Much like installed lighting fixtures, table and floor lamps have seen a revival of functionality combined with more dramatic designs. While LEDs and energy-efficient bulbs brighten spaces, lamps add to the charm and mood of the room. Consumers are looking for pieces that convey renewed optimism and elegance. Some trends in lighting for 2016 are:
- Chrome, gold and brass. Gold and brass lamps aren’t the same shiny finish that they were in the 1980s, but rather are matte or have a worn appearance.
- Clear and lightly-tinted glass, including jewel tones
- Rounded and modern/contemporary designs
- Industrial fixtures remain popular, though the fixtures have taken on a lighter, more refined appearance
