For over two decades, Carolyn Kinder has been designing and developing innovative collections for the home furnishings industry.  Carolyn has an established reputation that has become synonymous with class and timeless design.  What could be better than partnering with Quoizel who has created timeless designs since 1930.

Quoizel introduced 32 styles from Carolyn Kinder at the January Dallas Market, all of which were very well-received.

The Aruba series is a new edition to Quoizel’s Naturals Collection, which has an open-weave bamboo shade with an inner paper shade and a painted bronze finish.  The inner shade diffuses the light for a warm glow.

How many people does it take to change a light bulb?

Although this may seem like a joke, changing a light bulb isn’t so simple these days!!  With so many choices, choosing the right light bulb has become a complicated task.

First things first when heading to your local hardware store is to make a list of the light bulbs that you need and the area you want to light.  Is this for an outdoor lantern, reading light, kitchen fixture, or a dimmable fixture, etc.

The next thing is to know what type of bulb to buy for the area you want to light. 

Incandescent.  The one that Thomas Edison perfected, which is the most popular and well-known light bulb in use is prized for its warm color.  Drawbacks of this bulb include low efficiency, high heat generation and fragility.
