'Angle' table lamps and 'Triangle' pendant lamps by NZ-based Workroom Design

I am LOVING LOVING LOVING these new lights by NZ-based design team Workroom Design.   HOW great are they!?  In actual fact the 'Angle' table lamp has been around for a while, but the lovely 'Lean' floor lamp and 'Triangle' pendant lamp are brand new - launched just last month!  I heart them massively.  So rare to see new freestanding lamps designed and manufactured locally!  With their quirky scandi aesthetic and *Wallpaper magazine-esque styling, it's only a matter of time before these sweet designs hit the bigtime.

Workroom Design was established in 2008 by father and daughter design team Douglas and Rebecca Snelling.   They also run a fabulous little retail store in Auckland called Douglas & Bec (I have covered once before), which stocks their own designs and other like-minded finds - including, I notice, pieces by  South Australian design darlings Daniel : Emma!

Most excitingly, Douglas & Bec have just launched a fantastic online store - so those of us across the ocean can get in on the action!

All the beautiful lamps pictured here are handcrafted in NZ using American Ash timber, spun aluminium shades in a range of colours, and beautiful woven fabric flex cords.  Need.  Want.  Now.
