We are very excited to have Anglepoise join the TLS family. For over 70 years, Anglepoise has created table lamps and table lights that are now British design classics. In that time, they have redefined all a table lamp has been and can be. The table lamps remain true to George Carwardine’s original design whilst incorporating modern features. The company are currently celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Anglepoise Original 1227, just one of their famous range

TLS looks at… Iittala!

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Iittala started as a glass factory in 1881, in a village of the same name in Finland. In its primitive years Iittala made simple glass wear to continental models. At the beginning of the 20th century this changed, Iittala was one of the first companies to move away from traditional decorative dinnerwear, and approach design in a more modern, functional and aesthetically pleasing way,  introducing a progressive Scandinavian element.


The arrival of the modernist and functionalist movements during the 1930s and 40s had a big influence on the company, with pioneers such as Alvar and Aino Aalto and Kaj Franck leading the progession of the brand, design developed to match the designers philosophy that everything should be created with thought, and beauty, was well as being functional and accessible to everyone.

Today Iiittala is still producing these classic designs as well as creating new products, always keeping to the same design ethos. You can shop Iittala products at The Lollipop Shoppe by clicking here

TLS Loves…. The Handsome Family Woodshop

Monday, October 26th, 2015

The Handsome Family Woodshop was founded in 2015 by Fine Art graduates Josie Ord and Harvey Lidbetter. Both coming from separate (despite the name suggests!) wood working families. The Handsome Family use their ten years experience in the trade to create beautifully crafted objects and installations. We love the work they do with reclaimed timber and up cycling, taking something old and worn out and making it contemporary. As fellow Brighton residents, it’s great to see young designers emerging from our creative city.
