Give Your Home an Exotic Flair with Scandinavian Lighting

When it comes to home decorating, people often forget that lighting plays just as big a role as wall hangings, floor coverings, and colour palettes. The lights in your home don’t have to be purely functional. They’re an integral part of the design of your home, so don’t settle for lighting that simply illuminates, but find the perfect pieces to compliment the aesthetic of your home.

As with all your furnishings, you want pieces that stand out, are unique, and, most importantly, represent who you are as a person. Scandinavian lighting from Cavelights might just be the perfect addition to your home.

Scandinavian lighting boasts one of the most popular designs in the world. With its clean lines and diffuse light, this style of lighting is perfect for producing warm, atmospheric ambience in any room of your home. These lights are less about abundance and more about strategic placement. The idea is to provide illumination that’s adequate while not being harsh.

Let’s take a look at some of our most popular pieces favoured by those looking to create a cosy atmosphere.

Nordic Hanging Pendant Light

The beautiful thing about a Nordic hanging lamp is how brilliantly they manage to combine simplicity with sophistication. As with all Scandinavian lighting, the designs are very minimalist. When it comes to many things in life, less is often more, and Nordic lighting pieces certainly prove that to be true

The Nordic Hanging Pendant Light comes in a variety of colours - black, white, grey, or red - and looks beautiful whether it’s a single lamp or a series. Matching colours is always a good way to go, but the colours are subtle enough that they work well mixed, too.

Each Nordic pendant light illuminates roughly 3-5 square metres, so they’re ideal for hanging over a kitchen counter or dining room table.


Nordic Coloured Glass Pendant Light

Scandinavian pendant lights are an easy way to class up any area. The Nordic Coloured Glass Pendant Light is another brilliant fusion of functionality and ambience, a terrific way to display your excellent tastes while lighting up your home.

As with many of our products, this Scandinavian pendant light is customizable in a variety of ways. Choose from four beautiful colourways - green, grey, white, or cognac. Additionally, the handle can come in gold or black. You can also choose from between a wide or a thin design, giving you greater control over the statement made by these lights. The thinner designs are perfect for smaller rooms where space is at a premium. The thinner lights run 13cm wide, while the larger models are 20cm.


Nordic Arc Floor Lamp

If you’re looking for something completely different from a Scandinavian lighting pendant, look no further. The Nordic Arc Floor Lamp is a brilliant and gorgeous piece that’s sure to make your guests take notice. Standing 170cm tall, it lights a good 5-10 square metres, so tucking it in the corner of the room should provide ample light. Plus, you can choose between warm light or white light, allowing you to decide between atmosphere and pure functionality.

The lamp’s arcing design makes it perfect for reading under, as your favourite armchair or sofa can fit comfortably underneath the lamp as it stretches out towards the room. Best of all, it’s a floor lamp, so there’s no installation required. This allows you to easily move it around the house while you search for the perfect spot to place it.


Nordic LED Pole Light
