To book an appointment with our in house lighting designer, Fraser, please email us [email protected] or give us a call to schedule your appointment 01179425355. Our lighting showroom is in Bristol and this is where we would normally meet. Our lighting showroom is constantly updated with the latest exiting designs, LEDs and displays. In fact our showroom is often prioritised over any online presence or our website. We are a 46 year old business built on a foundation of customer service and offering a unique and enjoyable buying experience. While many companies have invested in websites and SEO we find our customers prefer a high end showroom full of the latest lights and innovative displays.
During the initial meeting Fraser will walk you round the showroom and outline particular light fittings he thinks will work in your home. Asking questions and looking over your plans he will begin to determine the focus of the design and your priorities. Listening and getting you involved as much as possible. Starting with the primary lighting for the space he will then build up the design in layers. Having worked on lighting designs for close to 13 years now he can appreciate how light will behave and effect a space. A lighting design is not simply filling a space with light and then adding a dimmer switch. It is about shadows and atmosphere. Recognizing the different uses you will have for a room and then ensuring the lighting at that given point is correct. Open plan spaces seem to be the biggest challenge for people building or renovating their homes. With a tried and tested approach to lighting design having consulted on 100s of projects he has a wealth of experience to draw on. To back that up we have a choice of over 15,000 lights from designers and suppliers we choose to work with from all over the world.
To schedule a meeting and get the best out of your lighting please get in touch, any questions you have we will be happy to answer.Feel free to check out our work and latest designs on our Facebook page click here.

Industrial style lighting
If you are looking for a great choice of industrial style lighting then we can help. Soft lines, playful curves and comfort? not from the industrial range. It's dominated by hard and functional elements using raw metal parts to spread the rough style of factories. This look celebrates the aesthetic of all things imperfect.
Vintage inspired lighting
Vintage style are new fittings designed to give the used look, this look is to remind us of older times including summer holidays with the grandparents making you feel as though you are travellng back through time to enjoy the nostalgia. Both these styles can be incorporated into any new house build or refurbishment which we can help you with through a visit in store or using our lighting design service.

Round Glass Kitchen Pendants
Round glass ball pendants are designed to hang delicately from ceilings, these pendants provide a warming ambient light suitable for any modern setting. Clear glass allows the brightness of the bulb to shine through while also giving you the opportunity to use Decorative LED Light bulbs such as squirrel cages and globes. Opal Glass still gives you the overall spread of light of the clear but allows you to use brighter bulbs to light larger areas without having the glare. When using pendants above tables or breakfast bars odd numbers look better, choose the size of the globe depending on the size of the space below it. Larger spaces can have clusters together to create a refined look.
Fraser Besant Lighting
As with all Fraser Besant Lighting Fittings we can customise any part of their Glass Ball Pendant range. There are customising options for the ceiling plate, cable or lampholder to be changed to suit decor in your room. On display here in our Bristol Showroom with have a copper E27 lampholder with grey twisted braided flex and a grey ceiling rose. Fraser Besant Lighting has also just released a new colour to the range, Anthracite(ral 7016) ceiling roses and smooth lampholders will be coming soon to complment the range.
