LOVE IS IN THE AIR.  Valentine’s day is historically marked as the most romantic day of the year.  Typically filled with cards, flowers and chocolate- we have chosen to embrace this holiday of hearts by showcasing a few of our favorite romantic lighting looks.  Here are six fixtures we feel would add major romantic vibes to any interior, and would certainly keep you “all lit up” throughout the rest of this chilly Winter.



The six-light Beverly chandelier from Feiss evokes pure and simple elegance.  The french washed-oak and distressed white finish combination provides a European Farmhouse feel, and the delicate cascading bead-work gently draped along its silhouette make this pretty piece feel a little bit vintage, a little bit rustic and a whole-lotta bit romantic.


We aren’t sure what we love most about the Rousseau Collection from Hudson Valley Lighting.  Is it the beautiful mouth-blown glass orbs embedded with intricate bubble patterns?  The mid-century mod shape and detailing?  Or, is it the fact that this collection is available in five delightful color options- one of which just happens to be the most precious shade of blush pink we have ever seen.  Whether it be a hanging pendant or sconce on the wall, we think this pink powered beauty is the perfect feminine touch to any decor.


Ring around the Rosy, We LOVE the Posy!  It’s hard not to have a lighting crush on this entire fixture family from Golden Lighting.  Delicate, white porcelain petals are individually sculpted, forming an array of blooming flowers that will have you feeling the warmth of Spring all year long.  This botanical gift of blooms will never die, and would provide the perfect dose of sweetness to your loved one’s favorite space.  See the rest of the flowering collection HERE.

Many women would agree that there’s nothing more romantic than a piece of sparkling jewelry.  The Barcelona vanity light series from Varaluz provides a stunning jewel-like effect to any environment.  Beautifully combining illumination with heirloom quality crystals, this decadent fixture is fit for a queen.  Its modern shaped framework provides the perfect balance to help give this series a fresh and current vibe, while still maintaining that elegant and romantic feel that we know and love from crystal fixtures.


You have never seen a prettier pendant than this Pomfret series from Hudson Valley Lighting.  Sinuous curves of thickly ribbed, spindle-blown glass surround a nostalgic filament bulb creating a colorful and captivating piece of lighting art.  Similar to the Rousseau family, this fixture is also available in five different color options.  But…the Blush Pink variety has completely stolen our hearts.


He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not?  Probably one of our favorite new product releases for 2018, this sculptural LED pendant from Vermont Modern had to make the list.  A smooth and circular LED light ring gently cradles a delicate hand-forged illuminated flower, creating a stunning suspended fixture that fully embodies modern day romance.  Available in six different color combinations, this whimsical creation also has a coordinating counter-part.  Yes, there is a Loves Me Not version available, and as you may have already guessed…this more simply designed relative comes without that pretty flower centerpiece.

Here’s hoping your Valentine’s Day is ALL LIT UP with romance this year and a little #lightinglove.

Our annual January trip to Lightovation in Dallas, Texas did not disappoint this year.  With so much continual innovation in this industry, we are always eager to view what our vendors have in store for us.  Freshly back into the frozen north, we are still warm with excitement over all of the new lighting trends we witnessed this go-around.  Here are a few of our favorite “staff pick” lighting moments from last week’s trade show.


Yes, no surprise here.  All shades of GOLD were as far as the eye could see.  Whether it was brushed, painted, distressed or used in a multi-finish combination, this favored metal hue was still standing strong.  The Zuma pendant, from Fredrick Ramond was one our team favorites this year.  Delicately detailed gold chains gracefully suspend under a bold and black geometric frame creating a stunning, sculptural fixture.  The strong gold and black color combination reeked of sophistication and modern style.  Another favorite find was within a familiar face–Crystorama’s Broche family. This series had several new pieces to excite over.  Their new wall sconce and bath vanity light additions were simply A D O R A B L E, and will be the perfect compliment to such a popular product line.


There was a thread of masculinity throughout this market release that we became particularly fond of.  Several manufacturers introduced designs that exhibited angled style-lines and armored silhouettes.   The Boulder family, from Maxim Lighting, intrigued us with its faceted spheres of faux alabaster, cradled with bold bronze and gold geometric framework.  Integrated with LED technology, these “boulders” were all aglow.  Another favorite from Maxim Lighting was the LED linear pendant from their Silhouette Collection.  The fixtures are simple and strong with their boxy black frames, but those illuminated faceted crystals take this series on an elegant journey that was refreshing to see.  Kuzco received one of our more masculine staff picks, as well, with their new Deco Pendant.  We liked the two different finish options available with this one: Vintage Brass w/ Clear Glass and Brushed Nickel w/ Smoked Glass.  It was a fresh and angled perspective that gave this pendant a modern edge.
