The Minka-Lavery Story
In 1982, Minka-Lavery was established by Bill and Marian Tang as the decorative lighting division of the Minka Group, based in Corona, CA. Their tactic in giving Minka-Lavery light fixtures their sense of luxury was to take inspiration from past design styles whenever possible. The Minka-Lavery line has grown to include everything from petite European-styled crystal chandeliers to contemporary bathroom lighting and a variety of outdoor light fixtures. Even the most contemporary of these fixtures have a subtle sense of history to them.
