Since our founding in 1932, Wolfers Lighting has endeavored to provide customers with innovative and effective lighting solutions.

Of course, a lot has changed in lighting since the 1930s. LEDs didn't exist back then, and even the "modern" incandescent light was only a couple of decades old. (Here's a great visual timeline of lighting milestones.)

The key to longevity in any business is the ability to evolve, and that's something we've done at Wolfers every step of the way.

Every customer who walks through our doors can count on…

  • A friendly, professional lighting consultant who's happy to discuss projects large and small. Whether you're choosing a couple of sconces for your second-floor bath or you need someone to create a thorough lighting plan for your new house that's breaking ground in a couple of months, our experts can help.
  • A wide selection of quality lighting products from respected manufacturers and lighting designers across the globe.
  • Interactive lighting labs that aim to educate you on the evolving nature of lights, specifically LEDs. LED is still a new and intimidating technology for homeowners, designers, and some contractors. Because certain LED fixtures use different dimming protocols, some dimmers will not work with these fixtures. We do the legwork for you and can help specify the right dimmer for your new fixture.
  • A comfortable place to try out lights in different settings so you can get a feel for how different fixtures might work in your home or office.

But, honestly, at the end of the day, the most important thing you'll experience when you walk through our doors is our people. Our incredible employees have dedicated their professional lives to the lighting industry. 

Meet Susan Arnold from our Waltham Lighting Showroom

Susan has over twenty-plus years of experience. When it comes to choosing lighting, she says it's all about "how you live your life with lighting."

Susan's goal is to help you select the right products for your space so you can achieve the vibe you're going for. Listen to what Susan has to say in the short video below. (And be sure to check out our article on the upcoming season of This Old House where Susan serves as a lighting consultant.)

Meet Joe Powers from our Allston Lighting Showroom

A licensed electrician for many years, Joe brings over 25 years' worth of experience to Wolfers. As he says, "Your lighting is everything. You have a beautiful home, beautiful cabinets, beautiful decorative pieces in your house, it doesn't do you any good if you don't light them."

Joe is especially knowledgeable about home controls (e.g. controlling lighting remotely, along with other things). Hear what he has to say in the video below.
