HARRISON D. MCFADDIN LIGHTS

Harrison Dawson McFaddin was born in 1874 in New York, later moving to East Orange, where he received his early education, studying at  Ashland School in 1890. He later took a degree in Engineering, working alongside his father in the manufacturing and importing of electric lighting fixtures. Today his name is head of the firm of H. G. McFaddin and Company, Inc. in New York, owners and manufacturers of electric appliances and other electric equipment. The Emeralite Lamp, more commonly known today as a 'banker's lamp' is an iconic design, characterised by a brass stand and green glass lamp shade. It was in 1909 that the first Emeralite lamp was produced,  McFaddin's  patent application for "a new, original and ornamental design for lamp shades" proving successful. This was to be the beginning of the manufacture of Emeralite lamps, continuing production for over fifty years. The Emeralite lamp is often associated with organisation and authority, bringing class and personalization to your desk, whilst making a workspace far more functional. There have been scientific studies have suggested green is actually the perfect color for banker’s lamp shades, as it inspires creativity, known as the “green effect. Explaining why banker’s lamps are often found on pianos, in art galleries and other areas where creative people flourish and perform. For inspiration on ways to use these lights and style inspiration please visit our Pinterest BoardTo read more about Harrison D. McFaddin please visit our blog article.
