Northern Lights

Annual 2022/23

Welcome to World-Class Bespoke Lighting

From understated luxe to the avant-garde, Northern Lights has spent over 35 years creating bespoke luxury lighting for a variety of sectors across a range of impressive projects. By blending cutting edge design, manufacturing & lighting technology with traditional artisan craftsmanship, Northern Lights brings to life unlimited visions across endless design schemes, allowing interior designers to transform a variety of spaces effortlessly and creatively.

With particular expertise in glass techniques and metal fabrication, along with an extensive range of finishes, the designs utilise the creative capabilities and push the boundaries of manufacturing to create some of the most iconic luxury bespoke lighting on a global scale.

The intention of the annual is to showcase the very best of our bespoke lighting capabilities. We work with some of the most renowned interior designers on awardwinning projects that are always at the forefront of conversations.

A word from Donna Bruce

Since 1987, the foundations of Northern Lights have been underpinned by our UK manufacturing capabilities. During 35 years of trading the business has gone through many changes and none more significant than now.

Throughout the pandemic we have all had to take different approaches - not just to how we conduct our businesses but how we view the world around us. We had to learn to generate positives from negatives, to look within at ways to thrive and build resilience, and to focus our efforts to ensure we emerged stronger on the other side. Our customers became not only interested in the quality we are able to produce as a British manufacturer, but also how we achieve it and the environmental impact.

Northern Lights has a story to tell. We are not just another lighting supplier; we are creators, visionaries and craftspeople. We are fortunate enough to continually collaborate with some of the largest brands and most recognised interior designers in the world.

Our focus for 2023 is on strengthening our brand presence in Hospitality and Luxury Residential markets, and our reach has already started to extend into cruise ships and super yachts. It’s an incredibly exciting time for the business.

We continue to pride ourselves on our manufacturing and service excellence. This includes developing luxury signature products, working with our customers on iconic bespoke lighting solutions, and investing further into our already significant facility - all whilst continuing to evolve our sustainable initiative.

Reflecting on an incredible year of growth, our Managing Director looks ahead to what the future holds for Northern Lights.
“This is the least boring job in the world - it’s a passion, because what we’re doing is so versatile and eclectic.”
Donna Bruce Managing Director

The World According to Northern Lights

Chateau Denmark

35 Years of Bespoke Finishing

Northern Lights’ skilled artisans have spent the past thirty-five years developing metal finishes to apply to our bespoke lighting fixtures and accessories.

This breadth of experience has enabled Northern Lights to offer the most comprehensive range of metal finishes in the industry, continuously being added to through experimentation and innovation. Our deep understanding allows us to achieve naturally organic patterns in our finishes, meaning our lights will always carry an air of individuality.
