TEMPLE & IVY
Exquisite lamps & lighting - Inspired by nature, hand made in England
Designers Nicky Boulton and Susan Neville are redefining exquisite lamps and lighting, with their unique manufacturing business.
Temple & Ivy’s design inspiration was born of childhood summers in Zimbabwe and a recent Kenyan safari. Distinct and exclusive, these individually handcrafted lamps are a creative way to animate spaces and inject personality into interior schemes.
Sculpted and forged in Somerset using traditional cold cast bronze resin and carbon fibre they are a beautiful example of design innovation: blending classic and contemporary influences. The shades represent the birds that have been selected for the range and beautifully hand made, including: Avocets, Flamingos, African Jacana, African Rail, Purple Gallinule. Some of the shades are exquisitely feathered, others feature beautiful Maasai beads and can be custom made to suit a client’s colour scheme.
The unique range is cast in bronze and carbon fibre to give the legs great strength, adopting a specialist technique for layering each of the finishes chosen. A further layer of bronze is added for a bronze finish, or a layer of copper for copper verdigris or metal alloy to give a pewter finish.
All products are handmade in England. Our lighting complies with the safety requirements for UK and Europe.
