Luxury. Noun. A state of great comfort or elegance. Here at iLite Lighting, we consider luxury lighting to mean lighting sculptures that have been crafted by expert craftsmen, each one they create infused with their expertise, passion, and love, emotions instilled into every rare and beautiful material they use.
There’s no denying that when it comes it luxury lighting, it’s a very subjective topic. As with opinion and tastes across any area of design, it is individual to each and every one of us. It’s for this reason that a lot of high end luxury lighting brands will offer a completely bespoke service.
Allowing you to choose everything about your design, from the number of bulbs, through their finish, to the size of the product, and more besides, every aspect of a design can be crafted to suit you. Customisable to the exact requirements of the client, you won’t find anything that meets your lighting needs more exactly than a bespoke design.
