It is autumn in the northern hemisphere, where shorter days inevitably yield to longer nights. While temperatures fall, people and nature busy themselves in preparation for winter. As the Earth tilts on her axis and the sun sinks lower on the horizon, those countries farthest from the equator experience the most fleeting of days. The waning light, often crisp and golden during autumn’s peak, turns a gloomy grey-blue as winter creeps in. As a matter of course, thoughts turn to seeking warmth and enjoying cosy hibernation. Moving indoors, we hole up, snuggle down and strive to keep the cold at bay.

In colder countries, light plays a central role during the long autumn and winter months. With careful consideration, light will create the perfect homey ambience, leading to a feeling of cosiness and togetherness. The transformative properties of light act to heighten the senses, improving emotional, physical and mental well-being. In autumn, and especially winter, warm light is integral to the balance and harmony of a space. Importantly, it helps to satisfy the human need for comfort, warmth and sanctuary.

The significance of light

LZF appreciates the considerable significance of light in countries exposed to winter’s icy grip. Where darkness reigns outside, the use of warm, subtle lighting inside appeals greatly to the senses, soothing body, mind and soul. With their natural timber veneers, LZF’s aesthetic, handmade wood lamps diffuse a soft and reassuring glow. Moreover, an eclectic choice of lamps and a range of veneer colours ensures there is a light to suit every scenario and mood.

Light is an enabler, a companion and a friend. There is no denying the importance of light to people, particularly in cold, harsh climates. A warm light encourages warmth and vitality, from the heartening flicker of candlelight to the pleasing radiance of a thoughtful luminaire. On a cold and dark night, as we step inside, there is nothing more welcoming than the affable glow that emanates from a cheerful lamp.
