Factorylux cage light shades were chosen by Tamsin Gordon for her south-east London kitchen extension. The project was featured in the September issue of Good Housekeeping Magazine.
The cage light shades were specified for the home of Tamsin and her husband James in Peckham, London. An original long narrow kitchen was transformed as part of the project which filled the side return and extended into the garden. The architecture and design work was by Ar’chic architects and the extension creates a wrap around space which fully opens onto the private garden. The kitchen is now the base for Tamsin’s catering business Salt & Honey.
The palette of materials was chosen to create an industrial aesthetic and features polished concrete worktops, cement floor, matt lacquered joinery, and oxidised steel kitchen doors. The lighting above the concrete island worktop comes from a row of five black Factorylux large balloon light bulbs cages. The cages are made entirely in the UK – jigged, welded and finished – for exceptional quality and durability.
In addition to black powder coating, the cages are available in five other powder coated colours and five metallic finishes including the opulent nine carat gold plate and uncompromisingly industrial rusted steel. The cage shades in Tamsin’s kitchen are fitted with the classic Factorylux pear-shaped filament light bulbs.
In addition to being available as components, the cage light shades can be configured as complete ready to install cage lights using the revolutionary Factorylux cage pendant light configurator. Start your design by choosing a cage from four designs in a range of colours and finishes, and then a lamp holder and ceiling hardware from the many options. Finally, choose lighting cable from over 60 colour and finish options.
When you are happy with the design, the cage pendant lights are hand built at our production HQ in Yorkshire and tested and certified to BS EN 60598. All the Made For You lighting is dispatched for next working day delivery, readied for safe and simple installation with fittings and wiring instructions and all necessary fixtures and fittings.
