Ashby Lighting was established in 2014 by Martin and Rachel Ashby. Initially trading as Ashby Interiors we sold a broad range of home antiques and aviation antiques. Soon it became apparent that lighting was our passion and in 2023 we rebranded as Ashby Lighting.
Martin is a Chartered Engineer with a background in the aerospace industry. With a keen interest in Art Nouveau, the Arts and Crafts Movement and a strong creative flair, Martin is busy restoring antique lighting whilst also designing and manufacturing our own hand crafted Ashby Collection. The emphasis is always on producing the highest quality and providing excellent customer service
Rachel is the first point of contact for our customers and ensures that everything runs smoothly from first enquiry to dispatch of orders. We know that buying the perfect light can be a little daunting so Rachel is happy to discuss your project and work with you to find the perfect lights. Our aim is to ensure that buying a light from Ashby Lighting is an enjoyable and memorable experience not just a purchase.
Lorna has worked with us for six years and assists in all aspects of our business from photography and loading new stock onto the website to carefully packing and shipping our lighting. No two days are the same at Ashby Lighting and her flexible approach and sense of humour are indispensable.
Our workshop and showroom is based in Melbourne, South Derbyshire and you are more than welcome to visit by appointment to discuss your lighting project.
