Top Lighting Trends for 2024

Looking to brighten your home with new lighting? Here are the latest lighting trends brightening homes in 2024

Perfect lighting in your home can make or break your styling. Get it right and will boost your mood, complement your design aethetic and  and make a world of difference to both the look and feel of your home. Here are some of our favourite trends for 2024.

Modern Meets Traditional

We love a light that takes a classic design but is renewed with a modern spin. Looks for lights that have brass or black finishes and can make a statement over in your hallways or over a dining table. We love this Eamon 6 light pendant. The perfect mix of new and old.




Marble remains big this year as the deco/luxe aesthetic continues. Whether it’s used in the base, as part of a pendant light, or as an accent, marble is a great way to tie your room together – especially if you’ve used it as a surface elsewhere in the room. Marble works well when tied with velvet lounges for that extra opulent feel.

Natural textures remain a big design trend in 2022, especially in coastal areas aiming for a more ‘relaxed,’ beachy interior. Rattan and raffia remain the material of choice, but woven basket-style shades are also popular, and look great when paired with a simple, white interior and used with other baskets in the room.

Lighting as art

Looking to make a statement? Large architectural statement lights – especially chandelier styles – may be just what you’re looking for. If you’re working with a new build, or adding an ultra-modern extension, think about chatting to your architect to see what they have in mind – good statement lighting can often be the missing piece of the puzzle when it comes to fitting out your new space.

Bubbles and bulbs

The sixties saw them big and bold, hanging as pendants in formal lounges. The nineties saw them used in period renovations. Now circular lighting is having its moment again, except this time it’s altogether more subtle. Grouped together, used as singular sconces, or as dainty side-table lights, they’re a great, versatile lighting option.

Brushed copper remains a big presence in our homes, with metallic accents still a big trend. Metallic floor lights are a particularly good way to make a statement and work well in warehouse-style interiors. Used in lamp bases, metallics are also a great way to tie a formal, elegant space together, lending a sense of luxe to the room.

Alabaster detail

This natural stone material is popping up a lot at the moment. First used extensively during the turn of last century, it's become popular again, adding a soft, translucent glow to rooms. Alabaster lights are particularly lovely when used as an accent in bedrooms or hallways, adding a soft, romantic glow to those spaces.

Glass bases

Glass bases remain a big presence in our homes this year. They’re a great, neutral way to tie a room together, adding a sense of luxury without being too much of a statement. Glass bases for table lights work particularly well when used in luxurious, coastal-style spaces, tying in with natural, textured accents.

Pretty patterns

Dainty, patterned bases and shades are back! When used with a plain, white interior they provide a gorgeous pop of colour and a focal point for a room or side table. Feeling adventurous? Pair them with clashing prints and textures in your soft furnishings for that “maximalism” look.
