Information

Inspiralight designs and manufactures quality lamps of immense stature and character and is able to offer various levels of customisation from a range of established designs through to a full bespoke commission based service making the lamp truly unique and special to you.

All products are made to the highest quality using a blend of modern and traditional materials, brought together with the aid of some of the latest manufacturing processes to create desirable functional decorative pieces. In designing these products all load bearing components have been scaled and strengthened accordingly not only to meet the expectation of assured integrity and quality but also to ensure that the proportionate appearance is maintained and aesthetic appeal maximised. The custom adjustable light fittings are made in various column lengths and provide a sturdy mounting on which to secure large shades, whilst enabling use of standard light bulbs or for best overall effect, new large diameter low energy globe bulbs. Edison screw ES27 fittings are used as standard but BC fittings can be installed if preferred. These fittings are available in various finishes.

All ceramic bodied lamps are handmade using high strength frost proof clay. Typically they have a wall thickness of around 2cm; consequently these lamps are extremely heavy. A whole spectrum of decorative finishes are possible from bisque ('as fired'), painted, full or part glazed through to various metalized options. Please see the dedicated Ceramic information page for more detailed information.

All shades frames are unique to us and made to order allowing us to tailor the shade to match the application and offer a vast range of fabric and print finishes. Please see the dedicated lamp shade information page for more detailed information.

Many of the decorative lamp components are hand made and therefore pattern, colour, glaze and size cannot be guaranteed and may vary from that of the sample or image seen prior to manufacture.

All products are CE marked and as such are manufactured, inspected and tested in accordance with the Low Voltage Directive and relevant European standards. Independent third party testing can be arranged if required, checks and tests conducted and items like mains leads/plugs changed to meet the requirements for use in other countries around the globe. In some instances a small charge will be payable for these services. 
 

Shipping
Where we can we aim to deliver and install the lamps ourselves, in this way we can ensure that your product reaches you in perfect condition and can remove any unwanted packaging material. However during busy times or for overseas shipments this is not always possible. In such instances the heavier items will arrive in protective wooden crates and the more delicate shades in large double boxed cardboard cartons.
 
 Delivery
All items are made to order, lead times vary depending on the degree of customisation and complexity. As an example typical lead times are 6 to 8wks from specification and placement of order for custom finishing of established lamp and shade component forms.
The approx. weight of the lamps and lamp shades shown on this website can be found on the detailed product pages.
 
Access
It is vital to ensure that you have good access to the intended location for your lamp or lamps, particularly so for the heavier ceramic bodied lamps. Various shades including some of the empires are sized to fit through a standard large 76cm (30”) wide door opening, but many are not and will require double door access. Similarly the ceramic pottery lamps are heavy requiring trolley access and a two man lift if they are to be placed on to a raised plinth, column or sturdy table.
 
Pricing
Due to the nature of our service and the high level of customisation offered it is not possible for us to state prices on the website. Each product is individually priced based on the options taken up and the complexities of the finishes required, allowing us to offer the best value for money no matter how large, small, simple or complex your request. Please call for a general discussion when we’ll be happy to provide a guide price followed by a written quotation against a firm specification. For large scale projects we are happy to visit and provide a specialist commission based service.
