Lighting Trends 2015: the Wicker Pendant Light July 24 2015, 0 Comments

Cane & rattan pendant lights in fashion

We keep an eye on the lighting trends in 2015 here at Fat Shack Vintage, and judging by its increasing popularity, one of them is the wicker pendant light. With a natural texture and renewed design, it could feel at home in both a classic Hampton beach house style home and a rugged Australian coastal cottage. We have even seen it pop up in Scandinavian and industrial interiors. Whether you’re going for cane or rattan pendant lights, this natural look can bring authentic warmth into any space. Is this a trend for you? Time for a closer look.

 Natural rattan pendant lights

 

These natural, light-coloured rattan pendant lights are reminiscent of sunny days and are perfect for beach-style homes and cottages. Don’t feel like turning your home into a summer cottage? They also go well with more general rustic interiors which include reclaimed wood and other rough, natural materials.

Painted rattan pendant lights

 

Many designers use painted rattan pendant lights in interior design styles such as Scandinavian and industrial. This sleek, oversized type of wicker pendant light creates a certain calm and casual atmosphere while still looking up to date.

Thick rattan & cane pendant light

As these two restaurants show, old-style rattan and cane pendant lights don’t look outdated when you put some thought into their placement. They look beautiful hung at various heights in the trees, or grouped together at the centre of a large space.

Dark cane pendant light

 

Cane pendant lights are also available in natural darker colours. This way, they can serve to enrich a palette of natural tones. Alternatively, they could provide more contrast than lightly-coloured versions in a white environment. For example, in the space on the right our natural dark brown wicker light would go perfectly with the vintage side table and mirror to provide counterweight to the all-white interior.

So, the wicker pendant light as one of 2015’s lighting trends: what do you think? Are lightly coloured or painted rattan pendant lights and dark cane pendant lights a good addition to these interiors? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
