The golden rule? Light a room for how you’re going to use it. A stylish pendant over your dining room table or breakfast bar creates clever task lighting that allows you to say goodbye to overhead downlights. Very flattering, pendants provide function, gently setting the mood for productivity and giving focus that enables easy eating, reading and working. If you’re looking to give a light (and room!) more of a designer look and feel without help from an electrician, our range of new Easy Fit Pendant Shades features designs to suit every style of dwelling. Loved by our Senior Buyer Claire Wilks, a piece from this collection may well prove to be the transformational ‘two minute’ update you’ve been looking for.
Meet your new DIY statement shades
First up, industrial. Suiting both modern and traditional décor, our Hillingdon Easy Fit Pendant Shade has a spun steel finish, with its smooth curves bringing an industrial aesthetic to your home. Available in two finishes, this stylish game changer is compatible for use with a standard E27 light fitting. Also supplied is a metal adaptor ring so that the Hillingdon can be used with a B22 fitting, should that suit too.
Looking to create a complete look and feel that’s a nod to mid-century interior schemes? Our woven rattan Battersea Easy Fit Pendant Shade is inspired by Scandi design and creates a shadow emitting decorative effect that adds a soft yet striking finishing touch in any interior space. Blending beautifully with wood furniture, the Battersea shades (available in both round and domed shapes) pair well with the pieces in our Hambledon oak collection.
Looking for a design that really works as single unit or - for maximum impact - grouped in a row? The classic and minimal Chelsea Easy Fit Pendant Shade is available either as a globe or diamond design. The perfect addition to a host of interior styles, it’s a great option for upgrading the focal point of a room with ease. These shades take pride of place above breakfast bars, dining tables or kitchen islands.
Time for something a little different?
One thing’s for sure: the key to creating a space you want to relax in is lighting. If you love reading, creating a well-lit comfy corner is the way to go. So, without further ado, if you’re looking for a lamp (that doesn’t require a sparky either!) we’ve one more new addition to introduce. The Kingsbury Table Lamp brings a natural aesthetic to indoor living spaces. In contrast with the natural linen lampshade is a solid walnut base that’s designed in a curved dome shape and beautifully highlights the natural grain of the wood from which it’s crafted. Great for creating a welcoming ambience, lamps are an important part of any room. This one is a dream paired with any pieces in our Kersoe Collection, including our brand new Kersoe Dining Chair.
