to shine.
The trend of statement lamps is one you can expect to see grow in 2023, with interior design and lighting having a growing influence on social media.
If you’ve seen interior design tips on TikTok, you’re certainly not alone, with entire online communities sharing their own spaces and designs.
Statement lamps will soon be a staple in the homes of the trendy, and we’d hate for you to miss out.
