We started out small, back in 1985, when our founder came across a corner shop just outside of Coventry that was available to rent. He thought he'd try his luck selling electrical supplies. There was no grand plan. He knew a thing or two about electricals and figured that the location of the store – close to three of the UK's main motorways – would make it easy for the region's tradesmen to get to. This hunch turned out to be right, and seven years after starting he extended the business into a large, vacant showroom next door. He also decided to focus exclusively on light fittings and fixtures, which had become an important part of the business – not just for trade buyers, but for members of the public, too.
Prestigious lighting brands from around the world
Supported by his wife and various other members of the family, our founder set about establishing KES's new showroom as an Aladdin's cave of luxury lights, where people from all over the country could come to see fittings from prestigious designer brands that, in many cases, weren't to be found anywhere else in the UK. In the late-1990s, KES's global connections meant that the business was well placed to benefit from the growth of e-commerce and the internet. The company quickly established a strong online presence selling high end lights to discerning customers all over the world. In 2002, the business expanded again, this time bringing a large warehouse next door into the mix so that a wider stock base could be readily accessed.
Today, KES stocks more than 5,000 lighting products and features lights from such prestigious names as Troy and Hudson Valley – as well as British brands such as Lekki Lighting and Regent. Clients include everyone from individual homeowners looking for something special for their living room or garden, to international developers and interior designers.
A demand for luxury homewares
Most recently, we added a new string to our bow when, in 2019, KES responded to customer demand by adding a range of exquisite homewares to our collection. This is a fast-growing area for the business, with many buyers eager to complement their lighting purchases with other luxurious eye-catching items for the home. We often wonder what it is that has enabled us to succeed over the past 30-odd years, and the thing we keep coming back to is: our people. There are other websites that sell lights, but there aren't too many where you can pick up a phone and ask a detailed question and get just the right information you need.
Our showroom is another significant asset, and enables people from many miles around UK to visit and reaffirm intent to buy, or for traditionalists to browse the extensive range of high quality indoor and outdoor lighting on display. Lighting is an incredibly personal choice, and the right light can elevate a room to stratospheric levels. That's why we continue to scour the Earth for the best new fittings and have a team of 15 experts on hand to help people find exactly the right lights and homewares for them. Whether it be a crystal chandelier, standout wall light, designer lamp or a branded drop pendant, we have all types of light fittings for your home.
KES Lighting & Home can offer guidance on everything from the type of brands best suited to different projects/budgets to the intricacies of international wiring – we even offer a full lighting design service if needed. For clients looking for something utterly unique, we can sometimes have a light made bespoke by one of our partner brands, too. We’ve served many customers in this capacity before; with statement hallway chandeliers and pendants, as well as truly unique kitchen island lighting. We offer free UK delivery on items that are in stock (free, if the purchase price is over £99) and we also ship all over the world. Please enjoy browsing our website, check out our FAQs, and get in touch if you have any queries. Our phone lines are manned from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, and during normal working hours our live chatbox (connecting you to a real person!) is available, too.
