Our raw metal light collection is a range made from unpolished brass or steel. The untreated metal acquires a natural patina that shows some of the colour variations and slight marks resulting from the heating and spinning process.

We love this warm finish as it has the real depth found in antique pieces. It's a living material that will continue to change subtly over time.

Here you can see Jean at work in his family-run workshop as he is heating the metal of one of our Old School Lamps. He has learned his craft from his father who also stills works in the business along with his mother and sister. Together they have made lights for The French House since 2005.
