The Luminaire was founded by Interior Designer Rick Grett to help clients seeking residential lighting and relamping services. With the new federal minimum energy efficiency standards for lighting,
Rick began to recognize that clients were uncertain about the availability of light bulbs and how that would impact the lighting environment of their homes. He also saw that advances in technology could offer clients improvements in aesthetics, convenience, and energy efficiency.
After earning his Interior Design degree from The University of Texas at Austin in 1972, Rick Grett began working with design firms in Texas and California. In 1987, he created Richard Lee Grett Interiors. Working primarily with residential clients (from Houston to Cape Cod to London), Rick's involvement in designing and managing projects frequently includes creating architectural backgrounds, space planning, and specifying/procuring furnishings, art, and accessories.
For some 20 years now, Rick Grett’s clients have sought his expertise and guidance with interior lighting. His extensive training and experience in residential illumination – along with a keen understanding of cutting edge technologies – has enabled Rick to offer lighting solutions that truly enhance his clients’ homes.
