Heritage Lanterns originated in Boston and eventually made it’s way to Yarmouth, Maine in 1979. Craig Gustafson ran the business out of a small manufacturing building with a crew of around six artisans. His daughter Karla began managing operations when her father decided to retire in late 2000. In early 2013, Heritage downsized and Karla sold the business.
The building in Yarmouth has closed, however in an effort to continue the Heritage legacy they partnered with New England craftsmen to handcraft their lighting fixtures. ecm design was hired to create a content managed, mobile-friendly, e-commerce website where Heritage could sell their fixtures online and people could admire the quality and dedication put into each and every piece.
