“Odds & Ends”

Huge thanks to Enlightenment magazine for featuring Quoizel in their October issue.  With sparkling bevel-cut glass and a versatile finish the Mirage semi-flush is grand illusion at its finest. The simple construction of the fixture base is finished in Vintage Gold and showcases the clear hanging glass to perfection.  

Mirror mirror on the wall…this handsome transitional-style mirror (item 8) is available in either Bronze or Brushed Nickel.   The contemporary mirror (item 10)  from the Carolyn Kinder International collection is modern yet sensible.  It is comprised of beveled mirrors giving it a chic, stylish appearance.


Flush or Semi-Flush?

When you are planning out your home’s lighting scheme, it is fairly common to use either flush or semi-flush lighting fixtures.  Unlike direct task and accent lighting, flush and semi-flush fixtures are ceiling-mounted to provide illumination to a larger more generalized space.  So what exactly is the difference between semi-flush and flush mounted lighting?

Flush Mounted Lighting
The electrical box as well as all the component wires are placed in a space above the room’s ceiling surface. A flush mounted light is directly connected to the inset power source. A wide variety of lighting fixtures can then be mounted flush with the ceiling, eliminating the space between the ceiling and the fixture.
