Here’s a glamorous twist on an old theme: our new Tissage Dining Table is made up of interwoven metal curves, which create a sculptural center point underneath the table’s floating glass top.
The Tissage Dining Table measures 36″ diameter by 29″ high, and is shown with a 54″ diameter top with a 1″ beveled edge. It is finished in Distressed gold leaf.
The Swedish Lantern, inspired by a 19th century Scandinavian antique, is our newest lighting introduction. We stripped down the superfluous details and decorations of the original to arrive at this simple balance of circles and lines.
The lantern has six lights, and measures 15″ wide by 15″ deep by 26.25″ high. It is shown in our Pavilion gold leaf finish.
It’s hard to fit a glamorous chandelier in a room with eight foot ceilings. We designed the simple metal framework of our Madeleine Ceiling Fixture to fit into such a space, and then finished it in gleaming gold leaf and dripping with shining glass beads. It may be small, but its presence is mightily alluring.
The Madeleine Ceiling Fixture measures 21″ in diameter by 13″ high, and is shown in our French gold leaf finish.
The importance of goods made in America has become more and more important lately as we are all adjusting to the changes in the world’s economies. In light of that, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the Manufacturing Institute are launching the inaugural Manufacturing Day on October 5 to promote awareness of American jobs across the field and across the country.
We have made our headquarters in Maryland since 1984, and have featured in some articles in Maryland publications. Eleanor McKay, co-founder of Niermann Weeks and wife of Joe Niermann, was recently interviewed by Nick Sohr of Maryland Biz News. She spoke about the history of Niermann Weeks, from our start in the garage behind the family home in Memphis, TN in 1978, to the projects we’re working on in our present day studios outside Annapolis, MD. The full article is on their website, and the video interview is available below.
The Capital newspaper of Annapolis, MD just ran an article on the wide variety of local manufacturers in our home Anne Arundel county and neighboring Queen Anne’s county. We are part of a wide range of hands-on makers of goods ranging from aprons by Mama’s Apron Strings to guitars by Paul Reed Smith to stainless steel toy rings by Kleynimals.
We are thrilled to see the renewed focus on American made products, and are proud to be have been part of that tradition for the last 34 years.
Our Caronia Table Lamp shines beautifully thanks to its faceted base of mirrors in antiqued gold leaf. The lamp is shown in our French gold leaf finish, and it measures 6″ wide by 6″ deep by 24″ high with a 12″ drum shade in ivory linen.
Our new Sofie Cocktail Table revives French Moderne design for modern living. The stirrup stretcher sturdily anchors the table base, and we developed a new gold leaf finish based on the beautifully aged gold leaf finish of an antique gilded bronze finial from our collection of objects & artifacts. We recreated that finish on this new table base, and topped it with a strikingly glamorous inset black glass top.
The Sofie Cocktail Table measures 48″ wide by 24″ deep by 20″ high, and is finished in our French gold leaf.
The Palissy Ceiling Fixture, whose shape is reminiscent of an eternity ring, features silver leaf glass tubes and a disk of antiqued mirror surrounding four lights. This fixture measures 14 ½ diameter by 9” high, with four lights, and is shown in our Distressed gold leaf finish.

We are ringing in the new year with the Redfern Chandelier, our adorable first lighting introduction for 2012! Joe Niermann found an antique chandelier made of ice tongs with floral iron embellishments in an antique shop years ago, and he kept the curved forms in the back of his head. With more requests for smaller fixtures, we thought it was the perfect time to pull this idea to the front with the creation of the Redfern Chandelier.
The fixture has six lights, measures 21.5 diameter by 19 high, and is shown in our Parisian gold leaf finish.
The curving spoon back of our new Marsan Side Chair is enhanced with hand-turned knobs at the seat and by a slight break in the legs’ line. This elegant profile provides comfortable support as a dining or occasional chair, and the subtle carved details keeps the eye’s focus on the architectural symmetry of the design.
The chair measures 21.5”w x 26.5”d x 40.5h”, and is shown in our Carelian walnut finish.
The elegant legs of our Scroll Console connect in inter-arching curves of hand-forged steel. We highlighted the metal base with a faux gilded bronze finish, and painted the planked wooden top in our well-worn Polonaise white finish. The console measures 50.75” wide by 25.75” deep by 32.5” high.

Niermann Weeks introduces the Zinc Lantern. We took the basic design of our Zinc Wall Lantern and translated it into a classicaly proportioned hanging lantern. We included details from the original antique such as the head of Mercury and perforated top gallery, then took our inspiration for the painted zinc finish from an antique French watering can.
