The Minka Group first launched its collaboration with nationally recognized interior designer Robin Baron in January 2022 with a capsule collection that introduced fashion-forward lighting sconces, pendants and chandeliers in multiple sizes and in distinctive finishes. Baron added, “I believe lighting, like Jewelry, should be bold, and fabulous! My lighting designs for The Minka Group make that statement – by punctuating the space, elevating the design, and giving each room that finishing touch that homeowners crave”.

The Astor, Chelsea, Gramercy, SoHo, Sutton, Tribeca, Yorkville, NoHo, North Fork, and Watermill Collections – and many more – are each entirely unique and feature brilliant, bold style that runs throughout Baron’s entire Minka Group lighting collections.
