The art and science of lighting
Whether you want to create a warm glow for a romantic dinner, add a decorative touch to a coffee table or brighten up a child’s bedroom, lighting is one of the quickest and easiest ways to transform the look and feel of any room. Here are a few things to consider when choosing new lights for your home.
It’s all about balance
Style is important, but so is functionality. Aim to get the perfect balance of both by choosing lights that allow you to change up the ambience as and when you need to. For instance, during a cosy family dinner, you may want soft, warm lighting. But afterwards, when you need to do work or the kids want to play, you’ll need clean, bright lighting – all in the same space. Also, you’ll need to choose lighting that will work with the rest of your decor and reflect your unique taste.
How light affects mood
Lighting isn’t just about aesthetics. Did you know that we, as humans, have a powerful connection to light? So much so that it can actually influence our mood and wellbeing, helping us to feel alert and awake in the morning, and calm and ready for bed at night.
If you’re looking for new lights for your bedroom or chillout areas, you may want to explore more advanced lighting options designed to positively impact your internal body clock and keep your sleeping pattern in check.
Why lighting is everything in Sweden
Lighting has always been a big part of our culture in Sweden – particularly in the forests of Småland where the winters are dark (even in the daytime!) and the summers are full of light. We’ve had to adapt our lighting more than many other places in the world, and because of that, we like to think we have a profound understanding of the impact on light in the home.
We’ve used this knowledge to shape and inspire our eclectic range of lights, with something to suit every style and space. So, whether your tastes are modern, minimalist or more eclectic, take a look at our lighting range to breathe new life – and light – into your home.
