Origin: UK

Lighting design in the UK benefitted from a free market. Different companies were working at the same time, designing and producing similar products for the same market. Often with only slight differences in their style, they constantly upgraded and improved their original designs. The products we salvage come from the old industrial heartland of England. This area of the UK was once the boiler room of the British economy - from the potteries of Stoke, through the engineering works of Birmingham, to the wool, textile and cotton mills of Oldham and Manchester.

Restoration

Every one of our lights goes through a variety of processes to bring it from the worn and often dilapidated state it arrives in, to a stage where it is ready for your home. From stripping down and rewiring, to applying a finish and sealing the light preventing further degradation to the surface.

Falks

Manufacturer: Falks

Established in 1881, ‘Falk, Stadelmann and Co. Ltd’ of 91 Farringdon Road, London, were originally importers of, amongst other products, gas fittings and paraffin lamps. In 1962, Falk, Stadelmann and Co changed its name to Falks Ltd - but sadly after poor trading years in the late 1960s the company was taken over by Jessel Investments, who sold off all property and ceased manufacturing activities. We regularly come across lighting by Falks - their prismatic wall lights were particularly well made and remain a timeless industrial classic.
