Throughout its storied history, New York's SoHo district has been transformed several times. Each of these changes made its own imprint on the style that comes from the region. Although beginning as a residential zone, SoHo really took off as an industrial center, becoming home to a thriving textile industry. This prosperity lasted until World War II, when these textile companies relocated to the American South. This left a void in the region that lasted until the 1960s. Allured by the area's high ceilings, artists flocked to the region to work and live, which was against zoning laws at the time. Undeterred, new residents continued to pour into SoHo. The sudden population influx forced the city's hand, and these zoning laws were changed. The SoHo we know today started to take shape.
We found inspiration in both the history and style of this neighborhood. Available as a wall sconce, the Houston Street SoHo Sconce embodies the hallmarks of the region: exposed galvanized mountings and warehouse shades. As a result, these rustic wall sconces are both durable and stylish. We assemble this wall lighting by hand offering an unequaled attention to detail. This attribute is found only in American-made lighting which helps ensure many years of service.
The artistic influence is found in the customization options. With an array of vibrant finish colors available, the warehouse shade shines in almost any decor. This combination of style and function makes the Houston Street beneficial to both residential and commercial lighting applications. It can also be brought to exterior lighting needs, truly enhancing the style of any space!

Please Note: No metal fixture, no matter the finish, is guaranteed against corrosion especially in salt air environments. If your fixtures will be installed in a location near salt water or with extreme weather conditions, we recommend routine and careful maintenance of your lighting including a mild soap-and-water wash and gentle buffing to help maintain the finish.
