LIGHTING OVER BARS

Bars are places where people come together to forget the outside world and to have fun. If you are hanging lights over your bar that are forgettable or something people have seen over and over again for years, you are not adding to that fun. You're not giving your people something to talk about.


We recommend pendants or linear suspensions for over bars. Don't do something with just a single bulb -- go for multi-bulbed pendants that provide more complex patterns. Something to look at when the big game isn't on.


Linear lighting works, too. Our Tribeca Banqueting Chandeliers and step-up Industrial Banqueting Chandeliers work great -- you can line them up for longer bar areas.

INDUSTRIAL STEEL PIPES & FITTINGS

We transform ordinary pipes and fittings into extraordinarily memorable chandeliers and linear suspensions. We get the balance between masculine and feminine, rough and smooth exactly right. This is lighting for sophisticated tastes.
