For 40 years, Hilliard has produced handcrafted, luxury artisan lighting. Hilliard specializes in lighting installation for hospitality, residential, and commercial design projects. Our team of professionally skilled craftspeople manufacture each piece in our specialized bronze foundry and glass studio in Arcata, California. Each signed and numbered fixture is of heirloom quality.
Shortly after meeting in art class at Humboldt State University in 1974, Noel Hilliard and Janene Anderson Hilliard discovered that they had both previously created custom lamps. Their newfound relationship led to crafting collaborative lighting, and was the spark for the company that would carry their name. In 1975 their shared desire for creating functional art was born into Lamps By Hilliard. Currently Noel, Janene, and their son Sam Hilliard design and engage in the line, making each fixture a genuine Hilliard Lamp.
