Remains Howard

Remains Lighting Company’s exclusive collection of exceptional lighting fixtures, mirrors, candlesticks and handmade lamps are unified by gracious proportions and beautiful finishes, by which elemental materials are transformed into beautiful objects through the eye of the designer and the hands of skilled makers.

Our light fixtures are crafted in our 25,000 square foot, state-of-the-art LEED Gold factory in Brooklyn, NY by a dedicated team of artisans, engineers, and project managers. We believe that a thoughtful approach to the present begins with a thorough understanding of the traditions and techniques of the past.

Classical forms are built into our DNA, but we’re never prescriptive about their use, as the range of original and contemporary designs in our collection attests. Our team of artisans produces pieces that are pleasing in their proportions, solid and long-lasting in their materials, clear in their functionality, and timeless in their beauty.
