Lighting is one of the most atmospheric elements in our homes but when it comes to personalising our decor, its potential is often overlooked. A well-chosen light fitting will not only illuminate your space, it can become a style statement in itself. “Table lamps and pendant lights provide a prime opportunity to add top notes of colour and sparkle to your rooms,” said Gabriel Byrne of Fantasy Lights. When it comes to individual style, Fantasy Lights’ new hand-blown glass range will allow you to create something quite unique. “Our system allows you to create an almost bespoke lamp or pendant,” said Gabriel “You can individualise your light by choosing the glass colour from a range that includes pink, amber, smoked and transparent. Then you can make it your own by adding your own choice of copper, brass or stainless steel finishes for the fittings,” he explains.
According to the experts, when it comes to lighting your home, there are two rules of thumb to remember. “Firstly, you should consider having a mix of light sources at different levels to create a flattering ambience,” said Gabriel. “Secondly, bear in mind that you will need appropriate task lighting for whatever you do in that room space, be it reading, cooking, dressing, etc.”
The range at Fantasy Lights showrooms in Walkinstown and Churchtown in Dublin now includes hand-blown table lamps and pendants. For more see fantasylights.com
