About Us

Lighting Design in Cornwall

We are independent lighting designers offering a flexible and holistic lighting design service to private residential clients in Cornwall and throughout Southwest England.

The majority of our work is for new build structures but we are also experienced in major upgrades and renovations of classical properties and will ensure that our designs are sympathetic to the project in hand and reflect the aspirations of our clients.

Our Lighting Design consultancy service is based on an hourly or daily rate but we will quote for the initial work commissioned so you have a clear understanding of the costs involved.

We do not supply the lighting but give full and clear details to you so plans and specifications can be passed on to your electrical contractor for purchase and implementation.

Although based in Cornwall we will carry out projects throughout the UK and further afield.  Please contact us for further information or to chat through your specific requirements.

Lighting designer Claire Pendarves originally trained and worked as an interior designer.
It was whilst working on a design project in Switzerland that a renowned lighting designer was called in and Claire’s career changed.
She realised that above all, it is the lighting that brings soul to an interior. Get the lighting right and the whole ambience of a building can change. Get it wrong and the most luxurious interior can jar.

One stroke of genius was to employ the services of a lighting designer early on in the project. Claire Pendarves devised a plan that would solve some tricky dilemmas, such as how to light a high-beamed ceiling, and so ensure that the finished rooms would look slick and professional.

Lighting is a crucial element of home design that people often overlook. Getting an expert to help us did add to the total cost of the renovation, but the investment has more than paid off. We couldn’t have achieved any of this without Claire.
