As we get set for Christmas, add some glow, sparkle and shine to your interiors and your gift giving.  At Elektra, we always endeavor to ensure your days are merry and bright – that’s why this week’s blog outlines our 10 Christmas gift recommendations.

You can’t help but admire Artimede’s slick new ‘Come Together’ light.   A portable, wireless light that wouldn’t look out of place in a sci-fi movie.  Wave goodbye to trailing cables as this rechargeable revolutionary comes in 3 colours and holds up to 16 hours of uninterrupted power.  Brighten indoors or out with this stunning design.

Say hello to Bon Jour Unplugged, by Flos.  Renowned French interiors designer Philippe Starck created this petite wireless portable design that is so alluring you’ll never want to part from it. The lamp and its accessories come in different finishings and colours: white, chrome, matt chrome and copper for the body; transparent, yellow, amber or fumée for the interchangeable crown.

Want to follow a Christmas star? Well, you’re in luck as Dar Lighting’s stunning OSUNA table lamp has a charming star shaped footprint.  Wonder at the craftmanship employed to make this glorious lamp. Each glass panel is framed in brass and carefully soldered to form the robust base, topped off with an ivory linen shade.  A perfect illumination for your Christmas celebrations.

The brilliant Tolomeo Table lamp by Artemide brims with personality.  Designed by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarla Fassina in 1987, it was an instant hit then and has since achieved iconic status.  Designed around ease of operation, newer editions incorporate a motion sensor, dimmer switch and LED lights, letting users vary the light intensity and colour temperature.

Another timeless classic is Dar Lighting’s Moffat Lamp.  An urn shaped clear glass table lamp base with polished chrome detailing.

Laguna by Artimede will surely style up any Christmas décor.  In fact, this stunning orb light reminds us of our favourite Christmas snow domes.  Don’t go shaking it though as this stylish, contemporary spherical orb lamp is made from hand-blown glass sitting on top of a raised metal base.  The beauty isn’t just in its look, but the light it emits through its diffused, soft, warm light, bringing a welcoming glow to its surroundings.  

The Bellhop portable light by Flos has a chic, quirky, captivating look offering customers ultimate flexibility, casting an atmospheric pool of light wherever it goes.  Its like a wireless candle for the modern era. Designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, this mushroom shape design comes in a range of colours: White, Cioko, Grey and Brick Red.

The Tab Table Lamp by Flos is so minimalist it will effortlessly blend into any interior.  Incorporating multi LED’s to emit diffused light, designers Edward Barby and Jay Osgerby’s vision was to create a light that avoided glare and shadow.  With a head that rotates to 45 degrees, this light is ideal as a desk lamp or bedside lamp.

Want some illuminating art to brighten your interiors?  Designed by Richard Sapper for Italian lighting brand Artemide back in 1972, the Tizio Lamp’s sleek, industrial design looks as current now as it did then.   It is ideal as a reading light or desk lamp because its light beam adjusts in any direction. Despite its small base, Tizio lamp stands steadily in every angle due to its counterbalanced metal arms.  In fact, this inspirational light won the Compasso d’Oro design award in 1979 and is housed in museum collections worldwide.  

Last but by no means least – the IC Light by Flos offers gravity defying design and a style reminiscent of the art nouveau era.  Yet visionary designer Michael Anastassiades recently created this wonderful design. This lamp’s beautiful glass orb balances effortlessly on its chrome, steel or brass base.  Its like having a miniature moon illuminating your room.
