Trend Alert: Exposed Bulb Urban Lighting Fixtures
Homeowners and interior designers continue to fall for the beauty of the bare bulb. For the past couple of years, lighting fixtures with exposed bulbs have become increasingly popular. As we have discussed in a previous post on top lighting trends for 2012, steampunk and industrial style fixtures (many of which feature exposed bulbs) are predicted to prevail as top trend this year. So what it is about these bare bulb fixtures that makes them so appealing?
While neutral pallets, clean lines and smooth surfaces are timeless, current trends in interior design are pointing towards more layered looks that combine different influences and styles. These types of interiors allow for more personalization, and – as we all know – lighting is the easiest way to incorporate a new element into interiors. Industrial fixtures, therefore, have become a common way to add an eclectic urban touch to traditional, rustic or contemporary interiors.
To show you the beautiful impact bare bulb industrial style lighting can have on various interior designs, here are a few beautiful design examples we gathered from the popular design archive, Houzz.
