From glamorous pendants to playful shapes and striking stripes, these are the new lighting collections we're currently swooning over
1. BRANCHING OUT
Introducing Celerie Kemble’s debut lighting collection for Arteriors, launching this September. The admired interior designer has mixed natural materials with sleek metals, showcasing her refined yet playful style.
We love the Calla sconce, H68.58xW38.1cm, £510, arteriorshome.com
2. PLUGGED IN
For beautifully-crafted switches, dimmers and sockets finished in copper, smoked gold, black or white, look no further than Dowsing & Reynolds. Each piece is designed with affordability in mind and prices start at just £9.99 for the minimalist tapered knob.

3. FEELING FLUSH
Hector Finch’s Tiber flush mount light can be placed on a wall or hung as a pendant, providing ample opportunity to admire both its ultra-shiny swirled glass interior and pretty pastel-blue exterior. What’s more, metalheads can choose between finishes in Antique Brass, Bronze, Chrome or Nickel Polished.
4. FULLY EXPOSED
As part of our collective love affair with all things industrial, exposed bulbs are having a moment in the, er, spotlight.
And why should shades and bases get all the lighting glory? Scandi brand Broste Copenhagen is bringing much-needed pizzazz to the humble bulb, adorning it with playful gold and grey stripes set to cast cool shadows.
5. STRIKE A CORD
What’s made from leather-like cable, inspired by the London landscape and at the top of our lighting wish list? Interior designer Annick Petersen’s new creations for her Alp Design label. Nailing the whole dark-and-mysterious look without being gloomy, the geometric shapes on each shade were inspired by the patterns of bricks, translated into a woven cage full of knots, twists and turns. All wonderfully inventive if you ask us…
6. ARTISTIC FLAIR
You can count on Lee Broom for statement lighting that will dazzle equally when turned on and off. A tale of two halves, the Lens Flair pendant features a solid brushed brass top with an intricate, cross-cut lens down below, designed to softly diffuse light. We’d call that mega-watt wow factor.

7. GLOBAL APPEAL
Hang this sculptural Gooseneck chandelier and bring the bright lights of New York City to your living room. From Big Apple native West Elm and Manhattan-based design studio Pelle, its salt-blasted glass spheres promise a seductively soft glow worthy of any downtown speakeasy.
8. COLOUR PERFECTION
Pretty-as-a-picture pendants don’t come much better than these pastel-hued numbers from Matthew Williamson’s collection for Debenhams.
The winning combination? Delicate fluting, playful shapes, bronze touches and jingle-jangle tassels.

It’s not every day that you come across a table lamp made from Arabescato and Marquinia marble. Which is why Bethan Gray’s first lighting collection has pulses racing at Livingetc HQ. Wow factor by the bucketload.
10. TOUCH BASE
Haven’t yet nabbed a night’s stay at the new Soho House, Wood Lane? Not to worry – get your hands on one of Rye Pottery’s lamps to light your home, just like the 47 bedrooms in the new hotel. Think mid-century style bases in muted hues stamped with Soho House’s signature stripe motif.
11. LIGHT THE WAY
Say goodbye to messy wires and cables. Fatboy’s sleek Add The Wally wall light doesn’t need to be plugged in as it comes with integrated and rechargeable LED tech. And it has a hole in the back to make attaching it to the wall easy-peasy. What’s not to love?
Why be just one shape when you can be two? The Contra pendant, designed by east London studio Vitamin Living for Heal’s spring/summer 2018 collection, features a cone-shaped shade in brushed brass and an outer blown-glass sphere (just be careful not to bang your head on it).
13. ON ALL CYLINDERS
Lighting designs with exposed bulbs tend to lean towards the rustic/industrial look, but not at Porada. Sleek cylinders in White Calacatta Gold or Portoro marble, both with beautifully pronounced veins and surface texture, and brushed brass ceiling supports make its Eolo suspension lights a truly luxe affair.
