Achieve Your Acrylic Look With Our Crystal Collection

Embracing Acrylic In Your Interiors

Acrylic is a material that has been around since the 70’s, and one that we’re not expecting to disappear anytime soon. Acrylic furniture looks the part in modern day interiors, with sleek lines and sharp edges that can ensure the visual weight of a room is perfectly balanced.

The transparency of acrylic allows it to fit in with almost any type of décor, whether you’re seeking to complement a minimalist look or add an element of ‘cool’ into a more traditional looking space.

While it may look like glass, it is incredibly strong. Acrylic’s sheer versatility means that it has become a popular material for furniture including coffee tables, bar stools and bedside tables as well as in element such as shelving and guardrails for staircases to provide a look that is less visually-intrusive.

If you’re not quite ready to embrace acrylic furniture, why not add it subtly with your chosen accessories? The transparent light switches from our Crystal Collection are a great place to start and give you the freedom to showcase your wall coverings without compromise.

Paint It Black

Word on the street is that matt black is the new black. This is a finish that can work to create a sophisticated and seductive vibe in any room, whether it’s matt black countertops in your kitchen or matt black light switches to complement the moody interior of your bedroom.

Juxtapose black against lighter walls, or reflective materials and pair with neutrals or steely blues that will work well in the majority of spaces. Remember that using colour sparingly can help to highlight architectural features.

A matt black finish is available in a number of our collections, including the modern Penthouse Collection and the Classic Square Edge Collection.

At Wandsworth, each of our collections combine innovation, quality and heritage and are tailored to meet modern demands. Whether you are a homeowner, interior designer, architect or contractor, get in touch today to find out how we can create electrical accessories that will achieve your design vision.
