Filament, a lighting retailer in Brookfield, announced today that it will close in February, after 45 years in business.
Filament was formerly known as Lighting Associates.
The Filament brand has been acquired by Los Angeles-based Wired Custom Lighting. The owner of Filament, Donna Johnson, will become the Chicago manager for Wired Customer Lighting.
All fixtures, lamps, lamp shades, lamp parts and displays in the Filament store at 13855 W. North Ave., Brookfield, will be sold at a discount through Feb. 15.
“We are extremely grateful to have so many loyal and lovely clients all over the state,” Filament said in a news release. “We survived some severe downturns and continued to recreate ourselves to keep it fresh.”
Filament was on the vendor list for Kohler Co. and was involved renovating all of the lighting fixtures at River Bend and designing custom lampshades for multiple remodels of The American Club. Bartolotta Restaurants has used Filament to create shades and lighting fixtures for several restaurants.
