Q I’d like to get a new pen­dant that’s trendy but won’t date. What do you sug­gest?

With new light­ing ranges chang­ing sea­son­ally, there are lots to choose from. Globe-shaped pen­dants are a great choice, and can be clus­tered to high­light a point of in­ter­est in the room, such as a ta­ble or is­land.

Q How can I up­date the look of my light­ing in a way that’s quick and af­ford­able?

Chang­ing your lamp­shade for a new de­sign is a sim­ple and thrifty up­date for the sea­son. It will in­stantly re­ju­ve­nate a tired lamp base and trans­form the look of your whole room. Adding a new floor lamp to a pre­vi­ously un­lit cor­ner of a room of­fers both style and func­tion­al­ity, and in­vites you to see your space in a whole new light – lit­er­ally!

Q What can I do to save en­ergy and money?

Try switch­ing your light­ing to us­ing LED bulbs. This will help to save both money and power. Dur­ing au­tumn, we will see a wider choice of fil­a­ment LED bulbs, which will en­thuse those of you who like to have the el­e­gance of the fil­a­ment vis­i­ble or show­cased within a glass pen­dant.
