The small perfectly formed sitting room in the designer Nicky Haslam's country house is the ideal cosy space. The low Victorian bench takes the place of a coffee table. This soft colour on the walls gives a complexion-flattering glow, especially if the buff card-shaded lamps are lit. Use subdued light upwards, but bright pools below for reading. The sofas are slip-covered in a hard-wearing off-white cotton.
The stained glass Billiard collection in Tiffany Bronze Metal takes its cues from the game, sporting colorful, detailed illustrations and classic Victorian themes. Use over a pool table or kitchen island for optimal illumination.
