ROUGH LUXE LIGHTING + 15% OFF WILLIAM & WATSON
As an interior designer, lighting is my nemesis. I seem to be on a never-ending quest to find the perfect light fitting for one spot or another. Recently I’ve started a love-affair with vintage filament bulbs, I like the mix of rough-luxe, contemporary-traditional and the gorgeous soft warm glow. So, it has to be said, I was pretty excited to discover William & Watson. Their range of lighting is super luxe, designed by a small team of creative artists who have created a unique range with authenticity and quality.
My inner geek (and environmentalist) is rather pleased to see an LED range too – great for areas where you need light a bit more regularly as filaments are notoriously inefficient (but beautiful!). Not only are there 16 styles of LED and 19 of vintage filament bulbs to choose from, there’s a selection of pendant rose sets with coloured flexes (obsessed with the bronze!), and also lamp cages for that über industrial look.
Personally, I think this kind of lighting works best in groups – a row over a kitchen counter, or cluster over a dining table looks incredibly stylish.
But for a more pared-back look, a single bulb in place of a desk or bedside lamp is possibly one of the simplest – and coolest – lighting looks around.

This beautiful remake of the orginal 1910 Edison bulb is a classic, the squirrel cage filament creates a cosy warm glow
Create a statment with this extra-large bulb. With an LED light it uses 1/10th of the energy and lasts up to 10 times longer!
Used inside or outside, this globe design works with almost any interior design style!
The striking shape of this diamond bulb looks stunning in a cluster, or paired with the sapphire for a bold statement.
For an even more industrial look, add a rustic cage. I’m coveting this rusty bronze to add a touch of rough to any luxe space
Coloured flex. Need I say more?! Available in 8 colours
