Plasma Balls have been an exciting novelty decor piece over the decades so we're here to answer your most commonly asked questions regarding the electrifying item. 



The glass orb/ball is filled with low pressure gasses such as argon, the plasma orb in the center of the globe then provides voltage throughout the orb reacting with the gasses which creates the lighting effect we all know and love!  



Plasma balls are incredibly safe so long as it is operated responsibly and safely. As with all objects that handle an electric current, there are some things to avoid during the plasma ball's operation.

  • Do not touch the plasma ball with wet hands. This may result in a small shock.
  • Do not maintain contact with the glass of the plasma ball for extended periods of time due to rapid heat buildup.
  • Do not touch the plasma ball with a conductive materials such as metal. It is quite common for people wearing rings to accidentally touch the orb before removing them resulting in a small shock. 
  • As the electric current within the plasma ball produces a small amount of electric interference, it's important to avoid close contact for anyone who has a pacemaker.



Like most things, the wear of the plasma ball depends on the frequency and duration it is operated for. The plasma node which provides a high voltage can also wear out with extended use resulting in a less bright "lightning" effect however this is not the norm.

The difference between Hamptons and French Provincial

The difference between Hamptons and French Provincial

The two are often confused due to their shared decor attributes.

Flicking through our range of Hampton style lights it become apparent to me that we had started to incorporate a large number of decorative over adorned fixtures more suited to a French provincial style. Researching this further I have found it was quite a common dilemma of many decorators when attempting to set a strong theme throughout their spaces. To help you understand the difference I discuss the styles and their aesthetics below.

Hamptons Style

Most will describe the Hamptons Style as a timeless contemporary theme, filled with glass and chrome, white on white in an almost costal atmosphere. Its main focus is on comfort through soft furnishings and relaxed additions such as a stack of books here and there.

French Provincial

French provincial is appropriately inspired by the French country side, and helps define another popular style known as shabby sheik. It is often made up of Antiques focusing on ornate craftsmanship, painted timber and neutral fabrics such as linen.  French provincial unlike Hamptons does not focus on light furnishing and it’s more structured in its decorative additions.
