Here at beut we believe that lighting is just as important and impactful as an eye-catching wallpaper or other furnishings within your home. In fact, it is a piece of interior architecture that should be chosen wisely. Whether you want to light up your desk space or cast a warming glow over your living area, we have everything you need, informing and inspiring you to make that all important decision.

When choosing your perfect light, you need to consider whether you want to make a statement, if you need your light to be ambient or rather a light that will assist you while working. Importantly, think about where your light will be situated. Will it be indoors, in a high moisture interior such as the bathroom or even outdoors?

Statement Lighting

Lighting doesn’t only need to be functional. Creating a statement with lighting can be the most influential and memorable piece of your home or interior space to you and your guests. It can finish a room off exquisitely, whilst also acting as a structural piece of art.

We think that you can add statement lighting into any area of your home. Whether you want to create the ‘wow’ factor in a commercial or residential space, we offer many lighting designs that we believe will create a magnificent display in any interior space. Whether you choose an iconic pendant light, grande pendant system or rather a cluster of similar pendants, there is a design for everyone. Why not suspend a pendant system over your kitchen island or at the center of your hallway? Or, cluster a small selection of pendant lights to illuminate your staircase. Commercial areas benefit greatly from statement lighting. The grande, illuminating effect creates a warming and invigorating environment to welcome guests. Spaces such as bars and restaurants can suspend multiple pendant lights above the bar to enhance the main focal point of its interior space.

Discover some iconic lighting designs that we believe will create a stunning statement within your space.

Ambient Lighting

Every interior needs light! Not only does lighting serve a practical and functional need, it also is a great way to add style and personality into your home. Ambient lighting replaces the natural light when it is not present. Although generally only used within the darker hours, ambient lighting is the most common form of lighting that the majority of us choose to illuminate our homes with.

Often pendant lights, ambient lighting is the perfect way to light up the center of a living room, bedroom or dining room. Situate above a dining table for the ultimate focal piece. Furthermore, why not cluster a selection of pendant lights together for a show-stopping showpiece that can be a statement even when the light is switched off. The wide variety of ambient lighting that is available makes it the perfect choice for any style of interior space. Not only are pendant lights suitable for our residential homes, they are also widely used within commercial areas as well such as bars, restaurants, retail stores and offices. What’s more, chandeliers can also be an appropriate choice of ambient lighting.

Here are just a few of our designer lights that we think would provide you with the most stunning ambient light.

Task Lighting

Working and studying at home comes with the high demand for task lighting. Task lighting is great for when you need direct and focused light for a particular task such as working on a computer, writing or reading. Task lighting does not need to just be functional, it can be highly stylish as well. For example, a desk lamp or table lamp will assist you as you work at your desk in the evening or as you read before sleep at nighttime. What’s more, a variety of desk lamps have the ability to adjust the direction of their light so that you can freely choose the position you want to read or work in. Not only do they have the high functionality to move, most table lamps are dimmable which means you can set the light to your own atmospheric requirements.

Task lighting can also come in the form of a floor lamp or wall light where it can be positioned behind a sofa or armchair providing you with the perfect glow to enjoy a spot of reading.

Explore some of our favourite lighting designs that are perfect for when you want to study hard into the night.

Bathroom Lighting

Before you choose your ideal bathroom light, you must consider the safety of your decision first. When choosing your bathroom light, please make sure that it has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of at least IP44. This will make sure your light is protected from water splashes.

Wall lights, flush ceiling lights and spot lights are a great choice for bathrooms as not only they look great, they also come compact with no hanging wires or outstanding edges to worry about. Just because a bathroom provides you with slightly less choice in lighting, you can still find a light to create a magnificent impact in your room. Explore our bathroom lighting collection to find your dream bathroom light.

Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting is just as important as interior lighting in our opinion. It can provide you with a serene and tranquil space outside to enjoy outdoor dinner parties and barbeques with friends and family. Nowadays, the designer lighting industry has offered us with many unique designs for our outdoor spaces including wall lamps, floor lamps, table lights and even the odd outdoor pendant light.

