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

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
