From scalloped table lamps to playful shapes and striking stripes, these are the new A/W18 lighting collections we're currently swooning over
2019 is bringing us countless covetable new collections, including glamorous wall lights, table lamps and statement pendants. From glamorous wall lights and bathroom lighting to stylish kitchen lighting, sophisticated switches and sockets, and the most striking pendants for statement dining room lighting, these are some of the new lighting designs that have caught our eye over at Livingetc.
1. LIGHT TOUCH
Tala’s objective? Elevating the humble light bulb to a design object. One glance at the Oblo Oak touch lamp and we think you’ll agree it’s a mission that’s been achieved. Marvel at its mouth-blown glass sphere and pure American oak base, all controlled with a three-phase, turned brass touch dimmer.
2. 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

3. SHINE A LIGHT
The Precise wall lamp is a stylish choice at an affordable price. It comes from homeware brand Ross & Brown, and there’s no need to call an electrician as while this light can connect to the mains, it also comes with a cable and plug.
4. SHELL OUT
Scallops are the hottest shape around and, as usual, the Scandinavians are leading a fine example with the trend. Originally designed in 1938 by Paavo Tynell, peer underneath the brass shade of Gubi’s 5321 table lamp and you’ll find the bulb sitting like a sparkling pearl beneath. Add the rattan-clad stem and you’ve got one pretty precious artefact.

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.

7. 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.

8. 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.
9. 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…

10. 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.

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.
12. 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.
13. 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?
