Todd Pearsall, Owner
Known for his exceptional design sense and original lighting ideas, Todd is a respected leader in lighting design in the Twin Cities. After an extensive, twenty-year career working with residential and commercial projects throughout the Midwest, Todd opened the doors of Filament Lighting & Home in 1998. Todd and the staff at Filament quickly became known for pushing the trends of contemporary lighting fixtures and bringing a new level of artistry to multi-dimensional lit spaces. Todd begins each project getting to know his clients’ tastes, their preferences and the flow of their daily lives. This collaborative process results in thoughtful, one-of-a-kind lighting design that brings both harmony and energy to his clients’ living spaces.
In 2012, Todd made a joyful addition to his life when he adopted his daughter Ruby. You may catch her shyly peeking around the corner at Filament or perched in dad’s arms at events around town.
