Our B Grade - 'A close look reveals imperfections'. Lighting is generally viewed at a distance. Once installed, it's unlikely these flaws will be noticed.
We're a UK lighting manufacturer who take sustainability seriously. We manufacture our lighting to last, it’s been a fundamental principle in our design, manuacturing and commerce.
Some of the engineering and manufacturing processes we use - such as coating - create a low but unavoidable level of QC (quality control) failures.

These shades are superb - a stylish and very practical design. They look great with or without being illuminated. With the recommended lamps and retro flex they look as good as they do in the wonderful photographs on the website (which is also fabulous).
