Trends in Lighting

We spoke with Brenda of Creative Lighting in St. Paul regarding what trends she is seeing in lighting selections. Creative Lighting has been one of the go to lighting showrooms in St. Paul since the 1920’s.

“We are seeing simple lines, less formal, and smaller fixtures but better quality.”


    1. The Edison style bulbs are showing up everywhere.  They are a throwback to tradition but very simple and offer a unique look, see more examples of this type of bulb here.








  • Hubbardton forge is an example of a very popular line that is hand forged in Vermont.  It is a little more high end but people appreciate the hand craftsmanship. 


The fixture on the upper right is one of Hubbardton Forges’ best selling pieces.  They create a variety of different styles of lighting as well as mirrors. Below are some additional examples of chandeliers by Hubbardton Forge.
  • We are seeing drum shades, and antique brass in dining rooms.


  • Colored glass is still very popular, it is being specified a lot for kitchen pendants.



Thank you Brenda for the wonderful input!
