Unusual, Creative Lamps & Lighting

In interior design, lighting lends itself beautifully to being moulded, shaped and adjusted. Lighting and desk lamps can often be unique, creatively shaped and twisted and turned, and these ordinary household objects can suddenly become fun and playful.

Livening up a dull looking room isn’t always an easy task – you can add new, interesting things but displaying them just right can be tricky. Just like it’s possible to completely change the appearance of a room, or the furniture in it, by painting and decorating, it’s also possible to change the room’s atmosphere and appearance by adjusting and playing with the lighting.

A change of lamps, or different lighting elements, can create a very different appearance in a room, and lighting positions can hide or reveal different aspects. Interesting and unusual lamps, like the ones that we’ve selected, can also be a talking point and can easily become the main focus of a room.

While typically lamps & lights are used to highlight works of art, or interesting features in a room, many of the lights that we’ve chosen are themselves works of art, or are at least creative and peculiar. This is particularly true of some of the more out-of-the-ordinary lamps that we’ve chosen, such as the levitating lamps or Pieke Bergmans’ unusual take on light bulbs.

We’ve brought together a selection of amazing, inspired lighting designs, ranging from lamps that appear to hover, to spotlights with unusual, creative flourishes. Hopefully you’ll find them inspirational, and help to get your creative mind in gear.
