“Remains Lighting represents all that we stand for—American craftsmanship, environmental consciousness, and embracing diverse styles,” says Roman Alonso, a founder of the Los Angeles design firm Commune, which worked with Remains on a line of lamps, sconces, and ceiling fixtures.

Reflecting Commune’s sophisticated eclecticism, the collection takes cues from the Vienna Secession as well as French and Milanese modernist design. “We like to mix and mash historical references—it’s a California thing,” says Steven Johanknecht, another Commune partner.
Handcrafted in Remains’ LEED-certified Brooklyn factory, the ten pieces come in polished-brass, nickel, or waxed-bronze finishes, and most are available with optional detailing based on Commune’s signature Slash pattern. “The finishes aren’t lacquered,” says Alonso. “We welcome a natural patina.”
