Melissa, owner and creator of lumière, is a Tunbridge Wells mum of 4, originally from South London. Melissa has always had a flair for interiors and a passion for lighting so she decided to concretise her dream of creating a decorative lighting consultancy hub, offering a bespoke service which caters for the lighting needs of both retail and trade customers.
Guiding their clients to finding their forever light, lumière is a decorative lighting gallery showcasing high-end designs from globally recognised designers. With a fantastically broad range of brands, lumière has already earned a glowing reputation for sourcing the most exquisite decorative lighting creations within its first year of opening.
“Lighting up the world one little light at a time”
Owner and Founder Melissa had always had a flair for interiors and a passion for lighting. She decided to concretise her dream of creating a decorative lighting consultancy hub, offering a bespoke service which caters for the lighting needs of both retail and trade customers. Having renovated a number of properties with her husband, Melissa discovered a gap in the market for high-end lighting in their local town and surrounding areas.
With the gallery installation complete and the privacy vinyls finally removed from the windows, Melissa and her team were very excited to open their doors for the first time on Saturday 4th July…
We love lumière Because…

More About lumière
lumière became a real lockdown labour of love for Melissa. Having just collected the keys weeks before lockdown in the UK, the gallery was brought to life just months later.
Overwhelmed by the incredible support she received during these unprecedented times (namely through their Instagram account), lumière was even compared to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory by one Instagram followers, for it’s incredible lighting offering.
