SAY HELLO TO HECTOR FINCH LIGHTING

Updated: Mar 30, 2021

We are really excited to introduce you to our new lighting line, Hector Finch. We have samples in the showroom we can share via video presentation and tear sheets to help you with your projects. Here’s a little background….

Hector Finch started the eponymous lighting company in the mid 1980’s and first traded from a small antique centre in Preston, Lancashire. With his father, a general antiques dealer, they travelled widely across the North of England, buying stock from private houses, auctions and dealers. Hector’s natural talent for engineering and how things were made enabled him to find the right specialist restorers for antique fittings to be brought back to life. Some of these would pass through the hands of metal craftsmen, glass blowers, metal finishers and challenge the most able wirers before they were presented, fully restored, to his customers.

 


As the new millennium approached Hector’s wife, Emma, joined the business and the company started to design and manufacture a signature collection of fixtures, primarily for the design trade.

The range has grown with a design aesthetic of clean lines, correct proportions and a less-is-more philosophy and we fuse crisp, precision metalwork by British artisans with glass work sourced from mainland Europe. We pride ourselves in supporting specialist craft makers for our Italian glass and ceramic ranges and are passionate about maintaining relationships with traditional, family owned businesses. We believe in sustainability based on the simple premise that if something is well made and beautiful it will have a long and useful life and to this end believe that by sourcing local materials and components we are supporting our environment, community and economy. We continue to follow our aspiration to provide a product that sells across the world because it satisfies a demand for high quality, well designed lighting that will give pleasure to future generations.
