Celebrity interior designer Linda Barker opens Elstead Lighting's new showroom
INTERIOR designer and television personality Linda Barker opened Elstead Lighting’s brand new showroom.
And judging from her reaction, Linda was impressed with the 9,000 square foot front of house showroom, in Mill Lane, Alton.
It is open on two floors with more than 1,500 indoor and outdoor fittings, including over 150 table lamps on display, offering a wide choice of styles to accessorise homes.
Established in 1967, Elstead Lighting is a family run business which, as the name suggests, originated in the village of Elstead, in Surrey, before moving to Alton in the early 1970s.
Now it employ almost 100 staff across three sites.
Managing director Jonathan Lucas said: “It’s an exciting time to be in this business right now.
“As a team of people we have all worked enormously hard, often against the tide, and we can now see many growing signs of opportunity ahead which is reassuring for us all after what has been a truly challenging past four years.
“It is especially exciting to see products, hand-made in Alton, appearing in showrooms as far and wide as Japan, India, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Russia and Kenya, to name but a few parts of the world, where we are being recognised.
“All of the recent investments are the culmination and belief many of us have in British manufacturing and thanks to the support of both local and national business support mechanisms, we see a strong future ahead.”
Now that Elstead has partnered with four large American brands, including Feiss, Hinkley, Quoizel and Flambeau, it has over 300 new products in the 2013 collection.
This includes beautiful chandeliers, wall lights, as well as floor and table lamps.
And there are many more in the pipeline for launch in the spring of 2014.
In addition, new to the showroom, is a small collection of classic dining tables and occasional furniture, beautiful designer mirrors, quality outdoor garden furniture and Haddonstone garden ornaments.
