Family-owned and operated since 1957, Graham’s Living opened its first store in Memphis, Tenn. Founders, Dottie and Jimmy Graham along with their son, Jim Graham, got their start by hand-making exterior lanterns—now an iconic staple for historic Memphis homes. The Graham family branded their hand-fabricated copper, brass and forged steel fixtures as Fourteenth Colony in 1980. That same year, they began importing high-end, luxury light fixtures from Europe. As their business of sourcing one-of-a-kind, opulent lighting continued to grow, the Graham’s set their sights on expansion into Nashville.
In 1997, Grahams’ granddaughter, Ginger Graham Smith and her husband, Randy Smith, relocated to Nashville to open the third location for Graham’s Lighting (Now Graham’s Living). Now a third-generation family business, Graham’s has been servicing the greater Nashville area for more than 20 years.
In keeping with family tradition, Graham’s Living continues to source high-end European chandeliers – a legacy purchase for any Nashville home. Broadening its collection over the years, Graham’s Living is now home to one of the largest selections of lighting in the Southeast.
Seeing an opportunity to meet the growing needs of area residents, Graham’s Living also expanded into outdoor living in 2009, building what has also become one of the leading collections of high-end outdoor furniture in Middle Tennessee.
