If you're looking for Eco-Friendly lighting than it doesn't get much better than this!
Constructed from Reclaimed Venetian Blinds that were destined for landfill; this pendant light is impeccably finished and creates the perfect ambience when lit.
Designed & made by Scottish-born maker Adrian Lawson, the original light takes its name 'The Avalon' from the place where the idea was born and made. He spent two years perfecting the design and refining it to its current form right here in Avalon, Sydney. This new light, 'The Brasilia' is named after the capital city of Brazil and pays homage to Oscar Niemeyer, the architect behind the city's unique architectural design, which is now a Unesco World Heritage site.
Available in Basswood, this particular light features White, Black, Blue or Green plastic components to hold the slats together, all manufactured in Australia. Once you've selected your hardware component's colour, you'll need to choose your diffuser, White for a soft, warm glow or Opaque for a brighter light. There is also the choice of White or Black cloth suspension cable with matching ceiling canopy and a longer choice of cable. Refer to Features below.
Perfect hung on their own, in a cluster of 3 or 4 at varying heights to create a chandelier-like effect or even hung in a row all at the same height down a wall or above a dining room table, the Avalon Pendant light is quite versatile and can be installed in many different formations.
Available in-store assembled or order a flat-packed version online.

Can I use these lights outdoors?
Please note that all of the Upcycled Pendant Lights are recommended for indoor use only.
What sort of bulb would you recommend?
A bulb is not included so the following is suggested for use with your new Upcycled Pendant Light:
- Bayonet base (B22)
- 60-watt max Luminescent Globe
- LED 6-8 watt = 60 watt - lumen 806lm
- CFL 15 - 18 watt = 60 watt - lumen 806lm
- LED 16 -20 watt = 100 watt - lumen 1521lm
- CFL 20 -25 watt = 100 watt - lumen 1521lm
Remember that this sort of comparison is only part of the story. Different globe types serve different purposes, behave differently, have their own practical advantages and disadvantages and cover a broad range of costs and lifespans. This is especially the case for LED globes, which differ very significantly from product to product. Lumen value source: EU ERP equivalence comparison (supplied by https://www.lightingcouncil.com.au )
