Holloways of Ludlow

Ampersand Hotel

Thursday 3rd April 2014

Holloways of Ludlow were proud to be appointed as one of the primary lighting suppliers for this prestigious hotel opening in Kensington, London.

For the luxurious bedrooms at the Ampersand we supplied what is considered a true design classic, the Signal desk lamp from Jielde.

For other parts of the hotel the ever popular Jielde Loft 6 arm floor lamp was also used, shown below in seductive gloss black.

In the bar a more industrial look was required and here we used a long line of well-glass fittings that would normally be used outside. Used here in the bar they give a rugged look and highlight the character of the exposed brickwork.

Tapas Revolution - Westfield

Monday 6th February 2012

I was wandering around Westfield (as you do) and spotted these lights at Tapas Revolution. The industrial lighting look has been gathering pace for many years now as has the move to bare bulbs, particularly the old style bulbs with the intricate glowing filaments.

Shown above are industrial style well-glass pendants. Hung in rows with their stripped down style and chunky chain these lights create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Practical too as they are robust and weather proof. Inside the bare filament light bulbs add further visual interest.

Tom's Kitchen, Chelsea

Monday 6th February 2012

Holloways of Ludlow worked closely with designers Concorde BGW to develop the lighting scheme for Tom's Kitchen in Chelsea - Tom Aiken's friendly and buzzing restaurant in Cale Street, Chelsea. We love the trestle tables and simply fabulous, honest food. Each ingredient is sourced from small farmers and the traditionally British dishes are simply fantastic. A great place to meet friends and have a relaxed, fun evening.

In the informal restaurant where diners often share tables with other groups, the industrial pendants work perfectly against the backdrop of white brick tiles and exposed brickwork. Above the bar (pictured above and below) is a row of polished aluminium Titan pendants. Also on the walls are Victorian factory windows, hand-polished back to the bare metal and glazed with mirror glass. Holloways of Ludlow supply designers and customers with mirrors of all shapes and sizes.

In one of the separate reception rooms, that can be booked for larger parties, a slightly more formal scheme is used. Here, opal glass pendants popularly known as 'school pendants' hang elegantly above the tables.

Over the upstairs bar hangs a pair of domed pewter pendants.
