Lighting: Give Your Room some Atmosphere

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about furnishing? A beautiful couch, a dining table with nice chairs, a practical sideboard - lighting is often forgotten. However, lamps are significantly responsible for the mood of a room. They make up a large part of the room’s atmosphere and give it its soul. The interplay of light and shadow gives depth, makes a room seem alive or quiet. That's why we recommend that you take your time when you think about the design of your lamps for your home. To help you with the decision-making process, we have collected everything you need to know about lighting and summarized all the information here for you.

Things to Keep in Mind When Buying Lighting

What is the purpose of the room you want to illuminate? What effect should it have on you? These are the two basic questions to consider when buying a lamp. LED lights are the ideal choice when it comes to lighting a workplace. LEDs have a bright and very clear light, which creates a perfect working environment. If you want to create a cozy ambience, look at our dimmable table lamps, groundlights and floor lamps. If you are in search of true all-rounders, pendants and ceiling lights are particularly suitable. They can be used both for basic lighting as well as a mood light. No matter what your personal taste in lighting is: we have endless choices for you.

Shape, Material and Color of Your Design Lamp

You have decided on a particular type of lighting? Then you now have the choice of a whole repertoire of lighting designs: classic or modern? Extravagant or simple? The times of simple wooden frames with lampshades made of glass or fabric are over. Designers have discovered new and innovative materials for themselves: concrete, knitwear, paper, feathers and much more. When it comes to lights, there are almost no limits. An example of innovative lighting design: The body of the Eclisse table lamp by manufacturer

Artemide is made of painted metal. The special feature is that the open sphere can be turned & thus reveals step by step the inner light bulb. This way, the intensity of a room's lighting can be controlled very easily. Design brand &Tradition combines classic design with new technology. With their Milk table lamp, the designers imitated the shape of a milking stool. The design lamp is made of hand-blown opal glass, the legs are made of untreated oak wood.

Which Lighting Should I Use for Which Room?

Different rooms require different lighting. Bathroom lights should at least have security class IP44. In this way you avoid an electric shock. If you're looking for lighting for your desk, make sure your desk lamp is steady. Ideally, the arm of your lamp can be moved so that you can provide ideal lighting with one touch. A tip for bedroom lighting: Use dimmable bulbs. Especially when going to bed and getting up, these are a great help, as your eyes can more easily get used to the light conditions. In the living room, the use of dimmable lamps is recommended as well, as they easily set the mood. Then nothing stands in the way of a cozy movie night with friends or family. Kitchen and dining room lighting should always be particularly bright. This way you can keep track of everything, when preparing meals and it tastes twice as good later.

Designer Lighting with LED: A Look into the Future

LED lighting divides people. Everyone agrees that they are good for the environment and your wallet, but nevertheless, not everyone wants to make friends with the successor of the light bulb. The biggest advantage of LED lights is that they have a much longer life. Even supporters of the classic light bulb like the designer Ingo Maurer have therefore committed themselves to the environmentally friendly alternative. One example for creative LED-lighting design is the My New Flame LED. The design lamp imitates real candlelight and was designed by Moritz Waldmeyer and created with the help of 128 small LEDs. The light-emitting diodes that imitate real candles can be recognized only when looking very closely. The biggest advantage of LEDs is that the lights are no fire hazard.
