The Lollipop Shoppe x Between Two Thorns

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Coming up, The Lollipop Shoppe will be hosting workshops in our beachfront showroom with the very lovely, Between Two Thorns.

Between Two Thorns began life in early 2017 as a mere market stall in the centre of Brighton selling cut flowers. With Alys’ background in floristry – it seemed a natural transition to sell ready made bouquets. Unfortunately it didn’t work! So flowers led down a natural path to plants and after much experimenting, propagating, courses, reading and research, the littlest plant shop was born.

The Brighton based plant shop, coffee shop and work shop have just this week populated TLS with a selection of beautiful, easy to care for, houseplants to enhance your interior.

Between Two Thorns is holding a Make Your Own Terrarium here at The Lollipop Shoppe on 13 May, starting at 12pm. You can book your place here.

Imagine having a plant that needs very little care…that exists in its very own ecosystem! Well you don’t have to imagine – you can build one for yourselves! Everything is provided and you take your very own terrarium home with you when you have made it.

Norwegian heritage meets the modern need for laid-back luxury and cutting-edge cool

Monday, March 19th, 2018

Northern Lighting was founded in Olso in 2005. This year, they made the decision to rebrand as simply Northern. This has come with a new selection of furniture and accessory items inspired by the rugged landscapes and clear blue waters, dramatic horizons reflected in breath-taking Norwegian fjords that surround and inspire the design studio. Northern was established to pioneer where creative expression meets traditional craft, and where pale beauty is coupled with rough-cut contrasts. Inspirations such as these are sparking new directions for design. They combine beauty with functionality, and prefer natural materials and genuine craftsmanship. Furniture and interior accessories are a natural fit enabling a characteristic style in a whole new scale.

Northern’s debut collection is simplicity at its best, spelled out in streamlined designs that are fun to combine and easy to clash and contrast. Smoked wood, twilight colours and strong silhouettes create subdued moods, while subtle geometries and classic sensibilities add an elegant touch. We see the interior as a flexible, creative space, and make multifunctional products that are unified in style, as well as in spirit.

Shelter is a tabletop is bordered by perforated steel, forming a lightweight screen that wraps around the front and sides. The surface itself is crafted from a smoked oak veneer supported between legs made in steel. The screen provides a compelling backdrop for contemporary artefacts, forming a focal point that lends itself to arrangements of ornaments and objects. Shelter’s versatility and simplicity make it a great fit for any type of environment.

Hifive storage system is as cool as they come. The system is comprised of streamlined modular components: an open unit, a cabinet with a scrolling door, a sleek metal base and a wooden top that unites the units with a single surface. If no base is required, the units can be mounted directly to the wall. The cabinet is designed to hold equipment such as receivers, amps and multimedia players. Its scrolling door closes to conceal the contents, hiding the electronics behind a flexible wooden screen. The open unit is sized to accommodate old-school vinyl LPs but can store music and television media too. The units are available in a smoked oak veneer, black painted oak veneer and light-coloured oiled oak veneer. Contemporary in expression and practical in scope, Hifive can provide storage for a range of items.

 

New from Louis Poulsen

Friday, September 1st, 2017

As the summer draws to a close and the days start to get shorter it’s time to start thinking about lighting! Thankfully Louis Poulsen are way ahead of us and have just launched some new products and finishes.

The Lollipop Shoppe Louis Poulsen Yuh Table Lamp Yuh Wall Lamp Yuh Floor Lamp

The Yuh range takes it’s design cues from the likes of Arne Jacobsen and Poul Henningsen, with designers GamFratesi adding their own add their own characteristic and aesthetic playfulness.

Yuh is created for you. One of the essential features of the lamp is that it is personal. It rotates, rises and drops, allowing the user to adjust the lighting to their taste. Perfect for use as a bedside lamp or by your favourite chair. Each lamp provides a direct glare-free down-light with a gentle upward glow.

Like many of the lights found the Louis Poulsen product range, the Yuh incorporates a diffuser to help shield users from glare and provide a more gentle quality of light. This idea stems greatly from the work of the famous lighting designer Poul Henningsen.

“We like the fact that you do not see the light source and are not dazzled. With a diffuser, the light source is concealed, which we think makes the illumination very magical,” says Stine Gam.

A single push button controls on/off and dimming. There is also a clever timer function which automatically turns off the light after a selectable 4 or 8 hours.

Available in a Table, Floor and Wall version.

As well as this Louis Poulsen are also introducing some welcome new finishes for the Doo-Wop and VL38 lamps.

Initially released in white and brass only, the popular VL38 range is now available in an elegant black and brass finish.

What’s New – Home Accessories – Kähler Ceramics

Friday, July 7th, 2017

The TLS team are always searching out great new home accessories, furniture and lighting products. Recently we’ve been very busy expanding our wonderful selection of home accessories including some amazing products from Kähler Ceramics.

A new brand to TLS is Kähler Ceramics – Danish design since 1839.

The Lollipop Shoppe Home Accessories Kahler Ceramics

One of our favourite products from Kahler has to be their classic Sparedyr Fish Money Banks. The first fish banks were designed in 1920’s by Nils Kähler, they were developed when Nils began experimenting with creating a range of animal shaped money boxes & decorative ceramic animals. Originally used as a way for new apprentices to develop their technical skills, and due to there popularity went on to become some of the most popular products from Kähler Ceramics.

Today these sweet little fish have now been carefully reinterpreted, with each money box still carefully decorated by hand, meaning that no two are alike and unlike the original money banks (which you had to break open!) these new designs have a convenient hole on the bottom which is sealed with cork stopper.

We’re also stocking a variety of pieces from the lovely Hammershoi collection. Inspired by the classic vases of the world-renowned artist Svend Hammershøi Hans-Christian Bauer has now reinterpreted these iconic designs for the next generation.
