Let there be light this long, dark winter…
Ever since Thomas Edison patented the first commercially successful light bulb in 1879 designers, architects and home-lovers alike have invested time, care and effort into selecting and creating the ideal mood and ambience through lighting design. As well as its functional role, lighting can highlight individual items, it can enhance a space or make it feel cramped, create mood and illusion as well project a specific colour.
As we go headlong into the dark winter months, light plays a bigger role than ever, and its decorative role throughout the Christmas period is symbolic, reminding us that light will return after the dark winter days.
So with the countdown on to the shortest and darkest day of the year, Futon Company says let there be light!
