A friend of Mr J’s got in touch recently about purchasing one of our Spider Lights but for a very unusual room, a conservatory.  The main issue with a conservatory, especially a wooden framed one, is where exactly to hang the pendants as well as how to fit the ceiling rose onto such a small beam. The other part of our friend’s brief was for these pendants (3) to be able to be put at 2 different heights for different occasions.

As we always say at Mr J “Where there’s a will, there’s a way!”  That week we had just taken shipment of some brand new copper lampholders, which are right on trend of the moment, so after showing the client them he immediately fell in love, these had to be included in the design.

We next sourced copper hooks (to adjust the height of the pendants) that were small enough to fit onto the wooden beams. This left only the ceiling rose issue to be resolved. You see if the rose was larger than the thin beam it would overhang, allowing dust or flies to drop in over time and fill it up!

So after a quick chat about the look of the ceiling rose we went on CAD to draw it up and make a bespoke ceiling rose on our 3D Printer. Once printed the rose was sanded, primed and painted copper to match the other components.

Then it was the simple task of wiring it up and turning on the lights for the big reveal!

As you can see the pendants turned out beautifully and everyone involved was very happy!

If you have a tricky situation, or a bespoke project get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.
