If you want a pendant that’ll make a statement, but not dominate a space, then choose Shaftesbury in bronze and glass. Despite its size, its transparency helps it to melt into the background. It also won’t add any more colour – just the thing for a busy room or one you want to keep minimal.
Design & engineering
Material and finish
There’s a real sense of Shaftesbury’s making in its glass, which has the tell-tale swirls of a piece that’s mouth-blown. They create reflections and patterns that enhance the light. The metal sections are actually made from strong steel, but finished with a deep bronze finish that’s brushed to give it a subtler look.
Shaftesbury comes with a simple bronze ceiling rose and matching chain (these are made from steel with a dark bronze finish), as well as a coordinating black silk flex. The chain and flex are two metres long so you have the flexibility to cut them to the length that suits your space.
