THE SCHONBEK BRAND
Schonbek® lighting is synonymous with authentic handcrafted crystal chandeliers of the highest heirloom quality. Each creation is a radiant masterpiece of elegance and opulence, designed and crafted to illuminate generations to come.
In 1870, young Adolph Schonbek left his grandfather’s glassworks to found A. Schonbek & Co. The young entrepreneur focused on manufacturing crystal chandeliers of the finest quality and quickly built up a successful international business. He was eventually awarded the company’s iconic crest by Franz Joseph I of the Habsburg Court, most notably known as the former Emperor of Austria.
Passing on this entrepreneurial spirit, the family’s resilience and passion continued to shine through in its chandelier making, with ingenuity as a driving force. For more than 140 years, the Schonbek name has carried with it a reputation as a change-maker in lighting, revolutionizing the industry.
True to the company’s heritage of done-by-hand craftsmanship, each premium Schonbek chandelier is delicately hand worked, creating timeless lighting designs of exceptional grandeur that are appreciated by traditionalists and modernists alike
