Lights, Camera…

Lighting is everything in a home. Not only is it visually a central feature and a really impactful way to make a statement - it can be a work of art. Check out this limited edition rainbow piece!

We were beside ourselves when super stylish lighting store, lumière, opened in Tunbridge Wells. This decorative lighting gallery showcases high-end designs from globally recognised designers and is your one-stop-shop for designing all your lighting needs.

Lighting is everything in a home. Not only is it visually a central feature and a really impactful way to make a statement, it totally sets the mood and ambience. Get it wrong at your peril, people.

Interior lovers out there will already know a stunning light feature can more often be a work of art in their home than something to read a book by. Case in point is this limited edition rainbow light (only a few sizes left and limited stock available) – be quick!

These unusual beauties began their journey in an artist’s workshop in Syria where each piece was made from a cluster of individually mouth-blown glass drops. Each light is unique because the combination of coloured drops the artist has woven together varies from piece to piece.

Melissa, owner and creator of lumière, has lived in Tunbridge Wells for over a decade. Having renovated a number of properties with her husband, Melissa discovered a gap in the market for high-end lighting in their local town and surrounding areas.

Melissa has always had a flair for interiors and a passion for lighting so she decided to create a decorative lighting consultancy hub, offering a bespoke service which caters for the lighting needs of both retail and trade customers. Pop on in and prepare to be dazzled.

WHAT MELISSA SAYS ABOUT THE LIGHTS

‘A couple of years ago, I spotted one of these while browsing stalls at a winter market. It was a bit of a one-off, I fell head over heels and snapped it up straight away for my own home. I have been looking for the manufacturer ever since.   
   
Earlier this year, I found a little company that imports them from one of the last active Syrian glass blowing manufactures based in Damascus. This Syrian artist’s creations were very highly sought after until the war destroyed his factory. Thankfully he managed to relocate and start working again despite the political situation in Damascus.   
   
This light always makes me smile. During lockdown I decided to name these “L’arc-en-ciel” (rainbow in French). I hope that these mouth blown glass droplets of magic will inject much happiness and light into each buyer’s life.    
   
I hope it will remind us to hug, love and cherish the people we love and be grateful for all that we have.
