Mullan design and manufacture bespoke lighting for the commercial, hospitality and residential sectors. The company combine traditional materials and shapes with contemporary flourishes.
The Mullan story is indeed one of both downfall and successful rejuvenation. Based in a very remote area on the border with Northern Ireland, Mullan village (meaning The Mill) was a bustling rural centre with over 80 people employed in the Border brand shoe factory until it closed in the 1970s. Mullan shoe factory along with the local village of 18 workers houses soon fell into disrepair and lay abandoned for almost 25 years. In 2008 Mullan was established in the old shoe factory and quickly brought life back to the factory building with some of the Mullan team moving into the newly restored houses in the village. After 4 years in business, Mullan expanded their operations as they took over another abandoned factory in the UK just a few miles from Mullan village in County Tyrone. Mullan now have an ever expanding team of designers and crafts people creating beautiful pieces for a range of discerning customers.
As an Architect by trade, Design Director Mike Treanor has a keen eye for beautiful design. Having expanded his horizons by travelling the globe for almost a year before finally establishing Mullan, Mike draws inspiration from many international styles. By way of his travels he brings his many design influences to life in the form of beautifully hand crafted luminaires for the world to enjoy.
Each Mullan lamp is individually hand crafted in Ireland, every piece being hand finished and painted, making each piece individual and unique. Their range varies from vintage luminaires to timeless classics. Simple and elegant, they will immediately harmonise with your interior scheme and highlight your chosen area of focus. From bulbs and suspensions to more intricate fixtures and bespoke shades, Mullan is striving to be a permanent fixture for all your lighting needs. A mix of clean lines, along with vintage character and a dash of worldly flair make Mullan’s style both fun and ultimately timeless!
