Trend Watch: Decorex 2016

October 24th, 2016 in All About Blinds

Hello and welcome to part 3 of our series on trends as seen at the Decorex 2016 show! We’re about half way through of the styles, patterns, materials we’re expecting to see a lot of in the next year or two, and this week’s seems very fitting of the times.
This weekend marks the end of Daylight Saving Hours/ British Summer Time, which means the clocks go back by one hour. Whilst our morning may get a little lighter, our evenings will be getting darker earlier too.

So today, we’re exploring lighting!

There was plenty of it at Decorex Show, and as ever, plenty of inspiration for our own homes. We’re doing away with the traditional pendant shapes, colours and materials and heading into a much trendier time. It’s year of the statement!

Something Quirky


First off, we’re taking a look at the fun yet elegant offerings from Curiousa & Curiousa, whose lights are made of hand blown glass in their Derbyshire studio.

They work with different colours, shapes and lengths, and when you hang multiple together, the result is fantastic!

Just look at these displays from their stall!



We love too how this pendant complements the artistic wallpaper.

The oranges, the rounded shapes, and those darker accents all come together beautifully!

It’s important to think about the colours and shapes of nearby patterns and how these may change the feeling and overall look of your room.

Plus we hope that patterned alcoves with hanging pendants in front become a thing!



Something Modern


If you’re looking for statement lighting, then boy are you looking in the right place! Le Deun are a Parisian company, and as well as designing beautiful lighting, they’re devoted to creating low energy-consumption products.
Just imagine having a console table that’s home to these circles, in varied sizes and finishes… Dreamy, right?
Suppose we ought to wait until a high street designer does their own variation.

Something Magical

It’s hard not be in awe of this next light. It moves! Like tall blades of grass in the wind, there’s something incredibly calming about the Inaho lighting from Tangent.


The light has sensors built into it so when someone walk past each tube gently sways backwards and forth. We could have probably stood and watched it all day, but we had so much more to explore.

Something damn right Fancy!


We know that this designer light is completely out of the question for most of us, but there’s no harm in getting inspiration. Back for another year of showing off at Decorex, iDogi brought what could quite possible be one of the biggest chandeliers in the world!

Chandeliers seem to be coming back into fashion, especially ones with the lampshades on every arm. The blue colourway has been used in just the right proportions, whilst the detailing is second to none.

And if you are one of the 1%, we reckon devoting a whole room for one of these lights will probably show off your worth as best as you can.
