Introducing Laura Ashley
Laura Ashley is an English lifestyle brand and one of the largest known and reputable lifestyle brands not only in the UK but around the world. With over 65 years of design excellence its no wonder that they are one of our top selling brands. They have built themselves a very respectable reputation for delivering high quality products with beautiful designs and room changing functionality. Here at Cp Lighting & Interiors you can shop from their 2021 collection of interior lighting, featuring a wide variety of pendants, chandeliers, table lamps, wall lights and much more.
The history of Laura Ashley dates back to 1953 when Laura and Bernard Ashley began hand printing fabric at their kitchen table in Pimlico, England after Laura had been inspired by a Women’s Institute Exhibition at the V&A museum. They spent £10 on wood for a screen, fabric and dyes and together began hand crafting one of the most signature lifestyle brands world wide.
They weren’t without their hardships however, as the business had to face rough times during their rise to fame. This included huge environmental damage to goods and stock due to a river bursting its banks, and disappointing turnovers during multiple location changes. Despite this they were able to see a very successful future for their brand early on and were determined to pursue it. This resulted in some truly iconic moments for the business over the years, such as being awarded the Queens award for export achievement in 1977. The brand was also chosen to design multiple rooms in the US Embassy in 1982 and Bernard was knighted by the Queen of England in 1987.
Laura Ashley is one of the greatest examples of determination and hard work paying off, and the brand has truly earned their status as giants in the industry. The brand continues to be a staple in the fashion and interior lighting/interior design industry despite both Laura and Bernard passing away, and will continue to live up to the expectations they once set for their brand for a long time to come.
Some Of Our Favourite Laura Ashley Products
As one of the limited lighting suppliers of Laura Ashley in the UK, we not only have knowledge and experience with their products but also actively promote the brand daily. We carry the entire 2021 lighting collection, which includes a selection of over 130 ceiling lights, table lamps, wall lights, floor lights and much more in a variety of some of their most iconic finishes. While all stunning in their own unique way, here are a few of our most popular and timeless products that seem to stand out amongst the rest.
The Vienna Range
The Vienna range is one of the larger Laura Ashley collections and is extremely popular among our customers. It includes a range of glamorous pendants, flush lights, wall lights and more all featuring with crystal glass casings and offered in a beautiful polished chrome finish or timeless antique brass finish. The Vienna polished chrome semi flush light is one of our biggest sellers and we are proud to promote such a luxury fitting.
The Harrington Range
The Harrington range offers a collection of beautifully crafted ceiling pendants along with a single wall light, all offered in both classic polished chrome and antique brass finishes. They possess an industrial style appearance with the lantern style frame and metal candle-holder bulb case, all of which really adds to the older industrial aesthetic that the Harrington is known for. The top products in this range are the five and three light ceiling pendants, both of which feature an adjustable chain.
The Fernhurst Range
Another one of our most well known and frequent purchases are from the Fernhurst collection. The collection is very small compared to some of the others, being limited to only three lights, but don’t let this fool you as this you can’t help but fall in love with this range. There are two semi flush ceiling lights and one wall light which all feature a gorgeous polished chrome and crystal bar shade that simply oozes Art Deco style. The way the light bounces off the crystal in these lights is absolutely stunning, and these lights are perfect for lower ceilings and smaller rooms. This collection is a perfect staple for Laura Ashley as it encapsulates everything the brand is about: beauty, delicacy and style.
