Let There Be Light

June 29, 2016 Ed

If you work from home or have a home office, lighting is a crucial element for creating a conducive workspace. It can make the difference to the atmosphere, help you to focus and also ensure you’re not putting a strain on your eyes.

Did you know the older you get, the more light you need – a 50-year-old needs twice as much light as a 25-year-old, but also needs to avoid direct glare?

Cubert Desk Lamp

Cubert Personal Light

This is an awesome lamp from Hermann Miller, which packs a real punch for such a small, sleek thing. Its clean design means it will fit in with any interior – be it ultra modern or something that hints at times gone by! Ideal for any desk, it could even be used as a bedside light – with its high-quality LED light featuring a touch-sensitive dimmer.

The fact it is directional means there’s no glare. But the truly neat thing about this lamp is that it’s also an adapter and has a USB port to charge your phone or tablet. Cubert has the ability to power and charge via its two mains sockets and also includes two high-speed, smart-charging USB ports. It’s simply brilliant.

Urban Cottage Industries

Urban Cottage Industries Bulb

Urban Cottage Industries started life in 2007 and pioneered the industrial lighting aesthetic with light fittings salvaged from mills in the West Riding of Yorkshire.

They offer a host of lighting solutions including some great pendant lights that you can tailor to fit both your budget and your style preference.

The choice is mind-boggling – be it your ceiling rose, the type of cable and colour as well as the required length, the lamp holder and even the type of light bulb. That’s before you think about the design of the shade you fancy. You can create something totally unique to you and your style!

We opted for a minimalist style with a large Globe Eco-Filament Bulb, which we loved for its dystopian Hunger Games feel!
