The majority of our lights can be delivered to anywhere in mainland UK on a next day service for FREE. Whilst global delivery can be achieved within 2-5 days.
We're often asked which lightbulbs are best for our light fittings - particularly whether vintage, industrial lights need special bulbs. It might come as a surprise that we actively recommend standard domestic bulbs for our lights - exactly the same as you'd buy for a modern fixture.Lighting Advice
