Design Centre Stories

Only the Essentials

Arteriors has curated a collection called Essential Lighting. Like the interiors equivalent of fashion’s little black dress, the intention is to pinpoint the products from its extensive catalogue that possess a combination of versatility and timelessness: reliable designs that can be returned to again and again, suitable for a variety of settings, used together or as stand-alone statement pieces.

Highlights include the ‘Sidney’ (above left), a slender marble table lamp with brass pull chains; the mid-century-inspired ‘Jalen’ chandelier (above centre, pictured with ‘Titus’ wall lights); and the ‘Royce’ pendant (above right), which explores a geometrical theme by sitting a demi-globe of opal glass inside a frame of two metal squares.

The lighting collection is the first in a series of Essentials that Arteriors will select every season.
