Since 2007, acclaimed lighting studio Michael McHale Designs has been combining rough industrial materials with heirloom-quality crystal to create chandeliers and other lights that are at once masculine and feminine, formal and informal, and that work well in all decors. Perfect for those who are bored with all the ubiquitous ho-hum, 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 production agreements and  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.
