We source our light fittings from some of the best manufacturers in the world and we travel far and wide to seek out the finest fittings for every situation – from uplighting to downlighting, steplighting, feature lighting and spot lighting!

We also provide lighting control systems and all the drivers and electrical equipment you need to make everything work as it should. And if you find all that a bit baffling, we’ll happily talk you through what you need over the phone or face to face.


For customers who want an extra helping hand, we offer a consultancy service, through which we provide detailed lighting design, project specifications, technical drawings and plans – making sure that everyone working on the project has the information they need to do a good job.

What to expect

Our friendly, diligent team is experienced in indoor and outdoor lighting and has worked on an enormous range of projects from private residences to hotels, restaurants, historic buildings, shops and offices. Our attention to detail, sensible suggestions and excellent customer service enable us to demonstrate real value to our customers, who come back time and time again.

Come and have a look

Our studio is at 77 Dales Road, Ipswich, IP1 4JR. We have a variety of lighting on display so you’ll be able to visualise how your chosen fittings will look in situ.

The studio gives home owners, architects and interior designers the perfect setting to learn about the latest products, technology and designs. We also host events and seminars throughout the year, to demonstrate the latest techniques, models and technology.

In the meantime do explore this website to learn more about what we do and browse our products and case studies to see what we’ve done in the past. Every project is different and we make sure each one is given the utmost care and attention.
