If you are looking to add some Chinese Inspired Lighting and Home Decor in time to celebrate the Chinese New Year, Cotterell & Co have some bespoke hand made products that will add those warm inviting touches to your home just in time.
One of their Interior Designers picked out a collection of products featuring Rustic Oranges, Reds, Florals and much more. The meaning on ‘Feng Shui’ actually comes from ancient Chinese beliefs, that the way your home or house is built or the way that you arrange objects affects your success, health and happiness. This term was the inspiration for the small collection.
Here we have added a Giraffe Lamp with an Orange Shade. This was inspired from history going as far back as 1414. A Giraffe – a unknown creature at the time in china- was presented to an Emperor who immediately associated it with the qilin, an auspicious mythical creature. Next, they have Moooi Menagerie of Extinct Animals Bespoke Shade. The print celebrates extinct animals. The creatures are nestled amongst the outsize foliage picked out in stunningly vibrant colours. The inspiration for the next lamp was the Traditional Asian Rice Hat. The bespoke tapered shade is shaped in a similar way.
