It’s Throwback Thursday!!

Wall fixtures are an extremely convenient and effective solution for providing additional illumination in rooms where there isn’t a lot of space for table or floor lamps. Dimmable wall-mounted fixtures are also a handy solution for bedrooms, entertainment rooms, powder rooms and hallways.

Quoizel introduced these wall fixtures in 1990.  Q-Stone…a grey marbled alabaster finish wall fixture and an antique brass fixture with white or pink glass were both very popular.

Most rooms have at least one dark spot that just isn’t adequately illuminated by an overhead fixture in the center.  Today, try one of these wall fixtures to illuminate those dark spaces!

It’s Throwback Thursday!!

In the 1950’s Sunset Boulevard and Cinderella were playing on the big screen.  Families were moving out to the suburbs and kids watched Howdy Doody on 12 inch black and white TV sets.  The median family income was $3,300 a year, and milk was still delivered to the doorstep. 

Here’s a look at a 1950’s bathroom…no pampering going on here!!

There’s no comparison to today’s bathroom which is not only functional but a room you want to go in and never leave!

This gorgeous contemporary bathroom which was designed by Divine Kitchens is cool, sleek and has sophistication written all over it!  This bathroom recently seen on Houzz, features Quoizel’s Downtown Collection.    Gleaming glass ball accents complement the opal etched glass drum shade and shiny chrome finish, bringing a soft modern sensibility to your home.

Did you know that the Price is Right was ranked #5 by TV Guide in its list of the 60 greatest game shows ever!  Did you also know that Quoizel has been featured and has been supplying this award-winning game show lighting for decades?

Back in 2000, contestants on the Price is Right could receive a table lamp such as this medici bronze finish lamp with gold highlights.  This caramel etched alabaster glass shade and light-up base made it a sure winner! 

You would see the prize-winners jumping up and down after winning a Quoizel Zen table lamp.  This serene design is appropriate for almost any room and brings a natural, exotic feeling into your home.  The tan rattan shade is tightly woven and surrounded with coordinating trim, and the monochromatic color palette keeps the design tasteful and versatile.

Everyone who is anyone in the lighting industry is at the Dallas Market Center this week introducing and previewing the best in lighting.

A classic design, the Saratoga table lamp is versatile in design suitable for a reading nook or accenting a piece of beloved furniture.  The brown glaze on the base is speckled in green and is accented with aged brass finished metal.  The rectangular white fabric shade completes the look.
