NEW Nautic Lighting by Tekna

When I was in Belgium this April I had the pleasure of meeting with Erik Huysmans (pictured), Director and Designer for Tekna / Nautic Lighting.

Nautic presents a collection of authentic light fittings, made out of pure materials such as bronze, copper, cast iron and brass. They are inspired by the ancient forms of old trains and ships from a bygone age and yet at the same time are modified for contemporary aesthetics and use, employing genuine European craftsmanship.

Nautic's main objective is to be there without wanting to be seen, not to be pushy, but honest, not striking, but stylish. In short, as pure as the poetic sense of light.

We are proud to announce that Cotton Love has the Sydney exclusive for this amazing lighting range and our first shipment is in-store now.

When in Belgium...

When I was in Belgium (April 2011) I was lucky enough to stay at this beautiful country hotel called Auberge du PĂȘcheur, St-Martens-Latem. Set on the river, in the Belgian equivalent of Bowral, I was in heaven. This is a photo of their function room where they have cleverly used  a range of different sized crystal ball lights (we stock the medium size).
