Quoizelians take on ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!

The viral ice bucket challenge that’s all over your Facebook feed has led to record donations for the ALS Association.  What a positive way to spread awareness and donations for this debilitating disease.

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.  As of  Sunday, the ALS Association has received $70.2 million in donations over these last few weeks from people who took videos of themselves being doused with ice cold water.  That’s compared to $2.5 million donated during the same time period last year.


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.


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.


Looking Up Never Looked Better!!

There is good reason to look up!!

Today’s ceilings are a lot more elaborate and have more architectural design than in years passed.  A great ceiling design whether it is in the living room or the dining area, the kitchen or the bedroom, can give a room unique and individual character leaving quite an impression to all who enter.

There are countless patterns, designs and colors to choose from. From a tray ceiling to beam ceilings, a cove ceiling to the highly popular drop ceiling, coordinating your lighting with these unusual ceiling patterns can give your home a dazzling look.
