The Rambusch Decorating Company, a family-owned fourth-generation firm working in the tri-state area and nationally is celebrating 125 years in business. The full-service company is composed of designers and artisans practicing decorative arts. For more than a century, they have applied their craft to enhance the experience of interior architecture through lighting, liturgical furnishings, stained glass, mosaics, and restoration.

Recent Rambusch projects in the New York City area include: Trinity Church Wall Street, the Statue of Liberty Torch in the new Liberty Island Museum, the Empire State Building, 120 Broadway, the Firefighters Memorial at Ground Zero, Marble Collegiate, the Fred French Building, the Chrysler Building, and the New York Stock Exchange, to name a few. This talk will coincide with a retrospective exhibition of their work at the National Arts Club (November 27th to January 5th).

The Rambusch Decorating Company opened its doors in New York City in December 1898 when Frode Rambusch, a Danish immigrant, started his interior painting business, primarily focusing on church interiors. As the twentieth century led to the increased availability of electric light, Rambusch recognized its potential to enhance his decorative work and started to design and manufacture his own lighting fixtures. This dual enterprise continues to this day. For more information on Rambusch, please click here.
