Window Lights are wonderful way to greet visitors to your house at Christmas, and here Andy Taylor reviews Konstsmide's contemporary and traditional range of Candlesticks, Welcome Lights and Silhouettes.
There's nothing more traditional at Christmas than festoon lighting with strings of bulbs stretched across the front of a house or decorating the garden. David Coton reviews these old style lights that have now been brought right up to date by the use of LEDs.
Draped over or inside a porch, attached to the roof, on trees, or along the path, festoon lighting is a wonderfully bright and colourful way to welcome guests.
Konstsmide Outdoor Christmas Lights consist of twenty coloured bulbs, lit by LEDs rather than traditional energy wasting filaments. Classically shaped and redolent of yesteryear, these lights may use less energy but that doesn't diminish their impact.
Similar Coloured Christmas Lights that flamboyantly stand out from the crowd can be added to Konstsmide's 24v extendible light system and become part of an outstanding display with their red, green, gold, white and blue colours.
Premier have Multi-coloured frosted balls that are also multi-functional with a choice of eight modes. As they are low voltage, these lights can be used inside the house or outdoors.
Clear LED bulbs are also available in sets of twenty, from Konstsmide and Lumineo, a leading high quality Dutch brand. A black cable is used for easy concealment and they can be used to brightly decorate the exterior of the house or garden.
Both Konstsmide and Premier offer traditionally styled lanterns lit by LEDs. Although they appear Dickensian, the light and colour is very vivid, much more intense than in the past and very much more energy efficient.
The Premier Chasing Christmas Lantern Set has 40 or 80 lanterns and can be used indoors or outside, to create a wonderful spectacle of colour, light and movement.
Christmas lighting is all about illuminating dark winter evenings and transforming a bleak monochrome landscape into something much more colourful, there's no doubt that festoon lights perform this function tremendously well.
