We were thrilled to be among thousands from around the world who flocked to Dallas, TX in January for Lightovation. Twice a year (January and June), lighting manufacturers unveil their latest indoor and outdoor residential products to potential buyers at Dallas Market Center.

According to Cindy Morris, Dallas Market Center president, and CEO, “The lighting marketplace in Dallas continues to grow and to add increased value for lighting retailers from around the world. For new products, for trend insights, for retail skills, for relationship building — Lightovation is a must-attend event.

Without a doubt, attending Lightovation provided us with the opportunity to see some of the brightest and best of the top trends in lighting. From traditional to contemporary – and everything in between – we were able to preview a wide variety of distinctive lighting designs.

There are many innovative and unique lighting design trends to look forward to this year. And of course, we’re excited that some of this beautiful new lighting will soon be seen in homes and commercial spaces.

Here are some of the lighting trends from January’s Lightovation we especially loved:


Gorgeous fixtures from Kalco Lighting


Gigi Sconces from Corbett Lighting

We adore these floral patterns!


Color Pop by Mitzi: A new line from Hudson Valley Lighting, Mitzi is billed as “attainable high design” and is especially appealing to the Millennial demographic.
