Truth be told, nailing a gorgeous glow for your space isn’t as simple as picking out a pretty light fixture and calling it a day. You’ll also want to consider factors like choosing the best bulb and how to mix ambient, task, and accent lighting. Plus, as the temperature starts to dip and people crave more time indoors, many dwellers are now eager to rely on lighting for making their spaces feel as cozy as possible.
“People are gravitating towards warmth and texture,” explains Maddy DeVries and Ashley Walsh of Morgan Design Studio. “We are escaping the millennial gray trend!”
Enter: linen lighting, which is emerging as one of fall’s biggest lighting trends. Instead of a glass or opaque fabric shade, everything from table lamps to ceiling pendants is now getting finished with a layer of linen. Sure, linen’s lightweight, breezy quality might be synonymous with hot summer days, but that barely-there material emits a comfortable, sun-drenched glow that’s awesome for autumn (and beyond!).
“It’s a comforting and classic never-go-out-of-style option,” shares Stephanie Meyer, principal designer at Sonoma-based firm AVCO Design. “The softness and textural quality give visual richness and are a friendly fit for most interiors.”
To help start your shopping, I culled the market for nine of the best linen lighting options to give your home a cozy edge this fall. Bright ideas are just a few scrolls (and clicks!) away.
