Bespoke Lighting for the Classically Inclined

Alexa Hotz March 05, 2012

Frustrated by a dearth of light fixtures that he could spec for his buildings, architect Charles Morris was inspired to produce his own line of classically simple sconces, table lamps, and chandeliers.

An aficionado of the Arts & Crafts movement and a member of the Art Workers' Guild in London (not to mention architect of Orchard Room at Prince Charles’s Highgrove estate), Morris designs lights that are clearly inspired by tradition but have an idiosyncratic charm all of their own. His fixtures—which he says are "equally at home in a Tudor manor or a minimalist studio"—can be seen at his London showroom and are also available online.

Above: The Brampton Table Lamp (L) features a swivel arm and candleholder; £660. The Rodmarton Single Arm Wall Light (R) is made of patinated steel; £144.
