Spotlight: The Bright Group

True Craftsmanship

With contemporary designs fabricated to insanely high standards, The Bright Group’s products will bring your décor to the next level. Combining luxury, quality, and exclusivity, these pieces are well worth the investment.

The Details

For more than 80 years, The Bright Group has been a hidden gem of the American design industry. This maker represents a diverse collection of small, independent manufacturers, designers, and artisans, who all bring their unique perspectives to their pieces.



Why We Like Them

Much of the group’s inspiration comes from classic mid-century design, but with a contemporary twist that takes each piece from traditional and familiar to dramatic and high-end. A primary focus on silhouette and form, rather than detail and decoration, results in bold, elegant products that can blend seamlessly into any space.

Limited production runs mean that each piece is bound to be unique, but if you’re looking for an even more bespoke item, you can collaborate with the group’s designers to create original works. By working with a designer to guide the creative process, you’ll end up with a one-of-a-kind product that is truly reflective of your personal style.

The timeless appeal of The Bright Group’s products continues right down to the way their designs are made. With solid materials and excellent craftsmanship, the firm ensures each piece has been built to last – and never go out of style. This is the kind of furniture that can be passed down through generations.


What to Look For

This firm offers a huge array of furnishings, ranging from couches and consoles to lighting fixtures. Prepare to spend a little more on these sophisticated items, but you’ll gain the value of longevity and style.
