A Wildwood Brand
In 1923, a Chicago artist, Frederick Cooper, established a studio to create beautiful sculptures and watercolor paintings. American architecture was in its heyday in the Windy City. Mr. Cooper was drawn to the still fairly new invention of lamps. By mixing brass, fabric, glass, and wood media, Cooper created exquisitely designed lamps that matched the swift innovation in American architecture. This heritage continues today with designs at the forefront of style and fashion. We create the most artistic designs using exquisite materials and superior craftsmanship.
Quite simply, we design and create illuminated art. We use the finest natural materials – brass, bronze, nickel, copper, marble, jade, and alabaster – and create art glaze ceramics, hand-decorated porcelain, and crystal.
Our design committee is in unfettered pursuit of the broadest array of styles – refreshed traditional to transitional with classic lines. These include Deco, Nouveau, Cubist, and Organic – clean and elaborate. We have design collaborations with Larry Laslo, Mario Buatta, Alexander Julian, John Mascheroni, and Joann Barwick. Starting from our designers’ ideas, renderings, and drawings, Frederick Cooper’s global network of committed artisans create heirloom quality lamps. We carefully select a luxurious fabric to shade each lamp base. Our signature Frederick Cooper shades are peerless in execution. Unmatched quality is the core of our business.
Frederick Cooper was acquired by Wildwood in 2011 – allowing the combined brands to offer coordinated shipping and convenient customer service. Our attentive sales representatives and customer service department can satisfy your needs from product availability, order status, contract, and custom quotes.
Our collection is on display for the trade in High Point, North Carolina – where we launch new products each spring and fall. Our showroom is located at 200 North Hamilton Street. We look forward to working with you and continuing Frederick Cooper’s illuminating vision.
