G&M meet Diiiz
Sometimes you just need to see a few items know you really like a brand. That’s how we felt about Diiiz. Set up in 2013 by three partners as reflected in the name. The three iii’s in Diiiz are the partners. Diiiz is all about passion for design and helping you create the interior of your dreams within a budget. Perfect.
Diiiz offers lots of big name replica furniture items as well as their own designs. It’s a great place to source that classic piece that maybe is too much of a stretch as an original, or perhaps you want a new item in a classic style.
We were searching for wall lights and lucky enough Diiiz introduced themselves to us and they had exactly what we needed for a project we were planning. The Nuxe Gold metal wall light was just ideal to sit either side of a large floor to ceiling bay window. An east-facing room, the light floods in during the morning but lacks light in the afternoon and evening. As a practical space as well and a spot to relax in the evening, having lighting options is really important. The light fitting had to have long, swivelling arms and the head needed to be adjustable to focus on the area of the room in use – very design focussed, but also practical.
I have found the triangle head of the Nuxe provides just the right type of light for reading which is perfect for the evenings; you can swing the light over to your favourite reading spot in the bay window and settle down and flick through copies of Elle Decoration and Milk Magazine. This is when form and function come together beautifully. The Nuxe lamp is an original; designed and produced by Diiiz which really appealed to us too – something really unique and well considered. The build quality is excellent too. It’s not flimsy and the materials are top notch. We love intimate and cosy feel its added to the room, perfect for a reading nook, workspace or bedroom.
The lamps come with easy fixings and were easy to fit; I managed to put it up with very little fuss and a few power tools. They came with European plugs but it was simple to change them to British ones, ready to plug in a go. We were also really pleased with the length of the cord. Sometimes you are really limited with the length but the Nuxe Lamp has plenty of cord to stretch to the nearest socket on the corner wall. Perfect!
The gold is a really good colour too. It’s not too brassy and has a really nice satin shine to it that catches the light beautifully. There are no ugly joining pieces or fittings; they have clearly been very well considered during the design process.
We’ve used the lamps in a lounge setting but they’d also be perfect for a bedroom or dining space. I can see them above a bedside table for nighttime reading or above a dining table to provide some more intimate lighting in the evening.
Diiiz isn’t just about lighting either, we’ve got our eyes on a couple of other things as well.
Sally’s Diiiz lust list
Knoll Replica – Tulip Marble Table – by Eero Saarinen. The design of these beautiful marble tables is elegant and timeless. what I love about the Diiiz version is the high-quality marble used and being able to choose from four different sizes and two colourways to suit your space and needs. For me, its got to be the black marble top in the medium size.
A couple of replica Hans Wegner’s wishbone CH24 chairs, classic design and those beautiful curves in natural wood and a black seat. To sit with the dining table. The Diiiz wishbone chair is super comfy and has no less than 100 steps to manufacture. Wow, now that is quality and of course, the Rattan seat is just perfect.
Something that I have always lusted over is the CH07 Shell chair also by Hans Wagner. Now Diiiz has made this replica to a super high standard and is affordable. I just love the way this chair stands firmly on three legs. The leather seat and backrest look and feel fab too.
Anna’s Diiiz Lust List
I really like the mid-century style of the Clover Coffee Table. The three tiers are actually really useful and allow you to style it really well. The wood grain with the gold fittings is beautiful too.
I’ve always loved the George Nelson Platform bench so this replica is a must for me. Both elegant and practical it works with a wide range of style from scandi to ultra modern. Although the bench is a replica, lots of care and attention goes into making each item to ensure the quality is top notch.