Likewise to bathroom lighting, outdoor lighting also needs to have an IP rating of at least IP44 to protect themselves from general water splashes and general wear and tear of the outdoors.

Please note that when installing outdoor lighting, all wiring must be protected and metalwork earthed.

Understand Ingress Protection Ratings

IP ratings are split into two parts. The first digit relates to the ingress of particles and ranges from 0 (no protection) to 6 (dust tight). The second digit represents the ingress of moisture and spans from 0 (no protection) to 8 (protection from complete submersion under pressure).

Making sure the IP rating is right for your space before you purchase any light, it is undeniably one of the most important factors to consider.

Choose A Bulb That’s Right For You And Your Space

Incandescent Bulbs

Commonly used, incandescent bulbs are crafted with a filament wire to cast a warming glow.

CFL Bulbs

Compact Fluorescent Lamps are also known as energy saving bulbs. Although they give off a similar glow to incandescent bulbs, they use up to 70% less energy, meaning you are saving money whilst doing your bit for the planet. What’s more, CFL bulbs are safer to handle as they produce less heat.

LED Bulbs

Not only are they extremely eco-friendly, they are also one of the longer-lasting bulbs that you can use. These bulbs can last up to a whopping twenty five years. LED bulbs use up to 90% les energy than incandescent bulbs, whilst emitting a soft warm glow into your interior space.

Halogen Bulb

Emitting a cooler, white light, halogen bulbs are crafted from high-grade glass to tolerate high temperatures, meaning that they can become too hot to handle. However, they are slightly more eco-friendly than an incandescent bulb as they use 20% less energy.

We hope our lighting guide has informed and inspired you to make your decision on the perfect lighting design for you and your space. Explore our whole designer lighting collection for more stunning designs from a wide variety of prestigious designers including Tom Dixon, GANT and Fritz Hansen.

Ferm Living noticed Luise Vindahl’s creative passion of vegetarianism, health and superfoods, from the blog that this talented creative established back in 2009. Her kitchen portrays a stunning composition of some of Ferm Living’s finest designs. The Danish design brand caught up with Louise on a sunny summer’s morning to discuss her interests that are intertwined into this gorgeous kitchen design.

A superb creator of a blog, five cookbooks, an app and a range of social media channels, Luise has an underlying talent of a fantastic Interior Designer too, as we can see from her home. Luise, her husband and children take ultimate pride in the home that they live in.

Dedicating most of her time to her newfound love of vegetarianism, Luise spends most of her days on Green Kitchen Stories. In her own words, “Green Kitchen Stories is like a fourth child – or, maybe we should say our first? Whether we gather around our dining table at home or are out travelling and trying new dishes, Green Kitchen Stories is always with us. It is part of our family.”

The cooling mint coloured kitchen is the perfect representation of her self-made business as well as portraying a calming and tranquil atmosphere, ideal for cooking up a storm surrounded by family. We love the way that Luise has displayed random objects around her kitchen. Exotic vegetables are set out like ornaments, whilst serving accessories are placed conveniently on the edge of the stunningly smooth, granite worktops.

Not only has the homeowner decided to create a statement of her kitchen with flamboyant artwork designs, she has also chosen a simplistic yet highly stylish pendant lighting configuration from Ferm Living’s Collect series. The stunning light casts a warming glow on to the top of her work surfaces as she prepares heart-warming meals for her family and friends.

Luise has passed her passion onto her children, who adore creating new and exciting recipies as much as she does. The bright colours and spacious layout of this interior space, makes it the perfect family friendly kitchen.

The charming brass door handles on the cupboards are a subtle yet contemporary and attractive detail situated around the kitchen.

In keeping with the vibe of this kitchen space, natural elements such as firewood and herbs as been decoratively stored and displayed to invite a fresh and invigorating feeling. Draped gently over the side of the kitchen is Ferm Living’s Hale Tea Towel. Functional as well as decorative, this textile piece is an essential to a busy cook.

Showcasing one of Luise’s healthy smoothie recipies, the Ferm Living Ripple Carafe Set is not only a stylish serving accessory, it will also make the ideal gift to a loved one. This award-winning design doubles up as a carafe as well as a stunning drinking glass.

