Do you remember cane-style lighting? It was all the rage a few years ago, but then it seemed to disappear. Well, it's making a comeback! Here's why you should consider using this type of lighting in your home.
One of the main reasons for the resurgence of these bohemian-style lamps is the evergrowing trend for sustainable design. Consumers are increasingly looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint without sacrificing design. Cane-style lighting is a great way to achieve both of these goals. These lamps are made from sustainable materials, like bamboo, which also adds warmth to your living space.
In addition to being eco-friendly, cane-style lighting is also very versatile. These lamps can be used in any room of your home, from the living room to the bedroom. They provide a warm, ambient light that is perfect for relaxing or entertaining. And because they come in a variety of sizes and shapes, you can easily find one that fits your space.
Cane pendant lights are also available in natural darker colors. This way, they can serve to enrich a palette of natural tones. Alternatively, they could provide more contrast than lightly-colored versions in a white environment. For example, in the space on the right, our natural dark brown wicker light would go perfectly with the vintage side table and mirror to provide a counterweight to the all-white interior. Many designers use painted rattan pendant lights in interior design styles such as Scandinavian and industrial. This sleek, oversized type of wicker pendant light creates a certain calm and casual atmosphere while still looking up to date.
Pairing cane-style lighting with other sustainable materials is a great way to create an eco-friendly and stylish home. Cane lamps pair well with natural fibers like jute and wool, as well as other sustainable materials like bamboo and cork. Incorporating these materials into your décor will not only create a beautiful space but also bring warmth to your home.
Another reason to look into cane as a material for lighting is that it's cheap! Bamboo is one of the most sustainable materials on the planet and it’s also one of the most affordable. Cane-style lighting is a great way to add style to your home without spending a fortune. That being said, some of the designer pieces can set you back a pretty penny. But there are plenty of great options out there that won't break the bank.
One of our favorite cane lamps this year is the Market Set Screen. This lamp is made from sustainable bamboo and features a unique Cannage design. The Screen XL pendant from Market Set brings a modern and classic charm to your home, whether hanging over a table or the center of a large room. The Screen XL pendant is composed of a thin metal structure supporting 10 screens of various sizes. These screens – available in white Murano paper, caning, or black caning – will allow softening of the emitted light to avoid glare. The result is a cozy lighting effect with a very aesthetic play of light and shadow. With a natural texture and renewed design, it could feel at home in both a classic Hampton beach house style home and a rugged Australian coastal cottage. We have even seen it pop up in Scandinavian and industrial interiors.
The Market Set Screen is also available in several other configurations - most notably, a larger XXL version and a beautiful floor lamp. Although the lamp is not cheap by any measure, we believe that it is worth every penny for its beautiful design and French craftsmanship.
If you’re looking for a more affordable option, the Cane Pendant Light from IKEA is a great choice. This lamp is made from bamboo and features a simple design that will work in any room. The light emits a warm, ambient light, making it perfect for relaxing or entertaining.
Cane lighting also doesn't go out of style as quickly as other trends. It has a classic bohemian look that will always be in style. So if you invest in a few good pieces, you'll be able to use them for years to come.
