In 1923, at the crossroads of what was then two dirt thoroughfares in the heart of downtown Columbia, South Carolina, Kline Iron & Steel Co. was formed. Throughout the 20th century, they pioneered the building of large scale steel structures including the famed Sutro Tower located in the hills of San Francisco. Even as their worldwide reputation grew, the company remained headquartered on that same, now paved, street corner as a pillar of the Columbia manufacturing community. From our company’s inception we painstakingly sourced USA made components to produce our quality light fixtures and this included Kline steel. Our Kline Collection pays tribute to the metal-engineering feats of our neighboring manufacturer with strong, lean lines in a modern industrial shape.