This house is full of architectural statements. For example, the fireplace nestled in the corner of this living space is a gorgeous relic that has time travelled into this 21st century styled home. A quaint children’s desk has been positioned by the wall to keep Luise’s children occupied as she works up a sweat over the stove. An eye-catching, pink piece of art adds a pop of colour into this beige painted room.

We hope you have enjoyed exploring this beautiful home as much as we have.

 

We are proud to present Fritz Hansen’s full range of designer and contemporary furniture. From 3 seater sofas and lounge chairs to dining chairs and foot stools, the fantastic Danish design brand Fritz Hansen, have curated the most stunning furniture collection to provide your interior space with upmost style and functionality.

Whether you desire a cool and collected interior or a bright and funky space, the furniture range from Fritz Hansen offers many eye-catching colours such as blood orange and vivid red as well as softer shades of cream and grey. Above you can see the Ro Sofa, Pot Chair and Lune Sofa showcasing a stunning shade of orange, perfect for creating a sunny interior space.

Not only do the design-led pieces within this range make great home additions, the versatility in some of the designs make them the perfect statements for commercial spaces to. What about a collection of Pair Chairs for the ideal, comfortable conference arrangement? Or how about to add a highly stylish presence around a meeting table?

We have fallen in love with this beautiful pretty in pink shade that is seen throughout the whole furniture collection. Fritz Hansen strive to create iconic pieces such as the Favn Sofa that offers design enthusiasts with unique shapes and styles to contour their interior space. Many of the pieces within the range can be paired together at ease. For example, the Fri Easy Lounge Chair has been lovingly situated next to the Planner Coffee Table.

You could enjoy a cosy evening in or a sophisticated evening out on the Plenum Sofa. The famous design can be used both privately and commercially for any dining or leisurely needs. Likewise, icons like the Swan Chair pose as perfect pieces to relax in. Other dining designs such as the Ant Chair has been designed to fit into almost any interior space.

A simple, wooden dining table such as the Essay Table accommodates most dining chair designs. The Sammen Chair is not only highly stylish, it has also been crafted with the finest textile materials to provide you with ultimate comfort and luxury.

The way you tell a story with furniture throughout your home, tells your guests a lot about you. Whether you choose to mix and match items, like the above homeowner has done with their collection of Grand Prix Chairs or pair siblings together as demonstrated by the PK11 Chair, Fritz Hansen provides you with a vast amount of choice to choose from.

Don’t let the popping wallpaper in the background distract you from the stunning combination that Fritz Hansen have pieced together with the PK54 Table and the small collection of No1 Nendo Chairs.

What’s you style? Sophisticated or casual? No matter what dining table you have in your interior currently, we believe that all the dining chairs that we have on offer from Fritz Hansen will finish your dining space off perfectly. Featured above are the Little Giraffe Chair and the extremely famous Drop Chair, designed by the prestigious designer, Arne Jacobsen.

A pop of colour has been introduced into these interiors by the Oksen Lounge Chair, Nap Chair and Swan Chair. They have been surrounded by darker features such as the Lissoni Sofa and Dot Stool that all play a huge part in the comfort and functionality of the home.

Once again, Fritz Hansen have utilized a wide variety of bright colours in this space to illuminate the sheer beauty and detail incorporated into their designs.

Think twice about what you consider the pieces of art in these interior spaces. We think that the leather Drop Chair and the jazzy Egg Chair are more artistic than the pieces of artwork on the wall.

The traditional styled PK31 Sofa seen to the right sits as if it has been a part of its interior for years.

Sometimes we think that it is totally necessary to have three side tables to display and store your items rather than just one on its own. That is why we believe the PK71 Nesting Tables are perfect. Alternatively, a solid wooden side table such as the Tray Table is equally as useful.

As said before, Fritz Hansen only craft their pieces out of the highest quality materials and textile finishes. A couple of our favourites are the Series 7 Chair in velvet as well as the Fri Easy Chair.

