From glamorous pendants to playful shapes and striking stripes, these are the new lighting collections we're currently swooning over
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
