Ann-Morris Inc. was established in 1947 in New York City, and is one of the premier destinations for the design trade.
The advent of the 70s brought about a generational change at A-M when the company began to specialize in custom lighting fixtures, pot racks, bar stools and a variety of reproduction fixtures produced by the most experienced and talented craftsmen. A-M prides itself on having worked with the world’s leading Architects and Designers for three generations, thus laying the foundation for valuable partnerships which continue to this day.
The demand for quantity as well as quality in the selection of antique lighting led to the design and manufacture of a custom lighting collection along with other custom metal work including the renown “Ann-Morris Pot Rack,” one of the company’s signature items. Using the highest quality materials in combination with the utmost attention to detail, A-M prides itself on the handcrafted excellence in all of its custom work.
MATERIALS, MANUFACTURING AND DESIGN
After decades of travel to Europe acquiring unique antique furniture and lighting, Ann-Morris’ second generation director, Herbie Schinderman, developed the manufacturing/design side of the business. Working closely with some of the finest craftsmen, Herbie designed and created a unique collection of custom lighting fixtures and hanging pot racks. The design and development of Ann-Morris fixtures have revolved around the various metals used in the process of plating and finishing overseen by a master quality control department.
During the late 1970s Ann-Morris Inc. began designing and developing a line of custom lighting fixtures made by some of the finest New York craftsmen. Experiencing a high demand for antique lighting in the late 70s, A-M’s second generation director, Herbie Schinderman, designed and produced a line of custom lighting which complimented the vintage lighting imported from Europe. Ann-Morris Inc. offers an extensive selection of custom light fixtures where a variety of options are available both in style and plating.
