Lighting - Laura James

Light Up Your Life

Lighting is such an important part of your home. It creates atmosphere and can be adjusted for each individual room, from a welcoming feel in the hallway to a light and airy space in the bedroom. It is only if you travel from room to room, you’ll find how much lighting has an impact on your space, from style choices to practicality.  

Welcome Home Hallway  

There’s nothing better than the feeling of home that’s why when you return from a busy day the hallway is the first space you step foot into. Hallways can often be small spaces or long and narrow with little natural light. You want the lighting to be warm to welcome you home and give that instant relaxed feeling. A slim console table is the perfect piece of furniture to display a stylish lamp. The Hexaganal Haveri mango wood lamp, creates soft light and adds natural texture to the hallway. A floor lamp is another way to add light if you don’t have space for furniture.

Living Room Atmosphere  

The living room, as the name suggests is where we spend a lot of our time particularly in the evenings when we may entertain guests or pile on the sofa for a movie night. Creating a cosy and inviting space is all down to the lighting. No one wants to put the big light on for watching your favourite TV shows! Opting for a floor lamp like the Litton makes a statement in the room or an elegant table lamp like the Jute Konduru will look chic next to an armchair. Floor lamps, and table lamps plus candles all contribute to the right mood.

Illuminate Your Dining Space   

When it comes to dining, it depends on space and the tone you want to create. If you have an open plan space then statement pendant lights hanging over a kitchen island or table will create a stylish focal point and bright light for relaxed dining. If you have a separate dining room, then you may want to create more atmospheric lighting, especially if you love to host dinner parties. Soft and flattering light will be welcomed by all, nothing too stark but still light enough so guests can appreciate your tablescape. The Neri black string pendant light will add some atmosphere whilst adding smaller lamps in the room will help set the tone for dinner.

Study Under the Spotlight 

Whether you have a separate study at home, or you’ve created a work from home zone in a living room alcove, you will need excellent lighting to help you stay motivated and productive. Although the power of natural light is great for a working environment, this may not be an option therefore a good desk lamp is essential. Our Bristall metal desk lamp is chic yet functional and doesn’t take up too much space if you have a small desk. Alternatively, if you want to add a splash of colour to your work space then the Shilton blue lamp gives a cool retro feel.

Bedroom Ambience  

The bedroom should be a relaxing and calm space where the lighting is subtle and soft. A pendant light and bedside table lamps should suffice for bedroom lighting. Our Elland table lamps with ribbed glass are elegant and perfect for bedroom décor, available in colours pink, clear, green and grey. We have a matching pendant light too, to create a cohesive look.  

If you are short on space or only have a small bedside table, then some matching wall lights are a great option for the bedroom. The string Neri wall light has a plug in function so there’s no need to wire it into the wall.
