My Grandfather, B.L. Guess Jr. started our company in 1947. As an electrical engineer, he knew the importance of using different types of lighting throughout the home to create a "task oriented", as well as a "relaxed setting" lighting plan. I remember that he used indirect fluorescent lighting as well as low-voltage recessed fixtures throughout the house. He went "GREEN" and he didn't even know it! He also made solid copper landscape lighting fixtures that used 12 volt automotive bulbs for the exterior of his home. Those fixtures are still being used today by my father. Yes, he was ahead of his time in the lighting world, and I wish he were alive today to see all the magnificent changes that have been made in the lighting industry. When my Father, B.L."Chip" Guess III came into the business, the "design" aspect of lighting peaked his interest. With lighting being imported from all over the world now, this was the perfect time to change the face of B.L. Guess Lighting co. Along with my Grandmother, Mrs. B.L. Guess Jr. (Ripple), they purchased decorative lighting and accessories from all over the globe. And today, I, B.L."Rip" Guess IV wants to continue the tradition by providing unique lighting to our customers at a fair price with outstanding service.
