No time to dig through interior design mags to discover what’s hot and what’s not? No problem – here’s our fast-fire top-three countdown of the trendiest patterned lampshades for 2018 (direct from our industry insiders).
Walk on the Wild Side, with Animal Print
Yup, the hottest high street fashion has transcended into the realm of lighting. Except here there’s no need to stick purely to zebra print, as giraffes, tigers and cheetahs all want in when it comes to your living space.
Go Ultra-on-Trend, with Ultra-Violet
It’s the pantone colour of the year – a deep, dramatic version of violet. Reflecting times of change and a need for innovation, inventiveness and imagination, you can pick a violet shade, or be a little bit more flexible and choose a purple pattern.
Bring the Outdoors In, with Nature-based Lampshades
Nature, birds and wildlife have been hot property for some time now in the on trend home, and this style direction shows no sign of slowing down just yet.
From leafs to florals, minimalistic bird prints to intricate peacock feathers, this final addition to our countdown is as diverse as it is a breath of fresh air.
With that, our top three countdown is all wrapped up. But if you’re just not feeling the pattered direction for your lighting, you may want to consider a mix and match lampshade – which seems to fit perfectly into any environment – from contemporary, to traditional, a magnolia lounge, or a wallpapered top-to-bottom living room.
