Vitra Potence wall light
One of Jean Prouvé’s purist masterpieces, the Potence wall lamp is a streamlined and practical design that has been reduced to the essentials. It boasts a powder-coated steel arm and wall mount, with an oakwood handle and an E27 bulb.
Over two metres long, this unique, swivelling wall light performs the same function of a pendant light, its long arm allowing light to illuminate the middle of a dining table, or create a glow in a reading corner.
Nuura Liila wall light
Designed by Sofie Refer, the Nuura Liila is a statement wall light that creates glistening patterns when illuminated. Available in either optic or opal glass, the Lilia’s circular diffuser and metal back plate is simplistic yet sensuous, a truly elegant wall lighting design.
ferm LIVING Oyster wall light
The sculptural, organic from of this ferm LIVING wall light is reminiscent of oyster shells gathered at the beach. Made from casted, recycled aluminium with a textured surface, the Oyster wall light would be a stunning addition to any modern home.
With an LED light source hidden at its centre, the fluid curves of this design play with light and shadow, creating a design that is as much a piece of sculpture as it is a source of light.
Artemide NH wall light
Hanging from the wall like a beautiful pendant on a necklace, the Artemide NH wall light is a beautifully decorative wall light. It features a white, hand-blown glass diffuser and a brushed brass ‘hook’ which allows the lamp to hang, or to be supported on a horizontal surface.
Effortlessly adaptable, the clever design allows the user to position the light in multiple configurations, making it a surprisingly versatile wall lighting choice.
Foscarini Bahia wall light
Described by Foscarini as a harmony of light and shadows, the Bahia wall lamp is a large-scale wall lamp that creates a real focal point in a room. Constructed from three organic circular rings which emit a soft, glowing light, use alone or pair with the Bahia Mini for even more visual impact.
Nelson Bubble wall light
A mid-century icon, the Nelson Bubble lighting collection was designed by American designer George Nelson after he was inspired by a set of silk-covered Swedish hanging lamps. In this wall light version of the classic design, the spherical shade is suspended from a walnut wall mount and steel arm.
Part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, this is the perfect choice of wall light for mid-century design lovers.
Menu Cast sconce wall lamp
A petite wall light with a graphical expression, the Cast sconce wall lamp from MENU unites triangular, linear, and circular elements to create a distinctive geometric silhouette. Part of the wider Cast collection, this wall light perfectly complements the MENU Cast pendants but also works equally well on its own.
Designed by duo Thomas Chung & Jordan Murphy, the brushed brass and black cast aluminium come together to create a sophisticated design that works as well in the bedroom as it does in the hallway.
Tom Dixon Stone wall light
Carved from white Morwad marble, the Stone wall light from Tom Dixon is tough yet tactile, and filled with personality. The layered circular design has a central brass-tipped bulb which creates a sophisticated statement.
IP44 rated, this wall light is suitable for bathrooms, the perfect choice for creating a sense of contemporary luxury.
Flos 265 wall lamp
Designed by Paolo Rizatto for Flos, the 265 wall light creates a dramatic impact thanks to its outstretched steel arm. Sleek and minimal in style, this is the perfect choice for living rooms and dining rooms, working well as a replacement for a pendant light.
The 265 works with a counterweight, enabling the lamp to pivot left, right, upwards, and downwards. This allows the user to easily move the lamp into the desired position whilst also keeping the light perfect balanced.
Petite Friture Vertigo Nova wall lamp
The central, frosted LED module emits a delicate and atmospheric glow, perfect for illuminating a dining table or sofa.
Constructed using an ultra-light fibreglass hoop and ribbons of velvety polyurethane, the Vertigo Nova moves gently, reacting to the lightest of breezes and casting patterns onto its surroundings.
