A dramatic chandelier, two new rugs and atmospheric paint. These are the product launches that caught my eye this week.
Bespoke lighting brand Cameron Design House will launch the Torsa chandelier at the Lighting By Design event at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour later this month.
Inspired by the natural world, this sculptural light displays the brand’s signature contemporary aesthetic.
Inspired by the striking reflections of Lake Torsa in Finland, the design features brass discs with mirrored glass façades, which transform into glowing eclipses of light when illuminated. Individually suspended at opposing angles to highlight the chandelier’s unique surfaces, each disc encapsulates the beauty and movement of nature.
Postcard from Barra is an atmospheric new paint collection from Francesca’s Paints.
Inspired by the beautiful untamed landscape of the Outer Hebridean island of Barra the collection features five coordinated colours each drawing on elements of the natural world from white sandy beaches to rocky hills.
Each colour within the collection is made with the same number of pigments, giving them a ‘tonal perfection’ that enables them to be combined in a scheme or used on their own.
Founded in 1996 by colourist Francesca Wezel, Francesca’s Paints offers a bespoke
paint mixing service. Many of the paints are entirely plastic free, breathable and free from solvents.
Based in London, homeware and clothing brand Allwina promotes South America textile crafts.
Allwina’s signature rugs are made with wool from the same region in which they are hand woven so that local family businesses are supported.
The company’s collection of hand loomed rugs are from northern Argentina and there is also a curated collection of art-like pieces from both Argentina and Uruguay.
Closer to home, rug designer Jennifer Manners has collaborated with interior designer Henry Prideaux to create a hand knotted rug with a three dimensional element.
The new rug, which is manufactured from Jennifer’s /re/PURPOSE PERFORMANCE fibre which is made from recycled water bottles, is called Rondel. The design features a series of raised roundels, all finished by hand, and showcases the surprising softness of this innovative fibre.
Rondel can be custom made in different colours and shapes.
