Feiss Lighting was officially established in 1955 by Murray Feiss, but its history extends all the way back to WW2. While Murray was serving with the U.S. Navy, his mother, Rose, was busy sewing lampshades and forming a small manufacturing business in New York City. Murray’s father made the lampshade frames.
After leaving the navy, Murray studied finance and marketing at New York University, and then joined the family business. He began importing porcelain figures, which were wired and adapted into decorative light fittings, topped by his mother’s hand-sewn shades. These ornamental lights quickly grew in popularity, and Feiss Lighting was born.
Today, Feiss Lighting is one of America’s leading manufacturers of decorative light fittings, with facilities in New York and China. It is widely respected for the quality, originality, and affordability of its products. Now in its third generation of family ownership, the company employs an expert team of designers, draftsmen, colour forecasters and quality control specialists to meet its aims.
Feiss take pride in not cutting corners. It sources the best-quality metals, crystal, marble, ceramics, porcelain and many other materials. A broad palette of different finishes is used to achieve unique, distinctive light fittings. Very focused on producing ranges rather than one-offs, you can look to Feiss Lighting whenever you need coordinated, stylish lighting for your home or business premises.
