Do your lights come with globes, canopies and flex (cord)?

Canopies and flex:
Each pendant and wall light is provided with a ceiling or wall canopy and a standard length of flex. Canopies and flex are typically supplied black, however, contact us if you would like a white canopy and flex supplied instead (note: some products such as the White Ora are supplied with a white canopy and flex as standard).
