Having supplied light fixtures and fittings to much of London over the years, Holloways of Ludlow know the value of classic, timeless design. They’ve applied this wisdom to Old School Electric, their just-launched lighting brand.

Above: The hand-crafted Bell Blown Glass Pendant works in both contemporary and traditional settings. Its clear glass shade comes in four shapes, from bell (shown here) to cylindrical, and in two sizes. Differing metal finishes and cord colors allow for semi-customization; £115 – £130.

Above: Made in Sheffield, the vitreous enameled Spun-Steel Pendant was originally used in Victorian factories and workshops. It’s available in seven colors, with matching cord, light bulb holder, ceiling rose; £120.

Above: The Industrial Wall Light has a simple clamp on the joint that allows you to fix the light at varying angles. The base can be made in virtually any color and also comes in various metal finishes; £68 – £85.

With so much choice, selecting the perfect lights can be daunting. See our curated favorites in our Catalogue of Lighting.
