I have a confession to make, and I can’t quite believe that I’m writing this but…. I’ve never been a big fan of house plants. Okay, before you throw your hands up in horror, I’m blaming my childhood for this (of course). Growing up, our home was filled with plants. We had macrame hanging baskets with plants. Spider plants everywhere. And mother-in-law’s tongues looking spiky and defiant alongside the fireplace. I grew up surrounded by plants, and rather than making me appreciate and enjoy all this natural greenery, as soon as I had my own place I made sure that it was a plant-free zone. Too busy, too leafy, too spiky, too green. There was no space in my home for plants.
I’ve long been an admirer of Tom Raffield’s lighting designs – indeed, I have my eye on the curvaceous and fluid Skipper pendant for the new yoga space – so I was interested to see the design studio launching a new product collection called The Green Range. This collection again showcases the brand’s signature curves and traditional steam bending craftsmanship but with a new addition: ceramics.
