Jonathan Browning: Form Follows Beauty

Company president Jonathan Browning talks lighting in this insightful video, recorded as part of Restoration Hardware’s artisan video series. Jonathan discusses his inspiration for starting the brand and as a designer, as well as explaining the painstaking processes involved in creating such fine quality bronze products.

Founded in 2003, Jonathan Browning Studios designs and manufactures the finest quality bronze products. Using the investment cast process, every piece begins as a carving in wood, from which moulds and waxes are produced for casting. This lost wax method ensures that every fixture retains the highest level of detail possible. The final step in production, polishing, is done completely by hand. 

A love of classicism and industrial design sets the tone for the collections, whether they be chandeliers and sconces, torchieres and table lamps, or furniture and window hardware. Timeless and elegant, these fixtures are manufactured to a standard rarely seen today, and meant to last forever.
