Take a look at some of our favourite pictures to start off the new year and get your creative hearts beating:

Illuminate Curiosity

There are so many options, but lighting is a selective and tedious decision. Choose designs that will illuminate curiosity.

Here you will find, a little sneak peak of our showroom pieces.

This season, we chose pieces with high concept designs that leverage timeless, modern silhouettes and borrow slightly industrial inspirations. Made with antique iron, aged mirror and faceted glass, each design offers a range of beautiful finishes from hand-applied mercury to gold leaf.
