New Lighting Showroom opens in Minehead
The Lighting Company has proudly been serving homes and businesses with lights for over thirty years and we are one of the largest independent retailers in the UK. We’re not going to rest on our laurels though, we enjoy moving forward with new ideas and innovative technologies that keep us as our customers first and only choice for buying lighting.
We’ve adopted a whole new approach to buying lights in our brand new showroom. We have introduced an innovative method of a seamless integration of high street and online shopping whilst browsing through our inspirational displays. We have knowledgeable and friendly consultants who are on hand to help or the information is just a mere tap away…
We want to provide the technology to help today’s shoppers, so we have included a QR code and an NFC code on our labels which takes you straight to that product on our website which gives you all of the information that you need to know, similar products and other matching items in the range.
So, what about packing for a day away at the seaside to come and choose your new lights? We have such a broad range that we’re sure to be able to match you with your perfect light whilst you soak in the splendour of our showroom, with it’s flair for artistic presentation during your assimilation of the experiential visit.
We’ve now opened our doors following a successful preview evening to which local business owners were invited. We received many positive comments!
Where can you find the Lighting Company?
The Lighting Company showroom is located in Units 1-3, 22 The Avenue, Minehead TA24 5AX.
So, what can you expect to see when you come to our beautiful new shop? Let us walk you through (virtually) the aisles of our showroom! Let’s start off with a warm welcome…
The showroom was originally three separate units which have been merged to form a large space of approximately 3000 square feet.
Easy fit ceiling shades are fantastic for changing the look in a room without the need of an electrician. These simply fix to existing E27 lampholders and come with a shade reducer ring which will allow them them to fit on bayonet cap suspensions too. They come in many finishes and materials which ensure that you can get the perfect look for your home with ease.
Floor and table lamps have been used as additional ambient lights for many years. They bring a flexibility to your lighting plan as you can alter the light levels with ease to achieve your perfect ambience by choosing which ones to turn on. They also act as ornamentation, helping to bring your style statement together in a room.
In this section, we display a selection of popular ranges that work in both modern and traditional homes. We understand that many designs benefit from having a matching range, so here you can see them all together to decide which ones will work best in your room.
Spot lights have been a firm favourite for many years. They’re ideal for providing task lighting and are easy to position to ensure that you have the light in the perfect location. They are versatile and easy to clean so we often see these utilised in bathrooms and kitchens. Once again, we’ve got our favourite matching ranges on display for you to see your ideal style and colour combinations.
In the bathroom section, you will see a range of both traditional and modern lighting that is Ingress Protection rated IP44 so they are safe to use in bathrooms, wet rooms, en-suites and cloakrooms. We show you that you don’t have to compromise on your sense of style whilst still ensuring safety, they all effortlessly combine great aesthetics with functionality.
Here you can see some more traditional styles of bathroom lights on the left, where the right takes on a more modern vibe, including bathroom chandeliers for a real sense of luxury!
Exterior lights also require the same IP44 rating as bathroom lights, to protect the light from rain. In our outside lighting section, there’s a great selection of wall lights, bollard lights, post lights and porch lights that are ideal to welcome you home on those dark nights. We even have some from our Somerset range that feature multicoloured glass for something that’s a little different, or perhaps an Art Deco inspired Tiffany outdoor light? There’s loads to choose from.
So, into the middle room, we have gifts, ornaments and accessories, along with a selection of great value lights that pack a punch in any interior design whilst keeping the purse strings happy.
The accessories and gifts have been lovingly chosen to add a luxury touch to your interior, or as presents that will delight your family and friends.
If you’re looking for a statement light, we’ve got plenty to whet your appetite! Gold is hugely on trend at the moment and we love the combination of contemporary LEDs, the gold finish and modern forms – they’re simply beautiful.
Tiffany lights were originally designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany who designed and made stained glass windows. Frustrated by the amount of wasted coloured glass, he began to make lampshades using off-cuts. The design was welcomed immediately and is still revered today. We have many handmade reproduction Tiffany lights to choose from including popular Art Deco and Art Nouveau designs.
We have a great selection of heritage style lights. Priding themselves on authenticity not only of the design, but of the time honoured materials and production techniques, these quality ranges rival genuine antiques with the benefit of more modern technology. Ideal for period and traditional homes, they’re also great at adding a sense of history to more modern homes.
If you’re wowed by designer labels and luxury goods, or perhaps just love to support British made items, this section will be your ideal destination. We have quirky and fun lights from Innermost, luxury hand painted table lamps from Jenny Worrall, and traditionally styled lighting ranges from David Hunt Lighting. All feature fantastic attention to detail and are quality items set to stand the test of time.
And for an added splash of luxury, we also have tactile throws and comfy cushions to complete the look in your home…
Oh – and we also have a little art gallery for those art lovers amonst us! Yes, we really do have it all! So next time you need a splash of inspiration for lighting or home interiors, you know where to come! We look forward to welcoming you to our physical or online store very soon.
