THE CANDY COLLECTION; A CLOSE LOOK AT CAXTON ALILE LIVING’S LATEST LAMP COLLECTION

Lagos-based lifestyle brand focusing on made-in-Nigeria lighting fixtures and home products, Caxton Alile Living, recently launched their most recent lighting collection, the “Candy Collection”.  The collection was first featured at the Guide 2016 exhibition where Caxton Alile Living partnered with sister brand CCinteriors Studio, and Doshlaps to create a beautiful booth experience. The combo-booth went along to win best ambience at the exhibition.

The Candy Collection features a good selection of table lamps and wall sconce-shades designed to leave you with more that one favourite(s). The collection comprises of four lamp types; the Ombre-Pop kids table lamps, the Wafer table lamps, the Biscuit lamps and the Wall Sconce-shades.  The variety of the collection is tied together by the use of similar shapes including circles, cylinders, rectangles and cones of different sizes, combined to create a selection of lamps that are modern, homely and timeless.

All the lamp types in the collection are customisable. The lampshades are made using beautifully textured fabrics including the Yoruba Aso-Oke and Adire fabric and are available in options ranging from baba dudu(black), Nigerian apple, mint sorbet, raspberry sorbet, and grey slate. The base of the lamps are made from solid wood including Teak and Iroko wood.

The Ombre-pop kids table lamps,

The Ombre-Pop kids table lamps have a solid wood base painted with some beautiful colouring to create a charming gradient effect. The names on the lamps are customisable to your needs. Not only are they perfect for kids bedrooms, but they’ll fly easily as perfect gifts.

The Wafer table lamps,

One of the things we love about the 14″ wide Wafer table lamp is it’s characteristic swirled wooden base which features a subtle copper detail.  The copper highlight runs across the bottom of the swirled part of the base, seperating it from the bottom of the base. The bottom part of the base comes finished as baba dudu(black) or solid white. The Wafer table lamps are stylish and beautiful accents in any space and offer a modern twist to the traditional table lamps.
