Design of the Day – Literally a tea light

After yesterdays mad rush to launch the NDA National Design Award competition, I thought I’d build up todays momentum a little more slowly.

After leisurely scouring the internet for design this morning, I came across this fantastic light on the Liberty website.

Inspired by 1930’s tableware, The Tea Range is a collection of quirky Art-deco tea-cup and teapot shaped lights, a perfect addition to any chic room design, kitchen or café!

Made from bone china and hung from a cotton braid cable, the lights take 4 to 12 weeks to arrive and cost £145, I’ve just placed my order!
