August Giveaway – Craftmade


August Giveaway: CRAFTMADE Ceiling Fan

For over past 20 years the Marra Family has brought excellence in design and quality construction. Angersteins has worked with the family on several projects where quality and value matter most in the finished product. Daughter Desiree Donofrio’s new home is this months feature. “Working with Angerstein’s was a wonderful experience, they made my dream become a true reality and to do that you need vision, love, and knowledge. We worked so hard as a team and I see it when I walk in my door.”

What began as a drab colonial has become a stunning “rustic chic” farm house that is perfect for family living. The lighting for the home was selected to bring a sense of fun and whimsy to each room, while also providing quality lighting for cooking, entertaining, reading, homework and more.

Craftmade Fans: Energy conservation and rising fuel costs make ceiling fans a natural choice when it comes to conserving our natural resources. Ceiling fans not only circulate cool air in the summer, they also help with the movement of warm air in the winter.

During the summer months, a fan operating in the normal mode can reduce how cool you feel in a room by as much as eight degrees, allowing you to raise the air conditioner’s thermostat and reduce energy costs.

In the winter, fans should be operated in reverse mode to recirculate the warm air trapped at the ceiling. For maximum energy savings, turn your fans off when you leave a room.

More than just functional appliances, today’s fans have become an important design element in homes and are available in a wide array of sizes and styles.

Angersteins July Backyard Giveaway: Kichler Lighting


Angersteins July Backyard Giveaway: Kichler Lighting & Featured Business: Peter Kate

Peter Kate, a unique shoe & clothing boutique located in beautiful Greenville Delaware was established in 2001 by Mother and Daughter entrepreneurs Kathy Savage and Sissy Harris. Angersteins has been a long time client of the family.

“As a business owner and community member I love the level of customer service at Angersteins.  says Harris. “They always have great ideas for the store as well as my home.”

When Sissy Harris and Kathy Savage decided to expand the existing store, they came to Angersteins to design the lighting. They wanted to create layers of light that would feature the clothing well, and enhance the look and feel of the store.

Products featured at Peter Kate: LumTech low voltage track lighting and Contrast low voltage recessed lighting with LED lamps. Crystorama & Hudson Valley Decorative lighting.

Angersteins Retail Lighting

Sandy Conley, manager of Angerstein’s Lighting, “LED lighting is both effective and efficient for a retail setting. The high light output, 75% energy-savings, long life and full dimming capability make it an excellent replacement for the PAR halogen lamps. We use the Solais LED lamps at Peter Kate, as well as many other churches, art galleries and retail stores with outstanding results.”

Spring Patio Furniture SALE!


As the winter snow melts away and warmer temperatures beckon you outside, you may realize your outdoor living space is in need of an upgrade.  Shop our Patio Sale – starting April 1st!

Patio Furniture Sale

Clean it up
Bite the bullet and give your outdoor space a good scrub. Empty out the dead plants into your compost pile, put away the snow shovel and wipe down the furniture.

If you have an awning or an umbrella, first brush off any loose dirt and hose it down. Prepare a cleaning solution of water and mild soap such as Woolite or Dawn dishwashing liquid and use a soft bristle brush to clean the fabric. Let the cleaning solution sink into the fabric, thoroughly rinse and air dry. You’ll be surprised at how much impact a simple spring clean can have on your outdoor space.

Care: Outdoor fabric is meant to be left outside, but it isn’t maintenance-free. Try to keep cushions, umbrellas, and pillows out of direct downpours, and they’ll have a longer life span. If items get soaked, lean them upright against a wall, and allow all the moisture to drain out. To spot clean, dip a rag in a solution of two parts bleach and one part water, and then wipe items clean. Mold and mildew stick to dirt, so shake out cushions often to get rid of dust, pollen, and dirt. If absolutely necessary, machine-wash cushion and pillow covers in cold water, and line dry.

Never put acrylic fabric in a dryer; it will melt.

The Pettinaro Family Shops Angersteins


The Pettinaro Family have all worked with Angersteins over the years. This month we thank them for their years of dedication from one family owned Wilmington business to another.

Kristen and Sandy worked with Stephen Mottola and Cindy Wilkinson on the lighting design of her home.  Cindy’s design philosophy of “Art does not have to match the furniture” and the contents of one’s home should never be themed or matchy matchy; instead there should be an elegant and cohesiveness design that ebbs and flows in a well balanced and harmonious rhythm throughout the entire home.

Angersteins also worked with Cindy to select the outdoor furniture and fireplaces around her pool area.
