Casting a legacy in lighting, since 1939

Founded in 1939, by a pair of innovative and determined Glaswegian brothers, our original industrial lighting can still be found, working reliably, across the city. Robust, gritty, and sustainably made, we’re proud that our product still cast a rich legacy in lighting, spanning over eight decades.

Discover our collections

Each of our four key collections is based on original J & G Coughtrie vintage designs, reimagined, and refined for a modern audience. Bulkheads, Swan Neck wall lights, and Pendants are varied across the collections in type, colour, style, and mounting. There really is something for everyone - everyone who appreciates quality, and style.

All-weather compact, oval bulkhead lighting.

Originally made in the 1950s, and still proudly made in the UK, the SY-6 has been faithfully recreated from original engineering drawings. Fully waterproof, and corrosion resistant, LED and bulb variants are available, along with a corded table lamp. Create the ideal ambience for your soiree.

Large oval bulkhead, certified for extreme environments

First made in the 1950s, and faithfully reproduced for a modern audience, our large oval bulkheads are fully waterproof, and corrosion resistant - ideal for extreme environments, from marine settings to public houses. Despite its robust construction, this product creates a mood like no other, and is instantly recognisable for its classic, geometric shape - a beauty that also wears a practical hat.

Overhead fluted light with Swan Neck.

Designed in the 1960s, our bestselling Swan neck overhead light adorns a range of heritage sites across the UK, along with a Hollywood film set, or two. Fully waterproof, and corrosion resistant, this timeless beauty is also robust, and practical.

Industrial swan neck globe light, XL.

Launched in 1960, the refined silhouette, and extra-large size of our industrial swan neck globe light make it instantly recognisable. Oft found illuminating country estates, or atop vintage lamp posts, it stands the test of time - fully waterproof, and corrosion resistant.
