2018!

Welcome to the new year everybody!  We all had a fantastic break and wish our customers a relaxing start to 2018.

Our big news to start the year is the shipment of our own range of LED task lighting.  It has arrived, and is now available to purchase.  The range includes floor lamps, desk lamps, and wall lamps in a gorgeous range of colours including metallics, and of course classic black.

We have hand chosen this range because of the attention to detail in design and manufacture.  Please come in and have a look and let us know what you think!

PS ... Lizzy had a baby girl!

We have farewelled Kimberley and we are now welcoming Nic and Jade.  Nic is our newest showroom team member who has a background in retail and a keen eye for design.  Come in and say hi! 

Jade is starting out in the back office as Lizzy leaves us to start her maternity leave (stay tuned for baby news!)  Jade will be helping out with accounts, website and social media.

It's Goodbye!

21 October 2017

In sad news, our very lovely Kimberley has left the building.  She has been snapped up by the hospitality industry once again (and why wouldn't they?)

We are going to miss her terribly and so are our customers (we can't yet bring ourselves to take her picture off the team page).  She has been a sparkly, super-valuable team member over the last three years and will be very hard to replace, but we of course wish her all the very best with her new gig!  And this now means we are on the look out for a new team member with lighting experience ... if you know of anyone!

Thank you!

31 August 2017

We have just had our best month ever at Urban Lighting!  We are so thrilled with how our little lighting business has grown over the last three years and we have our wonderful customers to thank.  So thank you one and all for supporting us! We hope you are as happy with us as we are with you.

Fluorescent Recycling

We are very pleased to now offer fluorescent tube and compact lamp recycling as part of our commitment to a more sustainable world. 
Lighting is moving towards long life LED fittings which are more energy efficient and do not contain the contaminants found in fluorescent tubes.
Fluorescent lights contain glass and mercury which can both be recycled.  And of course, putting mercury into landfill is just not a good idea for the planet or for our health.  So any tubes you have lying around wondering what to do with, drop them into us!

Website Update

14 March 2017

We are always trying to make our website more user friendly, and so, have adjusted our categories to reflect the design you're going for rather than what the light is manufactured from.  For instance: Classic | Traditional, Industrial | Rustic.

We have also made our lamps section easier to find and navigate around.

Let us know what you think, and of course, if there's anything else you'd like to see on our website, or if you have any suggestions to make navigation easier, feel free to drop us a line.

Britt is flying off this weekend to scout around some design shows for new lighting products, so stay tuned for new arrivals over the next few weeks.

Christmas Ordering

7 November 2016

It's that time of year again folks!  If you're planning a little spruce up of your lighting before Christmas, you'll need to hurry - a number of our international lighting suppliers are calling last orders this week.

Local suppliers will still deliver up until the week before, but things do get very busy, so try to come and see us soon.

SØKTAS

23 August 2016

Brand new to Urban Lighting and exclusively stocked by us.  This beautiful new brand is the creative brainchild of Oliver Höglund.  

Oliver's father and grandfather both learned their craft at Kosta Boda in Sweden, and these impressive credentials have been passed on to Oliver and Søktas.

Each piece is blown by hand, so no two lights are the same, creating a beautiful quality, individual light each time.

Call in to our showroom to view the Volt Pendant, or have a look on our website.

Decor + Design Update

26 July 2016

Britt and Robert have returned from Melbourne with a fabulous haul of product on order.

Their impression from the offerings at the show was a move to more organic, timber products and more 'beautiful' lighting styles.  We've seen this trend emerging over the last few months as people are enjoying layering their living spaces with more interesting pieces, giving more warmth and character to their homes.

Have a look here to see what will be coming into the showroom over the next few weeks.
