Why We Love CTO Lighting
CTO Lighting’s designs exhibit a thoughtful method of production in regards to materials and workmanship by the British artisans that create them. They use high-quality materials such as hand-finished metals, mouth-blown glass and handcrafted stone work. Each product family has its own story to tell, yet can manifest in many different shapes and sizes while still feeling comprehensive and unique.

Noteworthy Products from CTO Lighting
The Array Mini Cotton Chandelier is a fine display of asymmetry, aiming direct and diffused light in multiple directions with individual metal arms. The overall shape is hardly uniform—each adjustable arm is bent at a different location to make beauty out of variation. The shades are lined with a shiny interior, reflecting light in both open directions with a touch of metallic warmth.
