Choosing The Right Fittings And Lamps For Your Decorative Lighting

25 August 2023
Want to change the look of an entire room by simply changing a light bulb? With one change of bulb, you can update the feel of your home and give a fitting an updated current look.

Our exciting range of decorative bulbs captures current design trends with gold, black, smoked glass colours, and mesh finishes.

The best part is they can be used with existing fittings to instantly update the look of the piece. As soon as you want to update the look again – simply change the bulb out.

Keep reading to discover our new range of bulbs for existing fittings, plus our recommendations for fittings.

Lamps & Fittings

Our exciting new range of bulbs is inspired by current trends for industrial-looking lighting, black and gold tones, and simple modern finishes.

Super simple to use, our new bulbs fit into any E27 fitting, meaning you can use them with lamps you already have to give an instant update.

However, we have a few combinations of bulbs and lamps that we particularly love.

dulwich table lampTake the Dulwich table lamp in black, for example. This simple, modern lamp looks great with any bulb, but add one of our brilliant new bulbs – we love the gold mesh effect globe bulb, and the finished effect is striking.

The gold mesh effect bulb has an E27 fitting so can be used with any lamp that has the correct fitting and also works in ceiling pendants. The Dulwich fitting also comes as a floor lamp too so you could put matching bulbs across your whole range of lighting for a coordinated look. Or, go for a mix-and-match look by choosing any of our other bulbs.

If you are interested in how our new bulbs work with ceiling pendants, we have a couple of great combinations to inspire you.

Take the Spinny Five Light pendant, for example. This style of ceiling lighting has been popular for a couple of years now and we don’t see any sign of it falling out of favour soon – likely due to its versatility.

When styling the Spinny ceiling pendant, you can use all matching bulbs or a mix-and-match of our new lamp bulbs to give an exciting look, particularly if the arms of the pendant are hung at different heights.

Suggested bulbs that work great with this product are our Giant LED balloon deco filament bulbs in amber, Giant LED spiral filament globes in clear, and the Giant LED balloon deco filament bulbs in smoked glass. This trio of bulbs used in conjunction with the Spinny light fitting are a winning combination.

Another favourite is the Spinny 5 light bar pendant, combined with wire mesh drum lamp bulbs. You could choose either all gold bulbs, all black, or a combination of both bulbs, as shown in the image below.

Another fitting our wire mesh drum lamps look great with is the Armstrong six-light floor lamp. Again, using the same lamp bulbs in the floor lamp as the ones on the ceiling pendant would give a space a brilliantly coordinated look.

How To Choose Fittings & Lamps

As mentioned, our new lamp bulbs can be used with a wide range of E27 fittings. E27 is one of the most common fittings so these bulbs open a whole world of possibilities.

Choosing the right fittings and lamps simply comes down to the look you want. You can buy the lamps alone to update your existing fittings or choose from any of our corresponding fittings.
