The Ameico Story
"It takes innovation to create a classic." Such is the contention of Ameico, an importer and distributor of fine European contemporary lighting and home accessories. The company was founded in New Milford, CT in 1995 by Peter and Stephanie Kahane. Since then, it has been supplying design-savvy consumers in the United States with the best designs of the past century.
Over the years, Ameico has acquired an impressive stable of designers and design companies from all over Europe, including Punkt, Essey, Santa and Cole, Carl Mertens, Produzione Privata, Max Bill and many others.
Why We Love Ameico Lighting
Ameico is not ageist when it comes to contemporary design. It is their view that, while they may come from different eras, the modern home accessories and lighting products that Ameico carries all share common characteristics. They are all made with a high level of creative energy, have authentic and original contemporary design and display exquisite craftsmanship. These are products that stand the test of time both functionally and stylistically.
Fun Facts About Ameico
The Cubrik Square Suspension by Santa & Cole owes its name and modular cubic form to that famous '80s icon, the Rubik's Cube. In our opinion, Cubrik is much less frustrating and much more fun to play with.
Noteworthy Products from Ameico
Long live the incandescent light bulb! The transparent Bulb Pendant by &Tradition displays its light source in all its gleaming glory. The crumpled paper-looking Essey Bin Bin Waste Paper Basket is the seminal creation of John Brauer.
