EFI reports emerging glass/lighting trendsKERNERSVILLE, NC—

Interior products manufacturer and designer EFI says it has found four emerging glass and light interior design trends that are creating new aesthetics and functionality for contemporary residential and commercial interior spaces.

The trends are: translucent tiles, etched and painted tabletops, soft-closing sliding doors and partitions with new patterns for privacy and openness, and LED lighting.

“Tremendous advances in glass manufacturing and materials along with European-derived design innovations have created a sea change in the glass industry not seen in decades,” EFI President Kevin Moore said in a statement. “Resilient, customizable in nearly any shape or size and impervious to a range of environments, new modern glass innovations are beautiful, eco-friendly and reflect the best of contemporary design.”
