A Beautiful British Brand – Original BTC
One of our newest brands is the unique British Lighting manufacture, Original BTC. They pride themselves on their authenticity and attention to detail, capturing the industrial style which remains at the heart of the collection. Original BTC has a passion for using raw materials and creating a harmony of form and material.To celebrate being British here are five reasons Original BTC believe you should buy British.
Manufactures have control over supply chain
When products are both designed and manufactured in Britain, the supply chain is often shorter and more transparent. This means that customers can work directly with the brand and receive a more personalised experience.
Companies based in Britain can offer a lot of flexibility. British companies are able at ease to offer bespoke services as they can make adjustments and changes directly.
As British brands both design and manufacture their products in Britain it means the products have shorter distances to travel. It also means the company can be quick to work to the demand of a market and don’t necessarily have to manufacture in huge volumes.
Easy to ensure quality
British manufacturers have access to their products throughout the entire production lifecycle. This means an ease to undertaking regular quality checks ensuring each and every item is finished to the same high standard and any issue are picked up and resolved quickly.
Supporting British economy
Buying British helps to support the country’s economy. Buying British means you are supporting employment and entrepreneurs within Britain, and helping to boost innovation and maintain traditions.
As you can see, there are many reasons to choose British-made products. As well as the obvious environmental benefits, buying British gives you the sense of helping to support the economy and helping it to thrive.

Our Favourite New Products This Month!
Designed by Joana Bover the beautiful SIAM lamp has an oriental feel with its clean yet stylish hand-wrapped ribbon design available in red, white or cream. The lamp can be grouped in number of formations in turn creating an elegant impact of suspended light.
The Luceplan Mesh is a suspension lamp offering multiple lighting scenarios for personalisation and functional performance. The lightweight, almost transparent structure is composed of a network of metal cables with the LED’s positioned at their intersections .The structure of the lamp allows freedom in the control of the lights: the intensity can be adjusted, and its possible to choose which sections to illuminate.
Original BTC Titian
The titian is an original 1940s design, frequently seen in factories and industrial units of the period. There is also an option for the titian with an etched glass visor which helps prevent glare and provides a softer, more diffused light.
The Prandina Zerodieci Suspension S7 is a suspended lamp perfect for diffused lighting. With a matt white painted ceiling rose the lamp offers a sleek and simple yet stylish design, perfect for the home. With an opal white blown glass diffuser the lamp is available with an Eco or LED option.
Lampe Gras Nº411 Floor
The Lampe Gras Nº411 floor lamp is perfect to use for reading and rooms suited for directed light. The lamp is created with wonderful proportions and an adjustable design which thanks to its double-elbow allows it to be rotated twice through 340°.
Santa&Cole Arne Domas
The Santa & Cole Arne Domas Hanging Lamp is both urban and elegant featuring a LED spotlight, designed in house by the Santa & Cole team. It is the expression of cutting-edge technology in its most natural form and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use with an IP 55 rating.
Artuo Alvarez Temp Vivace
The Arturo Alvarez Tempo Vivace is a pendant lamp made with painted stainless steel mesh. This material, crafted in fine pleats, forms two overlapped layers that create two different soft flowing effects.
Anglepoise Original 1227 Giant Brass Wall
Sophisticated brass detailing on the fittings and fasteners, an engraved brass fork block logo badge and a carefully chosen five-shade colour palette makes the Original 1227 Giant Brass wall mounted lamp a serious investment piece. The articulated arm provides total flexibility, allowing smaller spaces to enjoy some over-sized chic.
Vibia Mayfair Floor/ Suspension
The Mayfair lamps are a Diego Fortunato design. The entire Mayfair collection incorporates LED lighting and comes in various finishes: Green or Orange, Graphite or White and Gold or Copper.
Wästberg W151 Extra Large Pendant
The Wästberg W151 Extra Large Pendant is based on the most basic of geometrical shapes, the cone. The lamp comes in three variations: the tall and narrow, the conical and the coolie. All three are super-sized, pushing the limits of manufactured spun aluminium, yet it will still fit through a normal doorframe.
With these new products comes more so keep your eyes peeled for the latest designs!
