The Crystorama Story
European tradition runs deep with Crystorama. Founded by Abraham Kleinberg in 1958 in Brooklyn, New York, Crystorama started as an importer of crystal and brass chandeliers from northern Czechoslovakia, culminating in a European relationship spanning a 45-year period. A company that continues to use traditional methods of casting their products from authentic molds and patterns (such as decorative ironwork), Crystorama is most known for their hand-cut crystal chandeliers.
Today, Kleinberg’s three children run the business and have integrated more modern designs and trends in Crystorama’s current collections while retaining a high standard of craftsmanship.

Does life imitate art? With the heavy influence of fashion in Crystorama’s contemporary designs, art may be imitating life. Crystorama lets the customer in on their creative process with comparisons of their chandeliers and fixtures with scenes of the runway and red carpet.
Noteworthy Products from Crystorama
The Broche Collection is an example of the fashion-forward direction Crystorama has taken. A plume of metal feathers fans outward like a shield, as in the Broche Pendant. Go more modern with the exposed bulb options of the Broche Wall Sconce/Flushmount. Described as “metallic chic,” the Broche Collection pulls influence directly from the runway.
