Summer Reading Guide

Low Vision 15/07/2022

Summer is finally here! If, like us, you take any opportunity to fill balmy, sunny days with an unputdownable book, this guide is for you. We’ve put together the best reading spots, bookstagram accounts and reading lamps so you can unwind with the perfect book in comfort and in style!

Pick your reading spot

There’s nothing like the atmosphere of a good library for some peace and quiet. For a myriad of rooms to wander in, head to the British Library, or visit ‘the busiest library in London’ and gaze out over the docklands at Canada Water Library. For some fresh air and fabulous views over London, pick up your sunglasses, grab a cold drink ands soak up the sun with a good book on the beautiful Hampstead Heath.

Grab a good lamp

If you’re in the mood for a comfy, lazy day, make sure you protect your eyes and make your reading session as comfortable as possible with one of our reading lamps. Curl up on the sofa with our Electra Floor Lamp and choose from 3 colour temperatures- Daylight, Cool light or Warm light- for a relaxing atmosphere. If you’re reading in bed, the large shade and long 56cm reach of the Tricolor will ensure that you won’t spend your time hunched under your lamp so you can enjoy your bedtime read in comfort and without eye strain. On the go? Our Foldi Go Rechargeable Lamp is perfect for summer travels – you’ll never be without great lighting to devour your summer reading in style.
