On Board with LED

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

It’s no secret, LED is changing the ways of illumination.  The technology is advancing, prices are dropping, and lighting manufacturers have been embracing this wave of change with integration of the new lamping systems directly into their product designs, in lieu of the old “socket and bulb” assembly.  There is much to be excited about with this LED advancement- but we have a few of our favorite new examples of the integration currently hanging on the showroom floor.

LBL LIGHTING- East River Linear Pendant

An architectural dream, this beautiful bridge-like structure by LBL Lighting serves as a piece of hanging modern art.  The bold, angular framework supports both indirect up-light AND direct task down-light lamping systems- which equal a total of 29 watts of LED illumination.  

ELAN- Annette Crystal Pendant

We all love a little bling in our lives, and this crystal pendant from Elan is no exception.  A polished chrome frame and clear, geometric crystals are combined with over 43 watts of LED technology to create an alluring ring of illumination.  This fixture is a feast for the eyes and will surely add elegance to any space it suspends in.


Hubbardton knocks it out of the park again!  Beautiful hand-formed ribbons create visual movement in this stunning LED pendant by Hubbardton Forge.  This suspended lighting sculpture is available in three different finish options, and houses 37 watts of LED lamping within six separate edge-lit guides.  An illuminated work of art, indeed.

KONCEPT- Z Bar Desk Lamps

Koncept has taken task lighting to a wonderful new dimension with their sleek Z-Bar LED desk lamp series.  Flexible positioning, compact sizing and touch and go dimming controls, make this lamp selection stand tall within the crowd.  Offering a wide variety of size, color and light options, the Z-Bar collection is a perfect example of seamless LED integration.   


Not your Mama’s ceiling fan.  The sleek 5 blade design of this 52″ DC motor fan from Minka Aire, offered in 3 different finishes, comes equipped with a 17 watt 3000k dimmable LED light kit, proving that form and function can unite (and move air while doing it)!

Looking Ahead: Vermont Modern and Synchronicity

What’s ahead?  MORE!  More lighting manufacturers are getting on board and integrating their newest product designs with LED systems.  These designs have a sleeker, more sophisticated look, and are able to showcase the artistry within LED innovation with their concealed lamping systems and minimal projections.  Hubbardton Forge is among our favorites, releasing two brand new product lines: Vermont Modern and Synchronicity.  Both lines exude Hubbardton’s exceptional quality and design aesthetic, but with slightly different personalities.  Vermont Modern has an urban edge and is filled with minimalist contemporary designs, integrating LED lamping systems within it’s low profile bodices.  Synchronicity takes glamorous lighting to an entire new level with whimsical creations incorporating artisanal glass and crystal into beautiful LED works of art.  Stay tuned for more updates and product information regarding both of these new lines in upcoming blogs!

Kyndra’s Take

Monday, February 20th, 2017

With so much to see at
Lightovation- Dallas International Lighting Show
Kyndra gives us insightful feedback on her first trip to the lighting market as she reflects on some of her pre-market picks and how they shined.

First to see on her list of “importance” due to a personal affinity for the line, Kyndra was momentarily saddened when realizing that the Arteriors showroom was not displaying her fixture of choice – The Vickery Chandelier.  This sadness did not last long, however.  Kyndra explains, “My jaw was on the ground as I toured around and around the breathtaking showroom, and I was captivated by the richness of everything and beautiful details-  I’m confident the chandelier would have been fabulous, and everything I imagined it to be in person, as was every other piece I viewed.”

Always a crowd favorite, a walk through the Hinkley Lighting showroom gave Kyndra more than she was hoping for.  “The Larchmere Fixture was actually a lot more beautiful in person than I expected it to be,” Kyndra says about her Hinkley pick, “The center crystal shaft gifted this piece with huge visual impact, sparkle, and elegance.”

Another win in person!  The Aviva Stanoff- Quartz Moon Starburst Pendant was everything Kyndra hoped it would be.  “This fixture was a stunner.   It was delicate, fresh, and truly alluring,” Kyndra stated,  “The silver and pink beauty was ever-so captivating with it’s dramatic silhouette and soft finish combination of painted silver granella and accents of real rose quartz.”

“Perforated metal at its finest!  Simple but impactful,” was the reaction Kyndra had to Hudson Valley Lighting’s Gibbs Pendant.  Available in three different finishes, the Gibbs series served up some serious modern styling with an industrial attitude- which is right on trend for 2017.

A missed sighting of Elk Lighting’s Rialto 5-Light Pendant led to an appreciation for a different product line expansion.  Kyndra tells us, “I was thrilled beyond words to see that Elk had expanded their Armand Collection to include semi-flush mount fixtures, a two-lamp wall sconce, and a new finish application: goldleaf with clear crystal!”  She continued by stating, “The new finish brought a freshness to the otherwise traditional collection, making it appropriate for more contemporary homes.”

The grand finale.  Kyndra paints us the picture of her WOW moment inside the Varaluz showroom.  “The Fascination in Zen Gold taunted me for a day and a half as we passed by the showroom countless times.  Finally, on Thursday evening we ventured into the showroom, which felt like a hip New York City night club on a busy evening,” Kyndra continues on, ” The music was thumping as fashionable young lighting connoisseurs surrounded the bar and gazed delightedly at the lighting fixtures, furniture and other home accessories tastefully packed into the space.  I excitedly headed straight for the front window to lay my eyes on the Fascination Series.  It was true perfection: whimsical, striking, warm and an expert mix of hard and soft.  No matter what piece you look at from Varaluz, you cannot deny that each fixture is designed and finished with attention to every detail – nothing is overlooked.”
