I have seen this beautiful light in various places recently and it’s been following me in my thoughts- perhaps even to my dreams.

The light is by a brand called Artecnic Inc and was designed (or so the story goes) by a man called Tord Boontje who was struggling to find soft lightshades for his baby daughter. The lightshade creates a beautiful design of light, reminiscent of a forest. It unfolds out of a single sheet of metal.

A wedding dream of many girls is a fairytale forest full of magic and twinkling light. I think this light fits the bill perfectly! It’s the perfect inspiration.

The garland light is available in Australia from De De Ce
