The conical pendant lamps were designed specifically for La Petite Bretagne in west London, but Paul Crofts decided to start producing them separately after a reader called them "amazing".

"It was actually from the comments made on Dezeen when the La Petite Bretagne was published that convinced me to invest personally and put the three lights into production," Crofts told Dezeen.

The three Nonla lights are named after the Vietnamese word for traditional Asian hats of the same shape.

Each has a different angled profile and can be displayed individually or as a set.

    Absolutely beautiful! Clean and sleek, aesthetically pleasing design.

  • Friggin’ gorgeous! Pardon my language. Love the minimalist white against the warm wood tone. Now I wish I could afford one or two.

    I like the use of materials and his enthusiasm, but I think these shapes have really been overdone recently. Having said that, obviously there is a demand for this type of design at present good to striking while the iron’s hot.
