Alight Your Space With Art.Tom Raffield launches stunning new range of asymmetrical, sculptural lights made using their famous, ecological, steam bending technique. Available from 20th August 2021 and guaranteed to add the wow factor to any home!
Masters at crafting sustainable, artisan homeware, Tom Raffield have launched an extraordinary asymmetrical lighting collection from their workshop in Falmouth, Cornwall. The Verso Lighting Collection offers six brand new sculptural designs, showcasing the beauty found in nature’s unique, organic forms.
An ornate marriage of balance and light, the Verso Range is a wooden work of art that welcomes a fresh perspective. Forged from the Latin word to ‘spin’, the sculptural Verso Lighting Range calls back to nature and showcases the gravity defying, swooping motion of falling leaves in the wind.
Igniting creativity within interiors, the Verso Range looks different from every angle and exhibits its varying form to add playful personality to a wide range of spaces.
Each design is handcrafted with skill and attention to detail, down to the cleverly designed offset plate, to provide balance when suspended. The Verso Lighting Collection is available in Tom Raffield’s signature selection of sustainably sourced FSC wood.
“The Verso Lighting Range aims to celebrate how beautiful nature can be, something new and different to appreciate from every angle. However you gaze upon a Verso design, the soft curves feel familiar and comforting whilst representing the varying movements of leaves spiralling in a soft breeze”
- Tom Raffield, Founder.
The Verso Lighting Collection:
Looping to create eye-catching asymmetry, the Verso Pendant is cleverly crafted from one continuous length of sustainably sourced FSC timber that soars around the warm glow of an exposed bulb to cast a beautiful blend of light and shadow.
Verso Pendant Small
A striking small space alternative of the Verso Pendant. Perfect for creating a warm glow in specific areas within a space, or curate a personalised cluster, suiting hallways, dining spaces or kitchens alike.
Verso Pendant Large
Three lengths of sustainably sourced wood dance and layer to create a striking, larger lampshade. The Verso Pendant Large provides a show-stopping, sculptural centrepiece that will illuminate a wide range of interiors.
Verso Flush Ceiling Light
A welcome addition to the well-received Tom Raffield flush ceiling light collection. The Verso Flush Ceiling Light is crafted with smaller interiors in mind, providing the same sculptural beauty, without taking up too much space.
Verso Small Flush Ceiling Light

Verso Floor Light
Igniting creativity within your space, the Verso Range looks different from every angle and exhibits its varying form to add playful personality to a wide range of interiors.
