Product Insight: Carella


What was the original thinking/concept behind the Carella?

We wanted to bridge the gap between our functional spiked garden range, such as the Kensington and Kew, and our new decorative garden range and develop a product which would give more of an atmospheric feeling to the garden. Unusually for a John Cullen Lighting products, it is the light source that you look at rather than just the effect. The purpose of it is to discreetly light foliage and low level planting whilst imitating a candle effect.
