Designer Emilie Cathelineau’s refined series based on a sailor’s hurricane lantern gets a pared-down turn as a standout wall light. Fashioned in an extensive choice of either polished and satin-finish metals, Storm is powered by an integrated LED, with its bright even illumination filtered through a white polycarbonate diffuser. Venerable French brand CVL produces its handmade lighting at headquarters in the Loire Valley.

Nestled in the Loire Valley, CVL Luminaires first debuted in 1960 and has been handcrafting exquisite lighting pieces in France ever since. Featuring “noble materials” including brass, glass, wood and stainless steel, the company’s autonomy ensures that its products reflect uncompromising quality as well as mindfully sustainable production.
Led by design director Émilie Cathelineau, CVL also collaborates with independent designers like Hervé Langlais, POOL and Kristian Gavoille. In collections ranging from Calé(e) to Saturne, the fixtures reflect a contemporary, and sometimes whimsical, take on classic French epochs like Art Deco. Often glossed with a favorite touch of golden brass, CVL’s offerings define a sense of panache with luxurious materials melded with ever-intriguing forms.
