Litecraft teamed up with interior designer Hannah Barnes for this year’s Northern Home Show that took place at Manchester Central this weekend.
Here at Litecraft, we know that lighting is one of the most important aspects of interior design. Good lighting is an essential element to creating a successful home decor theme. It can create a certain mood and dictate the feel of a room as well as affecting how the colour scheme looks. Whether you’re starting from scratch or updating an old room, get the lighting right and the rest of the look will follow.
Today, there are many amazing and unique styles of decorative ceiling lights and lamps available, so light fittings have also become an important part of creating a ‘look’.

Hannah’s interior design display for the Northern Home Show looked stunning and we’re so happy she chose our products for her feature room, the look was a mixture of industrial and vintage with a hint of botanical/tropical thrown in. We especially like the tropical back drop and curtains used. Here’s a few photos supplied by Hannah:
Gatsby 3 Light Ceiling Light Pendant – Chrome
Firstly, our stunning Gatsby 3 Light Ceiling Light Pendant – Chrome. Inspired by the Art Deco era, the Gatsby pendant ceiling light has a glamorous, vintage feel. The luxurious design features three hanging cluster pendants with cut glass lamps that look like old bottles from the Art Deco era. With a name like Gatsby, this pendant light fitting is perfect if you want to add that iconic 1920’s look to your home. Hannah chose two of these pendants, displaying them in the corners of the room set.
Hollywood Table Lamp – Chrome
Finally, our amazing Hollywood Table Lamp – Chrome. The Hollywood Table lamp is perfect for adding a touch of old school glitz and glamour to a room. The lamp is inspired by vintage theatre spotlights from bygone eras of Hollywood. It features an adjustable dark wood frame and an oversized head with a polished chrome finish. The lamps head can be rotated to direct the light anywhere. We love this lamp positioned against the tropical print curtains, it creates a mixture of themes and a contrast between vintage and tropical, sometimes it’s great to mix things up a bit.
Replica Circa 1957 Chandelier
Our stunning Replica Circa 1957 Chandelier took centre stage in the room set, suspended above a rustic wooden dining table, this was the piece de resistance in the room set. The Replica Circa 1957 pendant chandelier takes inspiration from vintage fifties designs and brings it up to date for the modern era. It’s a timeless piece that will work well with a wide range of decor styles. The Replica Circa 1957 ceiling light features a simple design with chrome arms that branch out from the centre and hold an array of light bulbs. It is perfect if you want to make a big bold style statement in the centre of a room.
