2019 was a great time for us at Lighting Direct. We enjoyed another year of brightening your mornings, illuminating your homes, and lighting up your parties.

From the everyday ceiling lights to the atmospheric lamps – and everything in between – today we’re putting the spotlight on what turned out to be your favourite lights last year.

#1 – Eglo Riga Twin LED Outdoor Wall Light (29926)

Riga Outdoor Wall Light

First up, we have the Riga LED Wall Light.

A set of galvanised steel twin lights with a stunning anthracite finish – they emit an up-and-down pattern of light that is ideal for enhancing the entrance to your home, or for framing doorways.

It’s easy to see why the Riga has been our top seller for two years running, as the simple style and great price makes it a must-have piece for every home. Complete with PIR sensor for energy saving, this product is also available in stainless steel, for a timeless finish.

#3 – Astro Milo and Amalfi Ceramic Wall Lights (28494 and 28706)

Up and Down Wall Light

Both the Milo and the Amalfi ceramic wall lights were popular last year. With their smart and classic style, neutral colours and ambient up-and-down light patterns – they’re perfect for any interior.

The neutral ceramic finish acts as a blank canvas, so these wall lights can be painted if preferred. Whether you match them to your wall colour, or brighten them up with an artistic design, these ceramic lights are wonderfully versatile.

We have a wide range of up-and-down wall lights available. View the full selection here.

#4 – Eterna Eco Batten (61053)

Eco LED Batten

The next entry into our bestsellers list is this Economy LED, weatherproof polycarbonate batten. Pre-wired with a 1.5 metre cable, these products give off a cool white colour and have an average life expectancy of 30,000 hours.

While commercial lighting isn’t what we’re usually known for here at Lighting Direct – this product is great value and perfect for garages, sheds, lofts and sheltered areas. So we can see why it’s popular.

With a high energy rating, long life expectancy and guarantee – these Eterna Eco Battens are the perfect alternative to fluorescent tubes. Offering the same bright, even light, but without the excess energy use. They can even be recycled at the end of their (very long) lifetime.

Ideal for modern living spaces where smart illumination is required, the Spot 79 Spotlight in black is always near the top of our bestselling list.

With a stylish and modern feel, these spotlights are perfect for kitchens or illuminating gallery walls.

Made from aluminium, these spotlights are adjustable with 350° rotation and 180° tilt, so you can point the light to focus on a particular area – whether it’s food preparation stations, artwork on the walls or anything else.

Combining flexibility, durability and style – this spotlight enhances any contemporary setting.

Recessed Downlight

The Trimless Fire Rated Downlights are perfect for seamless contemporary lighting in your home. With a white finish and a glass diffuser, these downlights are set into the ceiling and are plastered over for a seamless finish.
