What’s Trending?

At this year’s June Dallas Market, Rick Seidman, President & CEO of Quoizel, sat down with Samantha Hart, Group Editor from Luxury Home Portfolio, Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, in the Quoizel showroom to discuss top trends in today’s lighting.

Samantha points out that a popular trend in today’s lighting is modern-glamour.  Rick, referring to Quoizel’s Platinum Collection, explains that this “new look is fresh, updated.  It’s fun, and we are thrilled that this line is growing like crazy for us.” Rick states that Quoizel’s design team visited jewelry stores to get inspiration.  He shows examples of this with collections that are “jewelry for the home” such as Crescent and Sylvan as well as the use of integrated LED technology in the Radiance collection.

Congratulations to the Award Winners!

We want to give a big “shout out” to two special accounts featured in this month’s Enlightenment magazine!

Each year this magazine honors a few individuals in the lighting industry during the Legends, Leaders & Luminaries awards series. Nominated by their peers, these recipients lead by example, stand out in their field and inspire others.

Joan Kleinberg, founder of Elements at Home and a Legend Retailer according to Enlightenment, has been in the lighting industry for 42 years. Joan along with her son Brian, expanded their Long Island, NY lighting showroom to a “lifestyle” location. Their extremely large showroom had the huge honor of being nominated five times for the ARTS Awards for best Lighting Fixture Manufacturer, and they won the award three times!
