Forecast Lighting was founded in Southern California in the early 1970's. From the very beginning, Forecast focused on developing contemporary lighting designs that were distinctive from the competition. These designs were generated by constantly seeking customer feedback as well as a careful analysis of the trends of the day in home décor.
In 1992, Lightolier acquired Forecast and relocated the company to their current headquarters in Elgin, IL.
Four decades after founding, Forecast continues to build on their unique legacy as a customer focused brand delivering exceptionally well styled products at attractive prices. They have also pioneered many breakthrough concepts, from coordinated glass to entirely new ways to illuminate bath spaces.
