Lighting for traditional Tudor homes from Bespoke Lights, the specialists in light fittings for period homes.Think of Tudor lights and you probably imagine forged iron ceiling lights and dark wooden wall lights but Tudor lighting was so much more than this. Tudor chandeliers for the more well off would have been decorated with scrolls, fleur de lys, and other Gothic motifs and of course the Tudor rose. Decorative Tudor hall lanterns often featured coloured glass panels inspired by the beautiful stained windows in the churches.
It is hard for us to imagine a time before electric lighting but in Tudor times people had to rely on firelight and candles to provide the necessary light. As glass was expensive windows were small with leaded glass panes in a characteristic criss-cross pattern resulting in dark interiors with little natural daylight. This leaded glass and heavy mullioned look is one of the most recognisable elements of Tudor architecture and often used today for Tudor style outdoor lights and lanterns.
To recreate the feel of Tudor lighting today choose light fittings in wrought iron or dark bronze - try to avoid metals that are too shiny and steer clear of any dangling crystal. Working with our manufacturing partners we are able to offer a bespoke made to measure lighting service for our customers.
