We’re expecting big things for this one!

The Hive [design by hive] catalogue is full of pieces reminiscent of their original concept inspiration.  Poppy falls into this category, bearing a striking resemblance to its namesake flower only adding a whole new dimension.   Aptly described by Hive as

Simply alluring, lovely, and remarkable

…the Poppy collection embodies a soft femininity, a graceful and calm piece which quietly dominates with its beauty.

Poppy takes it form from a series of meticulously hand-folded paper blossoms fixed together and then wired to a metal frame, the pieces becoming a round bouquet of paper flowers.  The light is available as both a suspension and floor lamp and when illuminated, Poppy glows from its inner source. providing a wonderful sense of warmth. Adding extra lamps will only enhance the feeling of a tranquil field of poppies.
