Training Day

Last week we were treated to a truly special day out - a training day at the head office of iconic luxury lighting & furniture designers, Porta Romana.

We have long been devotees of the Porta Romana products and have, over the years, supplied many of their exquisite lamps, beautiful shades and sculptural pieces of furniture to our discerning clients.

To be in the enviable position of seeing the makers at work, witnessing the craftsmanship up close, and realising the numerous stages of development was simply extraordinary. Like the seed head that was found on a walk in the woods - then developed into concept sketches and technical 3D drawings, through prototyping, crafting, and hand painting, until it finally transforms into the breath-taking Urchin Chandelier – each and every piece has a story.

A highlight was a visit to the painting studio, which was reminiscent of our art school days - paint splattered floors, jars of brushes and a buzz with makers applying finishes on an array of striking creations, we were even allowed to have a go at silver leafing - something that we’ll definitely leave to the experts - a team of very special people that can turn amazing ideas into exciting and inspiring reality.
