About Us

Sensio Lighting is a family run business with over 15 years experience and knowledge of providing high quality LED lighting to the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom market.

We believe in doing things differently, and place our focus on designing and developing the latest cutting edge lighting solutions, first. Alongside this, education is at the top of our priority list. Lighting is often perceived as complex and is therefore sometimes dismissed completely when purchasing a new kitchen. We want to make lighting simple, and endeavor to give you all of the tools you need.

Renowned for our expertise and quality, we are a fast growing global brand, currently established in the UK, USA and Slovenia.

Building a reputation to be proud of.

Founded in 2000, Sensio has grown from a small, family run business operating from the family’s garage, to a market leading authority on furniture lighting solutions. Still operating as a family business, we pride ourselves on bringing high quality, innovative UK product designs to the market year on year.
