People have celebrated “mid-winter” festivals for thousands of years. They usually involve feasting and fires to mark the beginning of the return of the sun and longer hours of daylight occurring with the Winter Solstice and called by many names including Yule, Christmas, and Saturnalia. In all of these festivals lights are an important part of the experience.

So as we decorate our homes with lights, Illuminate celebrates this with an exciting selection of new lighting for your home. Made by talented young designers from throughout the UK, Illuminate has hand-blown glass light-shades, pendant lights and desk lamps made from a diverse range of materials – all superb pieces to light up your mid winter evenings.
