For us, sustainability is simple: we make pieces to last for 100 years. That in itself means it is better for the environment; but it also means using the very best materials and caring about how we make and what we make it from.

Beauty & function

The Leading Light was one of our first product launches and it continues to be popular. The table and light combination make it a flexible choice especially for smaller spaces. Originally launched with a pleated shade, we now offer a plain version in a choice of black or ivory. We also offer the shades in bespoke fabrics to suit your scheme.
