The Queen’s official birthday usually falls on the 2nd week of June, as April (her actual birthday) is just a bit too chilly for a celebration outdoors here in the UK! This year it will be on June 8th, traditionally coinciding with the wonderful parade and Royal family gathering of Trooping the Colour. The Queen will celebrate the occasion with The Birthday Honours, presenting awards and medals to individuals and granting national and dynastic orders to the exceptional recipients.
To honour the Queen’s birthday, Fritz Fryer have put together a list of exquisite lights that deserve to be celebrated!
To mark the Queen’s 93rd Birthday let us draw your attention to this formidable Silver plate Double Rise and Fall with Horse Bow bar handle by GEC.
In no particular order, we would like to honour the most popular contemporary lights in our collection, The Hereford globe and the Hereford cluster Chandelier. The Hereford family is a gorgeous globe, it’s versatility enables it to be used in many schemes and sits beautifully beside an antique light installation.
The very first major bespoke project, a Ski Chandelier is also honoured in this years Fritz Fryer list of superb light installations. This phenomenal project can be viewed on our project page here.
Also trooping the colour in our dazzling parade is the outstanding restoration project at Cliffe Castle museum. Working alongside the curator Daru Rooke, our workshop team spent a year sensitively restoring stunning antique lights. The level of craftsmanship our on site team possess deserves the highest honour here at Fritz Fryer Lighting.
Let us also celebrate a very exciting commercial project featuring our Hereford globe pendant lights. The Crown in Chiswick has recently undergone a face lift, from an old Police station to a Contemporary pub. Under the care of Zaffera London, Liana Braune bought the station into the 21st century with a beautiful bright scheme using our Hereford pendants over the gorgeous Art Deco bar. Have a look in more detail at this jewel of a project here.
