Fixtures That Play Nicely With Exposed LEDs

I often hear people say they’d love to give a tired room a makeover, but that they just don’t have the funds or the energy. We all know what it’s like—your heart sinks as you walk in the door of the room; it’s looking stale and unloved. But I think a fantastic, pocket-friendly way to breathe new life into your living space is simply to choose a bright new on-trend light fixture, give the walls a lick of paint and throw some matching cushions on the sofa. It doesn’t have to take weeks or cost a fortune.

We can’t get enough of the super-cool LED filament globes right now, so I’ve put together a few of our funkiest pendant lights which are designed to show filament globes off, and you’ll soon see just how easy it is to transform your room.

Thoroughly Modern Makeover

There’s nothing like a splash of colour to breathe new life into your home, and anyone with an eye for design should check out the Red Tate Modern Pendant Light. With its bold aluminium red shade and cool beige interior, this glossy and curvaceous fixture makes the perfect eye-catching centrepiece for any room. For anyone on a budget, switching to LED lighting means you’ll save back the cost of the fixture and the globe by reducing your electricity bills, giving you just the excuse you need to transform an extra room.


Orange: The New Black

Orange is totally on-trend at the moment, and at Lighting Illusions, we’ve got an absolute cracker for your outdoor living space. The Orange Urban Industrial Pendant Light just ticks so many boxes: industrial chic, ideal for showing off your filament globes, suitable for indoors and outdoors: it’s got everything. The black cord and stainless steel clips will give you an enviable urban edge, and the warmth of the orange stainless steel shade is the bright note you need to create that special atmosphere.

Clear As Day

If you haven’t visited any lighting stores this season, you might not be aware of just how much new design is available, and that’s why shopping for your lighting online is such a great idea. There’s so much to choose from, and it’s all there at your fingertips. For a fantastic new look for your bedroom or hallway, I’m really keen on the Toledo Clear Glass Round Pendant. Picture this fixture in a space with smoky grey walls and the cool glow of a filament globe. With its chrome canopy and clear cord, nothing distracts from the elegant design of this light. Add colour to the room with a bold red rug and you’re on your way to giving your home the wow factor we all want.

With the new high efficiency LED filament globes, there’s no longer a good reason to say ‘no’ to the exciting trend toward retro, exposed globes. Get on board with one of these striking pendents, or browse our site for hundreds more options.
