Online Bespoke Handmade Lighting Store
One Foot Taller design and produce a range of contemporary elegant pendant lighting, floor and wall lamps as well as ceiling lights for private and commercial interiors worldwide. Our signature pieces, Ethel and Etheletta are available as long drop (suspension) lights and are perfect for large spaces.
Our head designer, Katty Barac, is our sole creator, producing one-off items for clients in Europe, the USA and Asia. Our designer believes in longevity, simplicity and sustainability in all her designs. Katty strives to incorporate these elements into all her lighting and believes that is why her designs are bespoke. Her formal but sculptural, nearly regular forms creates modern elliptical lighting, globe pendants and geometric lights which also have a human touch.
We have previously won awards for our work and have won the Peugeot Design Award as well as receiving the Millennium Product Status for our Chasm Chair. Furthermore, various pieces of our work have featured in exhibitions around Scotland and London as well as in interior homes and restaurants throughout the UK and Europe – notably our contemporary ceiling long drop lighting.
Lighting Bespoke to You
Here at One Foot Taller, we offer a made-to-measure light configuration service as well as special order lights. If you have an idea about a custom design light or lamp shade then we are more than happy to have a chat with you and see if our head designer can create a bespoke light that will help enhance your interior. To find out more about this service then check out our ‘Special’ page.
We work closely with all our clients this allows us to offer our expertise on style as well as the made-to-measure configuration to make sure each lighting fixture fits every space perfectly. We have worked alongside interior designers to help finish off personal and business settings, these included working on The Botanic House Hotel and Bar Soba and Restaurant. In addition to these we have also been contracted out by businesses to create striking pieces for them, we have worked with Edinburgh University and Glasgow Science Centre on different contemporary lighting commissions.
Our range of lighting from glass pendant to long drop stairwell lighting is perfect for any commercial property as it can be used as a statement or a setting piece. We offer our made-to-measure configuration to our commercial clients, as well as custom made design, although this service can take longer due to the nature of the product – this would be discussed with you before any new commissions is undertaken.
Our interior and exterior lights are made to order; therefore we don’t keep any stock holdings. We do try to manufacture both residential and commercial orders as quickly as possible, but with them being bespoke handmade pieces the lead times can vary. For explanations and expected delivery timeframes please check out our FAQs below.
