Spotlight: Dar Lighting’s Ray


Based in Oxfordshire, Dar Lighting has over thirty years of experience. This marks the company out as one of the leading suppliers of innovative and high quality luxury lighting products. They create to suit your need, be that domestic or commercial. Whatever you seek, this brand has three decades worth of proof that they can source the right solution for you.

Dar designs vary across the lighting spectrum. They create everything from large statement piece fittings and traditional chandeliers through to ranges of table and floor lamps. Wall lights, pendant lights, decorative lighting, outdoor lighting, lampshades, and more are also made to match.

It doesn’t end there. The brand also offer an extensive range of lighting accessories. This includes ceiling suspensions, hooks, chains, LEDs, decorative filament lamps, and a whole lot more to boot.

The Ray range from Dar Lighting has a great feel, entirely characteristic in its self portrayal. Combining antique brass metal work and lamp holders with matt black detail and clear glass shades, it’s a beautiful way to showcase decorative light bulbs. This is a design that proves itself to be equally at home in a traditional, vintage, modern, or contemporary setting.

One of Dar Lighting’s celebrated graphics design team, Ben Mobbs, names the single pendant edition of the Ray design as one of his most favourite of the brand’s designs. Discussing his choice, he goes on to portray his appreciation of the design, which comes with one metre of cable so that it can be adjusted to suit your luxury lighting needs, in detail.

“As a lover of industrial design aesthetic, I find Ray particularly beautiful,” he begins.” The antique brass and matt black finish is stark yet stylish; coupled with a simple conical glass shade and subtle detailing it is a great example of understated and confident execution. To finish the look, Ray pairs perfectly with Dar’s vintage LED lamp range, shown with the ‘Rustika’ lamp in this instance.”
