Make an Artistic Statement with Light


Lighting is possibly the most powerful tool you have when it comes to interior design. Why invest in beautiful furniture, rugs, paintings and accessories if you are living in the dark? When looking for a light fixture, think of yourself as a curator looking for a perfect piece of art.

Like art, a fabulous fixture can make a strong design statement as well as provide illumination for your space. Don’t be afraid to add interest by using a modern fixture in a traditionally decorated room or vice versa. Find one special piece and build your room around it.

To light this singularly stunning family room, the homeowner ordered through us a dramatic pair of drum shades that blend into the white-on-white palette by day & emit the warmest glow by night.

Excellent lighting in the dressing room in specific & environmentally responsible decisions in the design of the house in general were both of paramount importance to this customer.

So we worked with her to find low-voltage rail lighting that would meet both criteria.
