About Us

Our Story

The idea of Lumen hearkens back to countless late-night chats about cool-looking lights. The ideas turned into “Let’s see if we can make ‘em”.

A couple of our early creations ended up in the homes of many of our long-suffering friends. The organiser of the Tierlantynkies market saw one of our lights in a friend’s house and we were invited to exhibit at the next market.

Our Story

With less than a month to prepare, we finalised a couple of designs we really like, dreamed up a name and created a logo for the fledgling enterprise.

With quite unexpected success, our business is booming and quite litterally growing at the speed of light.

As we come to terms with the many aspects of procurement and the administration of both national and international distribution, we ceaselessly return to the source of it all; We relentlessly continue to invent and create great-looking designs and to share our concepts with our many passionate customers and supporters.

Lumen’s fututre is very bright indeed.

The whole purchase process was simple and fast. I found the exact lights I wanted. Nicholas was friendly and very helpful. My beautiful lights arrived today and I am so pleased with the way that it lights up our lounge and bedroom.

I first saw Lumen's lights at the Homemakers expo. The team responded wonderfully when I contacted them to assist with the design and planning of the lights and bathroom accessories for our new home. Lumen has done a great job and our result looks amazing.

I want to take the time to let you know what excellent products you offer. The simple elegance and attention to detail is amazing. Every light fixture works perfectly and looks fantastic.

We bought a whole herd of horses - some small, some tall, and a pair of giraffes. They look beautiful. The purchase and delivery process was simple and painless.
