Our top 3 pieces from Tom Raffield’s collection


1 Butterfly Pendant by Tom Raffield

Inspired by the movement and beauty of a butterfly in full flight, the shape and form of this pendant light intercepts the light, making intricate shadows and producing a stunning lighting effect in any space.

Made by hand in Cornwall from sustainably sourced wood and finished with an eco-friendly, non-toxic varnish.


2 Log Loop by Tom Raffield

Made using local, sustainably sourced English oak, this Tom Raffield Log Loop wood basket is dynamic steam bent, hand crafted and finished like a fine piece of furniture. The simple organic form offers a practical place to carry and store logs.
The Tom Raffield Log Loop Wood Basket is finished with a blend of natural oils and wax to give a protective, hardwearing and beautiful finish. We love this. Love, love, love! It’s something worth holding on to for a lifetime and passing down through the generations. That’s how good it is!


3 Woven Drum Pendant Shade by Tom Raffield

The Tom Raffield Woven Light is a favourite of ours due in part to the nod to midcentury styling. Tom has experimented with the weave to create a wooden lighting design that celebrates the beauty of wood and the heritage of traditional craftsmanship.
Available in a range of beautiful woods, each one offering something different: ash, oak and walnut wood, allowing light to emanate through the grain, creating a warm lighting effect.
