For more than a century, our designs have sparked conversation and brought people together. Light brings life to a home – and life is what Schonbek is all about. When families gather for Sunday dinner, new friends are made, lovers meet, and memories are created; Schonbek is part of every moment that makes life rich.
Our story began when young Adolph Schonbek left his grandfather’s glassworks to pursue his dream of making custom chandeliers with the finest crystal. Since then, Schonbek has grown into a world-renowned premium lighting brand, captivating consumers across generations and continents with its timeless designs.
Our styles reflect the dynamic aesthetic tradition of America. Ranging from classically elegant to contemporary cool, our fixtures are characterized by their warm and inviting shapes and close attention to detail.
We are driven by a passion for lighting that makes spaces come alive and have a love for perfectly balanced pieces of beauty and function. We make styles to talk about with details to remember; icons to treasure, carry through life and pass on to the next generation.
Wherever it is placed, a Schonbek piece fills the home with personality and elegance that transcends time.
In 2020, we celebrate 150 years of Schonbek lighting. The passion for innovation and commitment to beauty in every detail that has made Schonbek a world-renowned lighting brand over the past 150 years continues to drive us forward today. Rooted in the heritage of American craftsmanship, we constantly explore new ways to transform spaces with light, always with our century-long promise at heart: to make lighting that lives forever.
