UK

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.

Perihel

Manufacturer: Perihel

Perihel was a highly successful manufacturer of light therapy lamps for both professional and home use, manufacturing elegant light therapy lamps for the clinic and the home. We are unsure of their exact origins but from advertising literature we have in our own archive we can be sure that in the 1930s the company was based in Germany with production in Prague. Then, again based on its product pamphlets, by the 1940s and 1950s it had bases in the UK at Edge Street and Rabbit Row in London.

A quick word from our customers

1940s industrial lights

The quality of what I bought (being around a third of the cost of their top end items) is exceptional. Recommended.

- Steve | London | UK

Fantastic, so pleased

I have never received a more beautifully packaged item, the light itself is wonderful and we are very pleased. 

- Eleanor | Worcester | UK

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.

I love your vintage lights

Thank you skinflint for allowing me to add character to my espresso bar and work desk space! And thanks as well for the fabulous customer service.
