Just as accessories add pizzazz to an outfit, lighting fixtures are key in bringing your interior design scheme together. Gold, brass, glass, interesting shapes and sizes are essential in creating a home so beautiful you’ll never want to leave it.
When you’re considering your lighting design think about it in this way — living spaces require three types of lighting: ambient, task and accent. Ambient light is about illuminating the entire space, task lighting directs to certain areas (not just work spaces), and accent lights shine on to specific objects. We love Innermost’s entire collection, featuring contemporary pieces with tons of character and ultra functional. The Glaze 14 is an ideal accent light when several are displayed in a row. Their soft cream body and copper anodised finish fits easily within any space. Whilst, the Parasol table lamp is a multi-directional task light that allows you to manipulate it as needed. Innermost’s Bead pendant light and the astounding Facet chandelier will light up your room like no other. And last but not least the quirky vibes of the Jeeves table lamp will inspire a smile or two amongst your guests.
You want your lighting scheme to be free of shadows, you can do this by mixing different types of lighting at different points in the room. However, don’t be shy when choosing your statement piece — go for the gold. The Botti suspension light features a hand made structure that embodies all the de details of wind instruments in an orchestra. This monumental piece showcases the exquisite work of Delightfull’s skilled artisans.
Not convinced by a ceiling light? No problem! Create a central light source with the iconic Tolomeo Mega Terra by Italian brand Artemide. It features cantilevered arm and base in polished in aluminium and a parchment paper diffuser. It’s available in black or ecru. Are you looking to be bold? Then opt for the Pantalica chandelier. Made from black hand-blown glass this sophisticated piece shines bright even through the darkness. Inject colour into your space with the Tolomeo table lamp or add playfulness with the Dalu table lamp.
We couldn’t sign off a post about lighting without including British brand Anglepoise. A vast collection of worldwide recognisable pieces, shapes and masterful engineering, Anglepoise goes beyond the office and into your home.
