Lighting in your hotel is crucial in creating the right feel and atmosphere – whether it’s late night in your bar, over the mirror in the bathroom or in your restaurant for lunch, the best illuminations can make all the difference. Here we bring you some our favourites.
Featured from the current Elstead Lighting supplement catalogue is the French provincial-influenced Dewitt five light chandelier, designed by Feiss. It has a traditional and elegantly simple silhouette which has been updated using the contrast of a gilded Sunrise Silver finish. Using an innovative technique, clear teardrop crystals are painted on one side with the matching finish so colour shines through to harmonise with the rest of the fixture. Also available in this family is a single wall light, 3lt and 9lt chandelier as well as a 4lt pendant. Visit the brand’s Alton Showroom to see 2,700+ decorative lighting products on permanent display.

This is the Garrison from Christopher Wray, a modern suspension pendant collection with a design inspired by the bullseye fixtures from 19th century ships. Featuring a round low-profile metal shade with a rimmed base and satin white acrylic diffuser, the light is available in two sizes and a choice of four metal finishes.
It is available individually but particularly effective as part of a composition of multiple pendants of either size or a combination of both, and can be suspended either from a round or linear plate or de-centralised from a single canopy. Illuminated by integrated LEDs and offers direct lighting effects.

Calm at sea
Moby Dick has a structure which is rough on the inside and smooth on the outer side so to let the light go through its fiberglass, emanating a warm effect. Its wavy lines recall sea waves and its concave line reminds of the famous whale’s white humpback.
It’s a strong image and at the same time very delicate: it is exactly in that balance of opposites where the feature of that model shall be focused.
Moby Dick is a suspended lamp, available as wall lamp to where a refined game of light and shadows matches very good both to minimalistic or decorative contexts and to all outdoor spaces.
