Our short British Summer is sadly at an end, the days are definitely getting shorter and the cold is slowly creeping in. So why not brighten up your interior with some of our great lighting products, ideal for the coming winter months.
Whether it be a replacement for an old pendant lamp that you’ve been meaning to ‘get-around’ to changing or a desk lamp that will make working a little more enjoyable, we’re sure to have something for you.
Here’s a list of some of the TLS Staff’s favourite pieces…
Pendant Lights – The all important pendant light, not only a great light source but can also be the centre piece of any room. A real favourite is the Smithfield S from Flos. Designed by Jasper Morrison this pedant is ideal for providing a direct down light, and works particularly well over a dining table. Available in 3 colours.
Another popular choice is the Beat Lamp by Tom Dixon. The Beat Range is pretty comprehensive, with various pendant shapes and sizes as well floor and table versions, in different finishes. The pendant range really work well in multiples and the varying shapes complement each other well.
Table Lights – Table lights come in all shapes and sizes, for use on a desk, by the bed or just to brighten up a corner, they are a great flexible light source that can be easily unplugged and moved around. The Anglepoise Mini 75 has to be one our must have items, great for working under and available in some lovely finishes.
Another good choice for a side or bed side table is the Flos KTribe T1 or T2 lamp. Designed by the famous Philippe Starck. Available in various finishes, to suit the environment, maybe the Transparent for brightening up a corner of the room or the Smoke or Soft version for a more ambient light in the bedroom.
Floor Lamps – Like table lamps, floor lamps can be used in various places to suit your needs, whilst most can be moved around easily you may need a hand with one of staff picks… The Arco Lamp. A true classic. The Arco floor lamp is a stand out signature piece of design. A heavy weight white Carrara marble base anchors this substantial lamp to it’s surroundings.
Another popular floor lamp is the Yamagiwa M2 floor lamp. Hand made in Japan, the lamp creates a warm soft light coming through the two shelters of glassfiber strings just like a traditional Japanese paper lantern (Bonbori).
That’s just some of our staff picks for lighting this autumn, but there are so many more to choose from. Take a look at our Lighting Section for hundreds of choices of lighting.
