tom raffield logbook

With our feet now firmly grounded in a refreshing new year, we can take the time to reflect on what has been as we gather excitement on what is to come. This past year, our homes have evolved into more than just a space in which we exist, but a sanctuary in which we thrive. It’s an honour to be able to continuously, and consciously, craft pieces that sit proudly in the backdrop of your treasured moments, and as we look ahead to exciting design adventures, we want to thank you for joining us on our journey.

Thank you for supporting us, every step of the way.

From the ground up, these beautiful designs add depth and functionality to any space.

When it comes to enhancing our homes, we encourage designs that not only captivate interiors, but also resonate with our commitment to sustainable design. We have a deep connection and appreciation for the timeless elegance of ash, oak, and walnut, and how they play a pivotal role in our journey to craft designs that stand the test of time, both in durability and aesthetics.

The beauty of Ash

Ash wood is one of the toughest hardwoods available, it’s shock absorbing and strong, whilst also being supple and versatile, which is why it is perfect for steam bending and can be found in a selection of our wooden lighting, homeware, and furniture collections. The appearance of ash wood differs from one tree to the next, with huge variation between the grain, colour, and tone of each piece of wood. This makes each design we create using this wood completely unique, celebrating its naturally distinctive beauty.

Everlasting Oak

Oak is renowned for its exceptional strength and durability, making it a popular choice for crafting lighting and furniture that can withstand the trials of time. This wood exudes a sense of reliability and sturdiness, which is why it can be found at the heart of some of our most iconic designs. The distinctive grain patterns of oak give our creations a unique character. Its warm hues radiate a comforting feeling, inviting a touch of nature into your living space.

Warming walnut

Walnut, with its deep, chocolatey tones and luxurious finish, is the embodiment of understated elegance. This wood exudes richness and sophistication, making it a natural choice for exquisite lighting designs. The versatility of walnut allows us to create pieces that are both contemporary and timeless.


Small Tables (4-6 people)

Opt for a pendant light with a diameter of 250-400mm. This size provides ample light coverage without dominating the intimate setting.

Medium Tables (6-8 people)

Choose a lighting design with a diameter of 400-700mm. This size strikes a harmonious balance, providing sufficient light for a larger group without feeling over-sized.

Large Tables (8+ people)

Consider a lighting centrepiece with a diameter of 700mm or more. This ensures that the light source adequately covers the expansive tabletop, creating a well lit environment for larger gatherings. Clustered lighting is also a great idea for illuminating large dining spaces.

Sculptural Lighting

Designer wooden pendant lights with artistic form create captivating patterns of light and shadow. Ideal if you use your dining space for intimate dinners and date nights as they cast a warm and gentle glow across your space.

Drum Lighting

For a more focused and task-oriented lighting solution, opt for wooden pendant lights with solid shades. Perfect for family game nights or impromptu home office spaces, they provide directed illumination.
