High Definition Wall Lights

The Aston Martin of reading lights

Remember when words just leapt off the page? Enjoy reading under the same light used to show off the fine brush strokes and colour hues in the Van Gogh and other museums. The best light we make and the one Alex uses himself.


You told us that a great reading light needs to help you see clearly, be personal to your eyes and be easy to adjust. This is the ultimate reading light, designed to offer high definition clarity and superb colour rendition. Whether you are using the light for reading, artwork, crafting, or any other hobby - the High Definition will really help.

High Definition Head Details

Handy Features

Fine-tune the brightness with the integrated dimmer wheel, situated conveniently on the back of the light head. Easily adjust the beam direction using the built-in handle, or alter the light spread with the diffuser lens and flexible stayput arm.

Daylight Quality

The unique to Serious Readers halogen light engine offers a light output unparalleled by any other man-made source. Colours are rendered as they would be in true daylight, and maximum clarity means you will be able to see fine print and detail more clearly.

Wall Model Details

HD Wall Models

The cable is fed through the base of the bracket and the control gear is housed in the special plug. This model is not available for direct wiring into lighting systems or for hiding the cabling inside a wall cavity.


High Definition Technical Details

Check out the Alex and Classic lights for these options.

For Alex and Classics - There are two formats:


The cable is fed through the base of the bracket and the control gear is housed in the special plug.


The non-dimmable versions of these models are available for direct wiring into lighting systems or for hiding the cabling inside a wall cavity


Flexible Arm Options

Black - The brass base metal is double-sprayed and double-baked to produce a durable matt black coating for the fully flexible stay-put arm. For a light that refuses to dominate the room, designed to blend and vanish into its surroundings, the all black finish is ideal. It is also the most popular finish.

Nickel - A 15-20 micron brushed nickel coating on the brass base metal gives a sharp, hi-tech brushed finish. The black base, handle and lamp head make for a stylish modern contrast. Perfect for your workspace and beautiful in a modern setting.

Brass - The 20-30 micron of zapon-treated brass on brass provides a long-lasting classic look, and the real wood mahogany-effect handles on the heavyweight floor model adds a final flourish, making this combination the perfect match for the more traditional space.


High Definition Head Details

Dimmer Option - The dimming function allows for your light to be finely adjusted to your specific needs. Turn down the light intensity using the red dial (pictured above) when a softer light is required, then with one finger adjust it back up to full brightness when you need more light to get clarity. Dimming is standard on our High Definition lights and is taken up by the vast majority of Serious Readers suitable for bedside reading lights. The saving on Alex and Classic lights to de-specify the dimmer is £30.
