Holloways of Ludlow launched their latest lighting collection at the recent Clerkenwell Design Week and the mix on display encapsulated the wonderful, colourful, stylish choice of lighting we have at our beck and call just now to illuminate our homes.
They’ll be stocking more from France’s Jielde brand, which makes cast-metal floor, wall and desk lamps as well as these new pendants in their rainbow shades: it seems a shame to just choose one….:

Holloway’s of Ludlow’s own collection includes pendants with British spun-steel shades: I love this zingy yellow: ideal for adding that splash of hot colour into our all-white (or is it grey?) kitchens of 2013….

Another favourite (again from Holloways own line), are these simple glass pendants; they come in several shapes and the elegant design ensures the light would work perfectly in kitchens and hallways; the metalwork can be ordered in several different finishes from antique brass to polished nickel, which is helpful if your decor leans more towards either contemporary or traditional:

And created with sound environmental ideals by New Zealand-based designer David Trubridge is the delicate spherical Coral Light, below. Inspired by his time spent diving, the lights are made from either bamboo plywood or aluminium, and come in several sizes and colours.

As well as lighting, Holloways of Ludlow’s extensive collection includes ironmongery, from small pieces such as hooks and locks, door furniture and door handles, knobs and pulls, through to attractive light switches, as well as complete kitchens and bathrooms. See more here.
