So often when we think about interior lighting we consider the stand alone brilliance of the ceiling lamp/pendant/chandelier or the table lamp with its astonishing ability to change the mood and ambience of its location, what we often overlook is the wall light. We at Patinas consider this to be the cornerstone of lighting, the key element so to speak.
Long before the ornate light was primarily used for practical purposes, to illuminate and guide, after all, caves and long dank passages were hardly a source of strong natural light, so whether it was the caveman with his flickering torch or the country manor with its elaborate candelabras wall lighting has served a useful, some may say vital role in our daily lives.
At Patinas we are often met with the statement ‘it’s just a light on a wall, nothing special’. And yes, some may take that attitude, we however see things rather differently. The wall light is an integral part of the home or business, whether it is a modern, minimalist, period or traditional location one can be assured that we have the perfect interior light for you, and if not talk to us, we are always delighted to advise and help.
If I may, I would now like to focus your attention on home of our best sellers which will encompass all manner of styles.
