Littman Brands is the epitome of the one-stop shop. Encompassing five different lighting brands—Troy Lighting, Corbett Lighting, Hudson Valley Lighting, Creative Systems Lighting, and Littman Brands Contract—it has evolved into an invaluable resource that offers not just mind-blowing custom pieces for those bigger budgets, but also highly unique accents and centerpieces that won't break the bank. Each brand has its own specialty, but one common theme runs throughout all the Littman lines: originality. In other words, you cannot go wrong with this homegrown company that houses designers, engineers, and meticulous project managers in both a 200,000-square-foot manufacturing building in City of Industry, Calif., and a more than 261,916-square-foot facility in upstate New York. We gathered options from just a few of these brands to give you a taste of what they have to offer.
Starting at $558
Epic’s aesthetic features lights sprinkled throughout the interior, diamond-shaped, plated topaz prism, screaming glamour for the Troy brand. The exterior frame is finished in forged iron and accented by polished chrome details. Epic is available in three pendant sizes suspended from aircraft cable and a corresponding wall sconce, all including G9 xenon lamps.
Textured glass: $7,990
The Manhattan LED pendant from Corbett Lighting celebrates the art deco glamour of old New York, delivering on the jewel-inspired details this brand is known for. Staggered glass tubes of different variations and sizes are held in place by satin silver leaf rings, creating an intricate play of light. Manhattan is available in three pendant sizes and a wall sconce.
Brushed brass and textured bronze: $138
The Ace sconce from Troy Lighting features an opal globe—outlined and held by hand-worked iron in dark textured bronze—radiating from satin-brushed brass (the two materials that characterize the Troy brand). A fabric cord runs on the inside of each model, coming up and out of the globe as a unique design detail. Ace is offered in three chandeliers, one island pendant, and one wall sconce with included G9 bulbs.
Starting at $384
As a modernist take on the candelabra, the Abrams sconce from Hudson Valley Lighting is a perfect addition to this brand that incorporates many vintage design influences. Elongated candlesticks of aged brass or polished nickel are mounted into black, textured arms that contain a socket on either side. An exposed carbon filament bulb rounds out the piece. Abrams is available in a wall sconce as well as two chandelier sizes.
Crystal and iron: $7,990
Featuring the shape and feel of a classic chandelier, the tiered formation of the Charisma pendant delivers on the luxury factor that is also a staple of the Corbett brand. Crystal rods are topped off with an iron border, made and finished in hand-applied gold leaf. A stainless steel frame and concaved crystal center refracts light throughout the fixture. Charisma is offered in four pendant sizes as well as one flush mount and two sconces.
Starting at $378
Silhouette is simply sophisticated with an airy design surrounding the globe or cylindrical diffuser in glossy opal glass hung from a black cord. It again features hand-worked iron, a staple of the Troy brand. Silhouette is offered in either gold or silver leaf and a variety of shapes.
