I’ve decided that lighting is one of the hardest things to get right. I searched for ages for pendant lights for various rooms in my house – from the high street to obscure online retailers – but could rarely find anything that sparked my interest.
There are, however, some exceptions. One of the best designs I found were Tom Dixon’s beautiful ‘Beat’ lights. They’re a great balance between contemporary and classic – which is incredibly difficult to achieve, especially when it comes to lighting. I love the combination of shapes, and the beaten brass interiors. In the end these didn’t make sense to have in my place, but I still covet them.
They’re currently on sale at Nest. A future design classic I would bet.
