The Northern Light Fair is held every year in conjunction with the Stockholm Furniture Fair. This year approximately 100 exhibitors demonstrating the latest in home lighting, LEDs, halogen lamps, fiber lights and glittering chandeliers came together to reach the 40,000 visitors who turned out to attend both fairs.

Of the many new lamps premiering at the fair, these were our favorites.
