ROBERT LONG LIGHTING
Unique and elegant fixtures are the hallmark of Robert Long Lighting, utilizing classic designs and handcrafted components that create distinctive and beautiful pieces.
The Robert Long brand is governed by a curatorial approach to the original designs we deem the most beautiful and functional. Our process is informed by aesthetics and attention to detail, achieved through excellent craftsmanship.
At Robert Long, significance is given to the selection of materials – they must contribute to the function of the fixture and allow it to work in tandem with the architectural environment. We select components based on what is truly right for the fixture, rather than by what materials are readily available. Consequently, many of the elements utilized in our fixtures are bespoke – developed and fabricated in our showroom and manufacturing facility.
We strive to articulate these design elements in a simple and honest form. Adherence to this philosophy has helped us re-imagine the original Robert Long aesthetic.
Our products are made-to-order, utilizing the abilities of individual craftspeople, allowing us to tailor our designs to your needs and specifications.
The fixtures in the Robert Long product line can be fabricated in an array of finishes; this wide range of options allows the products to be designed in harmony with their surroundings.
Finishes at Robert Long are not just considered a means of decoration or protection – they are chosen for their ability to complement the brand’s simple yet distinctively elegant design forms.
Our design showroom and manufacturing facility are located in Sausalito, California where we make our beautiful fixtures from solid brass, cast components and hand-blown glass. Our artisanal approach ensures a superior level of craftsmanship and personalized customer support. We are one of the few remaining companies where the owner still answers the phone, eager to answer questions and assist customers.

ROBERT LONG – OWNER
Robert Long, entrepreneur and curator of his father’s inspired luminescent creations, reinvents the Robert Long Lighting collection for the new millennium, infusing the brand’s original designs with a modern perspective. Robert has a deep appreciation for the craftsmanship of a bygone era and is driven by his long-time passion for restoring an old gem to its original beauty, from Georgian homes to vintage automobiles and sailboats to his father’s original lighting designs.
Dedicated to the values of superior design, utilization of local craftspeople, product integrity and quality manufacturing, Robert personally oversees the products’ creation, hand-selects components and goes the extra mile to offer exceptional customer service. For Robert, product integrity means standing behind the company’s line of lighting creations, even offering support for the brand’s original fixtures.
Bringing new life to his father’s company is an exercise in creative remembrance for Robert as he honors the original artistic vision and unearths the brand’s heritage. Robert works with the same glass blowers his father selected and reimagines the original creations with a modern spirit.
