From stately homes to cosy cottages, NOMA leads the way with Christmas lighting

NOMA Christmas Lights and Trees mix cutting edge technology with beautiful design, for a Christmas to be proud of. So whether you’re decorating a flat in Dulwich, a Downton Abbey-style estate, or a semi-detached in Dunstable, they’ve got the perfect lights and trees for creating a magical Christmas.

Christmas 2016 Trends

Established in 1939, NOMA definitely knows Christmas! This year’s trends according to NOMA’s design team include:

LED lit wall art: this is a trend for Christmas Art on the walls. Frank Kaminski, marketing director for NOMA says: “This is really indicative of a bigger trend for seasonal decoration where people are refreshing and replacing things like artwork or cushions and throws in the living room as each season changes. So at Christmas time people are increasingly looking beyond the Christmas tree and table decorations as a way to bring Christmas into their home – so it becomes about the walls, soft furnishings, and sometimes even furniture”.

Collectible pieces that can be added to each year and passed down through the generations are also a growing trend. NOMA has been creating its Heritage range of wooden pre-lit buildings for more than 50 years, and rather than waning, their popularity is on the up. Kaminski continues: “There is a growing trend for items of beauty that have longevity, and when you add to that the nostalgia-factor at Christmas time, this is a trend that’s set to stay.”
Easy Treeasy

With NOMA’s 1, 2 Tree system, the days of tweaking and pulling branches into shape and then struggling with chains of lights are gone: simply take the tree out of the box, assemble the three parts, and plug the tree in and watch as all the branches fall into place automatically, with each branch lit with just the right number of lights.

Christmas Timings Sorted in 3 Seconds

With NOMA’s EasyTimer, setting Christmas lights to come on couldn’t be easier. Simply press the Easy Timer button for 3 seconds at the time you want the lights to turn on each day, and the set will automatically come on and then turn itself off 8 hours after.
