Across lakes and over oceans, tucked into the sloping hill of a Mediterranean village, artisans deftly maneuver rivulets of melting glass. Masters of an art form founded by their ancestors, these latter day Phoenicians are the glass blowers of the modern world. This is BAHIR, where ancestral glassmaking traditions meet pioneering innovation, transporting the Mediterranean to Minneapolis–Saint Paul. Derived from the word Nehir, meaning light in ancient Hebrew, BAHIR was founded by veteran oriental furnishings importer Kurosh Amrami. Initiated at the age of six into his family’s exotic carpet business, Amrami accompanied his father from province to province, studying each creation’s construction and provenance. Now, primed by decades of amassed expertise, Amrami combs through artisanal ateliers, handpicking glass masterpieces. With his current selection comprised exclusively of elegant glass lighting and décor he brings you his unparalleled selection that is: BAHIR. Enveloped in a hospitable, warm and colorful ambiance, clients are invited to pick the perfect Mediterranean glass for their imagined light-scape. Next, our team of experts goes to work, customizing every handcrafted detail until each client’s vision has been achieved. The final result is a mélange of sophisticated, elegant, delicate glass melting into rich hues of light and shadow that captures our clients’ dreams.

This Chandelier from Bahir Lighting was the highlight of the master bath!! absolutely Gorgeous! It is truly a statement piece in this gorgeous mid-century modern.
Customer through our interior design consultant.
After shopping for pendant lighting in a large number of lighting stores and not finding exactly what we wanted, we happened on Bahir by chance. As we walked through the door, we saw exactly what we wanted in 10 seconds. They were very helpful in ordering the lighting and assuring us that it would hang well and all the needed hardware would be included. The lights arrived in the specified time frame and were very well packed to insure against breakage. The light fixture is beautiful as is hangs over our kitchen island. We have tried to take photos, but our camera savvy is lacking. Suffice to say that we are thrilled with the change the lighting has made in our condo. If we consider more lighting changes in the future, Bahir will be on our short list for stunning, unique lighting.
I had the pleasure of working with Bahir Custom Lighting on a very high-end Gallery project this past summer. The selection of custom lights are absolutely gorgeous and I was able to find five separate light fixtures from their different collections to use in the space. Each fixture was unique and definitely added that WOW factor to the Gallery! Kurosh was exceptional to work with and helped take our vision and bring it to life. The fixtures in the space are one of the most talked about elements and we get nothing but oohs and aahs.
Bahir has exceptionally unique and beautiful light fixtures. A great value for the quality of the product we received. I would recommend them to any of my clients.
