Add rechargeable lightbulbs

Keep your home in a welcoming glow with this innovative rechargeable LED bulb that tops up whenever the lamp it’s fixed to is turned on. If there’s a power cut, just press the bulb’s button and it will shine bright, even if you unscrew it. What a bright idea!

Switch to patterned lampshades

Give your table lamps and ceiling lights a fast, affordable and fashionable refresh by switching shades. The new RYRA range of lampshades has an on-trend chequered design in warming reds and blues that create a cosy, welcome glow.

    Try a tech-smart torch

    Never get caught out without batteries again. Instead, charge up this clever, more environmentally friendly torch at the mains and it’ll switch on automatically in the event of a power cut. When you need a portable light, simply disconnect it from its charger and you’re good to go.
