Leading Australian LED lighting company Brilliant Lighting (Aust) forecasts that simple Scandinavian design will trend in interiors and lighting in 2015. The company has recently released an affordable range of on-trend decorative pendants inspired by the simplicity of Nordic design and a pared back Japanese aesthetic.

Interior designer and trend forecaster Bree Leech says the Scandinavian look can be easily recreated at home using a few key elements. Ms Leech explains that the simple Scandi look combines graphic geometry and clean lines with organic and relaxed finishes. The look may occasionally take on an industrial edge, but the final effect is always clean and modern.

Key elements of the Scandi look include use of materials such as paper, pale unfinished timber and matt black metal; simple, limited palettes, often in neutral, charcoal, black and white with a pop of colour in detail, such as a lamp cord; and modern twists using pastels such as on-trend pink.

The Scandi look can be complemented with simple, contemporary designs from the Brilliant Lighting range such as large industrial pendants or timber balanced-arm lamp bases with black or white shades; options such as single colour or timber finish graphic geometric designs featuring shards, facets, cubes or polygons can also be considered.

An innovator in domestic lighting, Brilliant Lighting is one of the largest and most respected names in the Australian lighting industry with a range of more than 1500 products. The company’s designers study trends around the world to develop their forecast, including product and design innovation, colour and finish.

Brilliant Lighting Interior Product Manager, Jacqueline Hughes says the Gian floor lamp with its timber tripod base and white painted detail makes a soft, fresh addition to a Scandi-inspired room. Among pendants, Ms Hughes recommends the big, bold, industrial style Hugo pendants featuring a soft chalky finish for a kitchen or dining room, or the Matrix, which adds a modern twist with its strong geometric design.

Brilliant Lighting also offers the Pix range of table lamps and floor lamps featuring an angle-poise style with timber arm and exposed fabric cord.

All Brilliant Lighting products come with a 12-month warranty and use the latest LED technology, offering up to 25,000 hours of performance and delivering power savings of up to 80 per cent compared with incandescent globes.

The new decorative pendants from Brilliant Lighting are available exclusively at Bunnings Australia.
