More and more people are looking for unique furniture and décor for their home, from bespoke wallpaper designs to stand-out furnishings.

Factory made, flat-packed furniture may be a cheap way to furnish your home, but these standard offerings do little to make living spaces inspiring and interesting. And one bespoke furniture piece sitting alongside IKEA cabinets can look oddly out of place.
One of the best ways to shine a different light on the interior of your home is to go bespoke with lighting. One fabulous bespoke piece of lighting can transform any interior from dull and boring to interesting in an instant.
Use lighting to add ambience and drama
Lighting can literally transform the mood of any room. General lighting, task lighting and mood lighting can be cleverly used in the home to create different atmospheres according to the occasion. Delivering light to a focal point in the room is one way to create a dramatic ambience. Find out more about the lighting tricks interior designers use here.
Whether you choose a bespoke pendant, chandelier or an interesting custom-made lamp, it will be sure to add a different dimension to the home in more ways than one. Lighting can change everything.
Imagination knows no bounds
The beauty of any bespoke furnishing or lighting is in breaking the mould. A design that only exists in your mind can come to life and there’s really nothing more liberating when it comes to interior design than a bespoke piece born from your own imagination.
When it comes to adding character to your home, nothing compares to beautiful and/or eccentric bespoke lighting. Recreate traditional chandelier lighting with a modern twist. Convert an old bike into a designer lamp. Choose anything from traditional to contemporary and even bizarre! Most importantly, go wild with design if you want a showstopping light to wow.
How to create a mind-blowing statement piece
First of all, you will need to find a bespoke designer to work with. That could be a bespoke lighting specialist or an interior designer. Your designer will be able to create technical drawings based on your ideas to come up with a bespoke design you are happy with. Some designers offer 3D images so you can see exactly how your lighting piece will play out in your home.
Or you can simply buy a one-off-piece already made. There are hundreds of talented craftspeople making unique lighting pieces throughout the UK. You just have to find them. Seek and you will find.
Choose an interior designer who understands lighting
Just as lighting can dramatically transform a room in a positive way, get it wrong and it can make a room feel cold and ugly. The smallest changes in colour, angle or size of a bespoke pendant, chandelier, spotlight or lamp can make a huge difference in the ambience you are trying to achieve. A lighting specialist will have a full understanding of how light will work in your particular space and ensure your bespoke lighting makes exactly the impact you want it to.
Bespoke lighting in the hallway
Creating a stylish welcome to your home can be achieved with bespoke lighting in the hallway. A bespoke chandelier or large lantern can set the tone for the rest of your home. Or a bespoke table lamp can take pride of place on a hallway table. The right lighting in the hallway can transform it into a luxurious space. If you are serious about making a great first impression, the hallway is the perfect space to add some wow factor.
Bespoke living room lighting
The living room is where you are likely to spend most of your time at home. A statement bespoke light is as exciting as a piece of art. Check out this icicle-inspired ceiling light by Dutch lighting designer, Brand Van Egmond. And his fractal chandelier is awesome! His most recent project for the latest exclusive mall in the Middle East is a sculptural marvel, lighting up seven floors and being over 20 metres. It goes to show that anything is possible.
Nothing compares with owning a unique piece of something.0
