Lights Up

LIGHTS UP! has been designing and producing stylish and functional bespoke lighting in industrial Brooklyn, NY since 1987. Our functional and ambient lighting is designed by founder Rachel Simon and nephew Tom Simon, with a focus on quality of light and quality of life.

Where and How LIGHTS UP! is Made
LIGHTS UP! makes all of our lamp shades by hand in our factory in Brooklyn, with a selection of over 40 shade material options, including 100% recycled PET (plastic bottles) fabric for our exclusive print patterns, and responsibly forested wood veneers. Much of our line is made in the USA, some of it uses imported parts, while from our early use of antique lighting parts, mixed metals, and custom cold water finishes we have always felt responsible for our shared planet and our precious resources.

Contract, Hospitality, and Custom
We provide elegant and practical lighting solutions for Contract, Hospitality and Residential markets. Please contact us for more information on how we can help you realize your commercial lighting project. LIGHTS UP! is a Woman-Owned Business.

All LIGHTS UP! lighting is UL and/or ETL listed, and LED & CFL compatible (and encouraged!)
