The Serious Difference

Key Features

Classic Wall Light

  • Classic Wall Light

    Deliberately Narrow Beam

    The light that started it all. The Classic Light is designed to be less intense than our other ranges, with a deliberately narrow beam pattern focusing directly onto your book rather than around the room.

    If you have no eye conditions, are reading books only and looking for a light with a focused beam, the Classic light could be ideal.

    If you are considering reading larger publications as well, you may prefer our Alex Light which has a much wider beam pattern.

  • LED Wall Book Light

    4x More Light on your Page

    Unlike multi-directional lamps, the Serious design focuses all of its colour corrected light on your page, making it many times brighter than traditional lights.

    By comparison with a traditional 60W filament bulb, the Classic Wall Light throws 4x more light onto your page.

    This helps to correct the typical loss of light reaching the retina of two thirds by the time we reach 60 years old.

  • Narrow Beam Book Light

    Energy Efficient LED

    Despite throwing 4x more light than a 60W filament bulb onto your page, the Classic Wall Light uses just 3W of power. Read in comfort without worrying about your energy consumption.

    In addition, the Classic Wall Light also runs cool to the touch, allowing you to read without any heat thrown down on to you. A perfect LED Wall Book Light.

Option 1

Body Finish

The colour of the light head and bracket.


The sleek black body finish is our most popular option, chosen for its minimalist industrial chic aesthetic. Choose from black, nickel or brass flexible arms with this body finish.

Heritage White

The stunning heritage white body finish is an elegant choice, boasting a delicate off-white hue which blends in perfectly with neutral surroundings. Available with nickel flexible arm only.

  • Black body finish with black flexible arm
  • Heritage white body finish with nickel flexible arm

Option 2

Finish - Flexible Arm Colour

Finish - Flexible Arm Colour

  • Black

    The brass base metal is double sprayed and double-baked to produce a durable matte black coating for the fully flexible stay-put arm.

  • Nickel

    A 15-20 micron brushed nickel coating on the brass base metal gives a sharp hi-tech brushed finish.

  • Brass

    The 20-30 micron of zapon-treated brass on brass provides a long-lasting classic look when paired with the real wood mahogany effect handle.

Option 3

Plug-in or Hard-wire (240V only)

Opt for a plug-in transformer that plugs in to any UK 3-pin socket.

Alternatively, if you'd like to hard-wire your light, they can be supplied with an in-line transformer.

Please note that when selecting the hard-wire option, there is a driver that comes with the light which will need to be inserted into your wall.

Lights with a plug-in transformer can be dimmable or non-dimmable. Hard-wired lights can only be non-dimmable.

Option 4


The dimming function allows for your light to be finely adjusted to your specific needs. Turn down the light intensity when a softer light is required, then adjust it back up to full brightness when you need more light to get clarity.

Dimmer function is only available on Classic Wall Lights with a plug-in transformer.
Simply hold down the on/off switch and release when the light output has reached your desired intensity.
