David Village Lighting’s collection of the month: Melting Pot by Axo Light

During the month, we have been adding lots of new and exciting products onto our website. And one collection we are particularly excited about is the Melting Pot collection from Axo Light. With an eye-catching, sophisticated pattern design (in both dark and light shades) on the exterior, and with gold and chrome interiors available, this elegant collection will add refined, tasteful effect to any contemporary space. And with a variety of sizes and styles to choose from, we are sure there will be something for everyone.

 So, here at David Village Lighting, we thought we would spotlight some of our favourite pieces for you. This is one not to miss!

This impressive floor lamp takes on different appearances when viewed from different angles due to its stylish decorative lampshade pattern.

Check out this stunning floor lamp, available in 2 sizes. This distinguished piece will be a welcome addition to any interior space, especially in living rooms and areas of required comfort. This piece will surely add an eye-catching effect to the room, while also complimenting existing interior design.

Oozing elegance and style, this highly unique canopy pendant piece incorporates a traditional conical design with a contemporary twist to create a glorious effect.

This gorgeous large melting pot canopy pendant is for those who want to make a lasting impression. Graceful in appearance and manner, this stunning piece is undoubtedly a show-stopper, updating a traditional conical shape by incorporating various patterns. The unique design and shape of the canopy light changes when you view it from different directions, making this retro, yet modern piece, ideal for illuminating tables and rooms with high ceiling due to its size.

Combining 4 different aesthetically pleasing lampshades to create an astounding illusion, the Melting pot XL pendant is truly inspirational piece of interior lighting.

Taking a modern twist on previous designs that have clustered together pendant lights, the Melting Pot XL pendant is a marvellous piece from Axo Light. 4 different design patterns have been merged to create a single piece, giving the viewer a different perspective of the light depending on where they are standing. Due to its length, this piece would make a fantastic addition to a long dining table or on top of a kitchen counter, yet would equally suit commercial settings, such as hotels and restaurants. Wherever it is placed, the light will surely be a hot talking point!

New from Innermost - Asteroid in Petrol finish

20 February 2015 Permalink

Innermost petrol asteroid pendant

To mark the 10th anniversary of the unique Asteroid range, Innermost have created a matching table lamp and pendant light in petrol finish. The petrol finish of the lamp gives an iridescent effect to the irregular faced glass, where no single side is equal to another. The asteroid was originally designed by Koray Ozgen ten years ago for its reveal at the 100% Design London exhibition, since then the geometric pendant and table light have been exceedingly popular in both commercial and residential locations.

The pendants work well singularly and as a cluster, the cluster creating an eye catching effect of each being a different size from the next, which is the result of its 24 sides being completely different dimensions. They are now available to order online.

New advancements in flos technology - there is now an app for the string lighting collection designed by Michael Anastassiades. This allows the light’s intensity to be operated via mobile phone as a tv remote control. The string range is already a very customisable fitting, it can be suspended upon ‘strings’ in whichever way works best within an environment and its inhabitants. This app has added to its user friendly customisation by allowing remote dimming control to any number of string lights, through this free app available on Apple and Android.

After selecting the model of string light present the app keeps track of those lights and become instantly versatile to the users needs. The new app also gives additional information about the lighting range, suggestions of ways in which to display a string light and guides on how to install the item effectively.

Diesel for Foscarini: The Gold Rock lamp

5 February 2015 Permalink

The Diesel for Foscarini lighting range, featuring the statement Gold Rock Lamp which is available as a Pendant and floor lamp.

The eye catching design is based upon volcanic rock, when it breaks and reveals a gem within. The outside is mysterious, severe and raw with its angular surface. The interior gleams in contrast like crystal, reflecting light rays to create a unique and surprising effect. The lamp is coated in metal and nylon, allowing the interior to glimmer, the Moulded ABS coating creates the almost rugged appearance outside.

The rock’s design is striking from all points of view, demanding attention, yet never dominating the space. Resulting in a design that works so well as part of a domestic or public environment. The pendant version of the Rock collection focuses light upon the space below, highlighting not overwhelming and creating a pleasant atmosphere. The floor lamp is very versatile; it can be comfortably used as a reading light when the head is adjusted as well as project light upward to illuminate an environment.

The gold Rock light assumes a different personality upon entering a range of interiors and depending upon its use, proving popular within a range of establishments.

New addition to the Aplomb range!

4 February 2015 Permalink

The ever increasing popularity of concrete lighting has seen Foscarini add to the range of Aplomb lamps. The suspension Aplomb has seen an incredible demand because of its iconic style.Now Foscarini has created a matching wall light which compliments the existing pendant very well, available in three colours: white, grey and brown. They are now also available in an LED light source.

The concrete shade moulds around the diffuser inside to create a single fitment, achieving a wider range of light being diffused upwards onto walls and ceiling above. This wide diffusion creates a soft and relaxing atmosphere as the indirect light illuminates the scene without dazzling those within the space. A smaller and more delicate light is also cast downwards creating a harmonious contrast between the two, having a sophisticated effect upon the room it is situated.
