Kinzig Design studios create lamps artistically handcrafted in the US by sisters-in-law Susan and Caryn Kinzig. Each piece incorporates their distinctive designs with a celebration of color and texture to be treasured for generations.
Kinzig Design Home by Susan Kinzig and Caryn Kinzig ''Traditional lighting with a twist. As we design each lamp our goal is to create beautiful and distinctive lighting that will endure the test of time."
After seven years as a graphic designer, Susan Kinzig began a career as a jewelry designer. Fifteen years later, her knowledge of jewelry design and metalworking had grown extensively, and she decided to expand her creative outlook to include lighting design. Caryn Kinzig, Susan's sister-in-law, had spent 20 years in an investment career when she decided to leave the corporate world and follow her creative passion. Susan and Caryn teamed up to form Kinzig Design Home.
Susan and Caryn work together to create each of their lamps. They incorporate proprietary elements with vibrant glass (blown by two glass studios) and solid brass and copper accents. The lampshades are deeply colored and sewn from embroidered silks and rich fabrics. The lamps are individually finished with patinated metals and surface textures that will not fade or discolor, and are topped with distinctive finials.
