Hector Finch started the eponymous lighting company in the mid-1980s and first traded from a small antique center in Preston, Lancashire. With his father, a general antique dealer, they traveled widely across the North of England, buying stock from private houses, auctions, and dealers. Hector’s natural talent for engineering and how things were made enabled him to find the right specialist restorers for antique fittings to be brought back to life. In 1991 Hector moved to London and set up a small shop in Chiswick Lane, selling to private customers and rapidly developing a loyal following of interior designers. Establishing a larger showroom on Wandsworth Bridge Road in the mid-1990s remains a showcase for the collection, which has grown with a design aesthetic of clean lines, correct proportions, and a less-is-more philosophy. They fuse crisp, precision metalwork by British artisans with glass, ceramics, and alabaster sourced from mainland Europe. They pride themselves in supporting specialist craft makers for their Italian glass and ceramic ranges and are passionate about maintaining relationships with traditional, family-owned businesses. They believe in sustainability based on the simple premise that if something is well made and beautiful it will have a long and useful life and to this end believe that by sourcing local materials and components they are supporting our environment, community, and economy. They continue to follow their aspiration to provide a product that sells across the world because it satisfies a demand for high-quality, well-designed lighting that will give pleasure to future generations. Hector Finch designs are regularly featured in high-profile homes, restaurants, and restoration projects from around the globe and appear in many of the design trade’s most respected magazines: World of Interiors, House & Garden, Architectural Digest, and Veranda to name but a few.
