As Guy Fawkes Night approaches many of us will be anticipating the bright lights of a fireworks display and enjoying bonfire toffee or pie and peas around an outdoor fire. But as winter sets in now is the ideal time to think about your lighting options indoors and which pendant light or chandelier will make the perfect statement for a living or dining room space.
We have hundreds of lighting options across our store here in Sheffield and can offer many ideas and inspiration if you are struggling to decide what ambience you’d like to achieve within a particular design scheme. From standard lamps to bedside lighting, desk lamps and floor lamps we have a stunning array of different styles to suit your budget whether you’re looking for a designer Italian option, a bold centrepiece statement or something more mid-century in nature to complement a simpler, streamlined interior feel.
If you’re uber modern-minded then the Cattelan Italia Zed Floor Lamp will provide just the kind of ultra clean lines and sharp angles that will make a minimalists heart sing.
If a lighting option with architectural simplicity at the heart of its design is something that appeals then the Oda Small Lamp will definitely live up to expectations. Created by Sebastian Herkner, he worked to design a lamp which creates a full balloon shape of light and took inspiration from pictures of German water towers.
Whilst these lighting options evoke a feeling of loft living and simplicity it could be said that they don’t drum up thoughts of Bonfire Night cosiness and winter evenings in front of the telly.
The Trombone ceiling pendant, on the other hand, mixes warm copper metals with a modern design that feels impressive yet liveable. Perfect for placing above a large dining table and gathering the family around for a Guy Fawkes Night feast.
A very affordable option is the Tower 6 light cluster pendant which is available with either chrome or copper light fittings and can offer a different look depending on the type of bulbs you choose. A vintage hued Edison bulb against the copper, for example, will give you an incredibly warm and cosy feel, perfect for lazy autumnal evenings. Whereas crisper, whiter light bulbs would be perfectly placed in a kitchen as you’ll want things clearly lit when preparing all that Yorkshire Parkin for Guy Fawkes Night!
