About Us

A local lighting and design store
with international connections.

Gordon Crichton is one of the last independent lighting stores in the South Island, New Zealand.  We have spent almost half a century in lighting and after many generations the store remains today as one of Dunedin’s go to lighting suppliers. We are truly passionate about what we do, which is why our family run business has continued to grow throughout generations.

The first shop opened in 1936 as a wholesale business. Graeme Facer bought the business in 1975, and soon after his son Stephen Facer joined him. A few years down the line, Allan Facer joined the team in the late 90’s. Now you can find us situated at 90 Crawford Street, Dunedin. We are proud to stock one of the broadest ranges of quality designer light fittings in the country. We direct import many of our brands. These include Hinkley, Hubbardton Forge, Tech Lighting, Sea Gull Lighting and many more.

We believe “Designer lighting is art that shines upon itself”. After many years in the business, we know great lighting design can improve the quality of how we live. Contact us today for a free no obligation lighting consultancy service for your home.
