Established in New York in 2003, Niche redefines hand-blown glass lighting. Since the company’s inception, we have been committed to being a best-in-class modern lighting solution for the architectural and interior design community. With an array of pendant silhouettes and an impressive depth of color choices, our high-quality products are sourced in commercial and residential projects across the globe. We are inspired to continue creating and lovingly crafting these designs for you.



Founder Jeremy Pyles & his partner renovate a former bodega market and open a gifts & homewares store in New York City's East Village. When the search for the proper modern lighting for the shop returned no results, Jeremy decided to set out to create his own.


After collaborating with a glass-blower and collecting electrical parts, Niche's first modern lighting product, the Stamen, was born. The original Stamen pendant light that hung in the window made a statement and soon became the store's best-selling item.


Niche's commitment to crafting modern glass lighting led to an expansion of operations and relocation to the picturesque Hudson Valley. Despite having only 8 pendant shapes and a limited color palette, the glass pendant lights continued to be produced in New York City.


The company quickly decided to move a second time to a 20,000 sq. ft. abandoned bronze foundry in Beacon, NY, where they were able to breathe new life into a once-forgotten space.





Niche was determined to create a dream work environment for employees, despite having a limited budget and strict deadlines. The renovation process began with the Cold Shop and Warehouse.



After completion, orders were finished and packed in-house for the first time. Meanwhile, the Hot Shop underwent renovation, and new equipment was gradually installed.



By 2012, the Hot Shop became fully operational. Since then, each glass pendant has been meticulously handmade in Beacon, New York.


We begin to use our very own CNC machine in-house to make modern lighting models and prototypes, just how we want them.


Niche introduces the Tabletop Collection, featuring a variety of colorful vases, votives, and carafes.


As the Niche team continues to expand, so does the range of products. We are proud to say that the entire Niche team now occupies a single building, with new offices, a conference room, and a photo studio on the mezzanine overlooking the Hot Shop.
