Festival of Light
Lighting is key to creating atmosphere in your living space and is often completely overlooked. Great lighting can make a significant difference to the look and feel of your home. Poor lighting can make even a well-furnished home feel dull and uninviting.
Interior Designers and Planners have always placed great emphasis on lighting schemes, with their understanding of the importance it plays within the overall design of a room.
Over the past decade, great lighting has become much more accessible and there are now so many choices from Designer collections, such as Tom Dixon and Ligne Roset to contemporary, design-led lamp shades, pendants to table and floor lamps.
More than any other single element in the interior, lighting is responsible for generating the atmosphere and therefore has a considerable impact on the way you feel about your living space. The way colours, forms and textures appear to the eye depends upon light. Every home needs a mixture of different types of light: ambient background lighting, task lighting and information lighting.
Adding a range of different lights to your home is an easy and straightforward way of creating varying moods and enhancing your living space.
In small rooms that have lots of vertical space but lack square footage, a good way to create the illusion of a larger room is to draw the eye upwards with an impressive ceiling fixture or pendant lamp.
Overhead lighting on its own can create shadows, especially in small rooms where there are limitations to the number of lighting fixtures that you can add. Incorporate wall lighting as well as floor and table lamps to create a more open space.
If you are able to add multiple lighting options into a space the EOS PENDANT creates a soft light and adds texture to your room, available from Devoted To on the Mezzanine.
In rooms which are limited on space, especially ones with lower ceilings, limit your lamp selection to slim fixtures that add illumination without intruding too much into the space such as the JUNCTION FLOOR LAMP from Heal's and the MUUTO PULL FLOOR LAMP from Funktion Alley.
Adjustable cord lengths and hooks make it easy to add pendant lighting just about anywhere in your home, as long as they are high enough to avoid people walking into them.
At Redbrick there are so many lighting options together with experienced and knowledgeable Design Consultants to guide and advise so that you can be confident with your choice.
