& Lighting Fixtures
The Jewelry of your Home
Acclaimed lighting studio Michael McHale Designs uses rough industrial materials and real, high-quality crystal to create unique chandeliers, pendants, linear suspensions, sconces and other industrial-glam lighting fixtures that are at once masculine and feminine, formal and informal, and that work well with all decors. Perfect for those who are bored with factory made light fixtures and are looking for genre-defying centerpieces with artistic provenance.
Meet the Designer
For years, Michael McHale was a pretty creative guy stuck in a fairly uncreative profession. He was an entertainment lawyer specializing in international television formats. But after years of drafting format licenses for shows like Who Wants to be a Millionaire? and The Weakest Link, he realized that his creative itch wasn't being scratched. All that changed in 2007.

"We have two McHale Chandeliers in our New York home. We appreciate the innovative qualities of both these pieces very much. While they are without a doubt fine examples of modern design, they both fit in beautifully in our 100+ year old living room.”

”Our McHale chandelier literally elicits gasps of admiration from people who see it for the first time. The mix of elegant and industrial fits our loft and our lives perfectly."
“I first saw Michael’s lights in New York City and I fell in love with them. I liked them so much I decided to contact Michael personally to discuss the possibility of him designing the lighting for my upscale Moscow cafe. Although we have a lot of things that stick out. Michael’s pendants and sconces are the rave. Everyone loves them and getting them is a decision I will never regret.”
“When we decided to renovate our Capitol Hill kitchen, I knew the center of attention would be a fantastic, light fixture located above our island. I had seen a breathtaking fixture while visiting New York, and for a couple weeks, I couldn't stop thinking about that beautiful chandelier. I had to have it. Thankfully, I tracked down Michael’s website. Then, in fact, I bought two. My kitchen is bright white, with clean lines. Michael’s design screams cool and sexy, unlike most things about Washington DC, and added an industrial touch. An extra bonus for my family: when the sun sets through our kitchen window and catches the light of the crystals, it casts a multitude of happy rainbows throughout the room. Thanks Michael, we love your work.”
