Sustainable vintage lighting brands

We recently featured on The Greenish blog in a special post on ‘Sustainable Interiors Brands’, written by Jenny Ellery from The Corner Project. Showcasing brilliant companies that are using innovative and creative ways to help us sustainably decorate our homes, it covers flooring to eco-friendly paint. Our vintage lighting and Full Circle buy-back scheme gets a mention, as do other ethical brands including our friends over at Bert and May for their reclaimed tile selection.

“Vintage lights add a fantastic bit of character to any interior and when you buy from a reputable company they will be fully rewired and tested so can be installed immediately.”

“For something more industrial – think reconditioned Eastern bloc factory lighting - and with a brilliant selection of beautiful glass lights, Cornwall-based skinflint are hard to beat. And if you decide at any point that you no longer want your skinflint light, they will take it back for resale and give you 50% credit towards your next purchase with them.”
