I was recently invited to the press launch of a brand new homewares brand called Houseof. With everything going on around here with the renovation (catch up here), I couldn’t get down to London for the press show, sadly but when they emailed me press images showing off the new wares, I knew immediately I just found a new favourite source for good quality, well-priced and totally on-trend lighting.

Houseof was founded by Helen White and Michael Jones who have both worked for some of the High Street’s biggest names, including one of my favourites, Made.com. Their website has only just gone live on the 2nd of April and I’m already so excited by the offerings!

Initially, they are focusing on lighting (and a few early accessories) but are looking to expand to other areas in the future. But let me say, the lighting collection is incredible and if this is a sign of what’s to come, then I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for the future.

Now, by way of full disclosure, after seeing the new product launch, I approached them about working together on my kitchen and dining room renovations and I’m thrilled they agreed! I’ve not been paid for this post, however – I just really wanted to share the brand with you.

But for me, working with them seemed a really good fit and this is normally how I choose my sponsors for any collaborations, not only because I thought the products looked amazing but because I feel that considering how high-end they look, I feel they are priced so competitively. It can be difficult to find lighting at that mid-range price that looks this good but they have really delivered on such a huge collection.

The range covers everything from small table lamps to wall lights, floor lamps and large pendants and comes in a myriad of different colours and finishes too – from matt black to soft blush pink, gold and brass, copper, royal blue, green, marble and so much more. If you are looking for contemporary lighting at a really reasonable price point, you are going to love their stuff.

I’m not going to reveal what I picked out for the kitchen because I haven’t 100% decided on what I want just yet – the choice is just too good! I’m just waiting for the first fix electrics to happen on the extension first (which is very soon!) so I can chat to my electrician about what’s going where! But I really think that my choices are going to look amazing in both the newer, more contemporary part of the extension as well as contrasting with the more traditional feel of the original dining space. So stay tuned for that!

And I do think that’s partly why I love it so much. I’ve always had a bit of a thing for more contemporary pieces when they are contrasted with more traditional features so whether you have a more contemporary look in your home or love a bit of more traditional architecture and design, these really can fit right in.

Do check out the brand spaking new Houseof website (there’s SO much more than just what I’ve shown) and give them a little follow on Instagram and tell them I sent you! ;) In the meantime, any favourites of what I’ve shared so far? Is Houseof a brand you might consider for your own lighting? Let me know in the comments!
