Lighting for the Heart of the Home!

The kitchen is the main headquarters where meals are prepared, laughs are had and stories are told and a place for gathering and interacting with one another. The lighting in your kitchen is just as important as the appliances you choose or the fundamental layout of your kitchen. Every aspect works together to provide beauty and function to the heart of the home.

The typical focal point for most kitchens is the kitchen table. You’ll want to make sure the lighting above your table is multi-purpose. Quoizel’s fixtures will be able to show off your personal style while providing the appropriate amount of lighting for  dining, homework, hobbies or work.

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.
