Choosing the right lighting for the living room is not always easy. We often ask ourselves the same questions: what colour should the light throw, should the fittings be timeless or modern, and of course, what areas would we like to light up?
Ceiling lights are always a popular choice. Practical and functional, they are the perfect source of light for your living room. Some, however, prefer a more intimate light in their living rooms, illuminating certain areas and casting shadows on others. Here, we are providing an insight into a variety of ceiling lights available, that are a little outside of the norm, and showcasing some stunning examples by our professionals.
A crystal chandelier is the epitome of elegance and will always remain a classic piece in the home. Why not try something still simple, but with a slightly modern twist? This beautiful light fixture is subtle, yet unique in its own right. You get a sense of two completely different shapes and textures simply by looking at it from different angles. There are a myriad of designer chandelier options available, how far and how different you want to go is entirely up to you.
We are always choosing glass for our lighting. Why not go for something a little different? Wood provides warmth to a room, and this cleverly cut out light shade will cast some beautiful shadows onto your space. You can use a lamp like this in a variety of situations; be it an industrial look or a contemporary take on an elegant living room.
Take a step back in time and add a splash of vintage or retro into your living space. Bold enough to make a statement, yet still subtle at the same time. This light fixture can work in many household themes. Why not play it off against some floral patterns or blend it in with a modern theme? The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination.
Wow, what a light fixture! This sculptural and handmade piece of three-dimensional art is sure to attract attention. Due to the geometric shape, the material and the shiny surface, the light is diffused and directed at the same time. During the day, the sunlight reflects the colour and shape through your living room generating playful shadows and reflections.
Why not invest in a chandelier that speaks in volumes for itself? Grim & Marius caters for those who are looking for something a little outlandish and far from your regular, stock standard lighting. In Liguria, the Italian coastal region where these lights are made, flea market treasures and antiques are fashioned individually to form unique and bespoke pieces. This means that no two designs will ever be the same. Brightly coloured fringes, feathers and colourful bling are typical of their designs and will forever be the talking point of your family members and guests.
