Product bio

Designed by Jean Prouvé in1950

"Designed as a pivoting wall lamp for the 'Maison Tropique', Potence is regarded as
 one of Jean Prouvé's masterpieces. The fascination of this luminaire, which is over
 two metres long and dimmable, stems from the spareness of its materials and forms"

A true masterpiece in my eyes.

Available to order from the shop

These are so popular in the store and I'm not surprised; I have them and I absolutely love
cooking with them, they are so tactile and beautiful - and also brilliantly practical.

We will be there in one month and I can't wait.

There will be lots of relaxing, reading, bar-b-q-ing in the summer house

....surrounded by nature.  *sigh* it's been far too long (8 months) - I need a fix.

"Hygge" candles from Skandinavisk

A beautiful new brand founded by "2 English chaps, Shaun and Gerry, who 
fell in love with 2 blonde Scandinavian girls over a decade ago".

They say....
"Everyone carries some familiar stereotypes of Scandinavia and its people
 – the beautiful blonde inhabitants, the wide open landscapes, the long
 dark winters, the bicycles, the fairytale capitals.

The Scandinavian countries are consistently ranked as having the happiest
 peoples, with the best quality of life, the most liveable cities, some of
 the highest education standards, the hippest design, the most bikes and boats 
per capita etc etc. The list is endless.

But what is it that makes them so happy and successful?

We think it is in their ability to create intimacy, fellowship and conviviality
 around everyday moments. The kind of everyday moment borne from the
 region's exposure to extended cold and darkness and the need for people
 to come together, over centuries, around a source of heat and light.

Its their ability to turn this rather functional need into an almost spiritual
 experience that sets Scandinavia apart - the magic of turning any situation
 into a moment of cosiness, especially those shared with friends and family 
around the illuminating glow of a flickering candle flame.

Each nation has their own name to describe it and all will proudly tell you
 there is no direct international translation. 'Hygge' is Danish DNA, the Swedes
 like to 'mys', the Norwegians 'kose' while the Finns - ever different - find
 their own warmth in 'lӓmpöӓ'. But each word reflects the same cosy, 
snuggly Scandinavian feeling".
