New home accent lines include this Cavendish light, made using 100% lead-free glass.

Simon Pearce, creator of fine handcrafted functional glass and pottery tableware, is branching out with new Lifestyle product lines. The new home accent items will include the PURE collection of dramatic one-of-a-kind vessels, and a line of lamps and pendant lights that mirror some of the signature tabletop designs.

The Lifestyle line comes from the design team of Simon Pearce, James Murray and James Zilian, and, like the tabletop items, will be inspired by nature, particularly the surroundings seen every day at the company’s headquarters in Quechee, Vt.

“Offering home accents feels very natural to us,” said Murray, the executive director of product design and development. The new lines also include flatware, textiles and candles.

The company, which moved from Ireland to Vermont in 1981, continues to produce work the old-fashioned way, with glass items handcrafted by 30 glassblowers and pottery handcrafted by 10 potters on staff. The company has grown from five employees to nearly 250.
