The geometric designs which are appearing in many light fittings today are becoming increasingly popular and can fit seamlessly into both modern and traditional settings. This trend is easier to implement into a more contemporary environment, however there are also options for those of you with a more established surrounding.

Geometry is of course to do with angles and shapes, and this trend is no different. Angles and shapes are the inspiration behind the geometric trend and it is displayed in fittings by the general structure of the light. So shape up your home with this emerging trend!

You have many options you can choose from within this trend. Spotting something in this trend is simple, if you see repeated shapes, patterns or an angular or curved structure then it’s at home in this category. There are plenty of lights which utilize the geometric trend, this is either by using shapes in the shade or having them clearly defined within the structure. Ranging from ceiling pendants to table lamps, finding something geometric for any home is simple. Let’s take a look at a few options for lighting your home with this trend.

Don’t be afraid of mixing shapes, they all come under the same trend and pair up well. It’s worth noting that bold shapes can come in bold colours, so deciding how stand out you want to make it is up to you.  Accompany your ceiling light with some geometric shaped wall lights and or a table or floor lamp to complete the look. You could team this with geometric patterned wall paper or bed sheets, the options are vast with this trend offering many combinations.

For a quick geometric make over in the home consider the use of non electric shades to use on existing suspensions, for example the Needle is a great option for this. There are also low cost single pendants which are great for a geometric home make over, such as the Geometric.

On the subject of hotels this theme is perfect for not only the home but also for contract lighting in restaurants and hotels. Larger lights in this theme are ideal for long drop stairwells and hotel foyers, the gyroscope design Orb is a great option for hotels with a slightly more traditional decor whilst fittings such as the Hotel would be more suited to the contemporary style.
