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.
Do we have a right to repair the things we own? As more of us wake up to conscious consumerism, our panel discussion at Clerkenwell Design Week aimed to answer just that.Sustainability

A piece of history
We found exactly what we wanted at skinflint: large industrial pendant lights from an old Dunlop Aerospace factory. They fill the space beautifully and we often get asked where they were sourced. With such heritage attached to them, they are like a piece of history that adds to the modern vintage feel we wanted to create.
