William Sugg & Co. is the UK’s oldest lighting company, founded in 1837 by William Sugg. The company began as a gas lighting manufacturer and quickly became a leader in the field, supplying gas lamps to cities and towns all over the UK. In 1849, Sugg invented the “Argand burner”, a more efficient and brighter gas burner that revolutionised the lighting industry.

In the early 20th century, Sugg began to manufacture electric lighting equipment as well. The company also developed a number of innovative gas and electric lighting products, including the “Sugg mirror head” and the “Sugg flambeaux”.

Sugg’s lamps can be found all over the world, and the company has a long history of working on prestigious projects. In 1851, Sugg supplied the gas lamps for the Great Exhibition in London. In 1908, the company supplied the electric lamps for the coronation of King Edward VII. And in 1953, Sugg supplied the gas lamps for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

With have reclaimed a number of these original lights and they are available in original condition or can be upcycled and rewired, you can bring a touch of this timeless elegance to your own space. Imagine your home, patio, or driveway illuminated by the same classic British charm. As you step outside, you’re greeted by the soft, inviting glow that has graced the streets of London and beyond.
