1. BOLD BRASS

Providing a modern take on metal, warmer tones of brushed and polished brass will start to come through more regularly. Elegant yet subtle, the high shine or matt finishes pair perfectly with natural materials including marble and wood for a refined feel.

4. HAND-BLOWN GLASS

‘The trend for uniqueness is set to thrive in the year ahead as homeowners and designers seek to shock. From hand-blown glass with contrasting materials, to bold eye-catching accessories it’s all about being distinctive,’ says Ian Cameron, Creative Director of Cameron Design House.

Elevating simple forms into sculptural pieces, hand-blown glass makes up the core structure of the impressive Helmi and Kuulus chandeliers. Their bubble-like appearance, with a deep warming glow creates impact upon entry, for a truly awe-inspiring, show-shopping piece.

5. ORGANIC FORM

‘Organic forms in nature continue to grow in popularity for 2020. Exploration of the natural world, combined with innovation in design encourages the development of abstract shapes and simplified forms,’ says Ian Cameron, Creative Director of Cameron Design House.

From the continuous linear style of the Inari chandelier created from the organic exploration of light fluidity, to the delicate pollen inspired frame of the Kasvaa pendant light, nature continues to influence design with increasing technological advancements.

6. CLASSIC BLUE

The trend for Classic Blue replaces Living Coral for 2020. A prominent shade in the home, this moody colour will be seen on walls, furnishings and stand-out items, providing the perfect hue for statement pieces to shine in. Bold and brilliant, the ever-popular Haara chandelier seen below is coated in this opulent shade. Each piece from the collection is available in any choice of colour for a truly bespoke chandelier tailored to the individual.
