William Estridge, brilliant lighting.


At William Estridge it is our mission to provide you with lighting that is full of character, individuality and brilliance.


Whether you are lighting your home, workspace, bar, restaurant, hotel, or coffee shop, we have a unique and characterful range to provide you with the mood, theme or statement lighting you require to make you stand out from the crowd.

Our lighting is sourced from a variety of British, Italian, and other European manufacturers and are made to the highest of standards.  Many are hand finished, even to your specific requirements.  In our ever expanding range, we choose every fitting with care and detail, so that you can order with confidence.

We are located in Hertfordshire, where all of our ideas and creativity are put into practice, resulting in this website with lighting to excite and inspire.

All of the Navigator range are IP64 or IP44 rated (water and dust protection) and designed to be used outdoors.   They are manufactured in solid brass, with a choice of finishes. The raw brass finish is for use outdoors even in demanding coastal areas as it is very resistant to corrosion and ages gracefully.  We have sped up the ageing process with the antique brass fittings, giving them a unique aged finish.  They all use E27 (large screw) bulbs, apart from the mini portholes, which use G9 bulbs.  This range is also for indoor use, where a warming industrial or rustic effect is desired.

The Factory Lads are industrial pendant light fittings, reproduced to look like a vintage factory light.  The shade comes in a choice of four finishes, brushed brass, polished copper, matt black and polished nickel.  But our real secret is in the choice of coloured braided flexes, ceiling roses, and lamp holders.  And if you really can’t find what you are looking for, contact us for a custom made – to your colour scheme – light fitting that will tick all your boxes.  Factory lads are made to order at our Hertfordshire factory, with delivery in 2-3 working days.

Our porcelain range of light fittings is what William Estridge is all about.  We love these lights and there didn’t seem to be a great choice of porcelain out there when we started our research, which seemed strange, as porcelain is a great finish.  At first we were only going to go for the retro range, but the beauty and individuality of the other ranges, like the Lecco and Alba, meant that we had to add these too.   As these lights are handmade to order in Italy, the lead time on these is 4-6 weeks, but we know that you won’t mind as you will have unique light fittings that will delight you for years to come!
