As standard, our original vintage lights, due to their antique and often one-off nature, are not UL listed (only applicable to commercial projects in the U.S.A. and Canada). However, UL listing can be undertaken upon application, please contact the studio for more information. We are currently working to obtain full UL certification of our products through our membership with the UK LIA.
