They are as glorious as they are practical – whether dangling over a trendy, city bar scene or an intimate, dining room table. Niche also produces chandeliers and table lights. Niche – Made, not Manufactured in NYC.

     

    From a genuine need to fill an empty New York storefront with some inspiring display lighting, the Niche founders searched high and low and couldn't find anything decent, so they decided to design their own fixtures.
