She is co-chair of the Women in Lighting Committee for the American Lighting Association, a Board member for ART – The Creative Home Furnishings Network and an Affiliate member of the International Association of Lighting Designers.

Currey & Company
is a wholesale manufacturer of distinctive home furnishings, including lighting, furniture and accent pieces. Our reputation for innovative furnishings spans the residential, contract and hospitality spaces, and Currey products are found in interiors around the world.
Our vision, to create distinctive home furnishings, has never wavered. Our mission, to serve our customers, owners and employees in an exemplary manner while nurturing a culture that encourages all to flourish, has remained steadfast for 30 years.
2018 marks our 30th year in business. This anniversary is very special to us, as we reflect on all those who have made us a success in a competitive industry over the last three decades. We are a diverse mix of people who work together and take pride in our work, but this wouldn’t be the case were it not for the spirit the Currey family instilled into the weave of our company, which is still maintained by our leadership today.
We’ve evolved into a design house and manufacturer by building on five decades of practical design experience informed by continuing dynamic inspiration. Under the family’s second generation leadership, we’re always trying new ideas, studying, evaluating and adjusting the line quickly. This process ensures our designs are of the moment, yet grounded in the authenticity that helped us get where we are today.
We’ve maintained the fundamental family values of founder Abraham Kleinberg. “Mr. K” has never taken shortcuts to produce any product. He’s always dealt fairly with customers and vendors. Everything he did represented a genuine, sincere effort to bring pleasing products to fashion-conscious, design-savvy customers.
American Brass & Crystal
American Brass and Crystal has truly embraced the old world style of manufacturing with masterful artisans putting pure attention to detail into every fixture they create. Our manufacturing facility holds more raw Brass components than any Lighting manufacturer in the world. This allows us to choose from thousands of raw individual castings to personally create the chandelier you chose for your home. This is where the process starts. Each individual component gets hand drilled to the specific crystal layout you have chosen from us.
Today, we are 230 strong, at a company that started out in 1974, with two college buddies in a barn with great creative talent, passion and a vision. Hubbardton Forge is one of the country’s oldest and largest continuously-operating commercial forges, where artisans handcraft each product to order, one at a time in Castleton, Vermont.
We are design-driven. Our designers and makers collaborate to achieve a common vision. All based in Vermont, they are able to share ideas and design intent and their goals both in form and function for each piece.
Manufacturing domestically allows a level of responsiveness to customers we couldn’t otherwise provide, keeps well-paying jobs in the U.S.A., and helps to strengthen our local economy. All of our products are designed and manufactured at our facility in Castleton, VT.
Progress Lighting is committed to manufacturing award-winning energy efficient products while educating individuals on new options available in solid-state lighting. With over a century of lighting technology, leadership and engineering, Progress Lighting offers the highest quality in residential and commercial lighting solutions bringing products that deliver aesthetic appeal, stellar performance, easy installation and value to the designer marketplace.
