What We Do

Wolfers Lighting is Greater Boston’s top lighting resource for home and business owners, architects, interior designers, builders, electricians, and other trade professionals. Established in 1931, we apply our longstanding experience and in-depth knowledge of lighting products, industry trends, and latest technologies to create customized lighting solutions for our clients.

We understand lighting, its intricacies and its potential. Lighting is our passion. It’s what we do every day and what we love – the creativity, the design, even the technical challenges. Whether it’s new construction or renovation, residential or commercial, large or small, we work collaboratively with all members of the construction team to create a lighting plan that perfectly suits the project.

Our Process

At Wolfers, we start at the beginning. We take the time to get to know the client and fully understand the scope of the project. We work together towards achieving a plan that enhances the architecture and interior of the space, meets all visual acuity concerns, utilizes energy efficient light sources, and meets all budget and time parameters.

First, we work diligently with our clients to develop an overall conceptual design. From there, we specify architectural lighting such as recessed light fixtures, and assist our clients in selecting their decorative lighting. Our expert lighting consultants provide recommendations for light fixture placement and lighting controls, and collaborate with the builder or electrician to ensure any technical challenges have been resolved. Along with their extensive knowledge, our experienced team uses the resources of our unique lighting labs and displays so that the client can explore all options to achieve a creative yet functional lighting design.

More than Lighting

Thanks to our 2017 merger with System 7 and The Boston Shade Company, Wolfers also offers technology design services and automated shading. System 7’s diverse team of architects and technical gurus collaborate with leading trade professionals and homeowners to design, install, and support only the most simple, reliable, and aesthetically pleasing technology systems for their distinguished clients. The Boston Shade Company is New England’s leading supplier of customized and motorized residential window treatments, offering professional design, installation, and support services. Together, we’re three distinct brands working to deliver state-of-the-art solutions, innovative products, and premier service to the most discriminating homeowners in New England.

Our Commitment

Here at Wolfers Lighting, we realize the importance of giving back to a community that has allowed us to thrive for almost a century. By donating to organizations like Habitat for Humanity and the Ronald McDonald house to educating industry professionals and design/trade students with our seminars, we continue to express our gratitude to the Greater Boston Area. Since the advent of the popularization of electric lighting, and now in the face of rapidly changing LED technologies, we have been Boston’s #1 resource for technical advancement in the home. We are proud to have been the first company to light the Custom House Clock in Faneuil Hall, and historically to have refurbished and redesigned the beautiful chandeliers featured in the Wang Theater and the Waterfront Boston Marriott. The legacy of our founder, Henry L. Wolfers, still lives on today through our honesty, integrity, and unwavering dedication to customer satisfaction.
