For more than 40 years, Maxim Lighting has been creating light solutions that are innovative in both style and function. The lighting brand offers thousands of products, including chandelier, semi-flush, and pendant lights. Who said Maxim lights are just for the indoors? Maxim outdoor lights are ideal for illuminating your home’s exterior.
Quality Light Fixtures in the Making
Brothers Jacob and Zvi Sperling founded Maxim Lighting in 1970 in Los Angeles, California. The modest operation began a few years earlier when Jacob, an aeronautical engineering student at the time, began working as a sales associate at a local retailer and became familiar with the lighting industry. Soon after, the young student was creating original light fixtures in his garage, which he sold throughout California out of the back of his station wagon.
Innovative Lighting Designs
Jacob’s innovative designs met with overwhelming praise and demand for the light fixtures quickly increased. By 1975, the operation moved from Jacob’s garage to a large warehouse in downtown Los Angeles. The company grew steadily and in 2004, they introduced ET2 Lighting, a line of contemporary fixtures with European influences. Today, Maxim Lights has offices in California and China, and is a well-known leader in the lighting industry.
What are the Best Lights for Your Home?
Maxim Lighting believes that a business does not start with a sales pitch, but rather a discussion of needs and possible solutions. Their philosophy of never settling for less has fueled their success with:
- Maxim Chandeliers - Chandeliers lend an elegant touch not only to a dining room, but also to a foyer, bedroom, and living room. These light fixtures truly sparkle when suspended high above a long, grainy wooden table or a grand piano. In addition, these suspended lights provide both general and task lighting.
- Maxim Semi - Semi-flush lights are cross between flush mount and chandelier lighting. These lights hang about four to eight inches from the ceiling and are ideal for rooms with ceilings ranging in height from eight to ten feet.
- Maxim Pendants - Pendant lights are the go-to-fixture for kitchens and breakfast nooks. When grouped together, these lights can create a strong visual element while providing functional task lighting.
- Maxim Outdoor Lights - Outdoor lighting serves a dual purpose, to create a welcoming entrance for residents and guest as well as to discourage would-be intruders from trespassing. Outdoor lights can also highlight architectural and landscape design.
