'From inspiration to illumination' - the process of creating a new decorative light fitting




All Day

Free Event


Christopher Wray, one of the UK's oldest and best known names in lighting retail are working with Charles Levi to showcase a new range of classic fittings with a contemporary twist and present the process behind developing a new design from the conceptual idea through to the finished product.

Christopher Wray will be showcasing an exclusive new range of classic fittings with a contemporary twist designed by Charles Levi - a London based designer who has been developing his own decorative lighting fittings since 1989.

This range has been designed especially for Christopher Wray with the designer working alongside our experienced in-house team to create bespoke pieces that will not be available anywhere else.

Charles will be available within our showroom throughout the day on the 16th September to give visitors a fascinating insight into the process that goes into creating a decorative lighting fitting with examples of the original drawings from when it was an initial conceptual idea, through to the stages of developing a prototype model and finally to the finished product - the journey from inspiration to illumination.

Christopher Wray has been established since 1964 and in this time has created a trusted brand. Noted throughout not only the UK, but all over the world for innovative and imaginative lighting and furniture.

A successful foundation was built on the supply of antique oil lamps, from this grew the manufacture of traditional style lamps, as well as the design of innovative and imaginative modern lighting. This served as a catalyst for the growth of the company and more recently the brand has brought its distinctive touch to the provision of furniture, offering a complete interior experience. Our years of knowledge affords us the ability to provide a reliable and customer centric service.
