Could Flexible Filament Lighting Be the Next Interior Design Trend?


The integration of lighting styles into interior design has always been a waypoint in determining different aesthetics, eras, and trends. One of the newest styles I’ve been seeing pop up across several different aesthetics is the use of flexible filament technology.

Bulbs like the ones displayed above, offered by the Lighting Design Shop, show all of the crazy and cool versatility that this technology gives to the lighting industry! Flexible filaments are thermoplastic elastomers that can provide the perfect amount of bend, elasticity, and strength to LED units and other similar products. And if you don’t know what “thermoplastic elastomers” are, it’s just a technical way of saying “bendy stuff”. The more you know.   

Much like the classic Edison filament bulbs, flexible filaments create unique and versatile shapes to elevate the traditional style of these bulbs. I’ve been seeing these a lot lately in trendy restaurants and bars with an industrial touch, as well as minimalist coffee shops and modern office displays. These work well in a simple fixture or even with something a little more avant-garde.

Thinking Outside the Bulb 

I’ve noticed lately that it’s becoming increasingly common to see brands moving toward catering to practicality and portability. The concept of taking your favorite product with you is appealing, plus, portable units tend to be much more durable, making them suitable for a wider variety of spaces and activities.  

Unfortunately, you can’t really carry your flexible filament bulb around with you when you’re on the move and need a light, much like you can’t bring a refrigerator with you to the office to keep your lunch cold.  Fortunately, Sunco Lighting has a solution with their latest product—the Flexable Filament, Portable and Rechargeable Table Lamp. 




Have you ever opened Pinterest for living room design ideas and been bombarded with phrases like “Eclectic Minimalist”, “Mid-Century Modern”, and “Scandanavian Shabby Chic”? What even is that? Who has the time (and money) to keep up with all of these wacky design trends?  

The best advice I’ve ever gotten was “find what works and stick with it” (thanks Grandma!). This sentiment stands across a handful of platforms, but right now, we are going to focus on this in conjunction with lighting trends. 

There are more types of design styles than I can count on all my fingers and toes. Lucky for your trend-chasing heart, Sunco’s portable, rechargeable table lamp is essentially a “one size fits all” type of product. In the wise words of Bruno Mars circa 2014, “Don’t believe me? Just watch.” 

1. Minimalist

Minimalist design is all about prioritizing the essential. A true minimalist interior design style is stripped to its core function and tends not to stray from neutral colors and functionality.  

Sunco’s portable table lamp is a modern and functional addition to a minimalist bedroom, with its sleek design. It operates without needing to be plugged in, so there are no visible wires, adding clutter to the space. And because it is portable, you can tuck it away to charge during the day. 


2. Industrial

Industrial style or industrial chic refers to an aesthetic trend that takes cues from old factories and industrial spaces that in recent years have been converted to lofts and other living spaces. Components of industrial style include weathered wood, building systems, exposed brick, industrial lighting fixtures and lots of grays and concrete. Think trendy burger restaurant with metal bar stools and Edison bulbs.  

And while you may not want to go with full rows of filament bulb track lights, something small and simple can add the same sentiment at a fraction of the cost. With the use of flexible filament technology, Sunco’s new lamp can function as a portable Edison bulb that you can place on your kitchen counter as a unique addition to any industrial style space. The use of its 2700K color temperature creates a warm glow that mimics a classic vintage fixture that you’d expect find in a space like this. 


3. Rustic

Rustic design is a style that is meant to look natural, aged, organic, and maybe even a little distressed. This design style is the opposite of modern or contemporary, giving way to a very classically messy look. If you like the rustic style, you probably once dreamed of living on a farm and raising chickens or sitting by a campfire sipping cider and cooking a hotdog on a stick.  

Imagine bringing the glow of a campfire into your living room, in the form of a small, but powerful table lamp. One of the coolest features of Sunco’s product is its breathing mode. And while it doesn’t have lungs, it breathes the same way that a fire would, without the danger of burning your house down. It’s warm, amber glow is a great table piece for any rustic style living space. Unfortunately, you can’t cook hot dogs with it.  


4. Eclectic  

Eclectic style is an approach to decorating that involves incorporating pieces from different periods and styles.  It mixes modern and vintage pieces, and focuses on mixing patterns, textures and prints to give the space a fun and... well, eclectic feel.  

This is one of the more popular trends of 2024, as it is easily thrifted, making it cheap and recycled. Because this style doesn’t have a defining feature or statement, anything goes, and that means that Sunco’s funky little table lamp will never be out of place, regardless of where you set it. It’s portable after all. 


5. Bauhaus 

Much like Minimalism, the Bauhaus design style values simplicity with an emphasis on clean lines and uncluttered spaces. It uses a lot of geometric shapes, while adding pops of color that would pair well in a toned-down environment.  

Bauhaus essentially serves “business casual”. It's... a Millennial woman wearing a colorful blazer to the office. The style is still very structured and professional, but now it’s fun. Flexible filaments have been popping up more and more in the Bauhaus style, as the warm light and unique shapes really help to pull a space together. 


   6. Art Deco 

Made popular in the 1920’s, Art Deco (short for Artist Décoratifs, but who has the time?) brings in glamour, luxury, and order with symmetrical designs in exuberant shapes that are a stark contrast to minimalism and bohemian. Art Deco fans prefer to show off the modern elements of design such as stylized curves, atmospheric lighting, and luxe materials like marble, velvet, brass, and chrome.  

When looking to light an Art Deco space, warm, funky lights are the way to go as they complement the aesthetic that Art Deco lovers prefer. A fixture that uses flexible filaments would feel at home in a space like this, almost like bringing in a very refreshing and modern candelabra.  

I think you get the idea, right? No matter what your space looks like, Sunco’s latest table lamp is the perfect lighting piece for any aesthetic. With three different dimming capabilities, this lamp is perfect for elevating any bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, or living room.  

Who Is Buying Flexable Filament Lamps?  

There are almost 8 billion people in the world, so I can’t in good faith say everybody, but I can say that I’ve been seeing these lamps gather momentum across multiple platforms. College and high school students tend to gravitate toward Tiktok shop, where portable and fun lamps are one of the top selling desk items.  

These are also becoming increasingly popular with outdoorsy folk and people who like camping, as they are compact enough to easily fit in a backpack and can hold a 9-hour charge, making this the perfect travel sized light.  

The ease of use, the stylish design, and the innovative production of Sunco’s flexible filament portable table lamp also make this the perfect gift for one of your less stylish friends who needs a little help giving their space a face lift... a space lift if you will.
