The expansion of the fabulous award-winning restaurant, The Bookshop - highly acclaimed for its Sunday roasts and a reputation for using quality, locally sourced ingredients, has put Hereford on the food map.
Their loyal foodie followers have enabled a rapid growth in just six years.
Advocates in reducing their impact on the planet, and their genuine, considered approach to supporting quality local suppliers (even having a dedicated butchery department on site), they have eliminated single use plastics and use renewable energy sources. All of which reinforce their passion for modern, ethical eating.
When they planned their interior fit-out for the newly renovated restaurant, they stuck to their philosophy of using local and through (I’m name-dropping) a mutual friend and fab print designer, Sunny Todd approached us to provide the lighting scheme. The brief was to achieve a clean Industrial look and provide the 'wow' factor, big on impact as well as ambient....Rule of Tum Ltd Director Dorian, loves the smoked glass in the Fritz Fryer collection, so we just had to include this in his restaurant scheme.
Complementing the amazing 13-way clear glass Hereford Cluster with Bronze and Celtic gold flex, hang the white Hereford Globe Pendant lights.
Mixing up the types of glass has a achieved a strong, textural look within the lighting scheme without losing coherence.
Above their banquette seating area hang the Skinny Ribbed Wye Valley Pendant lights, these are a perfect fit for cafes and restaurants - allowing plenty of directional light downwards and very classy to look at.
Adding even more interest within this exciting space hang our fully customisable Grafton Globe Lanterns in Smoked Glass with a retro Black and White dogtooth Overbraid.
We are always thrilled when approached to work on commercial projects and presented with such freedom, The Bookshop provided us a great opportunity to showcase that we do so well - hand blown, bespoke, contemporary, designer lighting!
