Shortly after the end of World War II, brother-and-sister team Ann and Morris traveled to Europe to find unique antiques, vintage lighting fixtures and other distinctive and interesting items to import back to the United States. Quickly after, Ann-Morris, Inc. was founded in New York City in 1947. The late 1970s saw high demand for antique lighting, and the company’s second-generation director, Herbie Schinderman, answered the call by engaging the best craftworkers and artisans in the New York City area to make reproduction fixtures that echoed the beautiful antique ones that Ann-Morris had been importing from Europe for years. A variety of styles and plating are available, and lighting options include wall, ceiling, exterior, floor, table lighting and vintage fixtures from the UK and Europe. Along with lighting, Ann-Morris makes one of the most distinctive and unique collections of pot racks. Each one is made to the customer’s specifications; both wall- and ceiling-mounted racks are available, and size, plating and finish can be customized to beautifully suit any kitchen. Even two-tone and multitone colors are possible with built-in lighting an additional option. The company also offers a line of bar stools with customizable color and height, along with kitchen islands, shelving, coat and luggage racks, ceiling fans and mirrors. All are custom-made. Today, Ann-Morris, Inc. is one of the top destinations for elegant lighting and racks.
