Largo, Fla.-based artwork, mirrors, and wallcoverings manufacturer Wendover Art Group has acquired domestic lighting manufacturer Lowcountry Originals, based in Bluffton, South Carolina.
Lowcountry Originals has served the luxury lighting market since 2009. The company’s lighting and home decor products are made-to-order and customizable. Becky Brackett, company founder, will continue to lead in the design, development, and expansion of the products.
“Richard Forsyth and his experienced team are a perfect match to take Lowcountry Originals to the next level of luxury in the design, commercial, and hospitality industries,” says Becky Brackett. “The high-quality manufacturing process, aesthetic, and long-term success is what attracted me to Wendover. The passion, energy, and quality of this company is fascinating. I am thrilled to have Lowcountry Originals be part of that new vision of artisan lighting and art together.”
Adds Wendover CEO Richard Forsyth, “We fell in love with Lowcountry Originals upon introduction and knew this was a natural fit. Like Wendover, Lowcountry Originals offers luxurious, hand-crafted, domestically manufactured, and custom-made pieces. This partnership will allow for an expanded product offering, and strong manufacturing footprint within the lighting, sculpture and bedswing categories—allowing Wendover and Lowcountry Originals to serve our customers better and drive strong continued growth.”
The acquisition includes The Light Post Boutique, a premier lighting showroom in Bluffton and home to Lowcountry Originals—where the custom lighting first came to life. The lighting boutique is ready to expand under the umbrella of Wendover Art Group.
