In 1923, Frederick Cooper, a Chicago artist, established a studio to create beautiful sculpture and watercolor paintings. American architecture was in its heyday in the Windy City. Mr. Cooper was drawn to the still fairly new invention of lamps. Through mixing the media of brass, fabric, glass and wood, Cooper created exquisitely designed lamps that matched the swift innovation in American architecture.
Today, our aim is to provide tremendous value to our customers who appreciate unique design handcrafted in authentic materials with distinctive shades. Quite simply, we are in the craft of illuminated art. The media for our art is a broad range of beautiful materials that are inherently fussy to fabricate- brass, bronze, nickel, copper, art glaze ceramic, painted porcelain, crystal, marble, jade and alabaster.
Our entire collection is on display in High Point, North Carolina. See us at the High Point Market, where we launch new product each spring and fall. Our showroom is located at 200 North Hamilton Street.
Our design committee is in unfettered pursuit of the broadest array of styles – refreshed traditional to transitional with classic lines. These include Deco, Nouveau, cubist, organic, clean and elaborate. We have active design collaborations with Larry Laslo, Mario Buatta, Alexander Julian, John Mascheroni and Joann Barwick. Our collection includes Outdoorables – lamps designed to withstand the rigors of the outdoors – and Lightinis – beautifully styled petite accent lighting. We feel that there are styles for nearly everyone.
Starting from our designers’ ideas, renderings, and drawings, Frederick Cooper’s global network of committed artisans create heirloom quality lamps. We carefully select a luxurious fabric to shade each lamp base. Our signature Frederick Cooper shades are peerless in execution. Unmatched quality is the core of our business. As a result, our lamps are featured in the White House, embassies and luxury resorts around the world. We appreciate that luxury does not mean having to wait forever. We carry several hundred styles in inventory so that you receive product quickly. Our attentive sales representatives and customer service department can satisfy your needs from product availability, order status, contract and custom quotes. Thank you for your support.
