Because the stars in the desert always shine brighter
In Australia, it takes four things to qualify as a city: a phone booth, a mailbox, an ATM (it used to be a bank), and a pub. Parachilna is one of the last cities to enter the Australian desert north of Adelaide.
And these four things are all Parachilna has today. It is located on the railway that joined the old Ghan line that crosses Australia from north (Darwin) to south (Adelaide). The Ghan was an impressive piece of work back then, and even today it is an amazing machine that is powerful enough to travel 3,000 km of desert. The line's name comes from Afghan camel drivers who were first brought to Australia in the 19th century to help explore the unknown desert.
Ups and downs
After many years of successful ups and downs in the lighting industry, we decided to create Parachilna. Dedicated to decorative lighting, Parachilna was born out of our love for luxury. For us, luxury is the integrity of the design, the quality of the materials and the craftsmanship that creates it. Maintaining the skills and knowledge of the few remaining blacksmiths, glass blowers, potters and other skilled craftsmen in Europe and hopefully the rest of the world.
