Style Edit - a room by room guide to lighting your home
When we think about the design of our homes, time, effort and creativity goes into floorplans and colour schemes, yet often lighting comes as an after-thought and is driven by functionality over design. Yet given some thought, the lighting we add to our homes can not only be beautiful in design, but change our mood and how we use a space - it can relax us, improve our productivity and change the ambience of a space... here are our recommendations for lighting your home, room by room:
We have a selection of 100% cotton, pleated lampshades available - a classic shade, they cast a warm, muted light - perfect for side tables, dressers and to offer low-level ambience lighting, in a living space or dining room.
Our terracotta lamp bases above will be back in stock next month, if you'd like to see pictures or to pre-order, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Our architectural hero piece, the Arch lamp is a creative collaboration - designed by BoFred and handmade by ceramicist, Jen de Charmoy - both based in Cape Town. The perfect centrepiece for a console table, the light illuminates the beautiful subtle lustre of the hand-finished light black base.
If you're looking to create 'zoned' lighting above a breakfast bar for example, our terracotta pendant lights can be added to any length cable to give you the desired drop you need. High level will cast a wider light, great for prepping food, whilst a lower level will give a more intimate dining experience. We love Creative Cables online for ordering cord wrapped cables to compliment your interior in a range of colours and finishes.
Finally, our most popular natural woven pendant lights are back in stock, the oversized, hand-woven shades create a beautiful, dappled light - adding drama and texture to a home. White and black styles also available.
