49 uses for pull cord lighting in the garden and home

Lighting has both decorative and practical uses in the garden and home, whether it’s jazzing up  a summer garden party or navigating a dark loft space. It can look great by day or by night!

These new contemporary pull cord light bulbs turn on easily by gently pulling the bulb downwards. There’s also a nifty remote control for turning the lights on and off from afar, for example if you want to illuminate the garden without stepping outside. Bulbs stay cool and there’s no risk of burning.. No more fumbling in the dark for a light switch, hey!

These lights come in a set of 3 and you can choose from solid gold, silver, rose gold or bronze colour. They are weatherproof, shatterproof and water resistant, so suitable for indoor and outdoor use, and they are on special offer on QVC UK all day on 11th June 2018….! Tune in from midnight.
