At the heart of any brand is a big idea: Simple. Memorable. True.

For David Hunt Lighting, based in the Cotswolds and known for their inherent natural beauty and heritage of craftspeople. The big idea is; elegant craftsmanship, made in the Cotswolds. A simple but powerful expression of what they believe in. Elegant craftsmanship is the focus of everything they do. Helping them to make the right choices; it is a part of their character. Invisible but vital.

David Hunt Lighting has been based in the Cotswolds for the last 100 years, they are one of the UK’s longest surviving established lighting manufacturers. Built on the legacy of a family business dating from the 1890’s, this iconic heritage has been captured in the imaginative spirit shared by all the team. Best known for designing and manufacturing wholly original products, their design team generate a stream of new ideas incorporating different textures, colours and finishing techniques. The results are a range of innovative, unusual and exciting products that cross the design spectrum from classical to contemporary and offer a vast choice for all interior styles.

The team have developed their manufacturing processes over many years and each item is handmade and finished using traditional hand finishing techniques. Product Manager, Stephen Hillman, has been a part of the David Hunt Lighting team for over twenty years and works closely with Creative Director, Hollie Moreland to bring ideas, designs and drawings to life. Together, with the help of their manufacturing team, they are able to re-create the illusion of almost any finish on any surface such as hand stitched leather or the majestic Antler. Over recent decades, lighting design has become more and more intriguing. For David Hunt Lighting, Hollie starts the design process with sketches or water colours inspired by shapes, textures and finishes. Taking inspiration from her Cotswold surroundings, Hollie will set to work creating the foundations of a prototype for Stephen to develop and the final reveal is as exciting as the very first stages of inspiration. Working with robust materials such as resin, brass and metal; the possibilities behind their design concepts are endless. New collections are launched annually and each year is an experiment where fresh trends will be introduced and exciting new finishes will be explored.

Each lighting piece designed by David Hunt Lighting conceives the imagination and enthusiasm carried by the workshop team each day. The visual identity of David Hunt Lighting is what uniquely and distinctively sets it apart from other lighting brands. This mark has a longevity to withstand time, along with the simplicity to effortlessly compliment their proud Cotswold heritage.
