2. Opulent Design Lighting: Products Steeped in History

In the upcoming season, retro style is still very much in vogue. However, the new lights get an elegant and opulent twist. Brands like Artemide, Established & Sons and Gubi surprise us with decorative lighting in retro design. With their elegant design, the products remind us of opulent palaces and at the same time build a bridge to the modern world through the use of state-of-the-art technologies. The result is a completely new, almost picturesque character that makes lamps the most important decor element in every room. Made of fine glass and with loving details. These lights look like little jewels and collectibles from times gone by.

3. Futuristic Extravaganca: Artistic Lighting

There is hardly a season that offers so many and at the same time contrasting lighting trends like the winter of 2018/2019. In addition to opulent lights in retro style, many manufacturers also offer us futuristic and artistic designs reminiscent of sculptures. The rechargeable light Phare by Menu is - with its exceptionally angled shape and cylindrical base - an extravagant and imaginative decoration. Art and practical furniture merge in this product.

4. Playful Romaticism: Lights for a Cozy Atmosphere

When it gets colder and colder outside, it can not be cozy enough inside. In addition to soft home textiles and romantic candles, playful lights provide the necessary coziness. The popular designs of Umage prove that.

5. Metallic Brilliance: the Popular Metallic Look

Whether gold, brass or chrome - lighting in a metallic look casts a spell over us with their brilliance and can be combined with any style in a variety of ways. If you prefer it cool and simple, choose chrome. In contrast, copper, gold and brass convey an impression of heat. With their shimmering reflections, the lights set all the extraordinary and modern accents, without being too intrusive.
