Living Etc - - HOMES / ETC -

Ev­ery­one knows that the best way to ut­terly – and in­stantly – trans­form a space is through clever light­ing. Rather like a film score, when done well, the right light­ing can ef­fort­lessly en­hance the drama and dra­mat­i­cally shift a mood. When it doesn’t work, it can ruin the clever­est ideas.

With its breath­tak­ing se­lec­tion of iconic de­signs, Heal’s has long been the de­fin­i­tive start­ing place for all mod­ern and con­tem­po­rary light­ing. The store has a distin­guished history for be­ing at the cut­ting edge of de­sign – today it works with names such as Tom Dixon, An­gle­poise and Flos. Need a clas­sic stem floor light, an ex­posed bulb or a cen­tre­piece pen­dant or chan­de­lier to make a state­ment? Then visit the light­ing show­room in Heal’s flag­ship Tot­ten­ham Court Road store (where you will get au­thor­i­ta­tive advice on how best to light your space), or browse for in­spi­ra­tion on­line at heals.com.

heal’s Fes­ti­val OF Light

To cel­e­brate its role at the fore­front of light­ing de­sign, Heal’s is or­gan­is­ing an exclusive event in Oc­to­ber, The Fes­ti­val of Light. Win­dows and the en­tire ground floor will dis­play its ex­ten­sive range – and will in­clude ar­eas cu­rated by lead­ing light­ing de­sign­ers. High­lights in­clude an exclusive ‘Make Your Own’ An­gle­poise® Stu­dio col­lec­tion, new prod­ucts from in­no­va­tive brands such as wrong.lon­don and a preview of new de­signs from state­ment chan­de­lier de­signer Charles Lethaby, which are exclusive to Heal’s.

…and Meet the in­dus­try Lu­mi­nar­ies

Want to know about light­ing your space or the fu­ture of mod­ern light­ing de­sign?
