The Impex showroom is based at our Head Office in St Albans, Hertfordshire, where customers are welcome to visit by appointment only. The brand's origins date back to the history of Schonbek lighting. In 1870, in Bohemia, Adolph Schonbek started his own glassworks and soon began manufacturing complete glass chandeliers. His Grandsons, Arnold Schonbek and Henry Blake joined the family business and eventually took over the running of the business. The control and ownership of the Czechoslovakian factory was lost during the Second World War and Arnold eventually re-established his company in Montreal and eventually moved to America, while Henry moved to London and established his company Impex in 1946. In 1967, Henry’s son Michael joined the business.
