Back to School Cool…!!

Although a very different story than Rodney Dangerfield’s shenanigans in Back to School, Quoizel’s President & CEO, Rick Seidman, heads to Clemson to further his education!

Rick’s story can be found on Clemson’s MBA website where he is quoted as saying “My MBA experience at Clemson has been a life- changing event.”  He continues to say “My high school and undergraduate college experiences were driven by my desire to achieve high grades to first get into college and then to get a good job with a top firm.  In stark contrast, my reason for going for an MBA was to gain knowledge.”  And gain knowledge he has!  He has also shared and implemented many of the concepts he has learned with his teams at Quoizel.


Wishing Everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Quoizel will be closed Thursday, November 26th and Friday, November 27th in observance of Thanksgiving.

Their offices will reopen on Monday, November 30th 8:30 EST.

Fun Fact… The first Thanksgiving took place at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1621 with the pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians; it lasted three days!  That’s a lot of eating!!

Hoping wherever you celebrate, that you are surrounded by family and friends.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

I LOVE NY aka Newbury!

Although we do LOVE New York, the NY stands for Newbury in this case!

Did you know that since its introduction in 1993, Quoizel has sold over 2.5 MILLION Newbury fixtures?!  Yes, 2.5 MILLION!!  Wow, that’s a lot of Newbury fixtures, and luckily enough, our customers still cannot get enough of them.

The classic design of the Newbury gives the outside of your home a rich elegance without looking over embellished. Its versatile look that coordinates with most any architectural style is what has kept this fixture’s popularity. It is available in a variety of finishes with clear beveled glass. New to this collection…It is now also available with clear seedy glass in Mystic Black, Pewter and Medici Bronze finishes.


Who Remembers the Tour de Tiffany?

The Quoizel Tour de Tiffany traveling show was an epic event!

Talk about Creating a Kaleidscope of Stained Glass…when an unassuming 80-foot trailer pulled up, the lighting store had hundreds of Tiffany styles at their fingertips!  Some accounts would have this sales event annually, and customers would be lined up before the store opened to be the first one to glance at an original Louis Comfort Tiffany.  Usually a scheduled 3-day event, it would be one of the biggest sales of the year, and would be promoted with a large advertising campaign and supported with much fanfare.  It was not uncommon to serve food and soft drinks to keep the consumers shopping.
