We have scoured the web to bring you our short list of the best places to buy lights online. Below in words and pictures.


The most French - French Rosa: This recent discovery is a real source of inspiration, especially when it comes to lighting. The lamps from House Doctor, Hübsch and Bloomingdale are amongst our favourites.


The most British - Rockett St George: At the top of our list of favourites for a while now, Rockett St George has really dazzled us with its lighting! Our heart-stopper? The pleated black linen lampshade for a chic and luxurious living room.


The most modern - Conran Shop: It’s not only because of its selection of lights from English brand Original BTC that The Conran Shop wholeheartedly deserves its place in our prize list.


The brightest - Merci: Hanging lights, wall lamps, table lamps and much more… You will also discover a selection of industrial light bulbs and electrical wires in all colours of the rainbow.


The most original - Bxxlght: Compose your own message on these black and white ‘lightboxes’ which are half-way between lighting and an installation. Monochrome chic!


The most chic - Rowen and Wren: Chic, understated and refined are the best words to describe this English brand which is only available online. The glass pendant lamps, ‘Fiori’, are the height of elegance.


The most retro - Fleux: Hanging lamps, garlands, table lamps and wall lighting are all on offer at Fleux where life is certainly made brighter! It is also made rosier thanks to our favourite, the neon “PINK” wall lamp by Seletti.


The most surprising Vanity Boum: Rare, unique and like precious gems, these limited edition lights which have been created from ancient globes scouted out from all over the world are as original as they are beautiful.


The most Parisian - Sarah Lavoine: Whether you're in the process of decorating a Parisian apartment or a holiday home by the sea, the pieces created by the interior designer Sarah Lavoine will find their place. Our firm favourite? The little Celeste wall lamp which gives a warm, gentle glow.


The most exotic  -  Couleur Locale: For a touch of bohemian exotica, look no further than to the ceiling lights from this wonderful Dutch store. Sourced internationally, the rattan and bamboo shades are equally at home in an urban or rustic environment but look best when matched with white walls and soft, pastel coloured linens, another speciality of this beautiful site! 

The most floral - House of Hackney : If you’re still too scared to re-wallpaper your walls with a floral pattern, then why not opt for the House of Hackney’s bedside lamp equivalent with its sumptuous retro-tropical prints and the more traditional yet audacious flowers and foliage prints.

The most ecological - Plumen : Plumen has created chic as well as smart lights. In fact, the bulbs are designed in an ecological and sustainable way. And what’s more, you can create your own light by choosing from a range of bulbs, wires and lampshades in either tinted or metallic glass. A bright idea!
