Cassidy Brush’s career took an unplanned turn one day in fall of 2011 when the fashion industry sales executive needed a lighting fixture that for her Brooklyn office. She couldn’t find one that met her vision of what she wanted so she designed and built an industrial-funky fixture out of a piece of 20 inch by 30 inch reclaimed plywood which she stained ebony and from which she hung 18 antique light bulbs. Cassidy called it an “Urban Chandy.” Little did the self-taught chandelier designer-builder know at the time that her unique chandelier would lead her into a new career as a lighting fixture entrepreneur. Today Urban Chandy fixtures are designed and made in Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill using a variety of rescued and reclaimed wood and other materials with a wide range of antique and Edison bulbs in the company’s Clinton Hill studio in Brooklyn.
