Predicted trends for 2017 include virtual reality, artificial intelligence and neon clothing; but what about lighting? The lighting industry is constantly changing and adapting to new technology. Let’s explore six of the top trends in 2017 for fixtures and lighting design.

1. Chandeliers in Non-Traditional Rooms

Upon entering a home, you often see a chandelier hanging in the foyer or the dining room. As two of the most popular spaces for chandeliers, you likely haven’t seen them in many other rooms. However, in 2017 it is on-trend to place chandeliers in rooms like the master bedroom, bathroom or kitchen. It adds a little design flair where guests least expect it!

2. Decorative Wall Plates

Colored and patterned wall plates turn an otherwise bland part of your home design into something extraordinary. Legrand adorne® wall plates are stylish, hide the screws and come in vibrant colors like plum, cherry red and turquoise. They’re also easy to install, with simple snap-in assembly for a style transformation in no time!

3. Geometric Shapes

In interior design, geometric shapes will be very popular in 2017. When it comes to lighting, you can bring this trend to life in your home with fixtures that have geometric elements. Whether it’s a pendant with glass triangles or a geometric frame around a bulb, you’ll find plenty of geometric inspiration at our showrooms.

4. Gold Fixtures and Finishes

Although the Pantone Color of the Year is greenery, gold is set to be a popular accent color for lighting fixtures and home décor products. A sleek gold finish on flush mounts outside of your home or an elegant chandelier with gold accents in the entryway will capture the essence of this lighting trend.

5. Unique Floor Lamps

Many homeowners who are looking to save space are turned off by the idea of floor lamps, yet this lighting fixture is making a comeback in 2017. Unique styles are winning designers over, from modern to futuristic designs. Popular floor lamps for the year are sleek and thin, so homeowners no longer have to worry about bulky fixtures.

6. Wall Sconces

In contrast to lamps, wall sconces save floor space and continue to grow in popularity in 2017. Wall sconces throw a decent amount of light when mounted properly, acting as a source of general illumination. These fixtures can also be accent pieces, focusing a more concentrated stream of light on artwork and other wall hangings.
