Art Deco Lighting & Lamps

Welcome to our online catalogue


About 30 Something!

We specialise in Art Deco lamps & lighting. We are a family run business established in 2005. We offer an eclectic mix of original period lighting, handmade bespoke luminaries and industrial lighting. All pieces are either restored to a very high standard, sourced from our selected lighting partners or are handmade in our own workshop. Our lighting range is made from quality British brass components. Most of our lighting will accept either standard or energy saving light bulbs. Fittings can be altered to suit your exact requirements. Please note that a small surcharge may be made for alterations to our standard range of products.  

All lamps and light fittings are tested for electrical safety in line with the key principles of the Lighting Industry Associationís Code of Practice. Full details of our test and quality control procedures are available upon request. All our electrical components are manufactured in the UK and confirm to British Standards. A copy of our test equipment annual calibration certificate is available to download here.

We carry Public and Product Liability insurance of £5million. A copy of our policy schedule is available upon request.

Our light fixtures are rated IP20 and are therefore not suitable for bathrooms. Fittings should always be installed by a qualified electrician.

We work with interior designers, lamp restorers, antique dealers, television production companies and private clients. Samples are available for large projects. Bespoke lighting is our forte and we have many satisfied clients. Our E book brochure can be downloaded here

Quotes From John Ruskin

"There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man's lawful prey."

Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort."

Colour Accuracy

Whilst every effort is made to provide accurate images of our products, we cannot guarantee the colour accuracy owing to differences in computer screens and screen resolution settings. Please note that the aged brass finish can vary in colour.

Glass Light Shades

Please note that all our glass lamp shades are individually hand blown. As such there may be slight size variations, air bubbles and minor flaws. We aim to match shades as closely as possible for multiple purchases, but cannot guarantee an absolute match.

All our lighting fittings are hand made and finished to order and as such we cannot accept returns unless the item is damaged or materially mis-described. We are happy to answer any questions prior to ordering. Special order items are also non returnable.

In accordance with the legislation, a refund will be processed within 14 working days following receipt of the returned goods. 
Provided that you have taken reasonable care of the goods and they are received in the same condition as when dispatched, then the refund will be issued using the same method of payment, as when the order was placed.
