Lighting: Back to Basics

29 July 2014

Lighting is one the most integral parts of interior designing when it comes to creating the right ambience for a room. When choosing the right position or shade it’s easy to forget about the most integral part of a light, the simple bulb. We think it’s a bright idea to start thinking about how to get the most out of your lights through making the right decision when it comes to choosing a bulb.


If it’s a more concentrated stream of light that you’re looking for, perhaps to illuminate a certain area within a room or a kitchen surface then a candle shaped light bulb is perfect. They distil the light onto a specific area more succinctly than a rounded bulb. Our Candle Light Bulb will last twice as long and consume around 30% less energy than a regular incandescent bulb and can be used with dimming switches.

Rounded light are perfectly suited to a central position within a room and providing a wider washing of brightness from one corner to the other. Our Spherical Light Bulb, while great for indoor use, can also be used outdoors with our table and wall lights and like the Candle Light Bulb will last for around 2000 hours, offers a crisp, white light. It’s also particularly environmentally friendly.