Here, the PK80 Daybed has been adorned with some of the most luxurious soft furnishings by Fritz Hansen, including the Vertigo and Tassel Cushion.

We think that library spaces would be even more popular if they were filled with designer pieces such as the Via57 Chair.

The PK22 Easy Chair is the perfect chair to sit back and relax and admire the beauty of the rest of your interior space.

The China Chair and PK24 Lounge Chair are perfect examples of the true quality and design-led enthusiasm of Fritz Hansen’s pieces.

The Planner Shelving by Fritz Hansen is both a stylish and functional way to display your everyday items. Available in a variety of configurations, the Planner Shelving is a versatile design that will suit most office and living interiors.

Have you found the perfect piece for your interior space yet? If not, explore the rest of the fantastic furniture collection from Fritz Hansen.

Standing proud to the side of the room is the JWDA Floor Lamp. Cleverly, the designer has pieced this designer lighting piece with the brand new and revolutionary Androgyne Lounge Table. The soft sandy colours introduce a relaxing feel to this lounge space.

Another example where the Nimbus Mirror has created not only a functional and attractive aesthetic, but also a feature of art.

Designed by Studio Kaksikko, the Ridge Vase by the fantastic Danish designers Muuto, is an extraordinary vase that presents you with new ways to display your beautiful bunches of flowers and florals, with a sculptural expression and an artistic flare. Come on a journey with us to seek the wonders of design and manufacturing behind the stunning Ridge Vase.

Muuto took a trip to the factory, set in Alcobaca – a western city of central Portugal, to explore the interesting journey of the Ridge Vase. The city is situated in a gorgeous valley alongside the rivers of Alcoa and Baca, from where the city takes its name. Once Studio Kaksikko were satisfied with their mock-up, made out of paper, they aspired to craft the stunning design into a ceramic vase.

As you can see below, the Joao factory uses molds to sculpt these fantastic objects. Specializing in mold making, this factory was established 40 years ago in the Portuguese city, where 15 000 people choose to live.

After the first mold was created, the manufacturer continued to create the mother mold. The mother mold features four handmade sections of the design to ensure an impeccable precise result. From here on in, multiple molds are made to make sure that all dimensions and precious details are not lost and are perfectly translated into the final piece.

Inspired by a façade of a utility structure that they witnessed in Paris, this design depicts simple detailing with an architectural expression.

The designers stated that they “sought to combine its visual appeal with the usability for placing flowers in a linear formation rather than a circular formation”.

The molds of this design can be used between 50 and 70 times. This ensures that every piece is made to the highest quality and that the details that make this design so worthy are recreated perfectly every time.

Thoughtful design elements make this piece functional as well as highly stylish. For example, the small ridge on either side of the vase allows you to move it around as you desire.

The Ridge Vase continues its journey to a second factory situated a 30 minute drive away. This factory consists of a small team of 70 employees – each one taking pride in the award-winning designs that they contribute towards.

This is where the idea behind the Ridge Vase becomes a reality. Liquid clay is carefully poured into the plaster molds, transforming the liquid into the beautiful and rigid shape that the Ridge Vase is so loved for. The mold is left for two hours, before turning upside down to remove any excess clay. The mold is opened and then fired at 1000 degrees Celsius for eight hours. The vase is stamped with Muuto’s iconic logo on the bottom.

At this point, the off-white version is lovingly glazed on its interior along with a water-based coating on the outside. This water-based coating enhances the structure of its surface. The vase is raw to the touch yet presents its viewer with a smooth and wavy surface, reminding us of the terracotta textures in the Mediterranean islands.

Finally, these spectacular pieces are fired for the last time at 1100 degrees Celsius for another 8 hours. For the perfect finish, the vases are then dipped into a water-based solution to close any porous holes.

And there you have it! Your Ridge Vase is perfectly packaged in its beautiful packaging and is ready for you to place on your sideboard, shelf, dining table or even give to a loved one as a thoughtful gift.

This vase is available in two different sizes, including both terracotta and off-white shades.

Have we tempted you with the Ridge Vase? If we have, head on over to our site to find out more information on this jaw-dropping design and enjoy the new lease of life that this vase will give your home.

