When a serious car collector asked us to do the lighting design for his beautiful new home we were, of course, delighted. The house is now finished and furnished with beautiful antique chandeliers and contemporary designer lighting. However, much as he is delighted with all the lighting, and the house looks stunning, his bespoke chandelier clearly gave him the most pleasure of all his lovely lights!
His passion is for Jags, so all the parts in this simple chandelier are Jaguar car parts. As the parts arrived at Fritz Fryer it is fair to say there was a rather excessive amount of excitement in the workshop, especially as one of our restorers, Rich, is a bit of a petrol head himself. After plenty of excited discussion, drawing and measuring, the headlamps and beautiful walnut steering wheel where put to new use and now shed light on walls instead of roads.
