Will has always loved over scaled objects and his lighting collection is based on stunning originals, which sit beautifully in his own home. It has also taken him a good few years to restore his Georgian family house and make sure that every fixture and fitting is spot-on. This task includes installing historically appropriate and light fittings.
How to fit an English country house into a London townhouse is a dilemma that faced Will and his wife Charlotte Freemantle. On this journey they decided that as well as reproducing original country-house lighting, they should introduce smaller fittings still created with rigorous historical accuracy, but that would fit comfortably in period houses throughout the land.
