Chrysalis pendant light

by Adam Cruickshank

Squarepeg is now stocking original chrysalis pendant lights made by Adam Cruickshank. Teamed up with a NUD cord and an energy-saving light globe the chrysalis pendants are strikingly simple. Each one takes on a unique form as you fold the shade together.

The chrysalis pendants are available from squarepeg in yellow, green or orange for $350 each. We also stock a range of colours in the NUD cords ($69) or alternatively you can always use an existing one! You can also see more of Adam’s work on his website at www.adamcruickshank.com.au

hand crafted…

…Local work on show at squarepeg

I guess its fair to say that here at squarepeg we really have two true loves – mid-century furniture and beautifully crafted furniture that’s locally made. You know my love of mid-century so today I thought I would post some pictures of the tables we are stocking that have been locally crafted. The elegant simplicity of all these pieces is just so hard to beat.

Rick Knopke has been working his craft for many years now and squarepeg currently stocks two of his tables.  Both coffee tables are made from a wood veneer on marine ply with a demountable stainless steel base. The tables are priced at $1, 950 each.

Also on the floor is piece by local Freo craftsman Lewis Waters. Lewis’s designs are all about simplicity, durability and innovative construction techniques. The coffee table is handcrafted from Australian wattle ($790).


Our last local that we also love is Adam Cruikshank – its his table in beech that is truly devine ($4,900).

We think there is a lot to be said for furniture that is hand crafted. For one thing, long after you have forgotten how much you paid for a piece, you will still remember what it is that you fell in love with. And it will last a lifetime. Or two or even three.

And its locally made.
