French Market Lighting works closely with our vendors to seek products that place a premium on style, quality and value. While our new showroom in The Woodlands opened in the summer of 2011, French Market Lighting was founded in the heart of New Orleans as Lagniappe Lighting in 2002. Jeff Ber, representing the third generation of his family in the lighting industry, opened this new business with a focus on selling handmade lanterns.
