New York lighting distributor since 1996


ood lighting is not always about making a room as bright as possible. A candlelit dinner, for example, is more romantic than eating under a spotlight. The lighting of a room sets the mood — from solemn to festive, cheerful to restful, alert to aloof. It can warm the dark corners, direct attention to the décor or the merchandise on display, or help people ignore the décor and focus on their work. The amount and placement of light sources, the brightness, color, intensity, and balance all come together to convey the room’s ambience to all who enter – to express the mood you are trying to achieve. Great lighting is all about expressive lighting.

Expressive Lighting is not just a lighting distributor; we are a complete lighting experience. We work with you on both commercial and high-end residential projects, from design to delivery and beyond, to fully express and enhance the mood of your room. We deal with designers, architects, developers, contractors, subcontractors, and building owners and managers.

Expressive started out in 1996 as a Brooklyn Lighting Distributor, operating out of a basement, but soon evolved to assist in jobs all over the country and even abroad, though we primarily focus on the New York City Metropolitan area. We quickly found the need to move the company to its own private office in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn, (just minutes from the Battery Tunnel,) complete with its own warehouses, and of course, more appropriate lighting. We are still constantly evolving and changing and always staying on top of the cutting edge of lighting styles, ideas and technologies.
