A lot of focus goes into what we hang on our walls – but what about how we light them? Wall lights are often dismissed. Maybe it’s because there’s not as much choice. Perhaps they’ve been forgotten a bit, but these vintage wall lights are worthy of a second look.
What lights should you add to your walls?
Just because lighting our homes is necessary it doesn’t mean we should settle with bland. From industrial bulkheads and swan neck lights to scissor lamps and articulating task lamps, our vintage dealers have got an eye for the best wall lights. They’ll be fighting for attention with the most characterful prints on your walls.
We’re all about a bit of flair. Whether you’re looking to increase the general light levels of your space or want accent lighting to highlight an architectural feature, you can achieve this beautifully with vintage lighting.
There’s also something called task lighting – that’s when you need some practical light above a bedside table, for instance. Wall lights can pool light and with many having articulated arms, you can direct the light where it’s needed.
You’ll know when you’ve got it right.
