Kinzig Design Lamps are made in America by Susan Kinzig and Susan's sister-in-law, Caryn Kinzig. Susan lives on the West Coast and crafts the bottom part of the lamps incorporating beautiful blown glass from two boutique studios in San Francisco. The lamps are individually crafted with metals and surface textures that will not fade or discolor. Susan also makes the distinctive finials and pulls.
Caryn Kinzig lives on the East Coast (actually Pennsylvania) and makes the shades which are sewn from embroidered silks and rich fabrics. These shades are truly top-of-the-line WOW!
All of the Kinzig Design Home table lamps have female names like Maggie (one of our favorites), Pearl (one of newest), Roxy, Lucia, Natalia, etc. The Kinzig Design floor lamps have male names like Harry (one of newest), James, Freddy, Max, etc. Currently there are 66 table lamps and 23 floor lamps... all on our NielsensGifts.com website with great images.

The compliments we receive from our customers who have purchased Kinzig lamps tells the story. "We love our Maggie lamp!". "I am going to have to purchase another Kinzig as getting way too many compliments on Roxy!". "Most beautiful lamp we have ever owned."
When Arthur and Dorothy Nielsen started Nielsens Exclusive Gifts 67 years ago, they added hand- crafted lamps to their offerings in the early stage of the business. That is what attracted their daughter, Andrea Nielsen Bartlett, to the beautiful Kinzig Design lamps that Susan and Caryn Kinzig are crafting.
