Every year, Pantone release their colour of the year and this year the focus is on Living Coral, a warm and energetic coral shade that emits positivity and reminds us of the deep blue sea. Pantone described the vibrant colour as carefree happiness. The colours in our lives influence our behaviour and the new coral inspired colour is the perfect way to energise us this year! 2019 is set to focus on warmer toned colours, and our copper lights are the perfect way to incorporate the trend this year. Bring warmth into your interiors, bring the happiness in!
Go Crazy For Copper
The bold and beautiful colour has the ability to add a touch of glamour and warmth to any given space. Copper is meant to stand out, therefore looks incredible when paired against plain backgrounds. Over the last few years, we’ve seen searches for copper accessories and interiors on the rise, as the metallic adds sophistication and copper is now more affordable than ever. Copper goes perfectly with a range of interiors, from modern and contemporary to rustic and vintage - there are no constraints to what the metallic can do!
Pair Coral With Copper
Copper and coral tones match beautifully together and when paired create a super luxurious look which emits warmth. Even just a hint of coral and copper in interior design can make a world of difference as the warm tones add a sense of tranquillity. This statement wall paired with our copper pendant with the coloured flex emits a relaxed vibe while staying on trend!

Make Use Of Natural Materials
Raw materials not only add a rustic vibe to your interior, but they’re also durable and less processed, thus are better for the environment. Interior designers are incorporating natural and raw materials in interiors more than ever nowadays as they add texture and depth, which in turn, creates the perfect atmosphere. All of our lights use high-quality, raw materials with each handcrafted light being individually finished for the perfect vintage look. Using natural wood and raw copper lights not only brings warmth but adds a splash of colour - our trio of copper pendants work incredibly well embedded into this wooden panel.

Let Copper Light Up Your Garden
When it comes to staying on trend, you should also be thinking about your exterior as well as your interior. Copper adds a warm glow to any space and our range of outdoor and garden lights look seamless placed in exteriors, ensuring your garden or outside space is on trend and beautiful. Whether you’re looking for a light for your garden or commercial establishment, our copper lights emit a vintage glow and look incredibly trendy placed outside!
Add A Hint Of Warmth
If a minimalistic interior is lust after, even adding a hint of copper in interior décor can work wonders. Some interior designers suggest that you should use the 60/30/10 approach; 60% of your interior should focus on neutral colours, 30% should be complementary colours and the remaining 10% on metallics. The simplest way to add metallics into interiors is by introducing accessories, such as mirrors, plant pots and vintage wall lights.
Commercial interiors, which focus on cooler tones, can add a hint of warmth by simply installing copper lights; copper creates an attractive warming quality in any interior. In restaurants adding copper vintage lighting above dining areas creates the perfect atmosphere for customers, making an idyllic environment for a relaxed and sociable visit.

Dare to go bare? The last few years we’ve seen an increase in interior designers exposing natural elements that would often be concealed. For the ultimate rustic décor, embrace natural materials by exposing brick walls and pair them with copper accessories such as metallic clocks, vases, pendants and wall lights. Our wall lights look incredible contrasted against exposed bricks, bringing a subtle coral tone which is what 2019 interiors are all about!

Mixing metals is also becoming increasingly popular and doing so adds an elegant style to any room. If you want to try this trend in your décor, our pendants come in a combination of pewter and copper so that you can still have the warmth and glow of copper, but the tone is subtler.

Incorporate Metallics In Other Ways
There are numerous ways you can incorporate metallic tones in your décor, from adding plant pots, cutlery, mirrors and ornaments to name just a few. You can also seek out metallic accents in wallpaper, which emit a luxe and elegant yet cosy look, especially when paired with vintage lights!

Coral has been chosen as the colour of the year as a way to cheer up our daily lives. In commercial interiors, customers are looking for a positive environment to spend time and incorporating orange tones along with raw materials allows customers to feel at home and at peace. Orange tones encourage social interaction while stimulating appetite; therefore, our orange lights not only add a warm touch to this interior but also set the tone of the restaurant entirely.
