At Wandsworth our designer light switches have been used for over 100 years to add the finishing touch to some of the grandest hotels and luxury residential developments across the world, the long list includes Kensington Palace, Ham Yard Hotel and currently the premium residential developments The Corniche and Merano on the Albert Embankment, London. Its not just these prestigious properties that our collections have been used, we recently discovered our designer switches and sockets had been used in the development of a new stand at Stamford Bridge back in 1975.
The first part of a planned major redevelopment at Stamford Bridge our brass light switches and sockets were used throughout the new stand, known as the East Stand and was the only section of this major redevelopment that was completed. Opening at the start of the 1974-75 season, the stand still survives today, despite the major ground redevelopment that took place in the mid-90’s and is a three-tiered cantilevered design. The East Stand is known as the heart of the stadium as it houses the tunnel, dugout, dressing rooms, conference rooms and commentary boxes.
At the time of the development Chelsea were a mid-ranked second division team but included some club legends, Peter Bonnetti, Ron Harris and Captain Ray Wilkins within the team. We placed an advert within the match-day programme for the home game versus Hull City on the 18th February to highlight our involvement in the development of the new stand and for the record the game ended 0-0.
Having been handcrafting premium electrical accessories for over 100 years our adaptable collections include designer light switches and sockets that meet the design needs for modern, contemporary designs to elegant, period styles and with the added capability to create bespoke designs and custom finishes, it is why our electrical accessories were and continue to be selected for landmark developments like Stamford Bridge.
