Established 35 years ago, Vaughan is one of the world’s most eminent designers and manufacturers of decorative lighting, furniture and accessories. Founders, artist-designer couple Michael and Lucy Vaughan, have always been united by a collective passion for art and antiques. Together, they bring their artistic eye, discerning sense of style and meticulous attention to detail to the heart of the company. Michael and Lucy drive Vaughan’s vision and artist-led philosophy, providing direction and guidance to their in-house design studio, where every product is designed exclusively.
Vaughan is renowned for exceptional craftsmanship and quality. Traditional and authentic manufacturing methods are utilised and products are made, assembled, or finished in Britain. Using the very finest materials, such as solid cast brass as our lamps’ base substance, even when plating with nickel, Vaughan lighting and furnishings have a rare depth and richness of finish. Our Hampshire factory employs an outstanding team of engineers, craftspeople and skilled workers who ensure high standards of production. We also call upon some of the best independent craft experts, from blacksmiths to makers of hand blown crystal.
Our collection covers a spectrum of styles and eras, from the 17th century to modernism, yet almost every piece has a signature aesthetic. Clean lines, streamlined simplicity and a purity of form define our design philosophy. The Vaughan Collection is renowned for timeless design and quality, rarely affected by fleeting trends.
Whether traditional or contemporary, our lighting and furnishings work with a range of interior styles, while remaining true to Vaughan’s signature, pared-back aesthetic. Michael and Lucy’s shared sense of style is eclectic, drawn to the riot of textures and tones common in English country houses, as well as the contrast of mixing classic design within modern spaces, combining old and new. The Vaughan Design team find inspiration in a multitude of sources, from ancient artefacts to contemporary art.
