Product of the Week – Glass Pendants from Curiousa & Curiousa
This week we are spoiling you with a whole collection of Glass Pendants from Curiousa & Curiousa. With endless ideas of colours, shapes and arrangements you’re going to be designing your room around these lights!
The Glass Pendants are available in 4 sizes, 5 shapes and 21 different colours. Each individual light is hand blown and includes fabric twisted flex and metal fittings. The variety of this collection means that everyone will have their personal favourite…or two! Each shade is traditionally free-blown without moulds, allowing virtually any shape, size and colour to be achieved. Curiousa shows how to mix and match different styles, we think that they’re perfect for not only a home but also a bar, restaurant or hotel.
Meet Esther Patterson, the founder of Curiousa & Curiousa designs hand-blown, bespoke glass and bone china lighting.
Based in Derbyshire in the Midlands Esther is a proud British Designer using only UK based craftspeople and suppliers, she continues to work locally with carpenters, fabricators, photographers and glass blowers – all highly skilled crafts people.
Just 5 years ago Esther launched her range in Design Week at Tent London gaining the prestigious ‘Elle Decoration Approval’ award. With lights now retailing through Liberty’s London, designs used in Harvey Nicols Fifth Floor Cafe, pendants hanging in Jamie Oliver Restaurants, gaining a nomination for the British Design Awards for 2012 and 2013, then this year winning The Dulux Colour Award, Esther continues to go from strength to strength, developing new ranges and bespoke solutions for interior designers, architectural practices and private individuals.
What’s next for Curiousa & Curiousa?
Esther says, “The whole team are all so excited to be a part of the celebrations for Maison & Objet Paris’ 20th anniversary. Not only is this our first time exhibiting at Maison, but 2015 marks Curiousa’s 5th anniversary within the industry, so we just knew it would be the perfect exhibition to launch the year.”
