Back in July I was asked to be an ambassador for a fabulous lighting brand — Iconic Lights — and I’m so delighted to be representing them!
They’ve got a fabulous selection of lighting. Modern, vintage, industrial, plus incredible design led reproductions which, as their name suggests, are utterly iconic.
Now, I’ve spoken about lighting, in the home, before.
Adding light to dark rooms is a fine art and the right lighting can make — or break — the ambience of a room. One of our guest bedrooms was certainly lacking a little ambience!
It had no other electric light source apart from the pendant light, which posed a problem for anyone staying overnight. It meant switching the main light off, then stumbling back to bed in the dark.
Never a good thing, particularly when there’s a wooden purlin — spanning the entire width of the room —sitting around 5 foot or so off the floor.
Needless to say, it’s resulted in many bumped heads and much swearing on various occasions.
*Hopefully* this situation will be rectified with the addition of a new light — a lovely new Fisherman’s table-lamp.
It works beautifully with the rest of the room and it’s clever touch-shade technology means that it gives three lovely lighting options.
From a gentle ambient glow to a brighter, clearer light. Perfect for my guests, who fancy a spot of late night reading.
One of the features I wanted to mention, in particular, is a sweet little glass cover which sits over the top of the lightbulb and gives a really contemporary twist.
In my haste to put this little lamp in it’s new home I *almost* threw it away.
Actually, if the truth be known, had my boy not rescued it, out of the recycling, and said —
‘What’s this little glass bowl for?’
— it most certainly would have been thrown away!
Note to self: remember to unpack all items thoroughly in future! Who knows what I’ve thrown away in the past?! Oops!
Anyway. All is well and the little glass cover was reunited with it’s owner.
Which, hopefully, will mark an end to late night stumbling, banging of brows and subsequent angry outbursts ;)
