All his products are designed to bring the outside in, including his Comber lighting range that captures the beauty of the shoreline inspired by the Atlantic Ocean and Cornish tides.

We strive to inspire a like-minded conscious community and have a positive impact helping to create a world where people and nature thrive for future generations to enjoy”. – Founder, Tom Raffield
