The Company:

Pooky is all about beautiful, decorative lighting. Lights that look as though they cost a fortune, but don’t.

As an international e-commerce company, we recognise the responsibility on us to do what we do responsibly, ethically, fairly and with as little impact on the environment as possible. We aim to design products that will last, for their quality of build and for our avoidance of skittish fads.

We’re a tight-knit team of super-committed individuals who love what we do and who do it with a smile and a sense of humour. We are immensely proud of what we have created, and the most important aspect of that is the team that we have working with us, who provide a high degree of commitment, dedication, and loyalty every day, helping us to achieve the aims and objectives of the Company.
