Ames Ingham
Born and raised in New York City, Ingham moved to Los Angles after graduating from the Claremont Colleges where she studied theater. Ingham's love for interiors first translated into set design, allowing her imagination and love for design to thrive. Ingham co-founded and ran a theater company for ten years, an experience that solidified her passion for creating spaces as well as discovering the importance of lighting in an environment. Designing for the theater world progressed to designing real homes. Assisting such interior legends as Suzanne Rheinstein and Joe Nye, Ingham found her true expression in interior design. This led to Ingham's namesake boutique in West Hollywood from 2006-2009, a flagship for her eclectic colorful look - a mix of antiques & modern finds, and bold graphic patterns. While working on interiors and sourcing pieces for her own shop, Ingham found it difficult to find one of the most important elements: good lighting. Therefore she began creating her own custom pieces for her clients, and a new journey began. The first design was called the Ingham Hall Lantern, a steel and glass box with a single downward light on a French chain - a classic and universal design that generated a whole collection. Each fixture is hand crafted by artisans in Los Angeles, and are available in custom sizes and finishes. The collection is available through the Ames Ingham website and Harbinger LA.
