Introducing the Schoolhaus

Introducing the Coolhaus

Niche is thrilled to introduce the latest in new pendant lighting, please welcome the Haus Series!  Just in time for fall, this collection evokes a modern and sophisticated take on the simple style of classic glass shapes.  The Schoolhaus pendant is a modern twist on the hundred-year-old traditional schoolhouse style, while the Coolhaus pendant emerges as an archetype of modern design with clean, symmetrical lines.  All of our pendant lights are made by hand in our New York factory.  We love sharing the process of how each pendant is made and hope you’ll check out the Schoolhaus & Coolhaus videos!

Inspired by nostalgic historic glass shapes, the Niche Schoolhaus Pendant neatly balances tradition with beauty. As with all of our pendant lights each piece is hand-blown in New York, keeping alive the timeless craft of glass blowing. Niche’s signature transparent glass colors create a modern and sophisticated take on this iconic silhouette making it an object of antiquity to be loved by generations to come.

The Niche Coolhaus Pendant emerges as a modern monument with clean, symmetrical lines. Reminiscent of glass from the Art Deco Period, this pendant is sleek and sharp. Made by hand with love in New York, this piece represents luxury and glamour. The geometric shape of the Coolhaus is offered with our rich new colors, constituting a timeless piece of glass.


A California home gets a modern update

TRG Architects and Allwood Construction have collaborated on a 3,000 square foot home in Hillsborough, California. Architect Leslie Lamarre’s design for this space went on to receive the highly sought after 2013 Watermark Award. The transition from what was once a difficult and outdated space to what is now a unique kitchen and living area is nothing short of impressive.

Effervescent Turret Pendants in Crosby Kitchen

Lamarre created the perfect entertaining space for her client, and avid blogger and food enthusiast. The quartz and walnut island is perfectly paired with the Niche Pendants. We think this space is simply bubbly with two of our own effervescent Turret!

Niche x DIA Beacon

Niche x Dia Panorama

This past week we thought we’d get out of the office and glass factory and head over to our neighbors Dia Beacon for a company-wide field trip. Led by Yasmil Raymond, the curator herself, we walked and talked through Dia’s newest exhibition, a retrospective of minimalist artist Carl Andre. The show spans over a period of five decades, first dating back to the late 50s and even including works from 2010. Emphasizing Andre’s various artistic abilities, the exhibition has approximately 50 sculptures as well as 200 poems. First unveiled as a collection at Dia in May of 2014, the show is slated to travel to Madrid, Berlin, and Paris. As Carl Andre once said, “My art springs from my desire to have things in the world which would otherwise never be there.” Be sure to check out the show, it will be at Dia:Beacon until March 2015.

That Not So 70s Kitchen

Crystal Bell Jar Pendants in Mila Kunis' Kitchen

Mila Kunis recently put her 4,900 square foot Beverly Hills bachelorette pad on the market. Publicized by Elle Decor and House Beautiful, we were instantly intrigued. Initially drawn to the mansion’s expansive kitchen area, complete with vaulted ceilings that connect the spacious living area to the kitchen, we couldn’t help but admire her kitchen island pendant-lighting. Upon further inspection we realized they were Niche Modern’s own, Crystal Bell-Jar Pendants. It just goes to show, stars love Niche too.
