Making Your Garden Glow
Thursday, 8 August 2019
Over the past ten years, the demand for lighting in our gardens has increased. Maybe it’s because we are working longer hours and returning home later. But when the day is over, what better way to unwind than sitting in your outdoor space breathing in the sweet smell of a summer evening with lighting to suit your every mood. Whether it’s a romantic atmosphere or a vibrant party mode, there are plenty of lighting ideas for you to choose from.
Create a stunning burst of light outdoors with Think Gadget's Starburst Hanging Lantern. Designed with micro LED lights that sparkle on fine copper wire, they give a dazzling effect, especially when displayed in clusters – ideal for a showstopping look if you're planning on entertaining this summer.

The Foscarini Solar Outdoor Light is another unique design featuring a luminous hemispherical body. Capable of standing both upright – ideal to place your drink on, or at an angle of up to 15 degrees depending on the amount of light being diffused.
If it’s a more natural look you’re looking for, then Tom Dixon’s stone candle set offers a captivating assortment of tactile marble containers, housing wax candles scented with an evocative fragrant blend of fig, bergamot and sandalwood.

Or why not treat yourself to the Drum Outdoor Lamp by Cane-line, available at Lime Modern Living. It brings a soft contemporary glow to exterior settings, featuring a white polyethylene cylindrical frame on an elegant aluminium base and includes an integrated cord for easy use.
If you’re a fan of the indoor floor lamp, then why not have one outdoors too? Take a look at the stunning design by Marset’s Joan Gaspar, which is impressive and tough, but elegant and warming too. The oversized shade is made from lightweight fibreglass, held down with a heavyweight slate base, suitable for all weather conditions. So, go with the glow and enjoy your summer evenings.
