At Skinflint, sourcing original vintage lighting is just the beginning…
Military runways, Eastern Bloc factories, Victorian theatres, school buildings and asylums. Wherever we’ve salvaged our lights from, every Skinflint product goes through a variety of processes to get it from the worn and sometimes dilapidated state it arrives in, to a stage when it’s ready for your project – looking great and in line with modern safety and environmental standards, while still full of character and fascinating stories to tell.
