Lights Up acquires Matthew Lampshade
October 9, 2013,
Bespoke residential and commercial lighting manufacturer Lights Up has acquired Matthew Lampshade, a 40-year-old lamp shade manufacturer in Brooklyn, N.Y., known for hospitality lighting and custom fixtures.
Additionally, the two companies' facilities have been consolidated in a new industrial loft in Brooklyn's Industry City, home to a number of other manufacturers and fabricators.
The new facility includes wire frame fabricating, shade cutting and a custom workshop in addition to distribution, all under one roof.
"We are making our bespoke lighting within sight of downtown Manhattan and the new Freedom Tower," Simon said. "It is a fun and inspiring place to go to work every day."
