wish list


Fanatical about flames; silly about smokers and utterly obsessed with the smells, tastes and traditions of the Deep South, Hickory's West Kirby forms part of a small, but perfectly formed group of authentic barbecue-style restaurants which live and breathe the values of southern USA hospitality.

The Challenge

Based upon five key values of authenticity, welcome, guests being guests, quirky and community, it was important for the design to reflect all of these objectives.

The brief; to reformat the entire space design of the brand, keeping its heritage and rich red tones but adding texture and providing cool Instagram-friendly features.

Chantelle Lighting was commissioned to meet the design brief through its lighting design for the West Kirby restaurant; a theme which screamed industrial.

The Solution

We provided a range of industrial fittings for the project. In order to provide a warm welcome to guests using the booth style eating areas, we manufactured a bespoke feature fitting with a conduit pipe frame and 24 staggered pendant drops.

Industrial pendants in a deep gloss red outer and cream inner with wire shades covering cage adorn the open kitchen seating, and further, matching pendants light up individual seating booths.

Clear glass schoolhouse pendants were also featured above the restaurants seating arrangments, whilst our exclusive red Sulphur finish was used on existing pendants to give them an industrial look to match the design theme.

Seven fisherman style pendant in an antique brass finish with speckled glass shades offer the perfect welcome to drinkers at the bar, and traditional style wall light in an antique brass finish, with an adjustable shade and arm complete the eatery's look.

The Result

The complementary mix of industrial themed lighting goes a long way to creating the restaurant's rustic, outdoor-in style while creating the perfect welcome for its many guests.
