Welcome to Sparkle!

Sparkle Lighting is an independent British online boutique retailer offering a curated collection of pretty decorative lights to use in the home, garden or for a special event- helping you to create an inviting space.

We also offer seasonal lighting collections including autumn and Christmas lighting, but most of our lights are great for bringing a warm glow to any space all year.

Sparkle was started in 2019 by Thalia, who loves lighting and the difference it can make to a space.  Used in the right way, lighting can bring a warm and inviting atmosphere to a family home, a gorgeous wedding venue, or a special party, and transform the feel of a room or a garden area.

Thalia, owner and founder of Sparkle Lighting

Sparkle is a family business that started around the kitchen table in Buckinghamshire, hand picking beautiful lights to make a difference in our customers’ homes. The plan was to combine Thalia’s sales and marketing experience, and her love of lighting and interior home decor products, with her husband’s IT skills. The business has doubled each year since its launch and now has a warehouse and distribution center based in Brightlingsea in Essex. We have shipped over 12,000 lights and have over 500 reviews for our store and products.

A few years ago I renovated our family home and found it difficult to find affordable lights to create the warm atmosphere I wanted for my family, but also that I could be proud of when entertaining friends. 

I launched the website with more traditional lighting but what our customers really reacted to and started buying was the decorative lighting. So we followed our customers’ lead and focused on all-year pretty lights for the home. Soon after we launched a children’s range, a teenage collection and a garden lighting collection including pretty solar lights and high quality festoon lights from Scandinavia, and then a wedding and party lights collection.

Sparkle offers a hand-picked collection of pretty lights that will bring atmosphere wherever you need it in your home, garden or event, including lights for children’s and teenagers’ rooms, weddings, parties and of course we have a special Christmas lighting collection.  Fairy lights, wall hangings, table lamps (cordless and mains powered) work perfectly together to light up your space and create a complete look for a room, garden or party.

All of our products are sourced from within the EU and comply with the relevant EU standards. Our light bulbs and fairy lights use LEDs and give off a warm and cosy light: there are no blue lights in our range.

Over the last few years, Sparkle products have featured in The Sunday Times, The Independent, The Metro, Hello! Magazine and the majority of the homes & gardens magazines including House Beautiful, Ideal Home, Homes & Gardens, Real Homes, The English Home, Good Homes, Modern Gardens & Easy Gardens.

More recently Sparkle has been featured by the Thrive Programme on The Times Radio and in The Sunday Times. Thrive has supported and helped me to develop my digital skills to improve the performance of her website and business.

Sparkle has also been featured on a number of interior influencer pages like above in the home @number30eight.

I hope that I have inspired you to use pretty lights all year to create an inviting & warm space, where you can relax and enjoy time with the people you love. Please have a look around the store for inspiration and check out the Sparkle blog to get some ideas of how to use lights in different spaces.
