A couple of months ago we kicked off a roundup series focusing on awesome locally available accent lighting.
In our first list, “10 Amazingly Cool Standing Lamps” we sourced and selected ten stunning floor lamps for your home – from quirky and playful, to chic and trendy. Our second instalment, 8 Strikingly Trendy Hanging Lamps, focused on pendant lighting.
Today we continue our search to find what other awesome light fittings the South African shelves have to offer.
We did a little online search to see how many trendy, attention-grabbing local wall lights we could drum up. Here is our roundup of seven contemporary and chic wall lights for your home…
7 Contemporary & Chic Wall Lights:
Alfie Wall Sconce
Finely crafted local design at its best. Hoi P’loy’s beautiful Alfie Wall Sconce is hand-crafted from 100% brass. No need to call the electrician or chase into the walls – simply hang up, plug in and tug on the cord to switch on or off. Oh, and this light fitting looks amazing with one of Hoi P’loy’s old school Edison-type bulbs. Available from Hoi P’loy
Tempo Wall Light
This anglepoise-like wall lamp has oodles of minimalist Scandi appeal. We love the contrasting dove grey shade and the adjustable wooden arms with butterfly nut detail. Available online through Superbalist
Beat Wall Light
A variation on the famous original Tom Dixon Beat Light, made from spun brass, the Beat Wall Light incorporates the familiar hand beaten black shade with a solid brass dimmer dial. Available from Crema
Moa Bedroom Light
Bofred’s striking monochrome Moa Bedroom Light consists of a black coated aluminium frame and lampshade with matching black fabric cable. Available from Bofred
Stenson Wall Lamp
If you are looking for a real statement piece, the Stenson Wall Lamp with its black shade and swivelling wooden concertina mechanism arm is the show-stopper light fixture for you. Available from La Grange
Alex Wall Light
Add a bit of vintage industrial flare to your interior with the Alex Wall Light with its wide glass shade and brass & black metal fittings. Available online through Superbalist
Churchill Wall Lamp
With its green glass shade and long brass arm the Churchill Wall Lamp is a wonderful take on the old military desk light. Available from Pezula
It is that time of the year again; Decorex Cape Town 2017 is just a stone’s throw away. The lifestyle expo will kick off on Thursday the 27th of April 2017 at the CTICC and conclude on Sunday the 3rd.
If you have been wondering what to expect from this year’s expo here are a few anticipated highlights as suggested by the Decorex team:
WHAT TO EXPECT AT DECOREX CAPE TOWN 2017…
“In line with the 2017 theme, ‘Make your space your living dream’, visitors to South Africa’s premier décor, design and lifestyle exhibition will be immersed in natural fabrics, revitalising tones and quality products all centred around a vision of reclaiming a space of sanctuary, disconnected from the relentless noise and distraction of the modern world.
Cape Town, which leads the way in décor excellence nationwide, can expect to see only the highest quality products and décor set to international standard, as well as the country’s most creative designers who will be showcasing the latest trends.
Visitors can interact with the country’s top designers where the latest trends will be accessibly featured in a variety of room settings. The Decorex Designer Spotlight will showcase the work of iconic Cape Town designer Dylan Thomaz while stylish living ideas can be picked up at the Decorex Trend House.
The Decorex SA Trend House is a project which gives the audience a visual representation of how the 2017 trends can be realised in any living space by creating a home using carefully selected @home furnishings.
Anyone looking for a change in hue can visit the Plascon stand where the highly anticipated 2017 colour forecast will be revealed. And for the latest in international-level kitchen products and appliances, visitors are invited to the Franke Kitchen Trend Project where four local kitchen designers will compete to create the ultimate ‘Simplicity in Design’ kitchen.
Adding value to the home with insightful décor and gardening tips is the not-to-be-missed Builders DIY Theatre. Leaders in the DIY industry, as well as a number of celebrity speakers, will share advice on home and garden revamping, general improvements and fix-ups with live demonstrations throughout the four-day exhibition.”
