Personalized Lighting Made in Quebec
Luminaire Authentik’s large Dome pendants illuminate LightSpeed
Satisfying a demand for bespoke lighting made in Quebec, Luminaire Authentik forms a chorus of creativity and local craftsmanship. Since launching in January 2015, the brand’s contemporary and industrial-style lamps have illuminated commercial and residential spaces across Canada and in the United States.
Designer & Entrepreneur: Maude Rondeau
At its helm is Maude Rondeau, a designer, entrepreneur and self-titled “one-woman-orchestra”. Like all good conductors know, timing is everything. When Rondeau noticed a lack of high-quality yet affordable Canadian-made lighting on the market, she set out to fill that void. Working with local partners to design, manufacture and hand-finish a range of lamps from a small workshop in the Eastern Townships, it wasn’t long before the company attracted widespread attention.
Luminaire Authentik’s portfolio includes custom lighting for Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel
Today, its portfolio includes lighting solutions for the Musée des Beaux-arts de Montréal, Hotel William Grey and the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel, among others. Originality is integral to Luminaire Authentik’s DNA—its studio is housed in a rustic schoolhouse in Bromont and its trendy pop-up truck regularly rolls through Montréal.
Contemporary and Industrial Lighting Options
Luminaire Authentik’s versatile lighting range plays with various contrasts, infusing international inspirations with French Canadian flair. Modern classics like glass ball pendant lamps juxtapose steampunk-style pipe lights, while wall mounts with a 1950s industrial touch live alongside Scandinavian-inspired floor lamps. With dozens of colour and finishing options available for the hardware, shades, canopies and wires, personalization is key—especially when it comes to colour. From matte copper to old yellow, Luminaire Authentik offers a vibrant spectrum of hues devised to suit contemporary interiors. With enhanced customization, standby fixtures like the Fulford and Newport suspension lights can be adapted to almost any space.

Meanwhile, the 72H collection is ideal for time-sensitive renovations. Every Luminaire Authentik lamp starts with a focus on clean lines, simple shapes and a 100 percent commitment to local manufacturing. From there, the lighting systems can be conveniently and cost-effectively tailored to individual needs. While Luminaire Authentik lights have since found their way across the continent, the dream was first sparked—and remains ignited—in a Quebecoise workshop. Within those walls, ingenuity, artistry and a dash of perfectionism, shine in harmony.
