What’s New for 2015!

The New Year brings in new trends in lighting. A huge trend for 2015 includes the bridging of classic natural styling with contemporary materials and technologies. This begins with the usage of LED as opposed to incandescent bulbs. LED on average lasts about 20 years and is 80-90% efficient while traditional incandescent bulbs have a mere 20% efficiency. Also the implementation of wireless and remote control lighting is gaining popularity as consumers enjoy the convenience of such technologies.


The Colors of the Season

The holiday season brings with it a beautiful kaleidoscope of colors.  Greens, blues, reds and shimmering gold and silver are what come to mind when we think of decorating for the holidays.

This beautiful Larissa Tiffany features a handcrafted, genuine art glass shade created in rich jewel tones as well as soft pastels. This traditional and elegant lamp will compliment your holiday lights while reflecting the hundreds of mosaic colored glass.

Just like the runway or dressing for a holiday affair, sequins, beading and sparkle will create a cheerful and festive look.  The key is for the look to be classy and chic not flashy or gaudy. 


Put Yourself in Your Guests’ Shoes

With the holidays upon us, take a look at what your guests will experience when they arrive at your doorstep! Put yourself in their shoes from the time they enter your home to preparation of the meal, dining, resting to relaxing by the fire.

You want your guests to arrive safely to your door with a well-lit path.  This classic Arts & Crafts style goes well with traditional, transitional and contemporary decors. The translucent linen glass softens the light, reducing glare and hot spots.  The Hillcrest Collection is offered in flush mount, hanging, post and several lantern sizes to meet all your lighting outdoor needs.


Three is Not a Crowd!

Ever notice that architecture, landscaping and objects that appear in threes are more memorable.  In fact they are more appealing and effective than other numbers of objects.

Two of the same object simply means two. Three, of the same kind of object instantly means collection without looking cluttered.

The rearrangement of a grouping of threes can entirely alter the flow and aesthetic of a room. This holds true especially in design and specifically in home accessories and lighting.

This charming kitchen was provided by Webster Interiors, located in Webster, NY.  Their design inspiration has always been tailored to the individual style of their clients.  The three combination features Quoizel’s Steadman Collection.  This traditional mini pendant gives the exterior of your home both beauty and an industrial sense of design.  It features a vintage bulb for an historic look and is enhanced by the clear seedy glass.


Dress Up Your Home for the Holidays!

With Thanksgiving and Hanukkah upon us, and Christmas right around the corner, there’s never been a better time to Dress Up Your Home!

The quickest, easiest and possibly least expensive way to update your home is to update your lighting.  Changing your foyer, dining room or kitchen fixture can spruce up the room where you welcome your guests or entertain them.

This gorgeous vintage bronze tiffany shade is a treasured piece of jewelry and will no doubt be what your guests see when they first enter your home.
