The Trubridge designs come in a variety of finishes. The light ply looks amazing teamed with white, neutrals and blonde timber furniture or joinery.
The pendants cast a subtle pattern on ceilings and walls at night.
David Trubridge pendants are available through ecoco.

  1. The plywood is hopefully a coffin movement. The story must live again and again as the trend catches on with regular folks and who will pledge the thousands of dollars difference in cost to a worthy charity.The warden had the inmates construct simple plywood coffins for themselves and others who could not afford to purchase them. convicted murderer Richard Liggett was asked to make two of the simple plywood coffins he meticulously crafted for fellow prisoners.According to this blog there have good information about playwood .
    Thanks & Regards