Well, where do we start? This house has our eyes wandering everywhere. It really is a place of imagination and an exploration of unique yet highly fashionable interior spaces. This Stockholm based ‘Sculptor’s Residence’ shows off creativity that is exhibited in each of its rooms.

The exhibition space that was created between the two fantastic design brands Menu and Dux, offers its visitor many sights of their award-winning designs situated in many different areas of this home. The brand new Reverse Table Lamp by Menu has been proudly placed on top of this geometric inspired dining table. As you can see this area is a space where the homeowner lets their imagination run wild. A pile of inspiring magazines and interesting sculptural objects makes this place perfect for artistic minds alike.

Not only are the choice of contents in this room artistic, the hexagonal patterned, panelled ceiling emphasises the revolutionary flare that this residence prides itself in. Randomly placed in the center of this room are two marble plinths that accentuate just some of the interesting and high-quality materials that have been boldly shown around this home. Generally used as a stylish side table, the Menu Marble Plinth has been used as a single sculpture, that we believe stands beautifully within this room. The Tearoom Chair is nestled in the corner. The chair provides some relaxation, for where even this bedroom cannot escape the artful enthusiasms as you can see by the fresh clay pots that are positioned to the side.

Wierd but wonderful, the unusual way of lighting sets the scene in this room. A slightly more relaxed approach, the Menu Gravel Rug beautifully softens the bold blacks and solid pieces such as the Plinth Coffee Table. It’s a stunning touch to the raw wooden floor and cool grey walls.

The building itself is a work of art on its own as you can see from the stunning decor above the grande double doors. The Zet Storage System is another way that this homeowner can store all the imaginative inspiration that they behold. They have even displayed this is an extremely creative manner. Of course, the padded lounge chair to the side provides the resident with their much needed down time.

This comfortable looking chair and foot stool combination provides the creative with a space to draw, dream and design. Offering a space to rest their coffee mug, is the Androgyne Side Table – a beautiful addition to this interior space.

Balanced on top of the Marble Plinth is the Echassse Vase. Soon to hold a blooming bunch of florals, the brass based vase goes hand in hand with the various other brass features such as the door handle and the TR Bulb light.  As you can see here various other objects make up interesting sculptures that each tell a different story.

Commonly placed on the floor, this side table breaks the rules. Placed on the window seal, this side table holds other objects, piecing together another magnificent sculpture.

We hope that this article has given you many different ideas about the ways that you can style your home. A home is not only somewhere to live, play and work, it is also a space to show off your imagination and artistic talent for everyone to witness. It is your very own art gallery!

This apartment was a collaboration between Menu and Dux, designed by Norm Architects. Imagery first seen on Coco Lapine Design.

We would like to welcome you to this stunning attic apartment. As you enter this entrancing space, you are welcomed by a white rigid wall that tricks the mind into thinking there is a staircase just upon you. Not only does this feature make the mind believe that there is a higher level to this apartment, it also adds a raw texture to the interior space, that is so beautifully softened by its surroundings. Welcoming you in or offering you out with a comfortable space to take your shoes off and on, is the widely known Fritz Hansen Drop Chair.

As you enter the contemporary living space you are greeted with a variety of seating options. An industrial influenced lounge chair offers additional seating for guests alongside the sofa. Beneath, this homeowner has opted for a pale, fluffy rug, keeping within the floors décor yet adding warmth and comfort to this much loved, cool colour scheme. This apartment takes advantage of the natural light that has been granted to it. The skylights allow light to flood down through the ceiling whilst the arched window situated below shows off this building’s raw character and history whilst providing the space with one of the building’s stunning artifacts.

This living space has been lovingly framed with a series of artistic prints that offer colour and character to the plain, white wall behind. You will notice that these pieces of art incorporate some of the most common colours seen throughout this apartment. The colours chosen brings this space together, intensifying a warmer atmosphere throughout.

Over on the other side of this space, is where the homeowner has chosen to create their relaxing dining area. It is overshadowed by a unique pendant lamp that matches simultaneously with the raw and organic pieces that is seen displayed on this table.

