It starts again, the dark and cozy season. Slowly but surely we are approaching the beginning of autumn. But what are the cooler months without a pleasant light-filled home? Luminaires may not be missing just now and radiate a great feel-good character.

2. Sustainability: leading by shining example
3. What the unusual shapes are all about
4. Home office: putting the office in the right light
5. Practical battery lights & the fusion of indoor and outdoor
Matte, classic and pastel shades:
The classics among the lights remain. Soft and light, even summery pastel shades are here to stay this year. Especially trendy this fall and winter are matte finishes. Pastel matte lights make the room look soft and light. They do not let the cheerfulness of summer disappear and live out the joyful charisma even in the dark and cold season.
However, in the dark months, not only luminaires in matte pastel shades can captivate, but also the color chrome is back in vogue. Chrome-colored lights make the room look elegant and valuable.
Of course, the classics of the autumn and winter time may not be missing: Muted colors and earth tones are often found again and give a cozy, wintry mood. Indirect light spots in various corners and angles make the home seem especially cozy. Discover more exciting highlights around the topic of lights in this year's lighting special and transform your living room into a real feel-good place.
Trend color orange:
Compared to last year, it can be clearly seen that the trend color orange stretches from summer into fall and winter. Orange lights convey a sunny, warm feeling, which should not be missing especially in the dark season.
But orange lamps not only convey a cozy character, they are also real eye-catchers and give your home a stylish look. Be it the highlight in the living room, hallway or yet on the nightstand. They are everywhere in good hands and let rooms literally shine.
From LED luminaires to sustainable materials
The luminaires from this season not only impress with their often processed long-life LED elements and their energy-saving properties. In most cases, they are also characterized by sustainable, recycled materials. The issue of sustainability is becoming increasingly important to manufacturers, which is why in many places production is being restructured and gradually becoming more environmentally conscious.
From large and abstract eye-catchers to lights in organic shapes.
This year, many new shapes of lights settle in the trend: A pompous, huge ceiling and pendant light is not uncommon this fall and winter. Large lights lend themselves to being a real statement piece in your home. However, these strikingly large lights are not too ostentatious, they are often kept simple, which allows them to blend in well with the room.
Likewise, we find many sculptural and organic shapes again. The trend continues throughout the year. In the summer we found a lot of sculptural vases and decorative objects, for the autumn and winter season the organic shapes are reflected in luminaire form. Thus, various decorative elements can be perfectly combined with the new lamps.
Finding the right lamp for mobile working and home office is quite easy this year. There are a variety of new colorful as well as plain or even unusual desk lamps, so there is a suitable desk lamp for every home office and every taste.
Since last year, the home office theme has become more and more deeply integrated into our homes. Design also your home office to an absolute feel-good place with a suitable luminaire. Thus, the positive appearance and room design can affect their well-being and you start well into the dark season.
Battery lights are not only a great highlight on the balcony or in the garden in summer. They can be super placed in the house or apartment due to their flexibility and portable operation. Especially practical is that you can take them anywhere and they emit a pleasant warm light. Thus, the battery lights are used in every season. Universal use is the Piton LED battery lamp from Muuto :
Tom Chung, designer of Muuto says: My idea for Piton came from a desire to design a rechargeable, portable lamp that could be adapted in many ways and work in different environments. I wanted the design to fulfill the basic functions of a flashlight: Provide safety and warmth while clearly illuminating the field of view. In short, the Piton portable lamp is designed to encourage customers to explore their surroundings.
In conclusion, there are no limits to the lights this year. From pastel, matte finishes to highlights, such as orange luminaire. But also muted colors and true classics can be found again.
In addition, this fall and winter we find many organic and sculptural shapes again, which can be ideally combined with the matching vases.
