Crystal-Smith is a relied upon source for chandelier
fabrication and restoration. We service chandeliers in a number
of prestigious landmark properties in the United States.
New York's City Hall
Crystal Smith Designs was responsible for the major
restoration of a number of chandeliers throughout the building,
including the pre-1900 gaslight fixtures that illuminate the
main rotunda. Upon the completion of the 9-month long restoration
process, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani hosted a re-lighting ceremony
at City Hall.
Originally designed for Maharzai of Indian royalty, the chandelier
in Plaza 400, a white-glove residential building on Manhattans
posh upper Eastside is one of the largest Baccarat, and perhaps
the oldest chandelier in New York City. Crystal-Smith Design
was commissioned to restore and maintain this antique work
Tavern on the Green
Revered as one of New Yorks most popular dining establishments,
and the venue for the citys most prestigious political,
special and charity events, the enchanting visual allure of
Tavern on the Green lies in its fine art, antique prints and
breathtaking one-of-a kind chandeliers which date back to
the 1800s. These elements create a visual theater that
is the magic of Tavern. Over the last few decades, Crystal-Smith
craftsmen have been called on to restore and re-install many
of these fine lighting fixtures.
Miles Brewton House
This very important and completely restored national landmark in
historical Charleston, SC required our services to exactly fabricate
and replace numerous missing and broken components on a period 24-light
King George-style lead crystal chandelier hanging in the formal living room.
The team was also required to clean and re-pin the entire fixture on-site,
because the artifact was deemed too valuable to be moved.
Ethel Barrymore Theatre
The Shubert Organization, owners of numerous Broadway and Off-Broadway
theatres contracted Crystal-Smith, Inc. to perform an on-site restoration
of a 14' tall and 8' wide early 20th century Baccarat crystal chandelier,
hanging in their recently renovated theatre. Our team, along side their
in-house crew, erected scaffolding and worked over thirty feet above the
theatre cleaning, re-wiring, and replacing broken components custom
fabricated by Crystal-Smith.
Crystal-Smith was commissioned to assist in the installation
of several large custom-designed crystal chandeliers in the
lobby of this premiere New York City hotel designed by Phillipe
Stark, which is known for its cutting edge style and decor.
The two large "floral fixtures" on the marquees
at the trendy Takishmaya Fifth Avenue store in New York City,
each holiday season, were designed and installed by the experts
at Crystal-Smith Design. A combination of lacquered, simple,
metal, tubular frames overlaid with natural floral arrangements
create unique seasonal lighting fixtures.
