All of the lights – our new lighting collection

It was about time we had a lightbulb moment. We know that anyone who’s passionate about their home understands the transformative ability of the right lighting. So after being inundated with requests to launch our own lighting range, we set out on a mission to track down the mood of the moment.

We knew pendant lighting was already a hit for interior aficionados far and wide. But what’s really got tongues wagging at the moment are jewel-like creations, crafted from glass.

Located in the heart of Marinha Grande, known to some as the ‘City of Crystal’ and Portugal’s largest hub for glass manufacturing, we were delighted to discover the craftsmen who would help us shape our long-awaited lighting collection. With over 20 years of experience, they certainly know a thing or two, and take pride in drawing on local traditional techniques that date back over two centuries.

Taking inspiration from everyday objects – from memorable childhood toys to simple street lamps – each pendant is carefully crafted using a meticulous four-hour process, from molding to finishing touches. “It’s the moment that I first get the idea for a design, that I love the most.” Says Jorge, the designer of the Swoon Editions range.

With over a decade of experience, it’s Jorge’s passion for his craft that underpins the quality of our new lighting range. A clever mixture of materials can be found throughout – the Treviso (£99) features solid pinewood against lush green glass – particularly captivating Swoon Editions buyer, Faye;

For me, the Treviso ticks all the right boxes; a hint of frill and frippery, combined with the clever use of smoky jewel tones brings the shape up to date and will transform an ordinary space into something quite special.”

With a unique ability to look as beautiful in broad daylight as when fitted with a statement bulb – pick from multiple colours in the range to lift a lifeless space in an instant.

Be the first to shop the range here.
