Summer…if we could bottle it up!

Internship Continues to Shine!

The Quoizel internship program began in 2011 and continues to grow each year, welcoming new and returning interns who are gaining great work experience. This program has opened doors to many past students including Carter Gerard & Eric Lee, who both saw their own designs come to life in a handful of new introductions back in January.

This year, Xiaowen Shao, Hima Tadimeti and Aditi Vyas will be working with Quoizel’s Peter Cox until the end of August doing research, analyzing sales and trends and working on new designs.

Where Is Quoizel??

When we think of Quoizel, we think of timeless pieces created for our homes. However, more and more Quoizel lighting is popping up in unfamiliar places and spaces. Adding an interesting fixture where one might not initially think to do so can take a space to a whole new level.

First impressions are lasting impressions! Adding sleek, sophisticated lighting fixtures to your office lobby will impress visitors as soon as they walk in. A glamorous chandelier will immediately bring their eyes up and make your space seem larger and more open. This Downtown chandelier (left) is elegant and cool, featuring a shiny chrome finish and opal etched glass drum shade. The shine from the glass ball accent adds some sparkle to this simple fixture making it a piece of artwork in itself and allows it to pop off of the refreshing green hue of the rest of the space. Adding pendants above an end table stands out because they’re typically used over a kitchen table or island. These Emery pendants are a seamless addition to this space (right). The chrome of the chandelier marries beautifully with the space’s other metallic accents and provides the perfect amount of light to anyone using the seating area.

What time is it? Renovation time!

That little window of time after the holidays and before summer…it’s renovation time!

Whether you hire a contractor, tackle a DIY project or a little bit of both…updating a room, especially a kitchen, may seem daunting.  But seeing the space come together makes all the trials and tribulations well worth it.

This South Carolina couple kept the original floor plan of their existing kitchen, but needed to restore the outdated stained cabinets and remove the old-fashioned popcorn ceiling.

Clean, airy looks are very popular in today’s home decor, which is why pendants have become so desirable.

Pendants offer pops of color and illumination at eye level and provide task lighting for food preparation and cleaning while providing visual coziness by bringing the light down to where people are sitting or standing. Pendants are among the easiest and most economical fixture to change, and with such a wide variety of pendants from contemporary to traditional, Quoizel offers a pendant for every personality.
