Glistening Glass Lighting
Let the natural beauty of glass lighting shine in your space.
Glass lighting has a translucency and a naturally reflective quality with a gleaming lustre, making it a perfect lighting choice. Especially as coloured glass is one of the few lighting options that is enhanced by daylight.
We find glass amazing and think that glass is a truly mesmerising material. It is quite astonishing that a molten liquid is created from fired earth and plays such an important role in our lives, being such a useful material.
The use of glass to beautify spaces has been going on for a such a long time, such as with stained glass windows seen in churches and we think it adds such a magical quality to spaces. It is definitely worth considering getting some glass lighting of your own and harnessing this gem of wisdom from the past whilst embracing the contemporary designs of today.
The Lighting Company will show you some of our favourite glass lighting options for indoor and outdoor spaces, we shine a light on just why we think glass is a great lighting choice.

Our Rowan ceiling pendant is made with distinctly Scandinavian and British taste. Made with mouth-blown glass in a classy and contemporary dome shape in a variety of tinted colours. Subtle colours include gentle topaz blue, pinky obsidian and olive green, to name a few, allowing the light to glow through with astonishing clarity and beauty. Or you could go for a more matte coloured glass finish, like a creamy alabaster or brightly coloured rust glass.
Glass lighting can help you create a relaxing and inviting environment with a warm light glow and this lighting is sure to capture your curiosity. Showcasing glass lighting can enhance your surroundings whatever time of day as it has the benefit of reflecting sunlight and other light sources during daylight too, whilst adding a colour accent to interiors.

Glass Lighting for Outdoors
The Somerset Lighting Collection is one of our most popular outdoor lighting options with our customers and we can see why! They are hand made in Britain and named after provinces and towns in the lovely Somerset countryside (we are slightly biased!).
Pictured here is our Lynton outdoor wall lantern. Hand made in a charming lantern shape made with a traditional lead technique. Panels of glass in varying sizes of cubic shapes, including squares, rectangles and triangles with accents of deep wildflower-violet blue, topaz blue and clear glass. Mounted on a striking black sturdy aluminium decorative wall mount.
This lantern can signal a warm welcome home for you and guests either by the front door or helping to lighting for patio’s gardens and balconies. As a result this light has safety advantages. Whilst during daylight hours reflects natural sunlight, like a stained-glass window.
Additionally, this lantern has an IP23 rating, meaning high- protection from rain up to 60 degrees from vertical and can be fitted with either sensor, standard or dimmer switch.
