    Fraser Besant handmade lighting from Bristol

    One of our best selling and certainly most talked about brands is Fraser Besant Lighting which is all handmade in Bristol. This sister company of ours was started in 2015 with a view to recreating British Quality Workmanship. Creating Light Bulbs, Light fittings and wiring accessories, it has now branched out to undertake a lot of bespoke lighting projects. All of the Fraser Besant Lighting range is handmade in the UK and finished at our Bristol Workshop on the famous Gloucester Road. We have lots of this lighting throughout the showroom and we are building on the ranges all the time. With plans to launch a brand new anthracite grey urban collection later this year.

    Fraser Besant Lighting Fabric Cable

    At Fraser Besant lighting we have Fabric Cable in a wide range of colors and styles including the new Baby pink, aqua blue, gold and copper. We have all of this in stock and we sell it per metre or on a 50 metre drum. We offer twisted fabric and round fabric, all ideal for lighting. It is used to wire up table lamps, floor lamps and pendants. When we sell any of the Fraser Besant lighting products we always offer to use a specific colour cable, meaning the customer can customize their new lighting in any way they like. Our new clear glass round ball pendants are a great example of this. These handmade pendants are only £120 each and you can choose any colour lampholder, cable and ceiling rose. It will then get made to your exact spec. How many lighting showrooms offer this unique buying experience?

    Fraser Besant Bespoke Ceiling Roses

    Celing roses are one of the most important finishing touches to any lighting project, At Fraser Besant lighting we have many colour options from gold to copper. The roses are 100mm wide and handamde. You can then choose how many cable outlets you would like. 1-7 holes are the options. We then make them up right in front of you in our open plan workshop, that right you can see us making your lighting. With swag pendant lighting being sopopular we get enquiries every day from people looking for their perfect lighting. We really enjoy helping people and offering this unique experience. On top of this we offer a lovely range of decorative metal cord grips. From copper to matte black. These little grips secure the cable in place and we find its the little finishing touches that really reward our handmade lighting with that classic considered look. 

    Verdigris copper lighting

    This is one of the most popular finishes we offer. This heavily patina week aged finish is simply gorgeous. We have a whole Pod dedicated to this in the showroom. From pendants to bedside wall reading lights. This finish is loved by anyone renovating a barn or looking for unusual lighting for thier country home. It has an industrialfeel to it and because its a naturally week aged product the finish and texture we can acahiev when distressing the copper has to be seen to be belived. It is a 10 out of 10 and is very eyectaching.

    Conduit lighting ideas

    We have designed and engineered a whole range of lights to fit stright onto galvanised conduit. Even LED conduit dimmers. Again we have a big display of this unique and inspired lighting in the showroom now. If you want to acheive a very authentic industrial lighting design then conduit and lighting are a great pair. Check out some of the ingenous conduit lighting ideas we have online now.
