I always tell my clients to invest in lights. A beautiful quality lamp is for ever.
You move it around, you change its place, you take it with you when you move and worse case scenario you store it somewhere until, inevitably, you find a place for it again.
Quality lights are better made and the details are fundamental in such a simple yet prominent object in any space.
At the end of the day lights are most lit things in your house.
Quality lamps are also generally sturdier, an important characteristic above all when speaking about floor and wall lights.
The good news is that you don’t have to spend a fortune to buy a quality light. Brands like Artemide, Flos, Foscarini, Gubi have some iconic pieces that won’t break the bank and can be mixed with cheaper lights from Ikea or Muuto’s or Normann Copenhagen’s.
Then there are some lights that make a statement, that decorate the entire space with their presence, that are memorable.
These lights sometimes have important prices obviously because they don’t just fulfil their duty but they fill the room, they are sculptures like this one called Coco by Larose Guyon, a piece of suspended glowing jewellery.
