In this bizarre state of the country, I have been caught mid way through renovating an old cottage. With a daunting task of needing to order a large amount of lighting in Lockdown, there was one shop that went out of their way to be helpful, and supportive. Peter and Jean at Oxford Lighting Showroom have been a true lifeline and worth a visit to their showroom in Culham. From the outside you wonder if you are in the right place on an old airbase, but the welcome and knowledge opening the door are second to none. It is a genuine family run business with years of experience and expertise at their fingertips. The showroom is a treasure dome with examples of high to low-end lighting of every description. What they do not have in stock will be ordered within days. Viewing of products can be booked without pressure to buy. Advice on correct size of bulbs, the strength and kind of light you need will be discussed but you are simply given time to browse and enjoy. My order arrived within the week and I now feel I have the back up of a guru of electrical knowledge who I could phone or visit for the extra advice or information if I so need to in the future. I cannot recommend the company more highly and would return time and time again. Thank you for looking after me so well.
" We have just finished to decorate our new built house and at Oxford Lighting we have been able to source all our light fixtures. From the first visit to the showroom with its great choice of styles and suppliers, to the helpful advice and suggestions in placing the order of the various lights, we compliment Peter & Laura for their friendly service and very professional customer care."

" Wanted to share with you the lights that we purchased, they’ve just gone
up today in our new extension.
We love them!"
"I wanted to have some light fittings changed to accept LED bulbs instead of 4-pin fluorescent fittings, to have some sockets replaced, and to have one socket moved to a more convenient location.
The company readily gave me a quote for this work and explained how the safety regulations affected the complexity of the job, and were completely open about what they would and would not do in terms of making good. The work was done promptly with minimal disruption, leaving everything clean and tidy, and a bulb that turned out to be faulty was replaced without hesitation. In the end I only needed to do some minor filling and painting and Im very happy with the job. The service, from quotation to completion, was professional and reliable and I would be happy to recommend them."
“Oxford Lighting designed and fitted a new lighting system for us in our house and garden.
Peter and Laura were really helpful when we visited their showroom, listening to our requirements and making practical suggestions.
The quotation schedule was clear and detailed, and we were kept informed of progress on our order.
When a date for the work was set Peter and Jon the electrician came round to make sure that we were agreed on everything.
Fitting went very well and quickly, and Jon made sure that everything was left clean and tidy each day.
There was a small problem with one of the dimmers, and Peter was very helpful, coming round to assess the issue and solve it.
The final bill contained no surprises, and scheduled out everything that had been done in project, including the inevitable changes along the way.
We are very pleased with the final result, it is exactly what we had in mind, and has been much admired by visitors.
Oxford Lighting were helpful and friendly throughout, and I strongly recommend them for safe, reliable and stylish work.”
"We are very happy with the choice and how it fits in with what we are
trying to create in our new home. When we first came to you we didn't
realise you would have access to such a large choice of styles of lights
but we found exactly what we were looking for and thanks for your guidance
as well as great service."
"I make a point of supporting small businesses such as Oxfordshire Lighting, which is a local family firm.
Mr. Lamont has gone to a good deal of trouble for me, sourcing the particular lighting that I have asked for ( I am indeed very particular !) and providing excellent after-sales service.
He takes a personal interest in his customers, and if there is a problem he enjoys the challenge of resolving it.
I heartily recommend him and his company."
"Great lights, very pleased"
