Temple & Ivy’s very first collection is a range of bird leg lamp bases and features Flamingos, African Jacana, African Rail, Runner Ducks and Ostrich.
Temple & Ivy founders and business partners, Nicky Boulton and Susan Neville, spent several months in Kenya and Zimbabwe photographing and tracking birds to launch their first lighting range. Working with an award winning sculptor they ensure that the legs are as life-like as possible capturing the movement of a bird. All the legs in the collection have the appearance of a bird freely walking, not grounded by a base. Birds’ feet are, after all, perfectly balanced for their environment. Temple & Ivy lamps are perfectly suited for theirs – a variety of interior spaces, a dramatic finishing touch.
No lamp is complete without a fabulous shade and attention to detail has ensured a comprehensive and stunning range to complement the legs and finishes. Many of the shades are exquisitely feathered, others are a Patina Copper and some feature Maasai beads. Nicky and Susan are working with a Maasai co-operative in Africa who create all the beaded designs exclusively for them.
