Chad Lighting created custom wall lights for a new restaurant area of Bailbrook House.
Angela Amesbury specified some products from Chad Lightings standard range for the bedrooms of Bailbrook House. She then requested help with lighting a restaurant to be developed in the cellar area. The new wall lights needed to be in keeping with this cellar notable for its stone vaulted ceiling.
Something quite unique and special was needed for this space that had so much character already. A meeting on site sparked ideas and highlighted some of the constraints. It was not possible to chase wiring into the walls so the light fittings had to reach down to the floor. A visit to Warwick Castle gave Angela an idea of what she was looking for a form of torchiere.
The team at Chad Lighting set to work adapting the concept, adding refinements such as a sandblasted glass cylinder to diffuse light at eye level but allow direct light upwards to highlight the vaulted ceiling. A CAD model of the structure was generated to help visualise the design and to aid rapid production of the metal elements of the torch basket.
The result has been a wall light that takes its place as a key feature of the dining room, a room that is attractive and with a strong personality in keeping with its transformation from an old cellar.
