Wolfers Lighting

Buying a light should be a hands-on experience, and at this interactive showroom it is. There’s a dimmer, switch, or knob on nearly every wall, as well as every kind of fixture imaginable, from funky frosted-glass sconces to crystal-draped chandeliers. Contemporary sculpted-glass pendants hang from one alcove while chrome-plated bedside lamps spill from another. Browse through several catalogs or speak to an expert staff member who can help plan individual rooms or large-scale projects down to every detail. From classical to completely funky, this selection of pieces from around the world is unrivaled.
