We have a great range of unique statement lighting
We have been in the industry now for 45 years and have a wealth of contacts, suppliers and designers we work with all over the world. While our lighting showroom is only in Bristol don’t think that stops us. We have visited lighting showrooms and factories across Europe and Asia to source and sometimes even develop the best lighting and LEDs. Lighting has come along so far in the last 15 years. From 2 wall lights and a central pendant being accepted as a lighting design to people using 5-10 lighting circuits to really enhance the room. We now have LED tape, RGB lighting and a choice of pendants and wall lights that is sometimes a little over-whelming. On our website we have over 12,000 lights to choose from and to be honest that’s not all of them. We are always actively looking for new suppliers and contacts. Only this week we have found two new suppliers and secured B2B accounts and stockists discounts. So that's another 500 lights in our portfolio just this week.
So where do you start? The million dollar question. So the answer is to pick a room and go from there, then agree on the style. How do you want the room to feel and look. Modern, traditional, industrial... you can use websites like Houzz and Pintrest to help you identify what you like and what you don’t. Then you can always call or stop in and speak to us here in our showroom for more help. We have a lighting designer in our showroom and he will work directly with you. Helping you locate lighting in the best spot and make sure the light fittings and LEDs used work in the best way.
So lighting can now be as much about the fitting as the light. What we mean by this is on or off a light fitting can make a serious impact. While we appreciate the subtle influence of a discreet minimalist light sometimes you want that instant wow factor. The best example of this is a dramatic light fitting over a gorgeous staircase. A double height ceiling invites you to fit something really amazing. Below we will show some of our favourite designs and statement lights to give you a feel for what we have available. With 45 successful years of business under our belt I think its fair to say we know what our customers want. While a fancy website and big discounts are favourable we still push good old fashioned customer service and a perfect lighting showroom to showcase the lighting is the best way. We approach each design and client with there own merit and take time to listen and identify what is needed. Our website is a last resort and we only ask people to check it if we have exhausted all other options. In a changing world with the high street facing its biggest struggle we are still actively investing in our shop and have plans to open a second lighting showroom soon.... watch this space.
Our favourite styles of lighting.
Lets start with kitchen pendants as this is a very important room to get right. Simple statement clear glass pendants look amazing and suit almost any style of kitchen. We have a huge choice of these and below are some of the best in the range. We have various sizes and styles. Recently we have seen a more opulant approach to the designs with opal glass making a big come back.
There are some stunning statement wall lights in our range and we have a great choice on display in our showroom. These are some of the best and are often favoured by our clients.
Large feature ceiling pendants and lights.
Often popular for use in double height rooms or over a feature staircase. These really make a big impact and will get noticed on or off. To start we have our handmade flagship frame cube light. We have this on display in the 600mm x 600mm size but we can make them almost any size. We have gone as big as 1000mm before for a barn conversion and it was finished in stunning matte black finish. We can supply a mix of exiting filament LED lamps that produce an amber warm glow of light.
Then we have the ever popular ice cube multi drop pendant light. This has been afforded on numurous lighting designs and still wins favour in the showroom. It just doesn't date. So if its a safe choice of light fitting you are looking for then look no further than this elegent modern master piece. We love this light and so do our clients.
Unusual lighting designs.
Now a few wild cards. These are what we would describe as marmite lights. People either love them or loath them but if its a statement you want to make then these are going to do it well. We also offer a full design and bespoke build service. We have created some amazing lights over the years for our clients. Including converting a missile case into a floor lamp for a man cave. So dont be afraid to discuss an idea or concept with us, we may be able to help you.
Statement bathroom lighting.
Making a statement in your bathroom or ensuite is a challenge. Having worked on 1000s of bathrooms and created some amazing designs if you want to make a statement then the best way is to include a chandelier or pendant light over your bath. People dont expect to see a hanging light in the bathroom as they assume they are not IP rated and cant be used. Well we have some options and they look amazing.
Bedroom lighting inspiration
So when it comes to your bedroom lighting there are many directions you can take. When we are asked what lighting works well we often recommend a fabric pendant ceiling light and matching bedside wall lights. We offer a gorgeous range of fabric shades in a range of colours with a metal coloured inside. These sit over the bed and really work well in the space. LED tapes in wardrobes or around windows can also offer a nice source of secondary lighting. Dont forget you want to make sure a dressing table or mirror also has adequete light. This can be acheived with a baffled downlight. Below are a few images of some unusual and inspired bedroom lights. We have lots of options available and have a great choice on display in the showroom.
Statement garden lighting
So the garden and exterior of your home should not be overlooked. We have seen some very creative and inspired garden designs over the years and the lighting plays a key role in this. While the budget may not be available during a house build or renovation to allow this, trust us when we say if lighting is important to you then you will want exiting garden lights. So while your home is being worked on at the very minimum put a cable in place to light and power the outside. Then revisit this space when you have more time and money. Below are some seriously cool outdoor lights to inspire you. We also have a large exterior lighting display in our lighting showroom which is well worth a visit. Don't foget our lighting designer can also put a stylish lighting design together for you garden.
Best selling lights
We have also created a brand new section online called our best sellers. We appreciate not everyone can come and see us in the showroom and people do shop and browse online. So this new section of our website was put together with the help of our lighting designer to show the best designs and lights. We have put them into 6 catergories to try and narrow them down based on application. For any help we are always available on the phone 01179425355 or via email [email protected]
Our showroom address is 131 Gloucester Road, Bristol, BS7 8AX. You can also follow us on Facebook or Twitter for more info and design ideas on lighting.
