NOVE Lighting, has added to its evolving Cork Collection with the launch of a brand new range of unique table lights
Harmoniously fusing modern silhouettes with the patina of natural cork, NOVE’s four new statement table lights include a choice of two striking styles, both available in either marbled or blackened cork finishes.
After discovering a local, family-run cork factory while working as a photographic stylist in Portugal, NOVE founder Kirsty Saxon knew immediately that she wanted to use this beautiful, natural material to create something truly unique and completely sustainable. Working closely alongside the Portuguese family, who has been running their successful cork business for nearly 50 years, Kirsty finally realised her dream and NOVE Lighting was born.
The cork is carefully and sustainably hand-harvested from the self-regenerating Cork Oak tree and skillfully worked by hand to create uniquely grained cork lights. NOVE’s range of table lights continues to celebrate the sheer beauty of this amazing natural material, while adding an extra element of clean, contemporary design.
Kirsty says: “Each of our new table lights is thoughtfully crafted from a single block of either marbled or blackened cork, which involves a skilled, labour-intensive process of precision and craftsmanship which remains at the heart of every piece we make. Our contemporary designs are further enhanced by the customisation of contrasting solid brass with chamfered edge detailing, bringing a cool, soft glow to our lamps. “The new table lights collection features two unique designs; The Table Light and The Stacked Light. The Table Light features a sleek, simple column of beautiful marbled or blackened cork and is finished with an elegant chamfered, weighted solid brass base.
“The Stacked Light features a wider cork base which has been hand-cut to precision to create striking, crisp, clean channels for a unique stacked effect. Again available in both marbled and blackened finishes, the Stacked Light also features a subtle chamfered brass element around the flex aperture for an extra luxury aesthetic.
“Both of our new table light designs are inclusive of three meters of luxe woven cable in a choice of three earthy colours; old gold, khaki and black, and all come fitted with an elegant in-line switch. We recommend fitting our table lights with a large globe light bulb or a beautiful, hand-sandblasted opaque Tala bulb, which both work perfectly to create a balanced, stylish aesthetic and a warm, sophisticated glow; ideal for placing on bedside or end tables in any home. Both of our table light designs also look stunning alongside our wider range of cork wall lights, pendant lights and ceiling roses, which can be mixed and matched to create a truly coordinated aesthetic.”
