Six of The Best Metallic Brass and Black Wall Lights

If you follow my instagram account, here (shameless plug) you will have seen that we have recently redecorated our lounge and although the paint work is finished we’re still a way off finding all the decorative items that we need to complete the look. We have some lovely wall lights either side of the mirror over our fireplace, with some pretty vintage shades and although we still really like them, they have a chrome finish and the blush pink walls which we have painted our lounge are crying out for some brass accessories to enhance that colour.

Current Wall lights

So I’ve been scanning the High Street and online to find some of the best black and brass wall lights on the market. The black is necessary to offset the pink and stop it looking too saccharine and will also pick out the off black paint work by Farrow and Ball that we have painted all the woodwork in.

Our lounge is quite an eclectic mix of styles and periods and I thought instead of having a traditional style wall light such as the ones we currently have, a mid century style would work well?

Here are some of my favourites that I’ve found.

These beauties are my current favourite but are a bit pricey and I’m not sure after the total spend on the room, I can quite stretch to them, but they are the dream? A perfect blend of elegance and mid century style by Bertfrank, also available at Heals.


These brass beauties are from French Connection and the design is also available in a lamp version.


These lovely lights are from Oliver Bonas and are a very possible contender? I particularly like the wide shade as lighting is so very important in a living space and I always like to light a room with a mixture of table lamps, floor lamps and wall lights.


Birdie short wall light by Holloways Of Ludlow also available through Trouva

The Ogilvy Light by is a great very affordable wall light if you wanted a task light rather than a pair of decorative wall lights, as we do, but for the design and price at £59.00, I had to include it.

For something slightly more industrial the antique brass wall light by Iconic Lights at £20.00, bargain I hear you cry!

    We have the Ogilvy wall lamp from Made and it’s fantastic for the price. It’s perfect for a reading lamp over an armchair. And I’ve been coveting the Birdie light for a while after seeing it on another IG account. Have you seen these ones too? Brass for the win!

      Hi Jen,

      sorry for the delay, I’ve had a bit of trouble with my blog keep going down recently & tried to reply to you yesterday with no success. I love the lamp and I also took a look at the House Dr lamps you recommended, they are gorgeous. We are still searching for the ones we both like, such a pain being married to a creative type sometimes! Hope you’re well lovely x
