backlane designs evolved in 2012 when Helen and Sue, two garden designers, felt ready for a change in direction. Our philosophy is simple: we are inspired by a love of gardening, cooking and eating home grown food with friends.
We wanted to get back to basics with an original design that could provide subtle mood lighting for dining at home. Useful, unique and stylish was our personal brief. In order to reflect these waste not want not times we chose a familiar material, corrugated re-cycled board. We like the purity of this material and feel it is both gentle on the eye and on the planet.
The stylish simplicity of City Lights suits any interior whether minimalist or fabulously eclectic. A row of City Lights flickering on a shelf, dresser or bookcase offers a subtle alternative to conventional mood lighting.
