Pendant lighting is not so much a trend as a ‘here to stay for good’. Whether hanging low over a kitchen island, breakfast bar or more latterly as bedside lights, the scope for design is huge. I’ve noticed too that because the look is so popular these days, you see the same styles again and again. So when the Case Pendant collaboration between Vitamin and someday designs pinged into my inbox, it was like a breath of fresh air.
Both Vitamin and someday designs are British brands. The former, based out of East London was established in 2004 by brothers Chris and Andy Vernall. The aesthetic is modern, minimalist, graphic resulting in a stunning collection of simple, elegant pieces. The latter is a design-led interiors and lifestyle store, offering both curation of other designers who share a like-minded approach as well as own-brand ranges with the launch of their first in-house sofa collection at designjunction back in 2017.
The collaboration between these two small but dynamic labels launched at Maison & Objet in Paris earlier this year. It features the Case Pendant lighting in three colours: charcoal, natural and blush, retailing at £65 per lamp through someday designs. Each of the lamps are handmade here in the UK and made from glazed earthenware ceramic. They’re also produced in small batches to ensure exact
form, colour and textured finish are achieved every single time.
Now, I know exactly where I would put these but sadly the room isn’t in the right set up yet. Our top floor bedroom is a loft conversion which the previous owners completed. But instead of turning the sloping part of the room into a stylish storage area, they put the bed there and left all their old wardrobes against another wall. My plan is at some point to reconfigure the space so we can create a much more tranquil sleeping area and not be tucked under the eaves. Fingers crossed when it’s ready, the Case Pendants will still be available. I have a feeling I’ll be hunting some down.
