Introducing Glow Lighting

Glow Lighting

In 2015 Emily Butterill established Glow Lighting, she wanted to design and manufacture traditional lighting with a contemporary twist. 

Emily had grown up surrounded by lights and lighting.  Her late father ran a successful British lighting manufacturing business. Her husband has his own commercial lighting company.   With over 20 years in the industry her knowledge of lumens, watts, light levels and the effect and impact they can make is extensive. 

Emily has harnessed traditional glass blowing and metal spinning techniques but brings with it a contemporary styling that suits present day interiors. The entire collection is designed by Emily, her grasp of colour and design enables her to bring out the intrinsic beauty of the materials, which are brought to life in 13 shades of exceptional quality glass. This unique lighting can be hung in singles or clusters

Making all the lights by hand means every element is fully customisable. Emily can offer a choice in size and colour of glass, metal finish plus cable length and colour. This enables Glow Lighting to manufacture traditional lighting that is truly individual.

Nobody Puts Unidrain in the Corner

Unless it’s the new Reframe Collection Corner Shelf

Unidrain is the world’s leading drain manufacturer and nobody puts Unidrain in the corner!  Unless of course it is the new Reframe corner shelf; the latest addition to the Award Winning Reframe Collection created by Danish designer Kenneth Waaben.

Stylish bathroom accessories are now a key part of the Unidrain offering. The ethos behind all the products, within the Reframe Collection, is a desire to improve and reframe the existing; the innovative new corner shelf is no exception.

Most bathroom shelving is linear because corners; in reality tend to not be an exact 90 degree angle.   The beauty of the new corner shelf is not only visual but practical as it adapts to the shape of the corner in which it is placed.  The shelf has an anti-slip barrier to ensure shower essentials do not slip when the shelf is wet, whilst discreet grooves enable excess water to drain away easily.

The shelf is created from a reinforced steel plate and is available in five different colour options; copper, brass, brushed stainless steel, hand polished stainless steel and black.
