Co-founders Jeremy Pyles & Mary Welch renovate a former bodega market and open a gifts & homewares store in New York City's East Village.
When the search for the proper lighting fixtures for the shop returned no results, Jeremy & Mary decided to make their own. After collecting electrical parts and collaborating with a glass-blower, Niche's first pendant, the Stamen, was born. The original stamen that hung in the window made a statement and soon become to store's best selling item.
With a series of 8 hand-blown glass pendant lights now in the collection, Niche HQ relocated to the Hudson Valley, though the glass pendants were still being made in New York City.
Niche makes it's second move to a beautiful, light-filled 8800 sq. ft. loft building in Beacon, New York.
Niche expands their operations and begins producing their signature glass pendants in a 20,000 sq. ft. abandoned bronze foundry in Beacon, New York.
