- BRAND STORY -
Designed, engineered and assembled in the USA. Schonbek began designing chandeliers in Europe in 1870 and almost 150 years later, the company, now headquartered in Plattsburgh, New York, still fulfills the crystal-clear mission to make the world's best crystal chandeliers and lighting fixtures.
Even as machines have improved and manufacturing has enabled companies to produce fixtures at high volume, Schonbek stays true to its roots. Because of its longstanding values of tradition, heritage and handcraftsmanship, the company prides itself on being a “built to order” manufacturer. Most customers don’t realize Schonbek’s products don’t come off of a shelf. Every single order passes through a craftsman’s hands, ensuring the highest quality.
There's a reason Schonbek’s fixtures are sought after all over the world. Schonbek is synonymous with quality and luxury. You can find Schonbek's chandeliers hanging in buildings of historic grandeur such as palaces and luxury hotels. Or you may have been amazed by a Schonbek hanging in a casino, resort, fine restaurant and countless other glamorous settings, including Hollywood film sets. Yes, Schonbek chandeliers are a star unto themselves, appreciated by traditionalists and modernists alike.
Thanks to its aptitude for custom-made designs, Schonbek can partner with some of the most complex projects in the lighting industry. No job is too big when each job is treated with the same level of care throughout. Since being acquired by Swarovksi in 2007, the Schonbek dynasty has only grown stronger with each piece upholding the longstanding tradition and heritage of chandelier making brought over from Europe many years earlier.
