Jamb has built up a worldwide reputation for sourcing superior antique and reproduction chimneypieces and lighting, along with dealing in the finest 18th and 19th century English country–house furniture. Admirer Michael Smith sums up Jamb owner Will Fisher’s style well saying says he’s ‘someone whose aesthetic is so unbelievably English with an eye for patina and detail but put together in a clean fresh way.’
Will has always loved over scaled objects and his lighting collection is based on stunning originals, which sit beautifully in his own home. It has also taken him a good few years to restore his Georgian family house and make sure that every fixture and fitting is spot-on. This task includes installing historically appropriate and light fittings.
How to fit an English country house into a London townhouse is a dilemma that faced Will and his wife Charlotte Freemantle. On this journey they decided that as well as reproducing original country-house lighting, they should introduce smaller fittings still created with rigorous historical accuracy, but that would fit comfortably in period houses throughout the land.
The globe has become the signature shape of Jamb lighting and desired for its timeless feel and exceptional beauty. So welcome a new range of simplified globes that have both a functional and minimalist aesthetic. These are designed entirely by Jamb and are manufactured from lost wax casting.
