Ranging from Classic to Contemporary, the New Classic collection draws on design styles from the past combined with totally original ideas. Complete ranges of table floor and wall lights with matching chandeliers or pendants are offered thereby providing for a consistent total lighting solution.
Different finishes are offered to suit different tastes and environments. These vary from highly polished nickel to oxidised brass finishes that achieve a patina almost indistinguishable from a genuine antique finish. Some of our designs incorporate high quality crystal, some use hand made art glass, some use fine quality soft shades.
Our designs can take up to two years from the earliest concepts to get the finished product at the standard our customers expect from us. All our lamps are made from high quality materials with great attention to detail all the way from the earliest stages in design, through manufacture and testing, to final delivery to our customers.
The earliest style that inspires our Modern Classic collection is the Arts and Crafts movement from the latter part of the 19th century is the. Our Montagu and Starfish ranges reflect many of the design principles of W A S Benson (1854-1924) who was closely associated with William Morris. Making art metalware for oil, gas and electric lamps, he became one of the principle designers of early electric lighting.
The Arts and Crafts movement was followed by Art Nouveau, which spread out of Europe in the late 19th century up until the first world war. The typical flowing and natural lines of Art Nouveau can be seen in our Zina range. This has been further enhanced by wonderful hand made art glass typical of skilled glass artisans that developed new ideas and designs in the Art Nouveau period. All the colour is within the glass, n paints or stains are used. Shades are blown by hand. Then coloured glass is added whilst the shade is still hot – an exercise that demands great skill and patience.
The hard lines of Art Deco followed and Art Deco was quickly established as the principle design movement after the 1st world war. Thoroughly modernist, many designs of this period are all around us and still regarded as contemporary. We use Art Deco style glass with our Columbia range and we are now developing several designs in the Art Deco style.
Edwardian style is much more traditional than Art Deco although concurrent with it. Our Stanford range is in Edwardian style, but modernised for today’s taste. Britain has many pre-war houses and this range particularly suits them. It been a very successful range that has been constantly expanded and now includes chandeliers small enough for a low ceiling to 21 light spectacular pieces to fill a large void. Swing arm floor, table and wall lamps are recent introductions.
Modern designs of Interiors 1900 include stylish table lamps that will sit with most domestic or commercial interiors. Our Prestige collection is an example. By contract, our Delta range is very sculptural and will suit any contemporary setting. Another very contemporary product is our Starfish lamp, which is a good example of thinking “out of the box”. It is thoroughly contemporary, although it is inspired by early design of electric lamps.
