Meet Sphery… My very own lighting range.
Last week, I was asked to join in a Q&A session for a Warrior Women Interiors event in Kin + Ilk. I was asked lots of great questions but the one I get asked pretty often is - what’s the one design style/trend that I can’t live with out? My answer, every time - WOOD.
Anyone who knows me, knows I have an obsession with wood. From the OSB in my shop, birch ply shelves + bed in my home to some of my all time favourite artists + designers - featuring you have guessed it wood… David Nash, Barbara Hepworth, Tom Raffied, Ercol, are just a few . I seem to live and breath wood. I love its natural tones, textures and patterns, and its never-ending ability to create beautiful, sculptural and functional pieces.
Maybe one of my biggest wooden love affairs started with my very own lighting range, Sphery. Sphery started its life back in 2006 as a sculptural piece. Each of its curved segments is made of sustainably sourced birch plywood. Using wood from a sustainable source was always super important to me. I always wanted Sphery to be a timeless piece with minimal impact on the environment it came from.
In 2009, I developed it into a statement light shade which is now available 3 different sizes. Sphery’s unique design provides functional light and casts amazing, moving shadows around the room.
If I’m asked to describe Sphery’s style, I’ll say a nod to Scandi and Mid-century styling. Thanks to its clean-cut lines, it works as a statement piece in many interior styles.
You can take a look at the full Sphery range online now. Each shade is made to order for you. If you have any questions about my lights or any products in the shop, I’m always happy to answer them. Thanks for reading!
