Using a number of images of Bulthaup kitchens with lighting schemes and fittings designed by John Cullen Lighting, Thomas showed how layered lighting creates the most interesting effects from adding an LED strip under an island to create a floating effect or adding floor washers into a kick plinth to show off the floor finish. Thomas discussed how the introduction of LEDs has opened up a fresh new world of lighting possibilities but it was key to select the good quality LEDs with good colour consistency, colour rendition and colour temperature.
You only need one or two lights. Like most antiques, vintage lights can be hard to find in pairs or suites. If coordinating fixtures is a concern, you’ll likely need to limit the number of lights you use. On the other hand, if you don’t care whether the chandelier matches the sconce, using a variety of vintage lights in similar styles (for example, Art Deco sconces with different backplates) can help facilitate an eclectic look, as if the house evolved over time.
