Historical lighting expertise
The UK particularly places great importance on conservation, restoration and regeneration of city centres and areas of historical importance. As world leaders in heritage lighting, with experience since 1837, William Sugg & Co. Ltd. created a large number of the original fittings that are now considered historically significant. Many of London’s iconic landmarks are brought to life by historical luminaires which remain an important part of their identity today.
Our specialist team of expert craftspeople is perfectly placed to carry out the highest standards of restorative works on a wide range of fittings and have delighted in refurbishing some of the world’s most important and recognisable luminaires, in the UK, and overseas.
