The Light Yard


about us

In early 2015 UK based lighting designer Gwyn Carless and independent lighting specialist The Light Yard teamed up to create a unique and inspiring collection of vintage lighting.

The Alchemist Collection is our take on a collection of vintage bulbs with a modern twist. Each bulb is set into a hand crafted glass shade which replicates the stunning and unique reflective pattern of these beautiful filament bulbs.


Their commitment to quality is evident. We are committed to using the best quality glass to achieve a highly desirable and captivating reflection which is The Alchemist Collections trade mark. Combining this with high quality fully dimmable LED filament or traditional incandescent Edison filament vintage light bulbs, The Alchemist Collection of decorative lighting is fast becoming the interior designers light fittings of choice for 2015.


Each one is specifically designed to bring a touch of wonder, excitement and intrigue to any bar, club, pub, restaurant and hotel or residential project with a strong industrial retro theme. When used as part of a collection they stand out as a truly unique and beautiful series of lighting.

Established in the summer of 2013 The Light Yard is situated in the north west of England and specialises in a unique range of both indoor and outdoor modern, contemporary and urban lighting. We supply to interior designers, architects and contractors and end users from all over the world. The simple idea behind The Light Yard is to provide a unique and creative collection of bespoke and hand crafted lighting made by independent designers and manufacturers.
