Designed and manufactured by Holloways of Ludlow, the Old School Electric lighting collection is a range of high quality lighting based on the industrial designs of the early twentieth century but with inspiration sources that go back as far as the Industrial Revolution and the Victorian times.
Following the history of lighting design up to today’s Industrial Chic trend, Holloways of Ludlow created their own series of products in high quality finishes including antique silver or brass, or smoked or opal glass. The warmth of the materials used is enhanced by the antique style bulbs used. From concept to tiny detail, almost everything from the Old School Electric collection is made in Britain, as Holloways of Ludlow explain:
“We have been inspired by the Industrial Revolution and how, in Victorian times everyday items were manufactured to the highest standards here in Great Britain! To this end, wherever possible, Old School Electric products are manufactured here. We have to be honest and say that there are still a few components that we cannot currently source here but we are working on it. However, you can be confident that we use factories and suppliers up and down the country; steel from Sheffield, vitreous enameling in the Black Country, cabling from Surrey.”
From their extensive collection, we only select a few designs such as:
Bell Blown Glass Pendant
With a timeless and beautiful look, this design is handcrafted and can be purchased in four different shapes, three different sizes of shade, as well as various metal finishes and flex colours, thus being suited to any style. The pendant comes with one metre of twisted flex, a metal ceiling rose, gallery and BC bulb holder, still there is also the option to order the item with special order fittings.
Borders Galvanised Outdoor Light
This industrial, galvanised outdoor light has a rustic look, and is perfect for a porch or entrance area. Supplied with clear glass this light can accommodate traditional filament bulbs for a heritage feel or modern, high output LED bulbs where lots of light is required.
A solid brass oval bulkhead light, suitable for exterior use and rated to IP54, this design is available in brass and nickel finishes, and in two sizes.
Industrial Wall Light
This simple angled wall bracket is available in a selection of different finishes: antique silver or brass, polished nickel or brass, copper and a variety of coated colours, from white to yellow, red or black. Using the clamp on the joint, this versatile light can be fixed at any angle and its paired down design is both utilitarian and functional.
An adjustable, versatile design providing bright down lighting, this is a single-armed brass wall light that’s fully adjustable, can pivot and moves up and down on a swivel arm. It is suitable for industrial and modern interior spaces.
The perfect add for a modern and stylish interior, this design plays with the texture and reflections of the clear glass. For a stunning statement look, Holloways of Ludlow recommend to hang in groups of three above the dining table or in the bedroom.
