ABOUT lights up!

LIGHTS UP! has been designing and producing stylish and functional bespoke lighting in industrial Brooklyn, NY since 1987. 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.

LIGHTS UP! makes lamp shades by hand in a 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 the line is made in the USA, and from early use of antique lighting parts, mixed metals, and custom cold water finishes, they have always felt a responsibility to use use sustainable materials and techniques.
