Taurus Wines are an independent, award winning wine merchant and importer near Bramley in Surrey Hills. They specialise in parties, weddings and celebrations as well as having an extensive range of beautiful wines and spirits.
We were recently commissioned by the owners Rupert and Felicity, to work alongside their interior design company ‘This Is Design’ (Richard 07886 348695) to design and supply the lighting for their barn renovation: the brief was for us to provide a scheme that would be in keeping with the barns rustic feel, as well as to include some statement features to specific areas to give them more of a homely feel.
We achieved this by using rod mounted lighting tracks with LED projectors, to the higher central area – these fittings are controlled via a hand held remote, so that they can be redirected should the merchandise layout change or a special event take place within the space. Alongside this we used a variety of medium and oversized black pendant lights with copper interiors to the entrance. To the rear area we used recessed spotlights that can be focused on the merchandise and Fliss supplied the quirky pendant that hangs above the circular glass opening to the wine cellar.
There are two mezzanine levels, one either side of the store. One is where the office area is situated, here we used suspended linear LED profiles to avoid glare and create a nice working environment. The other is home to a tasting table and snug area. Here we draped copper pendant sets over a wooden sleeper above the table, with filament LED lamps and wall lights, giving the area a more intimate feel.
The results are fantastic and the store looks absolutely amazing – so if you’re passing, pop in and have a look at the huge range they have on show you’ll be very pleasantly surprised!
