Downward and lateral reflecting lamps, the PH 5 and PH 5 mini (later introduced in 2017) is made of five spun aluminium shades. On launch, a new Modern White will be introduced to join tonal combinations in Orange, Rose, Red, Green, Blue and Grey. Starting with the darkest first, a gradient of tones feature on each of the lamp’s five shades. A contrasting anti-glare reflector sits underneath providing a warm luminosity. Bronze rolled aluminium struts hold each of the five shades together.
Form following function, the design of a Louis Poulsen product is tailored to reflect and support the rhythm of natural light. Although suited to contemporary schemes, the PH 5 series works equally well in heritage spaces too. Its craftsmanship and carefully considered design create a beautiful silhouette of incandescent light which, in turn, provides a gentle, warming contrast to the raw textures of warehouse homes and industrial conversions.
In partnership with ARAM and this fantastic celebration of iconic design, we’re collaborating on two exciting opportunities to win a PH 5 and PH 5 mini in a colour of your choice. For details on how to enter and for a full list of terms and conditions please see below.

Surface Design Show will return to London’s Business Design Centre 6-8 February. The show has a packed programme, featuring over 170 exhibitors presenting an exciting collection of hand crafted surfaces and the latest technological advances in architectural lighting.
From the latest launches to timeless classics, collections from this year’s exhibitors are proving trends such as terrazzo and geometric pattern will continue to be a key focus in surface materials.
Warehouse Home is a proud media partner to Surface Design Show, so our editorial team has highlighted three key and emerging trends evident in this season’s presentations.
Linear and geometric forms allow a variety of compositional options, enabling homeowners and designers to create truly unique spaces. Concrete effect designs from Grestec Tiles offset tone and shape to create “elegant chromatic geometries” in chalky colours.
Bright & Beautiful
Dramatic and daring tiles are grabbing our attention this season with statement designs creating distinct focal points. The Chroma collection from BluePrint Ceramics is available in several colour variations and enhanced with a wood grain effect.
As a new year stretches ahead of us, many homeowners will be turning their thoughts to making interiors updates. If your makeover plans include the kitchen and bathroom, you’re most likely considering updating your flooring. We’ve teamed up with Tile Monkey to identify some of the best ways to update your home with original floor tiles from their range.
A tiled floor, laid in a timeless herringbone pattern, completes this modern living space with vintage industrial style elements.
Tile Monkey is a one-stop shop, offering an extensive selection of wall and floor tiles, available in many different styles, thicknesses, and finishes for the kitchen, bathroom and throughout the home. With an increase in demand for stylish floor tiles, Tile Monkey continues to expand its already wide range of designs, from contemporary to classic, natural stone to wood effect. The tiles are not only good quality, they are also affordable.
We reviewed Tile Monkey’s extensive range and selected some of our favourite designs:
1. Herringbone Has It
In Warehouse Home Issue Seven, we featured the widespread impact of parquet design across furniture and homeware design. There is something timeless and classic about a herringbone pattern that lends itself perfectly to interiors schemes both vintage and modern. The image above demonstrates just how stylish a herringbone layout can look.
2. Wood You Believe It
In many respects, nothing can beat a real hard wood floor. But if you’re looking for a cost-effective and easy-to-clean contemporary alternative, the new generation of porcelain wood-effect floor tiles are an ideal solution, particularly for bathrooms, kitchens and hallways. The matt finish of these natural brown tiles, means that they are non-slip and don’t need to be polished. They’re ideal from rooms that are filled with natural light as they aren’t shiny. The fittingly named ‘Forest’ tiles have the appearance of aged, multicoloured timber.
3. Black Is Back
These beautiful black ‘Aporia’ porcelain tiles can be used on both the floor and wall to create a sophisticated bathroom scheme. In practical terms, the porcelain is stain and water resistant and the matt finish means the tiles do not have to be polished and are non-slip, all making this design ideally suited to a bathroom setting. ‘Denali’ is another striking oversized square floor tile, offering a more distinctive stone-effect pattern. For a slightly more ‘modern rustic’ treatment, in the bathroom or the kitchen, you might like to consider these large rectangular ‘Pomezia’ textured wall and floor tiles have an effective slate appearance and a tactile finish.
4. Shades Of Grey
If black flooring feels too dark and dramatic for your space, a softer but no less chic solution is grey tiling. Tile Monkey has a very large selection of grey floor tiles, such as these elegant and understated ‘Carbona’ tiles. These ‘Foggia’ floor tiles are particularly well suited to a heritage conversion or industrial inspired space. For a bold and modern geometric flooring treatment, we suggest the ‘Vigor’ hexagonal shaped tile in grey.
5. Perfect Pumice
Tile Monkey’s selection of pumice inspired porcelain tiles are another way to channel chic shades of grey in an interior scheme. We particularly like the blue-grey tones of the ‘Sandra’ tiles, which are available in seven different dimensions.
To help you make your final decision, complimentary tile samples are dispatched by Tile Monkey via First Class post, enabling you to touch and feel your selected tiles before purchasing. Orders placed before 12pm can be delivered the next day, meaning you can move ahead with your home makeover as soon as possible.
For further tiling inspiration why not order Warehouse Home Issue Seven, which includes a stunning review of grey and pastel wall and floor tiles (shown below).

September 2017 marked the fifteenth anniversary of London Design Festival. To celebrate, the Warehouse Home interior design team curated the ideal warehouse apartment in the heart of popular Shoreditch. Visitors travelled across Britain and from overseas to visit the pop-up home and meet our team. From vintage originals to contemporary classics, every individually selected item was admired.
Located in an old match factory in London, our team discovered a space boasting raw brick and with obvious potential. Much of the brickwork had been painted white but our designers created a more dramatic effect with the application of two deep shades ofblue emulsion, enhancing the unique textural qualities of brick and giving life to a dream home. The L-shaped and open-plan layout of the space afforded the Warehouse Home design team the opportunity to show all the benefits of typical New York style loft living, creating separate areas within a single flexible living arrangement.
