The Dowsing & Reynolds story started with James (Dowsing-Reynolds), concrete sculptures and vintage light bulbs.

To cut a long story short (you can read more about James’ journey below)… D&R has now grown beyond James’ wildest dreams into a successful company that not only sells gorgeous light bulbs, hardware and lighting accessories, but that is more widely concerned with home décor. No ordinary home décor though.

Everything we sell has to go through the D&R filter before it makes it into the store. We’re looking through a lens of home décor with an edge. We’re always on the lookout for lighting and home accessories that are a little bit different – sometimes even quirky. Things you won’t find on the high street. They have to be design-led AND affordable – no easy combination to achieve.

We began as an online store, the D&R team working from our lovely old mill in Leeds. As the business grew and grew, we decided it was high time we opened a bricks and mortar shop where people could come and touch and see our products for themselves. We found the most perfect location in Leeds’ Victoria Quarter, and in September 2019, with our shiny new shop team, we opened the doors.

We’re all about striking fittings and stylish accents and take influence from lots of different design genres. Our varied range of beautiful and bespoke lighting products means you can buy, or create, your own lights to match your own interior personality style perfectly. What’s more, we have an ever-expanding collection of hardware that’s ideal for coordinating with our lighting. We pride ourselves on getting your extraordinary light bulbs, fabric lighting cable, ceiling lights and designer lighting accessories ready to post on the same day – across the globe.
