How would you describe your style?

"We consider lighting sources as objects of art, or as a particular suitability to a theme. Our lampshades, olive range lighting, antique and vintage stock, as well as our collection of quality classic design made to order items,  are smart stand-alone pieces."

"One of our recent projects has been commented on by the owner.  

'It was only when I bought a very old period listed property in rural Hampshire that I came to appreciate Alistair’s wider offering and talents. The property dates back, in parts, to the 13th Century with later Tudor and Stuart additions and then Georgian and later modifications. It can be quite a challenge in terms of design, furnishing, lighting and décor.

Alistair visited and immediately identified what would and would not work, in keeping with the property’s character and history, but acknowledging and trying to accommodate my own preferences. Alistair always explained why he felt that a particular feature, colour, lighting regime or ‘piece’ would or would not work and he invariably proved to be right. He has a great ‘eye’.

I also found Alistair to be practical and cost-conscious. Old houses can eat up a budget very quickly and where appropriate Alistair worked with existing features or pieces, rather than suggesting change for change’s sake. It was not about Alistair, but about me as the client and the house. He did not try to turn the house into something it was not, seamlessly introducing contemporary touches and modern lighting into the centuries’ old character of the property, enabling modern living in a period setting. He has really good and sensibly priced contacts for the purposes of sourcing furniture, artwork, rugs and other items, old and new.'”
