Lighting trend: FIRED EARTHENWARE
Light fittings and lamps featuring fired, baked, ceramic, china and earthenware elements. The trend for earthenware elements in the home has coincided with our basic need to be connected with the earth and natural materials. This look shows off the surface details and tactile nature of ceramic. Biscuit baked colours like stone, terracotta, bone china white all sit at the fore of the look. The look is raw rather than painted pots natural colour ways that sit nicely with other colours.
Natural colours, natural materials tactile earthenware light fixtures. Lots of table lamps and ceiling pendants with natural elements china and ceramics are strongly represented in this section along with earthenware lamps with pottery lamp bases. The light fixtures and fittings have a relaxed less formal feel which really does set the aesthetic style of a room, a welcoming informal look which will work well in most rooms of the home yet is especially suited to kitchens, living rooms, dining and bedrooms.
Light does not easily pass through solid objects so extensively earthenware is used in table lamps. When used in ceiling lights the illumination or direction of the light is throw forwards, with the exception of china ceiling lights which are semi translucent which does give a soft subtle warm light effect.
