​Wall Lights: The Contemporary Lighting Choice

Step into the 21st Century and update your home with a contemporary wall light. Often thought of as old fashioned, modern wall lights are having something of a renaissance in recent years. We are now firmly in the land of bright modern metallics, clear cut lines, angular shades and ultra stylish designs.

If you're wondering what use you could have for a wall light in 2019, let me enlighten you...

They save floor space. Instead of a floor lamp, or a side table with a lamp, a wall light will work well in a smaller space to add light and atmosphere, without the need to use up precious space on the floor that might be better used for an additional armchair or footstool.

They add atmosphere to a room without the need for a bright overhead light. You can add uplights, downlights, or both, to create accents in a room by adding pairs or larger sets of wall lights.

Contemporary wall lights can also be design features in themselves. Modern wall lights can be extremely stylish and can bring a room together, especially by choosing a bright metallic finish and clean line to complement your decor.

Lastly, wall lights are excellent at providing task lighting. If you love nothing more than to curl up in a corner with a good book, then a wall light could be just the thing to light up your literary world. Fancy some knitting, painting or jewellery making? Get yourself the right wall light for the task and you can spend hours without worrying about shadows or fading light.

We have hand picked a selection of customer favourites to inspire your winter wall light choices.

This gorgeous galley style wall lamp has a modern painted nickel finish, which is contrasted with the copper detail arm and inner. The open bowl shaped shade allows for a broad even light, though if you'd like more control for adding atmosphere, this industrial feel wall light can also be used with a dimmer switch.

For clean lines with a hint of old style retro, these antique brass lantern style wall lights with clear glass shades make a minimalist statement and could be used in sets in a hallway, kitchen or dining room. You have a choice of shade shapes with either the globe or the dome, giving you a little extra choice over your preferred style or you could mix and match for a more eclectic feel.
