Smith Brass Light

From the latest Minerals and Metallics range from Lightly, we introduce our Smith Light.

Conical in shape the lights are developed with the essential elements from our earth in mind. Whilst organic tones of leather and wood are utilized in the living range, the lighting and tableware collections explore the use of copper brass and stone.

Davies collaborated with small independent makers for the brass light paying homage to craft persons still making in the industry.

Mason Marble Light

In addition to the Smith Brass Light, Lightly brings you their first Marble light, Mason.

Simple ideas, minimal shapes and often a limited palette of materials resonate with Davies in recent collections — as once done by the austerity movement postwar. Designer Cindy-Lee Davies has collaborated with local duo Marble Basics for the stunning shade.

‘Memphis in the Air’

This month we are releasing two new designs of our collectable mugs entitled ‘Clouds and Confetti‘- with a subtle whisper of ‘Memphis in the Air’.

You may recall ‘For Good Measure’ mugs launched in 2011 as an exploration of black white line and measurements by husband and wife duo, Cindy-Lee Davies and Paul Williamson for Lightly. The same line thickness is used on all 9 mugs so collectors can enjoy a timeless edition of fine bone china.

Now online, limited edition 200 of each.

Assemblages

Assemblages is the latest design collection designed by Cindy-Lee Davies of Lightly, an elegant range of leather props, designed with the end user in mind.

Davies’ work is known for its nostalgic references and homage to traditional crafts, and Assemblages is no different – it is inspired by her grandfather who was in the Australian Light Horse Regiment, which served the country on horseback. The range harks back to Australia in the early 1900s and the utilitarian resourcefulness found in the lifestyle. It draws on the saddlery aesthetic: the artisan skill, the mix of leather girths and copper belt buckles, and the unmistakable smell of raw leather.

Assemblages has been through a lengthy development process, starting out as a series of strap-based furniture made from recycled car seatbelts, designed when Davies graduated in 2000. The designs have developed over the years, and have finally evolved into a beautiful leather range for interiors. 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 three-dimensional pieces of furniture for the home.
