Lighting Styles You Need

San Francisco’s Jonathan Browning Studios create some of the world’s finest bronze, brass and steel light fixtures, and now its products have just landed in New Zealand for the first time. Established in 2003 by Jonathan Browning and Marco Heithaus, the studio uses the investment cast process, which involves first carving each design in wood to be used for producing moulds and waxes for casting.

All of the techniques used by the studio ensure every fixture can maintain the highest level of detail possible during production. As a final testament to the studio’s dedication to superior craftsmanship, every product is polished by hand before it is shipped out for sale. By going to such great lengths to produce quality fixtures, it’s no wonder these timeless pieces are meant to last forever.

The collections include chandeliers, sconces, floor and table lamps, as well as furniture and window hardware, all with a focus on classicism and industrial design. A range of Jonathan Browning lighting is now available exclusively at

Bathroom Trends of 2018

For long-term investments like a bathroom, it’s important that new product designs are in tune with the latest trends. Mico’s Adesso range of European-inspired products capture the varied bathroom design trends of 2018.

Natural tones and materials such as timber are contrasted by new metallics, while old-world glamour is shown with silky marble and bronze tapware. For a contemporary look, opt for deconstructed luxe with concrete basins and matte black finishings.

Get inspired by the following trends of 2018.

Baths: linger and luxuriate in sleek free-standing baths with depth for comfort and style.

Tapware: enhance your bathroom’s style by adding a pop of colour, from modern matte black to romantic rose gold. Brass with a chrome, brushed nickel or black finish is an elegant option.

Urban Finishes: White, black and gunmetal are modern, stylish colours to choose, while wooden finishes add depth, texture and warmth.

Vanities: focus on hard lines and square shapes. It’s all about modern, sophisticated and clean design.
