The famous Palm Springs planter is now available in MINI for flower arranging, the perfect detail to discover in your home or event design. Its playful simplicity reflects the practicality of mid-century makers, and the architectural details and natural beauty in Palm Springs, California.

Palm Springs is perfect for everything from large statement plants to the smallest greenery.

Second Nature and it’s colour palette are a personal reflection on the interplay between consistency and change. We’ve gathered colours from afar, bringing them home to find a place beside those that represent what’s familiar and practised – and the places of personal growth in between the two.

Earthy and soft ochre, nutmeg and sand originate from the Atlas Mountains and provide a distant and subtle backdrop to Second Nature, giving teal and forest green pride of place. Inspired by travel all over the world, these muted but powerful colours have grounded Lightly collections over the years.

Always designed to endure and grow with the spaces we call home, Second Nature is a natural extension to the playful yet graceful, distinct yet timeless designs Lightly has become known for.

The latest collection from Lightly, Second Nature, featuring brand new and classic planters in simple, brave and balanced shapes, is now online and in-store just in time for spring.

TONE – First released in 2018, Tone’s curious shape highlights the deeply personal colour palettes of Lightly collections, each one informed by personal experiences of growth, travels and relationships.
Now in Teal, Nutmeg and Dusty Rose

GOBLET – Available in large and small, the goblet series was first released in 2018. The vessels’ use of symmetry and form marked Lightly’s return home to ponder ritual, ceremony and practice after years of adventurous inspirations from around the globe.

Nowhere is the brand’s subtle and playful use of pure shapes and colour more impactful than in these versatile vessels. An original and unique Lightly design, the planters reflect the parallels between the functional mid-century modern forms of Palm Springs, California and the brand’s view of timeless design and practical beauty.

Available in three sizes, the Palm Springs planter is one of the foundational pieces for Lightly’s expanding the range of botanical wares available online and in-store. The large planter is the perfect home for your statement plants. Small and medium suit various uses both indoors and out.

First released in 2016, Palm Springs easily steps in stride with the rest of Second Nature with a harmony of simple forms and the perfect balance between classic and modern.

“Fourteen years into her Lightly adventure, a lot of things have changed for director and designer Cindy-Lee Davies. And a lot of things haven’t.
Celebrating the lifelong give-and-take between consistency and change, the brand’s latest collection Second Nature embraces the comfort and sensibility in practice and habit.

The collection’s 30+ new items, including trays, planters, goblets and brand new objects like the ‘Essence’ incense holder are united by a unique blend of classic and modern through elementary forms and Lightly’s distinct mid-century practicality.

Enduring design, functionality and a sense of resourcefulness have always been a part of Davies’ design approach. Woven seamlessly together with clever use of colour and form, Second Nature creates its own design etiquette grounded in classic design.”


We are super excited to announce our N W A Y bed is shortlisted in the Collaboration category for the Design Files Awards.

The project objective was to design a new bed that accommodated a growing family. A very personal project, the bed had to provide a sense of inclusion, be Australian made and a focus on a practical yet tactile modern design, with reference to traditional craftsmanship at the core.

An ode to Danish design classics and the beauty of hand-made craftsmanship, the bed is both refined and raw, combining solid Victorian Ash frame with dowel wrapping as a bedhead, maximising comfort and enveloping you with a warm embrace.

The bed frame is manufactured locally in Melbourne and crafted by hand; using timber sourced from sustainably managed forests.

The designer-maker, Softer Studio, a highly-skilled cabinetry designer who shares our values of considered living, innovation and timeless design, brings the design to life.

Available through Lightly in your choice of solid Victorian ash or beech timber. The bed is elegantly finished with a natural oil and wax combination to ensure your new bed stays protected all life long.

NWAY is made to order in king or queen sizing, please contact for more information or to place an order.


Our new Ambit Mini Pendant by Muuto has arrived! Designed by TAF Studio, Stockholm-based design and architecture practice, founded by Gabriella Gustafson and Mattias Ståhlbom, their work seeks to breathe new life into domestic products through refined design.

“Our aim is to make ordinary life less ordinary through subtle but effective changes in how products and architecture appear and function. A recurrent departure point in our projects is that everyday objects, by their obvious commonness, can be made uncommon.”

Embodying the values of Scandinavian design, the Ambit Pendant Lamp is as timeless as it is contemporary. Made of hand-spun aluminium that has been hand-painted, the Ambit Pendant Lamp has a white interior to heighten contrasts of its outside shade and enhance the light omitted in any room of a home, office or commercial space.

The Assemblages Book Belt in Natural Leather

This week, we have chosen to reflect on the utilitarian spirit of our signature Lightly pieces, and the journey inspiring designer and director, Cindy-Lee Davies to create them.

Many of the products have nostalgic reference of bygone eras, for example, Lightly’s Assemblages collection, designed in 2013, harks back to Australia in the early 1900s and the “utilitarian resourcefulness”, found in the lifestyle. This is a core value to Davies in the design process.

The collection draws on the saddlery aesthetic: the artisan skill, the mix of leather girths and belt buckles and was created in homage of spending weekends at the stables with her grandfather.

The Assemblages Leather Shelves in White

The three styles within the Assemblages are interactive pieces that allow the user to author their own lifestyle, combining various found objects and collections to function as “assemblages” or props for the home.

Her designs reflect the necessary practicality of mid-century Australian makers and remain grounded in functionality. They highlight the beauty in simple utilitarianism and are a personal expression from the heart.
