When visiting a hotel the general public would take in the lighting along with the overall interior design. The lighting however, plays a huge part in creating the right feel and can sometimes tie together the overall theme of the hotel. When staying at a hotel, customers will usually do a variety of everyday things; sleeping, eating, drinking, socialising, relaxing and even exercising. The lighting in these different areas needs to reflect the appropriate mood, giving lighting designers many different nuances to work with. They also have to work to the constraints of the brief and as we see here, some clients set some pretty tough briefs.


Lighting a hotel is a big job and lighting can really enhance the interior design and create ambience. We look at 3 very different projects to see the huge scope that is available when working on a hotel.


The Lazy Cow Nestled in the English market town of


Warwick the Lazy Cow is a boutique hotel and restaurant, with a twist. To play on the name of the hotel the lighting designers Chantelle Lighting have incorporated old milk bottles in to the lighting fixtures. In the bar and restaurant hundreds of traditional milk bottles hang from the ceiling. Anthony Holly, Managing director of Chantelle Lighting said: “When we were approached by the designer to get involved in this project we jumped at the opportunity and straight away began to source milk bottles which I can clearly remember being delivered to our door each day when I was young.”


The bottles were sourced from a local company and lamp holders were attached to the neck of each bottle and dropped inside with a filament bulb to create the light fitting. Each bottle was then fitted on to a custom made track.


In each bedroom a chandelier has been made out of the same milk bottles to keep the theme running throughout the design. Chantelle Lighting worked on this quirky project alongside interior designers Tibbatts Abel.


Pullman Hotel The first Pullman branded hotel has been launched in the heart of Central London. This 4 star hotel commissioned interior designers Proof Consultancy Ltd to work along side lighting designers Chelsom. The brief set to Chelsom was to supply bespoke lighting throughout the guestrooms and public areas to further enhance the design aesthetics.


Stylish lighting was created specially for the public areas with contemporary lines and shapes at the forefront of the design. In the guestrooms striped shades are beautifully complemented by the brushed nickel finish of all the fittings, including the LED reading lights from the latest Chelsom collection.


In the public areas eye‐catching centrepieces are made up of laser cut bronze pendants with off
