Step inside The Lamp Factory London - ten years of creating beautiful bespoke lamps

The Lamp Factory, London is a real success story, Russell Sidney, Managing Director started the business in 2008 in the modest surroundings of his back yard, following a twenty-five-year career producing high quality lamps for a leading manufacturer. Ten years on and the business is thriving.

Today Russell leads an expert team from his factory in Croydon, South London. The factory is a hive of activity with four dedicated workshops; a brass machining workshop, a woodwork shop, metal finishing workshop, and an electrical wiring workshop, with 16 highly skilled craftsmen producing lamps of the highest quality. The team has expanded over the years with the success of the business and undertakes work requiring true skill and proficiency in the art of making lamps.

At the start of 2018 The Lamp Factory, London acquired a showroom at the world-renowned Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour (112 Design Centre East, Chelsea Harbour) to showcase their ever-increasing portfolio of lamp designs. Although clients are actively encouraged to visit the factory, the showroom at Chelsea Harbour provides clients with an easy to get to central London location and a meeting point right at the heart of the interior design world.

“It’s a passion, the materials, the skill, the tools, the artistry and the designing, I love lamps!”

Russell Sidney, Managing Director comments:

‘When I started the business ten years ago my focus was on creating the beautiful bespoke lamps from the highest quality materials. Today it’s still the same yet I have a few more skilled hands to help get things done! For me it’s a passion, the materials, the skill, the tools, the artistry and the designing, I love lamps!

From day one, the Lamp Factory’s problem-solving skills have been central to the success of the business. Lamp Factory are regularly asked for custom designs incorporating a range of materials, from the simplest of briefs, often from a basic sketch.

Russell is a man who thoroughly enjoys his work, a ‘hands on’ man who thrives on producing new and interesting designs, whilst very focused on the detail of each lamp. Russell is involved with every aspect of the manufacturing process from the client brief to polishing each lamp before it leaves the factory.

Russell continues:

“I believe we are especially good at problem solving here at The Lamp Factory, we have clients old and new, who come to us to seek our advice and guidance on how to create a lamp for a specific requirement or wanting to make a statement in their home or their interior designs”
