Custom means that each project is different, that we solve new problems every day, and that some projects forge new ground in decorative lighting. Our people thrive on the challenge, and look forward to working with the unique, the extraordinary, the daunting, and always the beautiful in custom lighting.

Crenshaw works in nearly every medium, from bronze and brass to aluminum and steel, acrylic and glass, fabric and crystal, and wood and resin. Our craftsmen, known especially for their metalwork in brass and bronze, are widely acknowledged as among the best in the industry. See our team at work in our Project Updates blog. View examples of our work in our Custom Lighting Gallery.

From Great

Crenshaw’s capacity for engineering difficult and complex projects on a very large scale has resulted in the award of large, high-prestige projects like the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, 15 Central Park West, the Pennsylvania State Capitol, and many more over the years. Browse our Portfolio for a selection of our work.

To Small

Crenshaw does equal justice to small unique projects. A pair of custom brass lantern sconces for flanking a doorway is not too small a project for a private client. Clients bring us projects like this because they trust our quality, value our craftsmanship, and want lighting they can’t find in any standard product line or store. The set of lanterns shown at right were constructed of hand-hammered heavy gauge brass with a unique hand-drawn heron design.
