You might wonder how we named the lights in our collection (we’re also fully aware that you might have other issues on your mind, but if you’re at all interested, read on). We initially named the collection after British forests – Savernake, Sherwood, Ashdown etc – but had an uneasy feeling they were too obvious and pedestrian for our delicately veneered gems. So, we took inspiration from literary characters set in forests. You might already have seen or read about Max (from Where the Wild Things Are), will probably recognise Robin, Marian and Little John, and Hansel and Gretel are obviously old friends – slightly more obscure might be Little Hintock and The Winterborne, inspired by Thomas Hardy’s arguably best ever book ‘The Woodlanders’. If you have ideas for the next addition to our family, let us know!
IN THE BEGINNING WAS OUR NEVER-DIMINISHING JOY OF WORKING WITH WOOD,
WHICH WE CRAFTED INTO UNIQUE DESIGNS WITH GORGEOUS METALS
AND WITH THE FLICK OF A SWITCH DECLARED ‘LET THERE BE SYLVIE’
