Cosiness at the flick of a switch

01 October 2016

As the days get shorter and the nights draw in, we often look forward to curling up on the sofa with a nice cup of tea. But many of us forget just how important lighting can be. It can completely change the mood of a room.

"With the right lighting, you can transform a room from a harsh uninviting space into a warm room that lets you unwind after a busy day. And it doesn’t have to break the bank either. With a little bit of creative thinking and some clever choices you can create a cosy well-lit room on a budget."

Marie Tenglund, Stylist

If you want your cabinet to look its best, use these JANSJÖ clip on lights. They’re really easy to install with their clamp function, and their energy-efficient LED bulbs last 20 times longer than an incandescent light bulb.

A great way to make your home look warm and welcoming from the outside is by placing a lamp on your window sill. The GAVIK table light can bring some colour and cosiness into any home. This can be a lovely sight when you are walking home on those dark autumn nights.

Sometimes just a little bit of extra light can make a big difference when you're reading. If you haven't got much space, the KVART light is a slimline floor lamp, with an adjustable arm, that will fit perfectly next to any armchair, so you don’t have to strain your eyes any longer.

There’s never a plug where you want one, is there? Thankfully there’s no need for power sockets with our cost effective STÖPEN battery candles. And they look beautiful inside ENSIDIG transparent glass vases and jars, bringing pockets of warm, cosy light into your room in the cold autumn months.

Dinner parties are about creating the perfect atmosphere and the SINNERLIG pendant light will do just that. Whether it’s the warm welcoming glow, or the directed lights, you can create a cosy atmosphere in any dining room and its quality look will have your guests back before you know it.
