Lighting This Autumn

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

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.Lighting_Blog3

Another good choice for a side or bed side table is the Flos KTribe T1 or T2 lamp. Designed by the famous 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.

Flos – Copycat by Michael Anastassiades

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

New from Flos is the Copycat table lamp designed by Michael Anastassiades.


Copycat displays Anastassiades signature style, using simple forms and reflective materials.

“Two spheres just touch each other. One small, in a precious material, placed under the ‘shadow’ of the large one, in illuminated glass.” M. Anastassiades

The smaller sphere, available is available in electroplated 24 karat gold, polished aluminium, black nickel or copper.  This sphere hides an LED source that radiates the lighting beam inside the glass sphere, thus delivering a smooth and uniform light.


Anastassiades founded his London design studio in 1994. Schooled in industrial design and engineering at London’s Royal College of Art and Imperial College – the Cypriot-born designer’s lighting, mirrors, and tabletop objects reside between industrial design, sculpture and decorative art. Deceptively simple, yet meticulously detailed, they betray his training as a civil engineer and industrial designer.

The Copycat is sure to be another very popular design from Anastassiades and would be ideal for the coming Autumn months.

TLS LOVES – Animals

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

Here at TLS we really love our animals! and we just can’t help ourselves when we find a great animal product.

We’ve got birds, bears, cats, dogs and more.


A long standing favourite at TLS is the Rimini Blue range of animals from Bitossi. Designed by Aldo Londi, each piece is unique with varying shades and textures.


Now back in-stock are Kay Bojesens stunning Songbirds, produced by Rosendahl. Each of these colourful characters comes with their own name and story. Including ‘Kay’ which is named after Mr. Bojesen himself. He was a great fan of the colour blue and was known to always either be dressed in an immaculate blue suit, shirt and tie or a white smock.


Another new arrival comes from Jane Beck. Jane supplies beautiful textiles, many of which are vintage and all made in Wales. These cute fabric doorstops are handmade by Gillian near Ammanford in Carmarthenshire, each one is made from vintage fabrics, so they’re all a little different.


We’re always on the lookout for more special animal products, and we’ll make sure to keep you posted on our newest finds.
