Introducing the Crystalline series by New York-based lighting company Niche Modern

 Niche Modern – the lighting and tabletop company renowned for its elegant handcrafted glass blown designs – has introduced a new lighting collection, the Crystalline series. Made up of four beautiful pendants – Axia, Delinea, Trove and Calla – the new collection embraces playful, fresh colours and bold defined angles, but never strays far from Niche’s core design principles of simplicity and elegance.

Like all of Niche’s products, each pendant in the Crystalline series is blown by hand in Beacon, New York.

This new collection is the first to be designed with two goals in mind – to meet increasing global demand and to be used with energy efficient bulbs. Each pendant from this collection will be supplied with Niche’s signature nostalgic incandescent Beacon Bulb – which works with both 120v and 240v settings. As an alternative to this historic lamping style, customers will have the choice to pair their pendants with award-winning Plumen brand light bulbs. Plumen offers energy efficiency without compromising great design and Niche is very excited to be embracing new technologies while keeping aligned with the sophistication and elegance the brand is well known for.

Though the pendants are beautiful on their own, a grouping of three or more offers maximum impact.

• Axia boasts a daring substantial middle

• Delinea offers sleek, defined edges

• Trove takes its inspiration from the idea of a treasure chest and the precious gems it holds, as seen from the striking diamond silhouette

• Calla pays homage to the famous lily

Each pendant is offered in a nine rich colours: Grey, Amber, Crystal, Condesa, Rose, Chartreuse, Tulip, Clementine and Icicle.


Niche Modern was founded by the husband and wife team Jeremy Pyles and Mary Welch. The company has a unique and almost accidental beginning. When Pyles and Welch opened a home furnishings store in Manhattan, there was an honest and organic need to fill the empty storefront with some inspiring display lighting. The couple searched high and low but they couldn’t find anything suitable, so they undertook the challenge themselves. What began as a search for the perfect light is now a 10-year-strong and growing New York manufacturing company. Niche has garnered a reputation for designing beautiful modern hand-blown glass lighting that conforms to the highest standards of excellence. Each piece of glass produced by the chic contemporary lighting company is one-of-a-kind and handcrafted in their Beacon, New York, glass studio. Niche is very proud to be bringing manufacturing back to the local community, while keeping alive the timeless tradition of handmade glass.
