Spotlight on Quoizel

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

As Rick states, a popular trend in today’s lighting is using natural materials.  He is quoted as saying “part of our mission is to search the world and look for beautiful and natural materials that luminate beautifully”.  Rick explains that some of Quoizel’s Naturals Collections such as the Laguna, Kyle and Monterey Mosaic use materials such as mica, onyx and pen shell.


No “R&R” for Slater this Summer!

You would think living in sunny California Quoizel sales representative Pat Slater might be taking it easy during the summer months.  Instead Pat spent a lot of time in the lighting showrooms that he serves in the Northern California and Arizona areas.

First stop Lighting & Fan Store located in Mesa, AZ, where he raised this beautiful display featuring some of Quoizel’s top sellers.

Continuing on the road trip was K’s Lighting located in Prescott, AZ where he constructed this bathroom display featuring the Hollister, Melody and Pacifica Collections.


Summer of 2014 Top Outdoor Fixtures

Quoizel’s top outdoor fixtures for this summer are…

The Newbury wall lantern creates a special ambiance, and although the black finish is still our best seller, the pewter and bronze finishes are not too far behind. The classic design and beveled glass of the Newbury gives the outside of your home a rich elegance, without making it look over-embellished. It’s a versatile look that coordinates with most any architectural style.

A design made for classic Arts & Crafts style homes, but looks great in contemporary or modern homes as well.  The Hillcrest in imperial bronze has an opaque linen glass which softens the light reducing glare and hot spots.


Quoizel Field Trip to Innovative Cree Factory

 A few of the design team members including Todd Phillips, Peter Cox, Guillermo Kuwae, two college interns and Southeast salesperson Jeff Norris went on a field trip to Cree, Inc.  Since 1987, Cree has been a market-leading innovator of lighting products, LED (Light Emitting Diodes) components, and semiconductor products for power and radio-frequency (RF) applications.  Their headquarters is located in Durham, NC and Cree employs nearly 6,000 people worldwide.

They were very impressed with the factory and spent hours touring the facility where they saw the making of the diodes.  The state-of-the-art machinery is very sensitive; therefore, all employees and guests are required to wear the surgical scrubs and masks so that the area stays as sterile as possible.


June Dallas Market was a great success!

Over 300 customers visited the Quoizel showroom, and with 170 new items introduced, the salesforce was eager to present these new products to their accounts. Included in these introductions were 11 new bath items, 25 outdoor items, 33 new tiffany items, additions to the very popular Platinum Collection and the new portable line VIVID Collection…the Brighter Light.  These new additions to the Quoizel line were all the buzz.

Not only were Quoizel’s customers excited about the market promotions, but they were very excited to take a peek at Quoizel’s 2014-2015 lighting catalog. The 544-page book will be mailed out to its customers in the next week.
