  • New: Niche Modern Lighting – Made, not Manufactured in NYC

    axia_group_3-450x435 Niche Modern Lighting produces contemporary glass lighting in warm, translucent hues of blues, plums, grays and ambers. They are as glorious as they are practical – whether dangling over a trendy, city bar scene or an intimate, dining room table. Niche also produces chandeliers and table lights. Niche – Made, not Manufactured in NYC.

     

    From a genuine need to fill an empty New York storefront with some inspiring display lighting, the Niche founders searched high and low and couldn't find anything decent, so they decided to design their own fixtures. In 2005 they launched their line of unique hand-blown glass lighting at ICFF in NYC, and it was a huge hit.

    Each Niche Modern Lighting Pendant is hand made in New York with great care and is ideal for both hospitality and residential lighting.

    The Aurora Modern Pendant Light takes its name from the natural phenomenon sometimes seen in the northern skies when charged particles perform a dance of light as they enter the earth's magnetic field. Its hand blown glass curves represent the roundness of the earth's horizon line with an inspiring glow of warm light running through the center.
