Today Rocco Borghese continues the family tradition , designing individual artistic and contemporary pieces that are unique for each client. Each piece is shipped with a signed certificate of authenticity for insurance and valuation purposes. Rocco Borghese combines an instinctive Italian understanding of style and design with the skill and passion of an artisan. Born in Southern Italy, Rocco began his career working with his glass sculptor father in their family-run studio and workshop. ‘The Borghese furnace”, as it was known, became synonymous in the local region and amongst its customers for its excellent and individual glass work. The family had already established a foothold in the UK by this time and Rocco was attending school both in Italy and the UK from an early age. In his twenties Rocco with his ambition and love for glass, decided to start his own glass blowing business, Rocco resided in London to study architecture with interior design. Following his graduation Rocco began his first lighting business, creating custom made lights using neon. After many years he began working exclusively in Murano glass, moving away from more commercial projects in favour of developing his lights as art pieces. Rocco eventually opened Borghese Luce Arte in Crouch End, with another shop in London’s affluent Kings Road in Chelsea equipped with workshops to create his unique art-light pieces. The main larger pieces are still created in northern Italy, Venezia in Mestre in his family’s foundary as they have since 1860. Rocco’s work has established a growing following amongst interior designers and his client base includes many well-known names. His designs have been featured on Channel 4’s ‘Grand Designs’ and are sold through Selfridges, Harrods and a number of boutiques in London’s Mayfair.

Rocco's team provided a great work of art for my ceilings especially my main passage light. The team was also great and professional to work with. I would highly recommend them.

The Borghese team from the onset were very professional in their approach and not at all pushy. They delivered and installed all the 3 chandeliers for my home that I wanted and they are a real work of art. Very proud of the pieces and would recommend them strongly to anyone looking for chandeliers.

Rocco Borgheses and his team are a total delight to work with. They have produced many amazing pieces for us in UK and US. He is our 'go to' person when we need something special for our clients, and he fulfils the brief every time, never ceasing to amaze us on how he can interpret our design brief, as well as adding in creative ideas of his own. Deadlines are never a problem, and no job is too big!

Rocco Borghese is an amazing craftsman and incredibly nice to work with too. We were looking for inspiration for a statement chandelier to go into the entrance hall of one of our projects and came across Rocco's shop front in Crouch End. We wanted this piece to be the focal point and it had to be both beautiful and understated, not always an easy combination to achieve. We looked at several options and eventually commissioned the stunningly beautiful Amiraglio Brillaante Murano Crystal chandelier that simply takes your breath away. We matched this piece with oversized pendants and delicate wall sconces. Overall just the most stunning effect. We had a vision and Rocco fulfilled it 100%. I cannot recommend highly enough and look forward to working with Rocco again soon.

Rocco and his team provided us with three beautifully designed chandeliers, showcase pieces gracing the hallway, upper landing and main reception. Each piece is individual and a work of art. We are very proud to have these in our home and they are regularly the subject of conversation as soon as friends and family pass the front door,. We had a wonderful flawless service. Thank you so much.
