We are often asked, "How much light is emitted from your lights?". For most designs (excluding Navicula, Maru and Baskets) the output is determined by:

Choice of Bulb/Lamp

The brighter the bulb/lamp the more brightness you will get. Our lights do create shadows, however, and this is one of their advantages. A moody dappled effect can be created at night.

Addtional Lighting

Many houses have a layering of light including table lamps, downlights, and reflected light from other rooms.

Design choice

A closed-form such as Floral, Coral or Sola will only emit dappled light. Whereas lights like Kina, Flax and Snowflake have an opening thus allowing some light to project.
