Lighting trends to try this autumn
As autumn approaches and winter creeps closer, it’s time to bid farewell to long summer days and the bright natural light that accompanies it. At this time of year, having lighting in your home that you love is more important than ever. Here’s our guide on how to make the most of your lighting and create the perfect winter hideaway.
Natural materials such as wood, rattan and bamboo have quite rightly spent a lot of time in the spotlight over the last few years due to their biophilic aesthetic and their ability to create a calm, relaxing environment. They also tend to have better eco-credentials than man-made materials, and as a result, are better for the environment and reducing your carbon footprint.
The sustainably sourced FSC ash, oak and walnut wood we select for our pendant, wall, table and floor lighting designs is responsibly sourced and durable meaning that our products will stand the test of time and light up your home for years to come.
Another trend that has been building in popularity over recent months is the use of metallic elements in interior design. Using metals such as brass alongside natural materials offers the perfect juxtaposition between natural and man-made. Choosing lights and lampshades with metallic accents is a great way to modernise your space and update your home for autumn.
Oozing sophistication and never failing to catch the eye, our Wheal Lighting Range is a modern classic. A shining brass base plate and brass bulb fitting blend industrial aesthetic with natural wood, producing opulence and intrigue. For a more subtle take on the metallic trend, our reflective gold cap bulbs add interest to your space and look great styled in our Skipper Wall Light and Arame Wall Light designs.
Monochrome is a trend that makes use of blacks, greys and whites to create an effortlessly cool, minimalist aesthetic. This classic look never goes out of style and one of the best things about it is that you can interpret it in your own way. Opting to use different combinations of monochrome tones, and even a few splashes of colour here and there can allow you to introduce character throughout your home.
Our Noctis Lighting Range could be the perfect accompaniment to your dream monochrome interior. Dark, ebonised wood meets bold, innovative design to create a deep, rich aesthetic. The Noctis No.1 Giant Pendant and Noctis Urchin Small Cluster can be used as a dramatic centrepiece and a focal point for your monochrome interior. Alternatively, our Noctis Wheal Wall Light allows you to distribute accents of darkness around your space.
There can be no denying that one of the most effective ways to completely transform your interior is to invest in a statement lighting piece. Statement designs are all about impact. Choosing the light that creates the biggest wow factor is not always easy - and it is important to select a piece that compliments your space without overwhelming it.
If it's a statement piece with a memorable impact you’re after, our nature-inspired collection of Flock Chandeliers bring mesmerising shadow and dancing light beams in equal measure to an array of interiors. Designed to suit a range of spaces and property styles, our wooden chandeliers are steam bent by hand and come in a variety of sizes and wood types to create a spectacle in any room.
Alternatively, our No.1 Pendant Giant XL is an iconic design that showcases our unique steam bent aesthetic, whilst our famous Butterfly Pendant mimics the motion of a butterfly’s beating wings and balances beauty and energy to striking effect.
