Niche Modern was founded in 2003 as an unexpected accident. The founders, Jeremy Pyles and Mary Welch, were designing products for their own lives that satisfied their particular design sensibilities. After other people saw their products and expressed appreciation for their work, the duo founded Niche Modern. The company is known for its distinctive glass pendant lights and other lighting products that are comprised of expertly crafted hand-blown glass. Niche also designs other glassware and home products, including elegant vases and candle holders.
Another giant of mid-century Danish design, Poul Henningsen (1894-1967) worked primarily in lighting design. In his work he consistently sought a soft glow of light from his various lamps and pendants. Though he designed over 100 of them throughout his career, he is perhaps best known for that classic pendant, the Artichoke.
Founded in 1999 by Jan Andersen and Poul Madsen, Normann Copenhagen is a design brand that aims to make a difference in the design world by creating quality, versatile, and colorful products. The brand has collaborated with both established designers and up-and-coming talents to create a wide foray of products ranging from pendant lights and glassware to couches and storage containers. Normann Copenhagen strives to challenge expected design conventions and uses traditional materials in untraditional ways, creating distinctive yet highly functional products.
Jeremy Pyles founded Niche Modern in 2003 with his wife Mary Welch. Frustrated with the lighting options available for Niche, their Manhattan home store, Pyles and Welch created their first hand-blown pendant for the shop. The Stamen Pendant became the store's most sought after item, so in 2005 the husband and wife team expanded their fleet, debuting a line of ten different glass pendant lights. Niche Modern has since expanded its line to include more lights, glassware, and other tableware items. Pyles earned his BFA from the University of Texas at Austin in 1993.

Vera Kleppe and Åshild Kyte are the talents behind the up-and- coming Norwegian
design studio Vera & Kyte. The Bergen-based duo credit their mixed aesthetic influences
and curiosity about materials—as well as eye-opening internships with companies Fora
Form and Varier—for their early design successes. These include pendant lights in vivid
lacquered birch and colored glass, a daybed that evokes leisure and relaxation in its
steel-frame form, and a series of pedestal tables that the designers say epitomizes their
focus on “unpretentious combinations of form and color.”

We began working on The Miriam...which is a 24 unit luxury rental project located at 1208 Enfield Rd where Old Enfield and Clarksville Neighborhoods come together. This is actually the With terrazzo flooring; Gaggenau appliances; views of downtown; and much more...this was an incredible build out from start to finish.

Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup both graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts' School of Architecture in 1969. Both men worked together at Danish architect Henning Larsen's studio after graduating. The two architects teamed up professionally and worked together for the majority of their careers, including their first design—the Semi Pendant Light—in 1968 while they were still in university. The Bonderup & Thorup team has designed watches and in-store displays for Georg Jensen, the Arktikum museum in Finland, and the harbor area in Elsinore, where they designed everything, from urban planning projects to the ticket offices.
Spanish designer Jaime Hayón (born 1974) is a master of materials. Born in Madrid, he grew up with skateboard culture and graffiti art and studied industrial design before joining, in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy Fabrica, which he later led as design director. Since then, he has created copper and ceramic vases for Gaia and Gino; crystal-laden pendants for Swarovski; an upholstery, aluminum, metal, and wood chair for Established and Sons; and even shoes and interiors for Camper. In 2009, he took on London’s Trafalgar Square to create a giant chessboard with enormous ceramic pieces for the annual design festival. The sky is clearly his limits.
