From the understated to the ornate and everything in-between the ceiling lamp offers so much more than you may imagine, whether it’s the home, office or place of business there is a pendant which is ideal for every location, interested? Ok, let’s continue.
To begin with a ceiling lamp is so much more than just a light source, it is a statement of who you are. Some may view the pendant as a basic light source: nothing special, however at Patinas we look at these lamps as the soul of the room, think about it, it is always the initial greeting when one enters the room, a flick of the switch and the environment is bathed in beautiful light.
For many centuries the ceiling lamp has been the heart of the room, and through the ages fashions have of course changed to reflect the mood of the period but one constant has remained, light.
At home: Long gone are the days of a simple bulb hanging from a flex adorned with a cheap plastic shade (unless of course this is what you desire). We at Patinas have made this possible through due diligence and an expert eye for detail. Each room in the home has its own unique flavour and character and the light source should reflect this. At Patinas we have a wide plethora of lamps to suit each environment.
The bathroom: water water everywhere…So it’s safety first making a flush light the obvious choice, small and compact and far away from a water source. And if that doesn’t sound exciting then please let me reassure you that with our selection of materials, colours and glass you can be sure that even a standard light can be customised to suit your requirements.
The living area: Now this room presents you with a myriad of choices all depending on the style of the room in question. As always the pendant should go hand in hand with the décor of the area. For example a minimalist room would be perfect for an art deco piece like the Basel art deco pendant lamp, with its simple yet elegant form it is perfect for this area, and with its long and slender dimensions it is the perfect choice for the dreaded limited space scenario. What’s that I hear you say? You want a modern twist to your room? Ok, we’ve got that covered too. Our Petitot range of interior lamps we believe is the perfect solution, from the understated beauty of the Petitot flush mount to the downright spectacular Petitot rectangular art deco chandelier this family of lamps manages to combine timeless classicism and modern fashions perfectly, and with its LED bulbs you can be assured that this product shows love for the environment. No matter the size or style of the room we are here to help you realise your vision.
The bedroom: Again, there are several options, all of which are designed to create the perfect ambience for the boudoir. From the bright and airy cheer of the Cooper pendant with is shimmering and stunning glass shade to the fun and funky Primavera large organic chandelier (a uniquely designed pendant which is capable of being sculpted to any number of shapes and forms) to the quite frankly downright seductive qualities of the Nizza art deco chandelier with its eye-catching design and cutesy adornments we at Patinas understand the importance of the bedroom, after all, when we aren’t creating the perfect lamp for you, we also occasionally try to sleep!!
The dining room: At Patinas we know that the dining experience at home is always an important social event and boy oh boy do we have a great choice of handcrafted pendants for this occasion. Let’s look at two of the many options. The Versailles one meter wide dining room chandelier is just that, designed with opulence in mind this pendant with its sheer presence adds a wow factor which is as beautiful as the meal presented. Now I’m going to be selfish, a personal favourite of mine is the Montreal grandiose oval art deco chandelier is simply stunning, it has all the hallmarks of quality one would expect from Patinas but with a fresh modern look which is bound to compliment its environment with ease, I truly adore this interior handcrafted pendant. Please feel free to enquire about our other innovative designs, we are always happy to help our clients create the perfect ambience for the special occasion.
The kitchen: space is the watchword here, we know that the modern kitchen demands solid bright light but within an unobtrusive source, we hear you, so we’re thinking spotlights and mounted flush lights. Manhattan, just the name alone conjures up evocative images, and the spotlight is no exception, compact and bijou it has a lot of heart for a spot and it is powerful enough to illuminate even the most demanding of environments.
Difficult to light areas? Space at a premium? Ah yes, we have that covered too, we at Patinas understand that even with the finest design there are more often than not problem areas, thankfully we have a full and extensive range of lights purely designed to combat this problem, from the simple Tribu mini retro flush to the sublime New York decorative flush mount to the extravagant Stuttgart tiny ceiling flush lamp. Let us help you to make dark corners a thing of the past.
The office: We know that the modern working environment encompasses a wide range of styles, from the fresh and modern open space office to the traditional sensibilities we at Patinas are sure to have the perfect solution to reflect the values of your company. Please contact us with your requirements and one of our lighting consultants will be delighted to be of assistance.
Hotels and restaurants: we know that the ambience of your establishment is of paramount importance, this is why we recommend themed lighting for your place of business, whether it’s the classic styling of our Versailles range or the fresh and modern feel of our Montreal range you can rest assured that Patinas takes a pride in finding the perfect lighting solution for your establishment, for further enquires please arrange an appointment with one of our specialist business lighting consultants who will only be too pleased to be of assistance.
