5 OF THE BEST FROM THE NEW LIGHTING SHOP YOU NEED TO KNOW

Before BHS shut up shop, it was known for having a great lighting selection - something which led to its homeware offering coming back as a standalone online. I also heard that when BHS did shut, some of the buyers went to Debenhams, bringing some good lighting to Debenhams, which I have since bought and enjoyed!

Well, with Debenhams in trouble, you might think it’d be a bit of a bummer for this obvious buying talent going to waste, but a new site, called HouseOf, has launched, created by some of the team behind BHS’s lighting department.

I think its initial offering is actually really good - there’s some great designs that are different from a lot of what I’ve seen around, and there’s a real focus on strong, graphic lines and ways to add a hit of colour. Go check it out for yourself, but here’s my pick of 5 of the best designs. Click the pictures to shop them.
