Designer-look Matalan lighting collection brightens up homes

It looks like Matalan have officially taken the crown for affordable designer-look lighting on the high street

Last September the retailer entered the spotlight by launching an impressive debut lighting range. The first Matalan lighting collection showed great promise to light up the gaping hole on the high street, after we lost lighting heros BHS (*sobs*).

The new additions for this season, if you can believe it, are even better! With designer looking Sputnik style ceiling lights and Art Deco inspired floor lamps, the new range is perfect for adding a touch of both glamour and ambience to homes this autumn.
