Let there be Light


Marquee lights are making their way to market, and thank heavens. They add sparkle to events, charm to living rooms and calm to bedrooms. And quite frankly, they’re just a bit cool.

Here’s a few ways that you can bring a bit of cool into your life, no matter what you’re celebrating.

Starting from birth, marquee lights can act as a gentle night light for baby. Designs are mostly gender neutral (as surely we’ve left such stereotyping behind by now?) and all of them will capture baby’s attention and imagination. You could use a heart, a star or arrow, or even the first letter of their name.

When they’re a bit older, a marquee light becomes more of a feature piece to reflect their personality.

Marquee lights are an obvious choice for birthdays – probably significant ones, where you’re having a party with lots of people and feel like showing off a bit. But not showing off too much, which is why marquee lights are perfect – they are effortlessly chic.

Or, if you don’t want to be too obvious about your age, make people do the maths and give them the year of your birth, or wedding.

Weddings are where marquee lights really come into their own. Cheaper than flowers, and more visually engaging, marquee lights will become a focal point for you and your guests. Spell out LOVE, light up your initials, or have a single ampersand mounted so that guests can stand either side and have their photo taken.
