High-end lighting in classic contemporary styles by leading designers
The brand was officially launched in Houston, Texas in 1987 and quickly established itself as a different kind of lighting designer. Andy Singer, a former lighting salesman and the man behind the brand, didn't want to play the role of a distributor when the brand was conceived. Collection after collection, Visual Comfort & Co. has taken its rightful place in the world of high-end lighting. The first collaboration took place in 1996 with the design firm Chapman & Myers, who created the brand's visual identity. Myers' penchant for contemporary style and Chapman's more classically inspired approach resulted in a comprehensive collection of pendants and wall lights to appeal to a wide market. Today, 26 designers, including Aerin Lauder, granddaughter of Esthée Lauder, renowned interior designer Kelly Wearstler and the late Kate Spade, embody the Visual Comfort style.
