The Minka Group has grown to become a leader in the decorative lighting industry. In 1954, George Kovacs opened a small store in Manhattan, importing modern and avant-garde lighting, revolutionizing the landscape of design and illumination. Staying ahead of trends and frequently propelling the appreciation of modern interior design within the US, catapulted the success of the George Kovacs brand well into the early 2000s. In 2002, George Kovacs Lighting was licensed to The Minka Group and continues to be the benchmark of design technology and superior contemporary style. Inside and out, George Kovacs continues to light the way with cutting-edge, premium quality, contemporary lighting at a value-driven price.
