Over at the Details exhibition at the Order of St John was a lovely collection of favourites and new rubbing shoulders and a pavilion outside (more later).   We were treated to a full new set of products first seen at Milan from our lighting friends at OCHRE.

This gorgeous single light called Celestial Pebble looks like the tip of the glass holds the the light source, but it’s a clever trick of the glass. Stunning.

A new find for us was Marion Labbez. She is reinvigorating the art of verre églomisé  (guilded and decorated glass)  art by injecting her contemporary hand-drawn artistic twist to the delicate mirror designs.
