Luxury Lighting Direct
Luxury Lighting Direct is characterized by originality, quality, convenience and a devotion to inspire ones inner sense of design through lighting. What was once exclusive is now made exclusively for you.
Luxury Lighting Direct was founded by Ryan Fisher in New York in 2012 due to a dissatisfaction in what the decorative lighting industry had to offer; lighting fixtures with recycled designs, deflated value and an inconvenient path to purchase.
Realizing the very definition of “value” has changed with current trends and technologies that now includes the following attributes: Design, Quality, Brand Awareness, Price, Engagement, Convenience and Social Awareness, Luxury Lighting Direct began its journey.
Luxury Lighting Direct set out to bridge the gap between manufacturer, consumer and design professional by offering exciting, unique and originally designed lighting fixtures with high value directly to consumers and design professionals. This is achieved by: curating the most innovative boutique lighting designers and brands from around the world in collaboration with its very own private line. By leveraging technology to bring you as close as possible to the product designers and brands, Luxury Lighting Direct is able to condense the industry value chain offering products at the highest value.

"FROM THIS LOCATION THERE IS NO ROUTE GUIDANCE AVAILABLE TO YOUR FINAL DESTINATION" – GPS
Ryan Fisher's entire professional career has been in the lighting industry, running and managing a successful design and manufacturing lighting company. He is passionate about good design, high quality but most importantly the story behind the design and how it took shape. The message often heard on everyone's GPS (see above) took on a larger meaning one day after numerous wrong turns. It occurred to Fisher, and has stuck with him since - this message holds true for finding your way in life and design.
Through Fisher's professional experiences, concern grew with the way consumers and design professionals were shopping for their lighting fixtures. There was little educational aspect about the brand or products and people were missing the emotional connection to their purchases. Luxury Lighting Direct was launched to combine world-class lighting brands with technology and education to form a community of good design in a convenient way.
While there is no step-by-step road map to find our destinations, Fisher hopes Luxury Lighting Direct will be part of your design destination.
