The trend for industrial, rustic decoration in home wares has moved into Christmas this year. Think copper, metals, bare (exposed) bulbs, and wood. Mix these elements in with natural firs, pine cones or berries for the perfect industrial Christmas look.
The fastest way to get the industrial look when it comes to Chirstmas lights is with NOMA’s The Bulb – a 40 Bulb Light Chain with Classic Edison Style Bulbs. They lookc really effective whether you choose to cluster them together, or string them along a fireplace or on your tree.
Or if you want to give your mantlepeice, table, or front door an industrial feel then a wooden and metal lantern complete with exposed bulb is great for adding a welcoming glow to Winter days.
If you need extra lights to decorate foliage or a mantelpiece then steer clear of fairy lights – this look is all about exposing the elements of a product – instead simple rice lights on copper wires will give you that gorgeous Christmas sparkle in keeping with the industrial Christmas trend.
For a sophisticated outdoor Christmas display keep your outdoor lights subtle, with icicle or berry lights to emphasise architectural features like windows, porches, or log sheds, and simple light chains to trees for an instant outdoor Christmas tree. Once you’ve put the basics in place it’s time to stand back and see which other areas of your house or garden could benefit from a little sprinkling of Christmas magic: add simple snowflake lights to trees or a wall, and Christmas stake lights along a path.
The Classic Christmas Outdoor Look: Get the manor-house look with light chains that accentuate the features of your house – dress your lights along the top of your house, windows, door or porch. Decorate any flower beds or trees at the front of the house in the same lights for a coordinated look that will be the talk of the town.
Create that Christmas Magic with LED Animals: keep the lights to one colour and the size in check and a wire frame animal can be the perfect lodger for your garden this Christmas. Kids and adults will love this NOMA Wire Frame Running Deer.
Curtain Lights: the ultimate in glamour for your outdoor Christmas space.
Let it Snow: Snowing Icicle Lights will give your shed or porch a Seasonal Glow. NOMA’s Snowing Icicle Lights come complete with NOMA EasyTimer so you only have to set them once and they will come on every day.
Industrial Lights: Get the industrial look this Christmas with NOMA Garden Art’s The Bulb Solar light string. The stunning Edison-style bulbs are solar-powered, and look gorgeous wherever you hang them. And with NOMA’s SOLAR 365 technology you’ll get 6 hours of light each day guaranteed

Twinkle Twinkle Little Tree: Give your outdoor space some twinkling magic with a contemporary wire tree
Simple Snowflake: with no guarantee of snow this Christmas, make your own sparkle with a collection of 3 or 5 snowflakes hung together in a tree or against a wall.
Statement Stag: Get the ‘wow’ factor this Christmas with a NOMA Stags Head – perfect for adding a quirky touch to a porch, wall, or woodshed – you won’t want to take him down in January!

Traditional Christmas Styling Tips from Team NOMA.
Trends come and go, but a traditional look for your Christmas decorations will never go out of fashion. Add a few ‘wow’ touches and mix in some contemporary pieces too for a sophisticated traditional look that’s hard to beat.
To get the traditional look, green as a base is a must for your tree, foliage, and wreath – and then top off with reds and golds for a warm, nostalgic Christmas theme.
Add traditional-style metal lanterns for a warm Christmas glow – our NOMA lanterns come with battery-operated candles that look so good you’ll think they’re the real thing.
Satisfy your inner child with the ultimate traditional collectible Christmas ornament – we love the NOMA Musical Village with Rotating Train – set it up on a hallway table surrounded by greenery, twinkling lights and fake snow to create a magical scene.
Add fir garlands onto fireplaces, log baskets, and staircases and embellish to your heart’s content with pine cones, baubles and berries.
And finally, why not break with the norm a little… take those traditional Christmas touches and put a modern spin on them – we love this quirky test tube light garland – perfect to sit pride of place as a surprising twist in a traditional theme:
