Dowsing & Reynolds We are on online, design-led lighting and hardware company specialising in products that you won’t find on the high street. From beautiful and bespoke lighting products, such as vintage light bulbs, fabric lighting cable, ceiling lights to designer light switches, dimmers and plug sockets. James Dowsing-Reynolds, founder and Director set up the business after sourcing vintage style light bulbs for a project he was working on. After buying a few too many he decided to sell the spare bulbs on eBay. They sold fantastically well, and before he knew it a business was born - and the rest they say, is history. James is now fully immersed in lights and is the one who researches and sources new product ranges, making sure they meet the highest of standards. We’re very much about industrial style with a few Scandinavian influences thrown into the mix. Our varied range of beautiful and bespoke lighting products means you can buy or create your own lights to suit the interior you are designing. both architects and interior designers, noting their fantastic quality, great price and uniqueness. All key factors when sourcing the best products for interior projects. In late 2015 we launched a range of hardware products that included toggle switches, dimmers and plug sockets. James first set about designing the range after moving house and was unable to find any that he loved for his new home. He struggled to source any switches or sockets that were not only well designed, different from the usual sea of white plastic, but also affordable too. Affordability is often key, especially if you’re doing the whole interior, not just a socket or two. Due to the popularity of our ranges and customer feedback, we’ve recently added new products to our collection, including drawer knobs and door handles, cooker switches and spiral LED bulbs to name a few. We are now developing new designs and products to extend the range even further, which will be available in the coming months. Last year we exhibited at 100% Design at Olympia, London. Our stand featured a range of products, including our lights and hardware. It proved a big hit with Visit our website to shop our full range of products, or if you have a project that we can help with, email us at or call 0113 8199985
