Innermost have released a large new colour range of high- quality pendant lights in the most anticipated interior colour trends for 2022.
Launching at this year, the company’s Hoxton and Chelsea lights will be available in Summer Sun, Dusky Blue, Forest, Papaya, Olive and Very-Peri.
Innermost co-founder Steve Jones said: “Ceiling lighting is now the focus of rooms rather than being merely functional and our new products will allow designers to really make an impact with ceiling lights across both residential and commercial projects.
The ‘Very-Peri’ purple Pantone shade is expected to soar in popularity this year with those opting for vibrant colours, along with our Summer Sun pendant in energising yellow.
Calming blue hues, including Dusky blue, are also set to be big in 2022 as they take over from the black and grey shades previously been an interior staple. Dulux has already announced that its ‘Bright Skies’ blue is its paint colour of 2022.
The aluminium spun Hoxton and Chelsea shades are two of the most popular Innermost ranges.
Available in a variety of sizes, they were previously only available in black or white colour options.
Innermost Plus has announced UMAGE as the first new brand to be welcomed to its fold. UMAGE (pronounced ooh-may) is a Danish word meaning ‘making an effort’.
Beautiful Danish design meets affordability, high quality materials and a genuine care for the environment.
Innermost Plus co-founder Steve Jones commented: “The UMAGE brand combines aesthetics, simplicity and functionality with thoughtful craftmanship and environmental care. The result is exquisite designs with a sustainable edge. We’re really excited to be working with the team and introducing their beautiful products to our customers.”
Innermost Plus will stock the full range of UMAGE products from its modern distribution centre and factory in Telford, ensuring fast delivery and local support for clients.
Brett Day, head of retail, Europe/Oceania/Middle East for UMAGE, said: “We want to ensure we have the best representation and support for UMAGE in the UK and Innermost Plus is the perfect partner for us. We are excited to be taking this new path together.”
UMAGE acknowledges that selling furniture and lighting can never be 100% sustainable, but as a brand it wants to make an extra effort for the environment. Through a collaboration with the NGOs One Tree Planted scheme, every time a design made of wood is sold, a tree is planted.
Pinterest is an amazing source of interior inspiration and you can create your own mood boards in minutes, gathering ideas from so many sources. Placing images next to each other allows you to quickly get a feel for how the mix of influences will work together. For lighting in particular, it can be hard to visualise the scale & effect without looking at a few examples. Take a look at Innermost’s boards as a starting point for pendant lighting inspiration. You can then find boards based on more specific search terms, such as residential interiors, cool offices or retail spaces.
Consider the light temperature
How do you want to feel when you’re in the room? Is it a space to be inspired or to feel calm..? Consider this early on as it will affect what style of lighting you go for and the type of aesthetic. If you don’t know about lighting specifications, talk to the lighting manufacturer or retailer who can advise what you need to achieve your desired atmosphere. We are always happy to help talk through your design plans.
Don’t be afraid to go big!
We say this a lot at innermost, but it continues to be one of our top pieces of advice. Large scale pendants can create a stunning effect. If you have high ceilings then you can get really adventurous with deep dish shades and oversized pendants. We also offer a number of flat format chandeliers that will work for more compact spaces to give the same amount of impact.
Metallics are always on trend
Gold and copper lights reflect beautifully, give an impression of luxury and add to the ambience. A high quality brass or copper lamp will be an investment piece. Choose a classic shape that will not date, such as the stunning Bramah or Joseph pendant lamps by EOQ. Use metallics with neutral backdrops to keep on trend this year.
Try a cluster
Mixing pendants in a small group at different heights is called a ‘cluster’ and can create a lovely effect. It might seem complicated but using a selection of a few pendants is highly effective. Mix pendant styles and materials to give a contemporary finish.
