I want a couple of plug sockets I can control with the Google Home/Nest app, any recommendations? Just for a couple of lamps, so nothing fancy needed and the cheaper the better.

I've heard the IKEA Tradfri range play quite nice with Homekit, so would assume you can use with google home too

Yea saw the IKEA ones but couldn't find any mention of working with Google Home in the description, probably going to go with the Screwfix ones cos its a lot closer than IKEA and I'm lazy, but cheers anyway

Does anyone have an uplighter recommendation? We’ve just installed a Tom Dixon Melt and can barely tell that it’s turned on! Currently it’s the only light source (other than a Christmas tree) in quite a large room 7x8m

I have a Tom Dixon Cooper ball pendant which gave fuck all light out too, looks good though Laughing out loud I put a brighter bulb in it which improved it.
I have the Hay rope trick lamp which is good,you can have as an uplighter well you can point it at whatever angle you want and it's dimmable. Just the aesthetic isn't right for the room so I'm currently looking for something else too

Great objects, but shite lights! This is it turned on Laughing out loud I switched it to a 1500 lumen globe now, which is marginally better


Thanks for the link, will check one out in person

I think this might be the most style over function thing I've ever seen. A fucking light cover that means the bulb cannot illuminate the room Laughing out loud Laughing out loud

Coming soon from Tom Dixon: The chocolate teapot

I must admit it does looks dope, though.

As great as that light looks (and it looks amazing), kinda defeats its purpose by being a shit light source.

Had one and took it down because of the same.
They do look the business, but annoyed me that I had to keep using my uplighter which also wasn't bright enough to illuminate the room.

It looks like your room is finished now so don't think youre gonna want to do something like this, but I installed the same pendant for a customer but also dimmable downlights on their own switch which worked and looked nice when it was all done.
