Our Story

At Northern Lights, we’re not just about crafting lighting; we’re about weaving stories of endless possibilities in your creative design journey. By seamlessly blending cutting-edge design, traditional artisan craftsmanship, and the latest lighting tech, we’ve created a space where your visions come to life effortlessly.



We started as a small family business, creating various products from stained glass with a handful of skilled artisans.



We undertook the purchase of our 38,000 sq ft manufacturing facility in Derbyshire. This essential and exciting move set the business up for increased scalability and future growth.



Having supplied many hospitality projects by 2003, we gained preferred supplier status for a leading hospitality chain, rolling out our lighting solutions on a global scale.



We further invested in state-of-the-art machinery, tooling, and paint facilities to strengthen our capabilities. This investment also enhanced our client offering, providing more choices and improving the overall quality and customization options available.



We became part of the NLC Group of Companies Ltd with enhanced buying & sourcing power, and a proven history in developing lighting companies across the UK, Europe, Middle East and the Far East.



By 2023, we had gained Manufacturer Top 100 status for two years in a row, recognising our commitment to pushing boundaries in British manufacturing.



We launched our new branding and website to the market, reinforcing our story and commitment. We also invested in cutting-edge machinery & enhanced our product line with new Made to Order and Ready to Ship collections.


Established in Chesterfield in 1987, Northern Lights started as a family business designing and hand-crafting products from stained glass with a small team of skilled artisans. We’ve come a long way since then, establishing ourselves as a global leader in bespoke lighting manufacture, servicing luxury hospitality, residential and marine projects over the past 35+ years.


In the hands of our design team and master artisans we create exquisite lighting installations and timeless collections. With design & manufacture under one roof in our 38,000 square foot facility, we exercise unprecedented control and consistent quality. We've also gained Manufacturer Top 100 status two years running.

Our focus on metal fabrication, glass techniques, and a range of finishes opens up a world of creative possibilities, pushing the boundaries of manufacturing to deliver truly unique lighting.


Our distinctiveness lies in our people and in-house capabilities. Fuelled by a team culture that embraces every challenge, we leverage decades of extensive knowledge and expertise, consistently exceeding expectations for our clients. With in-house design and manufacturing, our comprehensive approach enables us to offer expert advice from concept to delivery. Collaboration remains at the heart of what we do. We’re privileged to work with some of the largest global hospitality brands, and the industry’s elite designers, procurement teams, architects and contractors.
