It’s Throwback Thursday!

This week we received an inquiry on a Tiffany lamp that a consumer bought second-hand.  The excited new owner wanted to know how old the lamp was and was thrilled to get more background on the piece.

The base, a medici bronze finish, and the shade were both featured in the 1997 Quoizel catalog.

A staple of stained glass that will forever be in style, this beautiful table lamp features an arrangement of art glass in soft pastels. The vintage bronze finish completes the look.

What a great find!  After 17 years of its initial introduction, the tiffany collectible still holds its value.

It’s Throwback Thursday!!

Back in 2001, Quoizel offered lighted terrariums that were available in three different styles, the Standard Globe, the Mission and the Harmony.  Featured here in a vintage bronze finish, these accent pieces are “a great find” when shopping for a unique piece! 

Followers on Quoizel’s facebook page have commented that they have found these terrariums on Ebay as well as estate sales.  Timeless designs then…..and now.

Maybe you have a Quoizel lamp or bath fixture that was handed down to you, bought from an estate sale or an interesting story on how you acquired one of your favorite lamps.  If so, please contact josephinee@quoizel.com.   We would love to share and post it!

Choose the Right Size Chandelier for Your Entryway

You only get one chance at making a first impression.  When your guests enter your home, the foyer fixture will set the tone for the rest of your home, so what impression do you want to give.

When choosing a fixture for your foyer, size and scale are both very important considerations.  Selecting the wrong size chandelier for the space, may have the fixture look minuscule in comparison to the room or might be too overpowering for a smaller space.

Consider your entryways:

  • Ceiling height. Start by comparing the height of the chandelier to the height of the space. A wise rule of thumb is to allow 84 inches of space between the bottom of the chandelier and the floor.  If the ceiling is less than 84 inches, a chandelier is not recommended for your foyer.
  • Width. A quick way to determine if an entryway can accommodate the width of the chandelier is to add its length and width in feet. For example, an entryway that is 10 feet in width and 12 feet in length can accommodate a chandelier that is up to 22 inches wide.
  • Decorative features. Don’t forget to include a ceiling cap, the dimensions of an odd shaped entryway, or unique window features into consideration when choosing a chandelier. Every entryway is different and you should choose the chandelier that’s best for your unique space.
