The Montauk Lighting Co. was born from a love of transitional American interiors. The style of lighting is inspired by the architecture of New York City and in particular, the Hamptons. The name is taken from that very area - you’ll find Montauk at the tip of Long Island.
The Montauk Lighting Co. was established in 2016 after identifying a gap in the Australian market for distinctive, high quality lighting. We are excited to bring that offering to Australia for both residential and commercial projects and are pleased to ship the lighting Australia-wide.
The Montauk Lighting Co. provides a lighting consultancy service that aims to take the work out of finding the perfect lighting and designing well lit spaces. Our passion is working with clients individually to understand the look and feel they want to achieve. We aim to narrow the selection of lighting down to a manageable size, so that our clients have fewer and better options to consider. We also help work through lighting plans and suggest edits and revisions as required.
Currently, we are proud to be stocking an extensive range of Visual Comfort & Co. products into Australia, wired specifically for the Australian market. Since 1987, Visual Comfort & Co. has been the premier resource for signature designer lighting in the USA. For nearly 30 years, Visual Comfort has produced lighting with some of the most influential names in design using natural materials of exceptional quality and distinctive, hand-applied, living finishes. Visual Comfort offers a broad assortment of lighting featuring many prominent designs synonymous with high style and functionality.
In addition, we have recently added Heathfield & Co and Lee Broom, both from the UK, to the product range.
Husband and wife duo Gino Premici and Marie Botsis-Premici are the force behind The Montauk Lighting Co. The couple share a love of architecture, travel and design. They are no strangers to building projects, having undertaken renovations and new home builds as owner-builders.
You can read about these projects online - the Art Deco renovation on the wonderful House Nerd blog, and their journey as owner-builders on the Brick By Brick Facebook page.
Gino brings over twenty years of marketing and management experience to The Montauk Lighting Co. With previous roles spanning various industries including fashion retail marketing and ecommerce, his current role as General Manager at Home Base in Subiaco sees him revelling in all things home and interiors. Given his father has been a bricklayer and building supervisor for over 45 years, it's pretty much in his blood.
Gino has a passion for design - the visual and the built-form. He's a little obsessed with fonts and his love of branding has evolved through assisting many companies reposition themselves in the marketplace.
Marie is an experienced commercial lawyer, having advised major property developers on commercial and residential property developments. She loves the development industry and the sense of having contributed to ‘getting a project out of the ground’, building something tangible and leaving a legacy.
But Marie’s favourite times are her overseas trips, where she takes inspiration from discovering new places and the way different cultures create unique spaces. Marie is always looking up – never wanting to miss the lights.
