Simplicity of design and choice of finish, including weathered brass and copper, polished aluminum, galvanized cast iron and shot blasted cast iron make Davey lights equally suited to traditional or contemporary schemes. From castings and spinning to specialist engineering work, all components are made by hand by small specialist UK suppliers according to centuries old tradition. Long standing relationships mean bespoke orders or customization of existing lights can be made upon request without the need for high volume production.
Founded in 1885 in Londons West India Docks, Davey & Cos marine lighting and hardware graced many of historys best-known vessels. As Britains maritime heyday faded, Davey & Co used the skills honed manufacturing deck lights, saloon and navigation lanterns to launch Davey Lighting. Daveys hand-made fixtures were snapped up by the world of architecture and design, taking pride of place in locations such as the Savoy Hotel. Their industrial aesthetic and enduring appeal means Davey lights can still be spotted in many of the capitals best interiors including Shoreditch House, J Sheekey and Jamie Olivers 15. Original BTC founder Peter Bowles acquired the company in 2010.The full collection is available to view at Davey Lightings new Design Centre Chelsea Harbour showroom.
