The LBL Lighting Story
LBL Lighting was founded in Chicago in 1971 as a small family business, originally known as Lightning Bug Limited. Since then, LBL has grown into a leading company in contemporary, trend-forward lighting design, with a reputation for quality. Track lighting, pendants and wall lights by LBL are designed and assembled by a team of more than 300 in a 205,000 square-foot facility in Skokie, Illinois.
Today, LBL is a go-to choice among interior designs for their vast collection of line and low voltage pendants, chandeliers, linear suspension, flushmounts, monorail lighting, contemporary bath and vanity lights, wall lights and outdoor light fixtures. Plus, LBL is a prominent leader of energy efficient lighting as LED is incorporated into most of the brand's catalog.
Why We Love LBL Lighting
LBL Lighting develops its various fixtures with three core values in mind: Beauty, originality and quality. Its art glass pendants (the brand’s contemporary forms inspired by organic shapes), suspension pieces, wall sconces, ceiling, bath, outdoor and other fixtures are empirically beautiful. The beauty in LBL products lies in their originality, using unusual shapes and the latest low voltage and LED lighting technologies.

Noteworthy Lighting From LBL Lighting
The Interlace LED Suspension is a customer-favorite that truly makes a statement in modern spaces. It features an aluminum ring covered in stainless steel cabling that encases multiple touches of energy efficient LED light. Kitchen islands will appreciate the character of the Seguro Pendant, or look to the uniquely designed --and dare we say really cool-- Chill Pendant. And finally, the Hunter Outdoor Wall Sconce is the perfect example of LBL Lighting’s core design aesthetics.
