The American Dream
Like all great American stories, The Light Brothers has a history rooted in hard work and innovation. Arriving from Sicily in the late 1800s, three brothers set their sights on making it in America manufacturing brass beds. Shortly after their arrival, the world was introduced to one of history’s greatest innovations: the electric lightbulb. Recognizing the significance of this new technology, the brothers pivoted their business and began manufacturing lamps and light fixtures instead. Within a few short years, their business had taken off. Explore Products
Just after the turn of the century, the brothers moved their growing business to Chicago. In 1903, they opened their first retail store on the corner of Lake and LaSalle Streets, where the business continued to thrive. For the next seventy years, the business continued to serve the Chicagoland area in various locations. In 1982, The Light Brothers moved to its current location in Lombard, IL, where it has become a mainstay business in the community.
