Original BTC retro-styled Paxo pendant lights


We feature plenty of design classics, but not too many modern light fittings with a classic look. Why? Well, there aren't a great deal of well-made original lights with character out there. Unless you check out Original BTC.

This London-based company is owned and run by Peter Bowles (not the vintage actor I hasten to add) who also designs all the lights on offer. In general, the designs (which range from the fashionable to the functional) are a modern take on a classic look, with an attention to detail and price tags that aren't out of general reach.

The metallic Paxo pendant above is typical, styled on the industrial lights of the early 20th century and available in a choice of plain or colourful finishes. Complete with cord and fitting it retails for £103. Check out the website for the full range.
