The new range of Philips LED home lighting solutions will offer Australian home owners greater choice, and move home lighting from an afterthought to a core element of home design and décor. Philips’ LED lighting solutions provide a superior light quality that can transform spaces by incorporating lights that complement the atmosphere of the room, are long-lasting and sustainable.

Increasingly, home owners are applying light to create their personal style and a unique mood.  Now they can combine design with longer-lasting products, offering a rewarding long-term investment.


LEDs open up endless possibilities to transform and enhance spaces while using only one-fifth of the power of traditional incandescent bulbs. Grand Design Live is the perfect platform to show home owners that the design opportunities are limitless when using LED,” said Michael Downie, Philips Lighting General Manager ANZ.


Among the LED solutions available for purchase at Grand Designs Live and featured in the Philips House of the Future is the LivingColors LED lamp.  A sleek lamp with a colour-change control, this product offers 16 million different colour options to light a room and instantly change the ambience for any occasion.
