Seminar Series: 14th Colony Lighting Shines at The Grove


A one-of-a-kind home deserves one-of-a-kind lighting.

14th Colony Lighting began in 1957 in the small Memphis home of James and Dottie Graham. James would come home after work and craft lights for Dottie to sell, and 59 years later, the hard work and dedication of James and Dottie would transform 14th Colony Lighting into a permanent fixture not only in Tennessee but also throughout the country. 14th Colony fixtures can even be found in the U.S. Capitol building as well as many celebrities’ residences.

Today, the Graham’s operate retail showrooms in Tennessee and two wholesale channels that feature domestic manufacturing and fine quality imported fixtures from Europe and around the world. What sets 14th Colony apart is their dedication to the traditional techniques that have been passed down through the Graham family for generations.

“Our light fixtures are entirely hand-made by the tinsmiths and blacksmiths who train and work in our shop. No structural component in or on any of our lights is imported. We are one of the last lighting manufacturers to actually employ traditional metalsmithing techniques in our fabrication process from start to finish,” explains Ginger Graham Smith of 14th Colony Lighting.

14th Colony Lighting also includes a selection of Outdoor Living products of the highest quality that serve as the perfect complement to their selection of handcrafted lighting options.

The Graham’s tireless pursuit of perfection and dedication to using only the finest materials— whether handcrafting their light fixtures, or while designing complementary outdoor spaces that make them the perfect choice creating the spectacular outdoor living spaces on our Showcase Home.

We are very excited to watch all the special features of the outdoor living space come together! Stay tuned for more on what Ginger Graham Smith and 14th Colony Lighting have on the horizon for our Showcase Home.
