Lighting Design Consultants

We are a small lighting design consultancy based in Cornwall creating fully transparent lighting schemes for new-build projects and renovations.

We mark up lighting plans and supply fully detailed specifications to enable you to purchase products independently. We also offer an online design service.

Why use Illumina Lighting for your design project?


Lighting Designer Claire Pendarves originally trained and worked as an interior designer before progressing into lighting design. She owned a lighting and interiors showroom for a number of years and has carried out numerous lighting projects throughout the UK and overseas.


We don’t supply the lighting but give you full details of the recommended lights and where these can be purchased. As we have no affiliation to any particular manufacturer you can rest assured that we have no ulterior motive in recommending one product over another.


Lighting design is far more than just planning functional lighting. It needs to weave in aesthetics, energy efficiency and the individual design aspirations of our clients. We listen to you, learn about your vision for your property and help you on the journey to realise your dreams.

Most of our projects are new-builds but we are also experienced in renovations of classical buildings where we sympathetically weave in contemporary lighting techniques.

We quote for each project once we have seen the architectural plans and then any further site meetings or alterations, as the work progresses, will be charged at an hourly rate to be agreed at the outset. 

We also offer an online lighting design service. Further details can be seen on our sister website:
