New Irishman in Town!

Our favourite Max Benjamin Fig Arabesque Candle from the Ilum Collection is sparking joy in the showroom.

Each year, the Cheltenham Gold Cup marks possibly the biggest and most welcome influx of Irish horse-racing punters to Cheltenham. Sneaking under the radar, and on a much smaller scale, we are pleased to announce that L’una Design have just welcomed a new visitor from Ireland to our Cheltenham furniture and kitchen showroom…Welcome Max Benjamin!

Well, OK, not quite. We’ve been rumbled. Let us explain…Max Benjamin is not in fact an Irishman, well not one we know anyway. It is, however, the name of a fantastic Irish company that manufacturers candles to die for. Irish owned Max Benjamin, is run by two brothers Mark and David Van den Bergh. Named after their nephews, Max and Ben, who are the sons of their sister Orla (founder of the company), they have been producing high quality candles and diffusers since the early 1990’s.

The collection has evolved over the years from the original Oberg range of hand poured pillar candles into what is now an international brand which currently includes 17 fragrances of luxury natural wax candles as well as fragrance diffusers and a hand and body care range.

Now being sold in Harrods in the UK, across Europe and in Japan, Max Benjamin candles and diffusers are a great addition to our range of home accessories. We asked our lead Interior Designer, Michele, to pick a favourite from the range, and without hesitation she choose the Fig Arabesque Candle from the Ilum Collection. At 2.15kg and contained within a beautiful ceramic container, this is a real centrepiece to any living room.

If you are passing our showroom in Montpellier, Cheltenham, then call in and we can show you the products we have available as well as discuss others that can be ordered on request. If we happen to be closed and you’re in Montpellier at night, then you will see some of the product on display, dotted around the Italian Pedini kitchens and furniture by luxury brands including B&B Italia, Fritz Hansen & Baxter. We don’t mind you peering in..!, but if we’re in, do come in.
