Design lamps: stylish mood makers

Design lighting, what would our interior be without it

Not a long introduction about lighting plans, but an argument for design lamps. Do they deserve to be put in the spotlight themselves instead of shining their light on an interior item. Looks like you have a thing for design lighting otherwise you wouldn't have ended up on this page 'design lamps'. Whether you're scrolling around for inspiration or you're specifically looking for a second-hand designer lamp, we've got you covered. At Whoppah we have room for every type of luminous design object. Design hanging lamps, ceiling lamps, chandeliers and table lamps, fill the whole house with beautiful points of light.

Right design lamps, right atmosphere

A no-brainer, but true: lighting is indispensable in any interior. Yet it is not something that we are concerned with from the very first moment when it comes to the design of our home, even though they are so decisive for the atmosphere. Just think how cozy they make it at night or how good they are at highlighting a specific piece of furniture or artwork. Just a side road, because Whoppah is also the go-to address for second-hand art. Back to the design lighting. Ready for a mini metamorphosis? Then start with a clean slate of designer lamps. The type of lamp, style and type of lighting have the potential to completely change the look and feel of the room. From serene and relaxed to luxurious and even glamorous. To give you an idea: a Murano glass chandelier gives a completely different effect than a white ceiling lamp. Or take a vintage table lamp that spreads a different light than a standing modern design lamp. Moral of the story: it is good to think about the desired lighting effect and the style you want to create.

Create optical illusions with designer lighting

Did you know that with the right lighting you can make a room look bigger? Is so. How to do that is actually quite simple. Here they come, three tips:

Tip 1: Avoid a bunch of designer lamps

Make sure that all designer lamps are scattered throughout the room. Nice one light source on the ceiling, but no matter how big it is, it will never fail to create a spatial effect. The advice: mix and match an x number of design lamps that you spread throughout the living room, dining room or bedroom. Floor lights in the corners, hanging lamps for a portion of central light and wall or table lamps to highlight a piece of furniture or art object here and there. Multiple lamps means multiple mood levels.

Tip 2: Go up

Make room for long design hanging lamps and make the room appear larger in one fell swoop. Or fall for several hanging lamps in different lengths. This emphasizes the height of the room even more. Child can do laundry.

Tip 3: Mirror, mirror on the wall

Hang your design lamp in front of a mirror. An old, well-known interior trick that still works well. By hanging the design lighting in front of the mirror, the light reflects, which immediately makes the room a size bigger.
