A closer look at Rathbone

Whether you're a late into the night reader, or you're simply looking for a discrete wall light, Rathbone is a good solution. Not only is it dimmable - ideal when your partner is dozing but you're not - but you can also recess it into our Charlie headboard or into a wall, and bend it's light to shine over you or hide out the way.

Materials and finish

Rathbone is nickel plated: a finish that’s similar to chrome (both are pure chemical elements), but that has a slightly warmer undertone that’s easier to use in more traditional spaces. The satin finish makes it subtler and softens any glare.

Where to use it

Bedrooms are the most obvious places to use Rathbone, and if you have our Charlie headboard, it can be fitted into the purposely-designed slots underneath the upholstery. But you could also have it installed anywhere that you need the focused light, such as in the wall or a bookcase behind a reading chair. We do recommend using a qualified electrician to install Rathbone in either location.

Just so you know

It’s best that a qualified electrician fits this light because it’ll need wiring in.

And if you want to use it in a bathroom, just make sure it’s more than 60cm away from the water. Any closer, and you’ll need to use an IP44-rated light (like our Brunswick).
