The Bedside Edit
Create a restful retreat with functional yet ambient beside illumination.
Whether you are winding down with a good book or waking early before the sun has broken, choosing efficient bedside lighting is key in achieving a desirable and practical bedroom environment that reflects your life and style. From table to wall and pendant lights, each present a distinct quality that can enhance your bedside routine.
"The light pattern of day and night is hardwired into our brains, and it is an inescapable fact that is a huge part of our wellbeing. Says Design Director James Bassant. He continues, "For millennia the setting sun changed the colour of the sky and the quantity of light and as mammals we responded by preparing for sleep. So, when it comes to our own bedtime routines, anyway that we can replicate these natural lighting rhythms through the lighting designs we choose, will aid good sleep".
Well-placed pendant lights on either side of a bed not only creates the feel of luxury, but the low-level light saves space on the bedside table. Featuring dimming capabilities and a fully adjustable cable, our Ginestra design is a popular choice for bedroom lighting, delivering ambient illumination that can be customised to achieve the desired mood. "To truly personalise your experience, look to install separate switches on either side of the bed so you have complete control without disturbing one another. An ideal solution for night-owls or early risers".
A wall mounted light is essential for any bedtime reader. Sleek and compact, our Ascoli Single features a rotational head that retains architectural appeal while providing essential illumination through a single directional beam of light. The Ascoli is a contemporary and versatile design that retains all the tradition of a classic task light. For those looking for a more cohesive lighting scheme, opt for Joel, one of our signature wall light designs that provides overhead illumination. Pair with our coordinating Joel pendant, table and floor lamp for a scheme filled with retro charm.
If you are looking for a less functional approach to bedside lighting, look to the Amas, a delicate wall light design that emits a soft ambient glow and works seamlessly within any space or existing scheme. Reminiscent of Art Deco designs with a softly curved, tiered shape, its unobtrusive illumination casts a gentle a wash of light up and down, ideal for creating a warm and relaxing environment within any bedroom. "As day turns to night, be conscious of how much light you actually need and how you use your space. I always find it surprising how little light one needs in the evening unless you are reading for example, so perfectly placed wall lights are a practical and style driven alternative or companion to the classic bedside lamp".
