It’s difficult to find another designer brand that offers so much in the way of authenticity, history and exquisite craftsmanship. Founded in London by Arthur Christopher Davey in 1885, Davey Lighting started out by manufacturing contemporary lights for ships and dockyards, serving an impressive clientele including the MOD. It’s believed that some of their early creations illuminated decks on the Titanic, which really adds to the high quality aesthetic we now see in this brand’s contemporary designs.
After outgrowing their small premises on Leadenhall Street in London, Davey Lighting expanded to its flagship address at West India Dock Road in London where they traded for over 100 years. During this time, the company diversified and from designing for maritime vessels, it embarked on a new venture producing lighting for commercial and domestic interiors in addition to lighting for large-scale architectural projects and building exteriors.
From the ceilings of hotels like the Savoy in London to ceilings in your home or favourite bistro, Davey Lighting’s designs are suitable for a range of interiors and have a distinct style that really sets them apart from other designers. As an iconic brand and highly respected UK manufacturer, Davey Lighting is well known in the industry for its use of premium materials and incredibly, makes all of its components by hand according to time-honoured traditions.
Owning a designer light from Davey Lighting is like owning a piece of history. Some of the company’s atmospheric designs date back to the early 20th century, the difference is that the lights are now produced to the latest standards in modern engineering, ready to be part of your own lifetime. Bold cast iron, vintage brass and copper and gleaming aluminium are some of the fine materials you can expect to see in the contemporary Davey Lighting collection of interior and exterior lights. Sandblasted bronze and galvanised steel are amongst the other materials used by this brand, helping to ensure that each piece has an industrial flavour with an urban edge that’s suitable for breathing life into older properties and adding a vintage style to contemporary buildings.
