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 fan­ta­sy­
