Most of us don’t think about how light can affect our mood, but the different types of light we’re exposed to can actually have a significant impact on our emotional health and wellbeing. For example, bright light has been found to decrease sleepiness, while blue wavelength light activates areas of the brain involved in executive functions. Whether you want to increase productivity while working at home or just make your rooms a little more stylish, here are seven striking lighting brands that are worth considering.

1. PELLE

PELLE is an independent design studio that combines the practices of art and engineering to create expressive design objects. The studio produces an array of lighting fixtures, from glowing beam sconces to modern, floral chandeliers. A personal favorite is the Lure Chandelier—each hand-sculpted blossom is spotlit by a suspended LED light source and is the perfect combination of texture, structure, and delicacy.

From hanging pendants to chandeliers to floor lights, Tom Dixon offers a diverse range of futuristic and innovative products perfect for the modern home. These spherical, golden pendants, part of the Melt collection, provide imperfect, organic, and naturalistic lighting. According to the Tom Dixon site, “Melt is evocative of molten glass, the interior of a melting glacier, or images of deep space.”

Founded in Merano, Italy, FLOS has revolutionized the art of lighting by honoring tradition while embracing innovation. Its offerings include residential, commercial, and custom-made concept-based products. Though FLOS lighting structures are all unique, this Serena table light stands out among the rest. Inspired by nature, this minimalist table light symbolizes a leaf twirling in the wind. The structure reduces the LED source’s visual impact and provides indirect and reflected light.

Beirut-based designer Richard Yasmine has created a series of hand-blown light bulbs that rest on bird’s nests, making them look more like works of art than traditional lighting pieces. By using sustainable materials like brass and glass—an intentional effort to highlight the message of recycling—and featuring three, semi-precious stones to resemble natural landscapes, Richard hopes that his Wake Up Call collection will raise awareness of local, environmental challenges that affect our communities and encourage people to make sustainable choices.
