Founded in 1974 by Nargis and Nasir Kassamali, Luminaire began as a small shop in North Miami, Florida with a mission to make “Good Design” directly available to the public. Since its inception, Luminaire has continuously evolved to strengthen its position as an industry-leading platform for people desiring to explore and engage in the world of modern designer furniture. Through a curated portfolio of products and partnerships with renowned global designers, Luminaire has been a pioneer in design thinking and luxury home furniture.
By pioneering the practice of democratizing design, Luminaire has advanced its mission to interpret how the thoughtful application of “Good Design” principles can enrich people’s lives. Since the beginning, this unifying vision has been the basis for the continual exploration of design and what a luxury home furniture brand can be.
Today, Luminaire continues to hold true to its hallmark ideals of introducing new markets to the work of innovative international designers and how design can change the way people see, feel, and interact with their environment. What started with Nasir and Nargis Kassamali’s humble desire to share their vision with the wider public has continued to develop into one of the most influential and insightful global voices in modern designer furniture.
