Fall in love at first light

Iconic, imposing and utterly fintastic, see why the J&G Coughtrie Swan Neck Wall light has swept across the UK since 1960.

A head for lights

The sweeping swan neck makes the SW-10 perfect for casting light downwards to illuminate doorways, windows, or outbuildings. Alternatively, place in an indoor setting to create an intimate atmosphere, whether above a table in a cosy restaurant, or to cast light along a gloomy passageway. The world is your lobster!

Cast to Last

Each part of the SW-10’s robust casing is hand cast from solid aluminium, fitting together as part of an upgradable modular system. Rugged, and rain resistant, the SW-10 is built to last, with a tip top performance, even in the most inclement British weather!

Fintastic Forms

The sweeping fins of the SW-10’s elegant case, and the gentle curve of the Swan neck wall bracket, all contribute to the SW-10’s iconic form. Meanwhile, the hand-poured, pressed and blown diffuser delivers a gentle, and even spread of light, for an unrivalled performance.

Finished to your fancy

The SW-10 can be finished with several different options, to suit your flights of fancy, from chip-resistant paint in a range of colours, to an industrial aluminium finish which simply has a clear, protective lacquer applied to achieve that raw, manufactured industrial look, creating an unique and distinct finish each time. With our bespoke finishing service, you’ll also be able to specify a unique RAL colour, for any powder coating.


Swell to meet you

The SW collection is the epitome of flexibility. Mounted it can be supplied to wall or corner mount and adorned with reflector or Cage. Alternatively, it can be hung as a pendant from cord or chain. Select matching or complimentary pieces from the range, to build a harmonious lighting project.

The devil is in the details

The SW-10 range has been put together with the kind of attention to detail that we’re famous for at J & G Coughtrie, with a style that’s both timeless and enduring. Beauty, and substance. That’s our bag.


Sweeping Swan Neck

The hand bent S shaped bracket elegantly directs light away from the wall.

Cast Wall Mount

Our cast aluminium wall mount keeps the SW-10 securely fixed with only 2 screws, whatever the weather throws at it.

Fluted Fins

The iconic fluted fins on the light casing add elegant strength, and protection.

Domed Screw Mounts

Three equally spaced mounting points allow modular accessories to be fixed to the SW, both adapting its look, and extending its functionality.

Porcelain Lamp Holder

Your SW can be supplied with a Bayonet Cap or Edison Screw lamp holder, to fit an E27 or B22 bulb.

Wellglass Diffuser

Each SW comes with a thick hand pressed and blown Wellglass diffuser that keeps your light watertight, and gently diffuses the light emitted.
