We started Lighted Landings with the intent to manufacture and distribute Lighted and Non Lighted newel posts. The idea was simple, we believed in updating an old design that provided safety to the stairs.
Lighted Newels came into fashion in the mid-nineteenth century and remained popular until around 1930. In larger homes, they were often used at any point the stair turned or even along a stretch of railing in the upper stair hall, to supplement wall lighting and add a dramatic accent.
Newel post lights range from simple, single-light lamps to large multi-branch fixtures. In later Victorian times, newel lights were often quite sculptural, representing historical or mythological figures. Newel post lamps were found in all styles of houses, from Victorian to Mission, before eventually fading from popularity and necessity in the 1920s.
In earlier periods, these free-standing gas lights were also called "Pillar Lights", and were used to light shop counters, hotel desks or other public spaces. In modern kitchens with large central islands, newel post lamps make a striking and useful form of task light.
Today, we continue this tradition of manufacturing high quality, many times, hand turned newels. Wo do also offer in the local St. Louis market typical or traditional stair parts, but with the same philosophy in mind.We continue to offer products that are safe for our homes, American made when possible, and with the best possible service we can provide. Some of our most loyal customers have had order delays, damages, and missing items from their order. (Oh No!) But since we stock most of the items we sell, and believe that each and every order we get is another chance to serve a customer to our best ability so they pass along our information.
We began recently carrying wood products to serve out contractor and builder accounts that wanted a better quality product than they could get elsewhere in the St. Louis market. Presently, we operate a stocking warehouse in Chesterfield, MO that carries treads, risers, handrails, turned newel, box newels, Lighted Landings Lighted newel posts, as well as accessories for the stair industry. We also import, and distribute iron stair products such as balusters and railings here. We operate a CNC lathe and offer wood boring capabilities here as well. We can custom turn any style of newel, pillar, deck post or kitchen island leg.
