Here are three launches that caught our eye this week – a diffuser floor lamp, wide width sheers in a variety of designs and an intricate leather wallcovering

Houseof is a new lighting and homewares brand launched just last year. The company says its aim is to ‘design beautiful products, be nice to people and do less harm’. The brand offers stylish yet functional products with each piece designed and made in house. This soft pink, tripod floor lamp with diffuser shade would work in the living room or bedroom. The energy efficient LED light reflects back into the oversized dome, creating a warm illuminating glow. Houseof uses plastic free packaging to help reduce waste.

From Villa Nova, Ceto is a versatile and delicate range of 22 wide width sheers in a variety of designs and textures – including metallic highlights and unusual yarn combinations. Ceto is available in a spectrum of whites, creams and neutrals plus watery shades. Highlights include Kishi a printed sheer reminiscent of a Japanese garden, Lin an all over spot design created using a devoré technique, and Ceto with a subtle design that graduates up the cloth. Villa Nova was founded in 1993 with a team of in-house designers producing eclectic collections based upon the philosophy of modern, versatile fabrics, wallcoverings and accessories that offer affordable style. Villa Nova is a division of the Romo Group.

Italian based Studioart presents its new collection Duo, inspired by the geometry of nature. Duo is a leather wallcovering made up of two layers of contrasting coloured leather, with intricate triangles engraved and etched onto the surface. The design conjures up images of fractured rock, lava or naturally formed crystals.
