Did you know we just launched a new collection? Sure you’ve either met us at ICFF, heard about it on social media or one of our newsletters. Well, yes we launched our new ‘Stellar collection at ICFF a few weeks ago.
Anyone who has exhibited at a trade show knows how tiring and full on they can be. But it’s all a labour of love. We enjoy making connections with potential and existing clients. To top it all off, the feedback to the new designs was fantastic.
The Moody Monday stand
Amidst the great time we spent at our booth, we were sure not to miss out on all the contemporary design on offer in the Javits centre. A stroll round the hall packed with eager exhibitors, and we found some interesting products.
As far as product design goes, outside of our product lines, one of the areas that continues to fascinate us is lighting design. Grab a seat and enjoy the highlights from the Moody Monday perspective.

Design Influence of the week: The Raimond lamp
Many creative designers have a knack for exploring elements of their environments to motivate and inspire them in their creative journey. The brand we’re featuring today takes you right into nature with their exquisite lamp collection.
For their very first collection, Temple and Ivy were inspired by the flamboyance and beauty of birds they encountered on their African travels in Kenya and Zimbabwe. They are also captivated by the Georgian era which was heavily characterised by the use of feet in furniture design.

Shangra Lamp, Inspired by the flamingo with black & white silk shade
Using modern materials and traditional sculpture, these lamps are beautifully handcrafted in the UK and come in a variety of finishes ranging from copper, bronze to gold leaf. For lovers of texture, some are also adorned with feathers, beads and other interesting materials like this beautiful Multa lamp (pictured below).

Whether it’s a traditional or contemporary style room you’re decorating, these lamps are delightfully perfect for adding character and a unique sense of style. Certainly perfect for a Moody Monday interior!

Lighting can be more than an accent to a space, it can also be the main feature piece by allowing the light’s design and colour to really stand out from the rest of the space. Ceilings often provide an excellent platform to display unique lighting installations especially in commercial interiors as seen in these restaurants.
We also came across these examples where the lights match the colour palette of the space complementing the overall colour scheme beautifully.
One of the things that stand out about the next set of designs is the way they show off geometry. By being paired with rather neutral tones and muted hues, the eye is easily drawn to the intricate line patterns. It is practicality perfectly balanced with aesthetics.
Great lighting and bridges are usually a beauty to behold. Two great examples are The Solvesborg Bridge in Sweden and the High Trestle Trail Bridge. The Solvesborg Bridge which uses colour-changing luminaries was awarded one of the ten most interesting bridges in the world in 2013. The blue lights at the High Trestle trail bridge in Madrid are certainly mesmerising at night.
There certainly is no limit to using lighting to make a bold statement in design.
