It’s no secret that Weston Park has a stunning collection of art works by the likes of Gainsborough, Sir Peter Lely and John Hoppner, and in order to ensure our extensive collection is showcased to its full potential we called in art lighting specialists TM Lighting. Using the innovative TM Picture Light to bring the collection to life, TM Lighting re-worked the lighting schemes in the Dining and Drawing rooms.
TM Lighting is the designer and manufacturer of a new generation of LED lighting products for the art world. The company has married classic picture light design with the flexibility offered by the very latest LED lighting technology to create specialist luminaires that deliver a vastly superior quality of art lighting for the home. The result of this research and investment is a product that matches museum grade lighting in terms of light quality and distribution through a simple and unobtrusive fitting.
Crucially for the art works here at Weston the new lights are an intrinsically art conservation friendly light source, as one the characteristics of the LEDs used is that they emit zero UV or infrared rays which can damage delicate pigments in the artworks. Also, due to the slim and discreet nature of the picture lights it is ideal for use here where our paintings are often hung one above the other.
We were thrilled with the work carried out by TM Lighting, especially in light of the redecoration of the Drawing Room – the new lights set off the pictures in the most natural way.
