Light fittings supplied

The complete decorative lighting scheme

As an experienced Mitchells & Butlers lighting supplier, we have worked with the Group and its appointed designers for many years developing lighting schemes for many of its brands including Browns, Toby Carvery, Nicholson's and All Bar One. 

Located in Great Portland Street, The Albany is a busy venue for both tourists and corporate guests. For its 2015 refurbishment designed by Pembrook Design, we supplied the complete decorative lighting scheme. Along the bar we supplied five pendants with ribbed glass shades and metal chains in an antique finish.

Unusually, but very effectively, the interior designer used wall lights in various styles instead of traditional picture lights to highlight the artwork on the walls. The cage wall lights in an antique finish feature filament lamps and generate a soft and concentrated illumination. Another wall light features clear glass lanterns with metal trim in a brass finish. 

We also organised the procurement and delivery of fittings from other suppliers including the 8-light smoked glass chandeliers. This enabled the designer to focus on the creative side of the project with the knowledge that the fittings would all be delivered as and when required.
