Julian(far left) – Julian founded Exeter Antique Lighting over 30 years ago, since then he has built up an incredible varied range of stock and has an invaluable knowledge of the antique world and everything lighting!

Julian is usually found scouring antiques fairs and markets both in the UK and abroad, or in his workshop on The Quay working on his latest project! if he’s not there he will be playing double bass in the legendary rockabilly band Delta 88!
