Drums a go-go, we are Mad about wood and Nature

We are just mad about our new collection, and think you will be too.

Accent and Sommerlight have collaborated on a line of lamps we call Nature. The collection comprises lamp bases (table and floor), wall sconces, and hanging lamps – all with wood – and Claire de Lune ® Barrels, in the original size, and the new size – mini Barrel.

The collection was inspired by waste bits of raw natural wood I found in a wood workshop, and wooden parts that Sommerlight has carried for over 50 years – true retro/vintage!

New, modern textile cords have been added for that touch of luxury and color.  The lampshades come in 13 different motifs.  The lampshades are supplied flat pack. We like that.  The wooden parts featured are in various finishes.

After working on this collection of wood lamps for the last 3 months, it hit me!     Madmen!!!
Can’t you just see Don Draper under one of these lamps?

And yes, many of the first batch of our new collections are from Don Draper’s time! So you better get yours now, if you want the original stuff.
Simple and beautiful, these lampshades are easy to assemble, and fit beautifully with the lamp bases designed for Sommerlight. The motifs are graphic, modern and at the same time classic and timeless.

The  Barrels can be used as a pendel shade, or on a standing base – (floor or table). The designs allows for both possibilities, as does placement of the diffuser.

(Barrels shown above:   Doctor Bird,  Tunis, Fern)

Fun, functional and funky – FUNKTIONAL!!!! Fabulous! Light with attitude!

Available now directly from Accent.

Madly signing off,  Claire

Drum roll please, presenting drum shades – Claire de Lune Barrels

These 13 different drum shades are not only versatile.  I designed them so they could be used as pendant shades, but also for putting on lamp bases (table and floor flamp bases).

The light diffuser which is optional can be assembled either on top or bottom.

I think they are great for changing the mood and flavor of a room, and certainly modern. And make a change without going broke.  These are very reasonably priced.

(lamp bases not included)

Two of the lamps have designs from my many travels – Venice and Tunis.  Others have origins in Jamaican fauna and flora.  And others compliment my Claire de Lune Chandelier.

Here’s a picture from my bedroom …….

I got that lovely “tree stump” light three years ago, and I just love it, and love it with my “Bramble” barrel shade.

So there it is folks, get yours now.

Love red …

Red is for Christmas, red is for Valentine’s day, red is for passion, and just because……..

Claire de Lune ® Chandelier – red. My Claire de Lune Chandelier was originally done in red for ICFF in New York, as a tribute to the BIG APPLE. It was done in the larger size and quite spectacular it was!

Photos by David Rivett               This was it against my CDL wallpaper.

So I have done the red Chandelier  in a size that doesn’t require a smaller mansion to hang it in.

Doing a red theme here in our living room.

My design and production methods reflect a deep, long-time, personal commitment to the environment and the reduction of waste material. All left-over pieces of material from the production of lamps and mirrors are re-used for my jewellery line – CLAIRELY upcycled jewellery . The Claire de Lune Chandeliers are flat-pack to minimize carbon footprint, and eco-friendly packing materials are used where possible.