As you can see here, the Ferm Living Plant Box is not only for storing plants, it can also be used to display many different objects. Nestled underneath is the Shell Pot, also by Ferm Living. This decorative pot could be a great way to store everyday items such as keys, money and so on.

We love the way this kitchen offers so much storage yet takes up so little room. Again, a nautical styled pot is displayed on the kitchen countertop, suggesting that this apartment could be lucky enough to be by the sea. The grey cabinets have been chosen to seamlessly match in with the rest of this space, whereas the dark wooden cupboards add warmth into the space along with the other wooden elements spotted throughout this apartment.

A Normann Copenhagen Amp Pendant Light gently illuminates this living space. The smoke effect of this lamp enhances a cosy atmosphere into this interior whilst casting a warming glow.

Gleaming spotlights illuminate this kitchen countertop perfectly, making nighttime cooking easy and enjoyable for this homeowner.

This has got to be one of the coziest bedrooms we have seen. Imagine lying in this bed looking up into the whimsical night sky. The fresh, white bed linen is in-keeping with the rest of this apartment’s décor. Quirky features such as the pencil-legged side table create an imaginative space where you can let your dreams run away with you.

Spring is here and that only means one thing – it’s decoarting time! We think that although bright shades of paint can uplift your interior space dramatically, an easy application of designer wallpaper will add not only a pop of colour and pattern to your walls but an artistic flare as well.

To help you decide we have pulled together some of the biggest wallpaper trends so far this year. From chinoiserie influenced designs to eccentricly bold patterns, the trends of 2020 offer a wide variety of styles to suit almost any personal taste and interior decor. As well as these stunning featured wallpapers below, here at beut we have a wider selection of wallpapers for you to explore. Consisting of prestigious wallpaper brands such as Cole and Son, Coordonne, Feathr and many more.

Pantone Colour Of The Year: Classic Blue

This year’s Pantone colour of year is the reliable, versatile and solid Classic Blue. The deep blue hue offers you a warming and lavish shade of colour for your interior space. Although it’s not the exact shade, we have picked out some of our best-selling wallpapers below, that show influences of this stunning shade. The shade has been complemented with a variety of different animals, birds and intricate florals. The colour of the year for 2020 will deffinately return due to the easy application of this popular colour that it has stemmed from.

Moody Pastels

Ever so popular this year, pastel colours such as corals, sage greens and warm greys have really come into play recently within the wallpaper world. The softer shades of colour leave a cooling and relaxing lasting impression on its guest. The range of colours seen within these pastel inspired wallpapers offer a fresh and uplifting atmosphere – perfect for the upcoming summer months ahead.

Terracottas

Who doesn’t love a sunny terracotta shade? Reminiscent of the traditional terracotta vases and terracotta architectural elements seen throughout the Mediterranean locations, this popular shade of orange is being recognised more and more throughout wallpaper design this year. These designs below, show huge terracotta influence as well as many elements of Spanish inspiration.

Bold & Beautiful

There is nothing wrong with plastering your walls in a beautifully bold pattern, styled with either blooming florals, jazzy geometrics, cheeky monkeys or flamboyant species of birds. There are no limits when it comes to bold patterns. They will continue to crop up in wallpaper archives and releases for many decades to come. However, this year we have noticed a larger want for extravagent and brightly coloured patterns and what we have seen so far is absolutely stunning. We believe that now this trend has found its place, it will never go out of fashion.

Chinoiserie

A mixture between bold patterns, pastel shades and bright colours, Chinoiserie influenced wallpaper is extremely popular within the interior design world. In fact, it has got to be one of our most best-selling trends within our wallpaper collection. In particular, Coordonne’s Edo Mural Wallpaper, featured below in our very own version that we collaborated with Coordonne for. Featuring etheral birds, flamboyant trees and elegant details, Chinoiserie wallpaper is one of our favourite ways to uplift a home and create a magical and exotic space for you to enjoy. Within this area, we have also noticed occassional sparks of metallic detailing such as the glowing background of the Byobu Wallpaper by Mind The Gap.
