Artisan-crafted in Wisconsin, our Streeter floor lamp features a generous arc design to provide lighting over a sofa or dining table.

Made with Care

Our lighting is artisan-crafted in small runs which allows for incredible attention to detail. “There’s an element of pride that goes into our products,” says Brian Linehan, Merchandise Associate at Room & Board. “People put their unique skills to use every step of the way. From machining custom parts to developing special manufacturing processes, our lighting is fabricated primarily in the U.S. by family-owned companies.”

Meara wall sconces are designed to be versatile–they can be either plugged in or hardwired, allowing you to use them anywhere from the entryway to a bathroom.

Designed with Purpose

Most of our lighting is designed in-house and starts with customers’ needs in mind. We listen to feedback and create timeless lamps, pendants and sconces to work in every room of the home. “Everything we design fills a need,” shares Brian. “Whether it’s task lighting for reading or a floor lamp that’s capable of lighting an entire room, function comes first.”

Plus, most Room & Board lighting can’t be found anywhere else. It’s designed specifically to pair effortlessly with our furniture. In fact, many of the items are made by the same workshops that build our sofas, chairs and tables.

Each Simone table lamp is slipcast and then glazes are meticulously hand-applied in a carefully choreographed order to produce a finish with incredible depth.

Quality Materials Matter

When you invest in lighting made from the finest materials, you need to buy it less often, using fewer resources in the long run. “Room & Board lighting is made to pass along to the next generation,” explains Brian. “We use the highest quality materials and let them drive the design. For example, there are forms that work wonderfully in porcelain but can’t be replicated in wood or steel.”
