Create a bohemian vibe that still feels opulent with a beaded chandelier. This one from Matalan looks far more expensive than it actually is.

We love the idea of a group of bulbs and flex wrapped around a log as a feature pendant light over a dining table or kitchen island, but if you don’t have the confidence to craft your own, Next now offers a readymade version that looks like the real thing.

Rise and fall ceiling lights add an extra dash of drama with their decorative counterbalance weights. A style made popular in traditional fisherman-style lights, this brass design from Made is a modern take on the look.
