The clocks turn back on October 29th, which can only mean one thing: winter is upon us and our lighting needs some attention. Since the next few months have darker days and chillier climes in store, seek welcome refuge from the cold weather by turning your home into a domestic haven.
Where to start with a new season homeware refresh? As the evenings draw in and our nights grow longer, add much-needed warmth to your home with a balance of ambient, task and accent lighting. Illuminate your home with a variety of styles to create a cosy and welcoming atmosphere that will make those cosy nights in all the more enjoyable.
From concrete to copper, marble and mango wood, our lighting this season has a heavy industrial influence, where reclaimed materials are versatile enough to have a lasting spot in any home. Add an edge to your traditional furnishings with subtle industrial accent pieces such as statement copper lighting. Whether you’re looking for show-stopping ceiling lamps, understated brass table lamps or simply vintage light bulbs, we have a diverse range of lighting that will add warmth in winter and continue to have a place in your home for years to come.
Made for lazy Sundays reading on the sofa, floor lamps add an instant sense of cosiness to a room. Position an adjustable floor lamp next to a comfortable leather armchair as a spotlight to your favourite book. Our Smoked Floor Lamp is the perfect late night reading companion. The delicate height-adjustable arched stem of the lamp is specifically designed for overhead lighting, whilst the white marble base slides easily under chairs and tables. With a blue hand-blown lampshade, this floor lamp is a sleek and versatile statement perfect for your living room.
For a more dramatic approach to floor lamps, take the industrial homewares trend further by picking floor lamps with a cinematic quality. Our Hammered Copper Floor Lamp has an upward-facing concave light which creates a spotlight effect. Alternatively, our Photographers Floor Lamp, inspired by classic photographers’ studio equipment, where an iron lamp again provides a subtle spotlight-effect on the corner of any room.
Much like floor lamps, a table lamp will provide dim lighting for a warm ambience. As both a stylish and functional addition to any room, table lamps can complete a coffee table or bedside table, providing a warm and intimate mood. Add edge to your bedside table with a Concrete Table Lamp, where a concrete base and stark white lampshade provide a subtle nod to the industrial trend.
Wooden-based lamps provide a sense of comfort to a room. The Miko Table Lamp is a modern update on a traditional, understated table lamp. The minimalist design of the crisp white lampshade is given depth by the rich texture of the reclaimed mango wood base.
Alternatively, evoke retro glamour with the Retro Brass Table Lamp, which wouldn’t look out of place on a desktop in Mad Men. A miniature lamp post-style shape is made modern by the sophisticated cylindrical lampshade, and a black marble base accentuates the gold-coloured hardware. Perfect for a home study.
Pendant lights not only instantly brighten a room, but their dramatic appearance is a bold statement ideal for large spaces. The pendant style is made contemporary and fuss-free with the use of sleek industrial materials. The Brass Cluster Pendant Ceiling Lamp is an eye-catching cluster of hand-blown glass pendants. The varying sizes of the three lampshades create a staggering effect, and the brass hardware and filament bulbs further emphasis the industrial aesthetic. The perfect statement piece for your kitchen.
Another impactful design is a less dainty concrete shade. A prime example of industrial minimalism and a key homeware trend in recent years, a concrete light casts a bold presence in any room. Our Large Concrete Pendant Light is cast by hand by the concrete being poured into a mould, making each one entirely unique. A large hanging light will introduce the industrial edge into your room and can be balanced by softer interiors at ground level. The concave shape of the lamp distributes light beautifully and adds warmth to a room.
