Made in Sheffield: Spun steel factory pendant lights by Old School Electric

Traditional craftsmanship that's perfect for adding a retro twist to your living space – the spun steel factory pendant lights by Old School Electric.

They are something of a design classic, originally used in factories and workshops from Victorian times, but without the elaborate decoration you perhaps expect from Victoriana. This was lighting built for function rather than form, although ironically, it's perhaps the form that is one of the key selling points today.

The other is that these are still made in a factory in Sheffield from spun steel with a colourful enamelled finish. Perfect for a 20th century interior, even better for an industrial-themed setting or conversion.

You can find out more about the company here, although you can't buy them direct. However, you can buy them from Liberty online, which has three colour options for £155 each.
