Chatting with Dave Dawson from The Urban Electric Co.

Posted by


A few weeks ago I had Dave Dawson, founder and president of The Urban Electric Co. on my radio show. This year, The Urban Electric Co. celebrated their 10 year anniversary. In that time, their beautifully crafted lighting fixtures have become staple for designers, and consumers looking for distinctive traditional designs. All of the company's products are bench-made and hand-finished. In our interview, Dave and I talked about the value and importance of American made products, the growth his business has experienced over the past 10 years, and The Urban Electric Co.'s inspiring collaborations with leading designers. Listen to some clips from the show below.
