Tent London: Lillys Lightbox Company

This year’s Tent London is sure to satisfy BlogTour London’s design cravings and an artist we won’t want to miss will be Lillys Lightbox Company by designer Felicia Strehmel. Her box lighting is the essence of vintage with modern functionality. The pieces are each made from chests of drawers with handmade acrylic photo slides displaying vintage inspired sepia photos that appear to hover gently within their frame. Many drawers are restored to retain their original charm while others go unchanged to preserve their historical value. Lillys Lightbox Company collage

We love the retro style of the above Radio Erfurt, GDR 1958 and the warm nostalgic light it produces. The Glow Tree lightbox on the right also evokes nostalgia with its soft glow and dreamlike image.  “All of the pieces are built  with traditional electrical fittings produced by small British companies and are fitted, tested and CE certified to be used with energy efficient CFL light bulbs up to 20W,” says Felicia Strehmel. The images slide in and out to permit a easy access to the light bulbs. The boxes are also constructed with brass mirror plates to hang safely.

Two of our favorites among Strehmel’s lightbox collections is that of the London 1908-1948 collection, “The Jump 1908″ and “Brighton Shore” of the Compositions Collection.

We absolutely love the creativity of the reused drawers and the wonderful stories that are being told through the vintage images.

Note from the writer: My birthday is around the corner, just a little food for thought folks. What a fabulous find.
