Lighting design in the U.S.A. benefitted from a free market. Different companies were working at the same time designing and producing similar products for the same market, often with only slight differences in their style. Due to the location we rarely have the opportunity to reclaim and restore light fixtures from the U.S.A., but some of our perennial favourites are the old signal lights that adorned the highways of the midwest. We reconfigure and restore these timeless classics into functional pendant lights, for both residential and commercial use.View all lights from U.S.A

The Eagle Signal and Sign Company is one of the oldest traffic light manufacturers in the U.S., founded in 1931 in Moline, Illinois. Eagle became one of the market leaders of traffic signal lights, competing with other brands such as Crouse-Hinds and Marbelite, for control of the midwest American market. During the 1930s and 1940s Eagle manufactured a limited range of lights but often upgraded their designs with minor changes. In the 1950s and 1960s they went on to produce flat-back models and larger 12 inch designs.View all Eagle Lights

Their product is invariably beautiful and wonderfully restored. To have lights that have seen so much and then get a second life is inspiring in many ways.

I’ve now purchased five different products over two home refurbishments. Alongside the product, the service, speed and packaging it is spot on. It's only skinflint that make me wish I had another project to work on and a larger property to kit out.

Thank you for the very careful crating and packing. The fixture is even better in person! We are so impressed with not only your inventory, but your outstanding customer service.

The lights definitely bring a sense of authentic character and history to the space. It's the truth when I say I had the lights before I even had final house plans!
