Paragon Pendant by Allied Maker

A hardwood ceiling light that favors simplicity and craftsmanship


Drawing on geometric simplicity with a heavy focus on materials and craftsmanship, Allied Maker began as the woodwork of Ryden Rizzo. Since we last checked in, the Allied Maker offerings have expanded into high-end lighting fixtures. Simple yet with a dramatic impact on any space, Rizzo’s original design values and penchant for proportional lines and considered shapes remains. The latest piece to come from the workshop—located on the northshore of Long Island in Glen Cove, NY—is the Paragon Pendant ceiling light.


Inspired by the arcing lines of interior design in the 1930s, the Paragon Pendant features subtle curves and relies on the natural grain of the wood for decorative elements. Available in oak, walnut or a blackened colorway, the prototype Paragon Pendant shown above was crafted from a single piece of wood salvaged from wreckage caused by Hurricane Sandy.

Made entirely in the USA from American-sourced hardwood, the Paragon Pendant starts at $945.
