Grand Light has created custom lighting fixtures of every style and for every application. Our team of specialists is comprised of professional metal workers and glass blowers whose mission is to create or re-create lighting fixtures of the utmost quality and authenticity. Our lighting fixtures are wired in accordance with UL standards, and our custom lighting team stands confidently behind their work with years of experience and dedication to quality craftsmanship.
Grand Light is restoring and modifying large historic ceiling lights with a custom designed LED retrofit from the William McChesney Martin, Jr. Federal Reserve Board Building, built in the early 1970s and located on Constitution Ave NW &, 20th St NW, Washington, D.C.
Grand Light designed and fabricated an amazing array of custom chandeliers and wall sconces for the Persian Terrace. The new fixtures closely matched the original fixtures' style and aesthetics, while complimenting the colors of the ornate faux wood ceiling and original hand painted images.
Our lighting restoration and custom lighting capabilities include research for historic accuracy, drawings, mock-ups, metal fabrication, polishing, painting, hot and cold patina application, welding, abrasive blasting, refinishing metal components, glass fabrication, replacing all electrical components, rewiring and testing in accordance with UL standards.

Congratulations to the Unitarian Church Of All Souls on the installation of their newly restored chandeliers.
The Grand Light Team worked tirelessly to restore and preserve the original nickel and brass finishes. The cleaning process to preserve the existing finish included three ultra delicate steps:
1) Precision dry/wet soda blasting via a helical H20 gun, rotating the media for optimal control and non-destructive pressure on the metal surface
2) A combination of industrial ultrasonic cleaning tanks with patented high performance generators followed with a delicate hand cleaning process
3) Multiple hand applications of UV resistant clear museum grade metal wax
Additionally, Grand Light artisans sorted, counted, categorized, and cleaned over 1,000 crystal components. Of these components, 14% of the total amount were missing or damaged beyond repair and required custom fabricated Austrian replacement crystal.
