Lighting your way into Winter

Getting festive? So what’s your style going to be this Winter?
Are you fancying nostalgia with a hint of rustic charm or are you going all out to make a bold statement with a punchy zing?

Wall lights really are the way to go for the vintage touch, creating evocative moods and intimate spaces. Cosying up, reading a good book by the subtle light of a traditional lamp, by a roaring winter fire as the twinkling Norway spruce emits a heady scent, who could want for more in a festive scene.the-stove-ceiling-pendant-02

(or even a glass of mulled wine 🙂 )

Perhaps a more contemporary look is your seasonal inspiration. Add a shimmering prismatic glass lamp shade in front of a brightly painted chimney breast and watch the lights dance. Hanging pendant bulbs on our stunningly bright coloured fabric light flex against a funky wall will add charm to the gloomiest of dark winter days.


Upcycled standard lamps add a touch of modernity for that shabby chic characteristic.

Lighting can completely lead the way to setting the scene and evoking differing moods.

  1. A nice collection, surely it’s useful to use it during Christmas holidays but also for the rest of the year. You should integrate them with others pieces of furniture but it’s not so hard to do it compared with others lamps, I’d say that it’s a piece of cake! They are very simple and versatile.
