Welcome to John Hodgson Lighting
John Hodgson has been operating out of these premises since 1977. The company is one of the longest occupiers in Hampton Hill High Street. Through these times John has been known as the go-to man for all your lighting requirements, recommended by builders, electricians and clients.
Lighting technology has changed a lot and JHL has kept up with all the new technologies and prides itself on the ability to combine traditional lighting requirements with new energy efficient technology. Our showroom also stocks the old fashioned lighting products that we all know and love. Yes we sell light bulbs!
We are stockists of many traditional and modern fittings – Tiffany lamps, solid brass pendants, uplighters, garden lights, crystal chandeliers, kitchen pendants and LED lamp replacements. We can’t stock and display everything available to us but we are supported well from our suppliers with very short delivery times.
As a rule, we don’t sell on-line. We know that many of our customers prefer to see the product before purchasing or at least know that there is someone on the end of the phone offering advice should a problem arise. We like the old fashioned method of listening to our clients problems and providing solutions with our expert knowledge and experience. Besides, have you ever tried to put a light fitting back in its box?!
We offer a personalised shopping service. If there is a particular product that you are looking for, we can source it for you. We have many overseas clients with numerous properties and they rely on us to project manage their lighting requirements.
We work with many creative companies in sourcing and supplying products for film and television props departments. Locally and nationally.
We offer an in-home lighting consultation service. We also invite clients into our showroom for private consultations. You can bring your plans and your ideas and we’ll let you know if you’re on the right track. Choosing lighting can be very overwhelming. On average you choose lighting once every eight years, we choose lighting every day.
Now at 85 John is still delighting the lighting world with his experience and knowledge. A lot has to be said for providing solutions to problems when you have 55 years of knowledge behind you. His love of the subject, the industry and of his client base is obvious in our repeat clients and constant flow of people that come in for advise and solutions to problems.
John is supported by his daughter Liza Hodgson, who has recently returned from Australia. She brings 15 years of international lighting project experience with her and an Msc in Illumination Design from Sydney University. Her passion and love of lighting is exhausting and her ability to help clients understand new technology is easy, calming and at time humorous! She teaches lighting and gives lighting seminars for architects, interior designers and builders - or anyone who is interested in just learning more.
Papi has no idea about lighting. But he is a very valuable and indeed the highest paid member of the team. He spends his days snoozing and snoring and wagging. When he is not distracting John from an exceedingly long to do list, he provides a calm and light hearted attitude to the work environment.
