1 SWITCHED ON

Light up dark cor­ners with this so­phis­ti­cated floor lamp made from an­tique brass metal with five glass bub­ble lights that cas­cade in a spi­ral down the pole. Hux­ley floor lamp, £195; Draper arm­chair, £1,299; both John Lewis

2 ART OF GLASS

Th­ese pretty pen­dant lights are in­spired by Vic­to­rian shades spot­ted in an­tique shops in Venice, but they’ve been given a mod­ern makeover with just a touch of frill. Their del­i­cate form lends a sub­tle el­e­gance to a room and they’d look beau­ti­ful sus­pended low over a dress­ing ta­ble or bed­side ta­ble. Chintz bowl light, £395; Plate in Blush, £445; both Cu­ri­ousa & Cu­ri­ousa

3 OLD SCHOOL

Th­ese mouth-blown glass pen­dants are a rein­ter­pre­ta­tion of the clas­sic school lights found in 1920s class­rooms, li­braries and re­fec­to­ries. With a translu­cent shade, they work well with a fil­a­ment-ex­posed light bulb and give off a won­der­ful am­bi­ent light. Glass School pen­dant, size 2, clear glass, £345 each, Davey Light­ing

4 BRASS BEAUTY

Framed in an­tiqued brass­work, this strik­ing pen­dant is de­signed to take cen­tre stage. Sus­pend above a kitchen is­land or hang low over a dining ta­ble for in­ti­mate light. Go for LED fil­a­ment bulbs, as they not only look good but give off a lovely, warm light, too.

Lang and Long Luxor pen­dant, £330, Pooky
