Modern Contemporary Lighting

Hello and Happy New Year to you all!

We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and that you are all fully recovered from the seasons festivities and ready for take on the year ahead!

Today we're talking about a brand new addition to our Fritz Fryer Collection of modern and contemporary lights - The Wellington Ribbed Glass Pendant

The Wellington is a great example of the versitility of our collection. It can be paired with an LED squirrel cage bulb and brown twistflex for a traditional look with energy saving with elegance or try and black or red twistflex for a real contemporary and modern feel. As with all of our Fritz Fryer Collection lights the colours and finishes can be combined in any way to create just the look you require. The glass is hand-blown in the UK exclusively for us and the fittings are all handmade in our workshop right here in Herefordshire.

The Wellington is a ribbed teardrop shape and the design is in some ways a hybrid of two of our existing glass shades, the Upton Glass Shade and the Hereford Globe. The ribbed glass means that the light from the bulb inside is refracted through the glass, creating a subtle pattern on the ceiling or surrounding walls. 

The Wellington Ribbed Glass Shade take its name from Wellington, a small village located towards the North of Herefordshire between the city of Hereford and Leominster. Boasting a typical country way of life, the village has a church, pub, local shop and successful village football team. The surrounding countryside can be seen in all its glory from a woodland high up on a hill that gives great views of the rest of the county.

Fritz Fryer Collection lights are made using high quality, components and twistflex pendant sets. Our designer lights are handmade in our workshop in Herefordshire, UK where we endeavour to produce functional, traditional and contemporary lighting for country cottages and period homes as well as contemporary apartments and modern builds.
