The decorative lighting brand, Vaughan, is displaying the spring/summer 2023 collection in its London showroom inside Design Centre Chelsea Harbour. Here’s our editor’s pick…
Combining a wealth of colour, texture and original design, the spring/summer 2023 collection from Vaughan welcomes both new designs, additional finishes and the much-anticipated return of a Kilim Rug collection.
Each new piece is made using the finest materials and calling on the highest level of craftsmanship across the globe. An assortment of table lamps, wall lights and ceiling lights, the collection refers to classic English design, yet is coupled with Vaughan’s signature pared-back aesthetic.
New table lamps
Adding to the Vaughan table lamp collection, the new Monxton table lamp launches a new shape and a new glaze finish. Slip cast earthenware ceramic and finished in a smooth, brown opaque porphyry style glaze with bronze fittings, the Monxton was inspired by a mid-20th century ceramic vase.
The Shoreham Table, popular in its existing high gloss red glaze finish and mid century style, launches this spring in a new finish. As with the Monxton table lamp, the new Shoreham table lamp is slip cast in earthenware ceramic with an opaque porphyry style glaze.
The ever-popular Avebury gourd table lamp, which is fabricated in ceramic earthenware with brass fittings, is now available in an additional colourway, in a crackled white glaze.
Vaughan expands its outdoor lighting collection with the new Twyford Lantern. Based on a 19th century antique, the lantern features intricate pierced metalwork detail. It is small in scale, with a height of just under 46cm. Although designed as an outside lantern and IP44 rated, it would work equally well in an interior setting. The lantern is manufactured from silver soldered brass sheeting, which is painted an ivory white colour. The piece has a three-way fitting and takes G9 bulbs, which are covered in frosted glass candle covers and candle tubes. It is supplied with chain and can also be installed with a fixed rod which needs to be ordered and fitted separately by the client.
Launching in a new Verdigris finish are the Axford and Hawley lanterns, which were first introduced in September 2022 with a copper bronze finish. The additional Verdigris finish is a copper oxide finish that is then sealed with a clear matt lacquer.
Wall lights continue to be integral to Vaughan collections and the 1940s inspired Marlow Wall Lights are now designed in brass and nickel finishes adding further glamour to the original design. The scale of the backplate is complemented by the design details and result in a strong and modern wall light. The Marlow wall lights are fabricated from solid cast brass with an antiqued brass or nickel finish. All wall lights are shown with five-inch lily linen drum lampshades.
Adding to Vaughan’s existing collection of Coldsteam picture lights, the design team have designed a version with a backplate that houses the driver for the LED module to ensure simplified installation process and an integrated LED cover to ensure even light. The backplate is solid cast brass and tube and hood are fabricated brass.
Exton mirror is now available in a bronze finish. Currently available in brass, the new bronze finish is fabricated from brass with brass wire detailing around the mirror edge that is then finished in bronze. Inspired by 1940’s design, it is a large scale statement piece measuring nearly 123cm in height and 90cm wide.Kilim
