History of Quoizel Lighting

12 Oct 2022

Quoizel Lighting has been a leader in the industry for over 90 years. Founded in 1930 by Michael Chaikin, the company started as a table lamp shop in Manhattan. The name “Quoizel” comes from astrology, having to do with the alignment of several plants at the time of the company’s birth.Chaikin was focused on the curation of hurricane lamps which were fueled off of oil, rather than electricity. The most popular lamp was the Abigail Adams – which Quoizel sold up until a few years ago. As the brand evolved, Quoizel moved into electric lamps and fixtures, starting to offer a full line of hardwire lighting products. In 1964, Ira Phillips came onto the team as Director of Merchandising and Sales. Under his vision, Quoizel became a leader in lighting design and trends. In 1986, Phillips gained sole ownership of the company.One of the main highlights in the Quoizel line is the affordable collection of Tiffany lamps. Quoizel’s unique approach to Tiffany is fueled by our focus on st...
