Summer Heat

November 2018

As the days get longer and the thermostat reaches those unbelievable high highs with no signs of a southerly reprieve and the family huddles around a rotating pedestal fan, you start to wonder why you didn’t get around to it last summer……  installing a ceiling fan.

Most ceiling fans cost just 3 cents an hour to run making them the most economical way to keep cool air circulating in your home in summer. When paired with your air conditioner it can reduce the running cost by up to 40% and even helping circulate heated air in the winter, a ceiling fan is a simple addition that can make all the difference.

Whether you are after a minimal modern design that will soundlessly disappear into the ceiling, an edgy industrial wind whirler or a bold Bahamas style feature fan there are countless designs to cool you down this summer. There is even a broad range of outdoor fans for your patios, decks and cabanas. There is no need to be a sweaty hot mess this summer and don’t forget we are here to help with all the technical and creative questions you may have.

Downlights + Christmas!

October 2018

A conversation about downlights would normally draw eye-rolls and yawns.  But folks, no more! These are exciting times as downlights break out of their square grid layouts and transform themselves into main players.  Robert has been doing some amazing things with downlights – instead of lighting your hallway, lighting your artwork using the VARANO, and instead of hiding downlights away, surface mounting the KINETIC in a contrasting colour.  Come and have a chat with him if you’re in a downlight rut.


We know it’s only October but if that pre-Christmas spruce-up is on your mind, you’ll need to get your lighting organised tout de suite - many lights have a lead-time of up to six weeks.  If you are planning the Christmas soiree at your place this year, bring your plans and mood boards to us in October and we’ll get you organised with time to spare.

Bedside Pendants

September 2018

Lighting a bedside is one of the slightly trickier decorating conundrums.  Any light needs to look good, give enough light to read by and not take up too much space on the bedside table.   You can see why it poses a problem.

A sleek task light will often do the trick but is not really decorative enough for most people, and a table lamp fits the decorative brief, but needs to be tall enough and bright enough to cast light onto whatever you’re reading, without taking up too much room.  Another option, however, is to forget a lamp all together and hang a pendant by the bedside.  It solves the space on the table issue, and the light will be overhead making it perfect for reading.  On top of all that, it can look absolutely smashing!  The Dobi, Dora, Rain, and Ling are all great options.  Have a look at them here:
