History

Eangee Home Design first opened its doors as a retail outlet for our imports in November of 2003. The inspiration was a gecko lamp discovered by one of the owners while vacationing in the Philippines. After striking up a conversation with the owner and creator of the lamp, he returned to the US and shared his idea with two others and they opened a small store. By January 2007, we realized our potential as a distributor and began our wholesale efforts. Today Eangee is wholesale focused, having sold its retail arm at the end of 2007. We are now a company of four committed owners, and like with our manufacturers, we each bring unique skills and ideas to the table, catapulting the company forward while remaining true to our core values. Starting in retail laid the foundation of how we handle customer service. We understand the needs of retailers and we understand what customers want as well. We strive to continue our great customer service by being open and honest with whomever we are talking to, as well as, providing as much information as we can through our website and other means.

Lighting

The foundation of the company has been our lamps. Over the years these have evolved to their current form, full of vibrant colors and unique leaf types. We have developed a technique that offers brilliant colors, high quality, and great durability.

Accessories

Since our wholesale debut, we have been on the search of other items that would complement our collection and have expanded in the accessories department. We have discovered a wide variety of materials from driftwood, to recycled paper, to various recycled metals that are transformed into works of art by talented artisans.

Furniture

Eangee is now moving forward on expanding the selection of this department as well. We started in 2013 with a few very unique occasional tables, but that is just the beginning. We have expanded our warehouse in order to accommodate new ideas in furniture and will expand this greatly over the next few years.
