Our Story

Over a Century of Design and Craftsmanship

In 1905, Henry Alfred Framburg started H. A. Framburg and Company in Chicago, Illinois. Framburg is still producing the highest quality commercial grade and residential lighting fixtures over a hundred years later. And each Framburg lighting fixture is designed and handcrafted in the United States of America.

From formal to casual, gothic to contemporary, and rustic to refined, Framburg handcrafts one of the broadest product lines. Each Framburg fixture is the beneficiary of refinements in metal forming, finishing, design, and engineering techniques that have been refined through the generations. Not long ago designs were rendered painstakingly by hand, today, Framburg designs are modeled on a computer and are the distillation of countless iterations that allow us to achieve superior form, proportion and scale

Framburg is one of the most integrated manufacturers in the lighting industry and one of the few companies still manufacturing product in the United States. Our manufacturing capabilities allow us to produce fixtures of superior quality, thematic consistency, and design integrity.  Our current product line is a manifestation of our continuing evolution and the ongoing conversation we are having with our customers and the design community.
