LE JARDIN – NEW HANGING ASSEMBLAGES

The new collection is a sensory study of colour and form, with a palette that references Le Jardin secrets of Marrakesh; an oasis of peace and quiet within high walls, where plants and trees from five continents grow together as an earthly reflection of paradise. These tranquil secret gardens and riads gave the collection a palette described by Davies as “an intrepid journey of colour that indulges fanciful musings of warmth and desire.”

With a life-giving water feature at each gardens’ centre, these oases brought Lightly’s ongoing focus on wellbeing to the collection.

Bring depth and adventure to your indoor or outdoor plant styling this spring with Lightly’s ever-expanding range of vessels and planters.

The brand’s well-loved planters and vessels have been reinvigorated in the bold and intrepid colour palette of the latest collection, Le Jardin, while brand new pieces like hanging planters  have been added to the range.

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.

The Side table Belt is Part of Lightly’s Assemblages collection which draws on the saddlery aesthetic: the artisan skill, the mix of leather girths and belt buckles.

The belts are sold individually in natural with brass or black with nickel finishes and ideal for creating an innovative side table. Belt length is  225 x 6cm width.

Please note the belt is not sold with side table cubes; these can be custom made for $380 each – please contact Lightly for orders.

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.
