Fuller's Three Guineas Pub Goes Vintage with LED Filament Lighting Posted on 19 Apr 09:26
Leading LED filament brand, Bright Goods announces the installation of decorative, antique-style LED lamps into The Three Guineas, a Victorian Fuller’s owned pub within Reading train station. An array of hand-crafted LED filament lamps from the Bright Goods range were chosen to complement the newly refurbished pub, enhancing the many traditional features of the Grade II-listed station building and showcasing the contemporary interior.
Built in 1840, initially as the central railway ticket office, The Three Guineas has recently undergone a major facelift, keeping the traditional railway theme but given a contemporary twist. The previously unused basement has been opened up to create the Firefly room, an authentic and striking vaulted cellar which has been stripped back to expose the original brick-built arches. The main bar and kitchen areas have been remodelled to provide an open display kitchen and quaint bistro tables adorn the outside terrace. The pub is illuminated throughout with an impressive array of Bright Goods LED filament lamps that are housed in rustic reclaimed pendant lights, industrial brass cluster fittings and glass crystal chandeliers to evoke a welcoming and mood enhancing environment.
“The lighting is the standout feature in each room” said Jayden Kopsala, Assistant Manager at The Three Guineas. “It attracts a lot of interest from our customers and has helped create the atmosphere we want here. We envisaged a contemporary look with a classic feel to the pub and the lighting has helped make this a reality, making the perfect environment for all of our customers.”
On behalf of Fuller’s, The Light Corporation was commissioned to survey all its managed estate of over 200 pubs, and recommended that low energy Bright Goods LED lamps were specified for each pub.
Peter Turner, Property Director at Fuller’s added: “We were very impressed with the appearance of Bright Goods LED lights. They provide illumination that is as warm and welcoming as a filament bulb, maintaining the all-important ambience of the pub in the evening. It is also highly controllable, and can be dimmed as required. It allows us to maintain a traditional feel while reducing our carbon footprint.”
