About Us

St. Louis Antique Lighting Company began in 1973 as a residential lighting company, specializing in the sales and restoration of period lighting. It quickly expanded into the commercial side of the lighting business, restoring and replicating historic fixtures and custom manufacturing new designs for architects, lighting designers and contractors.

With 30 employees in a 16,000 square foot factory, it has a modern metal fabrication shop capable of manufacturing nearly anything in metal. All metal work including spinning, forging and finishing, with the exception of casting and plating are done at this location. Much of our pattern and mold work is also done in our own shop. Our shop workers are true craftsmen, many with decades of experience. We have two full time lighting design professionals and a sales manager to assist our clients from initial contact through design, production and delivery. Fixtures are designed using AutoCAD and can be made in 3D if required. All of our fixtures are either U.L. or ETL listed.

With its work at the U.S. Capitol, 13 State Capitols, 31 Federal Courthouses, numerous churches, universities and other important historic buildings, St. Louis Antique Lighting has achieved an international reputation for manufacturing high quality custom lighting. We pride ourselves in working with architects and lighting designers to adapt new industry technologies for use in period lighting projects. Several of our projects have received IES, IALD and AIA regional and national awards, including the prestigious International Illumination Design Award of Excellence.

With over 3000 custom designs in our archives and an extensive collection of historic lighting catalogs, including every page of every historic lighting catalog in the Library of Congress on CD, we are confident in our knowledge and ability to serve your custom lighting needs.
