Christmas Starry Magic
There is no doubt that the star belongs in our festively decorated home. Christmas stars in a natural look made of paper are perfect for creating a cosy atmosphere. You can also illuminate your windows with Christmas star lights in rich colours made of velvet or reflective materials made of perforated metal. Depending on your taste, you can opt for a minimalist silhouette with LEDs or a statement piece with many points.
Magical Christmas Decorations
Dark winter evenings are so much more enjoyable when the mantelpiece, dressers and coffee tables are decorated festively and radiate warm and cosy lighting. From Scandi-inspired Christmas stars to colourful fairy lights, there is a piece to suit everyone!
Festive Christmas Trees
There is no need to cut down a real tree for Christmas! Artificial Christmas trees, already festively adorned with warm white string lights, are a great alternative and can be reused for years. Stylized Christmas trees are a popular lighting trend in 2023. With these modern pre-lit Christmas trees, a tree silhouette is created by positioning fairy lights around a pole.
Christmas Window Decor
Christmas window decorations are one of the best ways to decorate your home for the holiday season. With the days getting shorter, window decorations draw attention from the outside and create bright focal points, offering a sneak peek of the festively decorated winter wonderland inside.
Christmas Essential String Lights
LED string lights are among the absolute essential Christmas decorations and add a festive glow to your home and garden. Smart string lights can be controlled via an app which allows you to customise the display and set different light colours, animation and effects. In addition to string lights, you can also use LED curtain lights and nets, as well as LED rope lights.
Create a Winter Wonderland
The view into the garden becomes a pure delight with festive outdoor Christmas decor. From LED string lights to animal motifs, our fairy lights are perfect for jazzing up trees, flowerbeds and railings. Controlled by timers or smart home devices, you can limit the lighting routines to selected hours in the evening and enjoy your Christmas lights more consciously while saving energy and lowering your bills.
Christmas Gift Idea Portable Lamps
Portable lamps make great Christmas gifts for family and friends. They promote well-being and cosiness, are super practical and add a design highlight to any home. These battery-operated lamps do not only create a cosy ambience inside of the house, but also sweeten the summer season as most portable lamps are IP-rated and can be taken outside.
Checklist: Energy Conscious Christmas Lighting
There are several ways you can be more conscious about your energy usage during the festive period. Following thse simple tips, you can easily combine energy savings with cosy Christmas lighting that make everyone excited for the most beautiful time of the year.
Use LED technology
For several years, Christmas decorations featured incandescent or halogen bulbs. It is worth considering a switch to LED to save up to 90% on your energy. Likely, the entire Christmas lighting will not consume more electricity than a single piece of decoration in the past.
Turn the lights off at night
If lighting is not needed in rooms where we are not present or areas like hallways, it's always advisable to turn it off. This also applies to Christmas lighting. Limiting the lighting duration by switching off the decorations at night is a common practice and helps to reduce our energy consumption significantly.
So that we can doze off on the sofa without having to worry about switching off the lights, many modern Christmas products have a built-in timer that automatically switches them off after 6 hours, for example - and on again after 18 hours. Separate timers or Smart Home integration allow for an even more precise setting.
Timeless Christmas decor
Durability and longevity: when it comes to Christmas lighting, we recommend going for timeless decor that you can look forward to in the next year as well. Modern Christmas decorations are designed for the purpose of lasting for many years - e.g. in timeless Scandi style. Going for timeless designs reduces waste production and thus helps our environment.
Renewable raw materials
Lighting made from renewable raw materials is not just a current trend, it's also essential for modern environmental awareness. Our Christmas lighting range features many decorations which are created from paper, wood, rattan or jute and exude sustainable Christmas magic.
Networking and remote control
You're invited to dinner and forgot to switch off the lights at home? That's when Christmas decorations that are networked with the Smart Home come into play. For example, a star light with a smart plug, which is an adapter between the plug and the socket, can be adjusted from anywhere and makes the Smart Home come alive!
