A few years ago, we obsessed over sputnik chandeliers. Then, we were inspired by FrenchВ lighting designers, from Serge Mouille to Jean ProuvГ©. And let's not forget the brass globes that graced every interior in recent years. Lighting trends may come and go, but they always return-remember when EdisonВ bulbs and industrial lighting were in? These were also a hot commodity around the turn of the last century.
We like to think of lighting the same way we see handbags: We secretly all want the Mark Cross original, but sometimes, our wallet will only allow a Zara box bag while we save up for the real deal. But the splurge is always a sound investment that will keep its value for decades. So whether you're looking to splurge on high-end lighting or just want to update your home with a few budgetВ finds, we mapped out the hottest lightingВ trends for 2018. Trust us-you're about to see these everywhere.
