Make Your Christmas Shine

Christmas is a lovely time of year for getting together with family and friends, and great lighting has always been part of it. The glow of a log fire or the fairy lights on the tree spring to mind, and of course we all love those. However, that's not quite what I was thinking of.  Geoffrey Harris of London has always been a step ahead when it comes to luxurious and glamorous lighting, and what better time than Christmas to highlight some of the fabulous ranges, showing how they can add to your festive decor, or even make thoughtful gifts for those special friends?

How about the Cuboluce for a little box of festive delight? Available in Christmas Red or snowy White as well as glossy Black, these fabulous boxes are a real talking point. Open the lid, the light comes on, close it and the light goes off. Just like opening a present, these gorgeous table lamps are the perfect gift. They also look great stacked together as a feature, how about a pyramid of Cuboluce as an alternative to the traditional tree and lights?


The dinner table is one of the most important aspects of Christmas Day. The right lighting and your guests will remember the great meal they enjoyed for years to come, not quite knowing why. Such a lot can be achieved with excellent lighting, and the right ambience is one of the most significant ways it can work. Place your table under a truly magnificent pendant light for example, such as the the Can-Can by Flos with its gorgeous swirly interior diffuser which creates a stunning effect over your dining area. How about the subtle effect of wall lights, placed strategically around the room? Northern Lighting makes one of the most eye catching wall lights you could choose, the Butterfly. From http://www.geoffreyharris.co.uk/ this beautiful white light creates a subtle glow, add some table lamps such as the Cuboluce or the Mini Glo-Ball T, which incidentally could also be placed on the floor, if you're careful in choosing where, and you can create a candlelight effect without the smoke and eye watering smell. Your guests will be able to relax in the luxurious and glamorous glow. After all, when good food and wine is abundant, nobody wants to be under the spotlight.
