home: trend [ pretty pendants ]
In the last year or so we have seen a huge increase in lighting choices and especially alternatives to a traditional chandelier.
If you want to make a statement in 2018 its got to involve globes and orbs, plus a bit of bling! Copper and brass are still the most popular metal finishes, with frosted and smoked surrounds and bulbs, to echo a 1920s feel.
It’s all about the bold shapes that are created – straight arms and circles. Many of the pendants on the market are adjustable so you can find a perfect fit for any room.
We think this style works best over a dining table or in a hallway.

Arket has started to make a name for itself as a homeware destination. Their stripped back designs, muted colour pallete with heavy Swedish influences are certainly worth checking out.
We love these smoked glass vases, and at really good prices too.
