As this beautiful spring weather is already giving us some hints of the longer and warmer summer nights to come, we’re craving the ‘golden hour’ more than ever, when those stunning purple, pink and orange sky tones spread a temperate ambience all over our living rooms - that precise moment when the sun is ready to set and you hope it’ll last forever…
It’s impossible to stop the time but, here at Ponsford, we strongly believe that, with the right lighting accents strategically placed in the space and the perfect bulb colour, we can hold onto this magical hour even when the sun is gone. So, here’s a list of 10 lighting features that will not only help to refresh your interior, but also keep those sunset vibes going strong in the months to come.
And there was light!
1. Venetian glassworks
With 25 beautiful glass spheres, the Bulles chandelier from Reflex combines LED lights creatively arranged in different lengths to create diverse focal points, casting a relaxed glow. Place it above your dining table and bring a charming touch to your dinner parties.
2. Modern and unique
The Lucciola Piantana floor lamp combines three main accent lights in different sizes, featuring handmade Murano glass, a sandblasted top and a mirror base. This is a minimalistic piece that highlights the texture of the glass to create a particular radiance when strategically positioned in your home.
3. Glamorous spotlight
If you’re looking for a decorative wall fixture to create the perfect indirect light, the Venezia Wall Pendant Lamp from Cattelan Italia could be the perfect solution. This beautiful piece features suspended glittering glass droplets in various lengths, which emit a soft, diffused glare - with a beautiful shimmering effect created by the glass beads.
4. A touch of grandeur
Looking for something more classic? The Nerva chandelier is inspired by Hollywood’s Golden Age. With six curvaceous arms holding six individual bent tip candle lamps, with a combination of a modern finish and vintage touches, this eye-catching piece will bring authenticity to any modern or traditional interiors.
5. Creative functionality
The Cattelan Italia Zed floor lamp is an iconic piece beautifully designed without compromising on functionality. With a steel frame and matching base, it will brighten up any corner of your living space.
6. Beautiful shapes
Bring the summer skies to your living room with the Stella chandelier - a magnificent mirror-plated lighting solution crafted with 25 glass stars, elegantly arranged for an endearing finish.
7. A reservoir of light
If you’re aiming for a soothing vibe, choose a vintage style bulb which gives a lower level of calming light. The Oda Medium Lamp is a perfect example of muted, warming light that will create an indirect focal point.
8. Striking fixtures
The Lupita Crystal Ceiling Pendant is the perfect centrepiece to provide bright light from the six lamps within its frame. With stunning crystals draping downwards in a dramatic sphere, this piece would be ideal for modern, contemporary decor.
9. Curved shapes
The Astra Arc Floor Lamp features a contemporary design that would enhance any modern living space. With a chrome steel base and stem, matched with a white polyethylene lampshade, this lamp is sure to highlight textures, paintings and general decoration in the room.
10. Statement pieces
The Trombone pendant is a statement cluster light fitting that creates a real impact with the help of 10 trombone-shaped fittings in a brushed copper finish. The integrated LED lights produce an ambient downward lighting effect, perfect for a dining room centrepiece above a table.
