David’s Market Wish List

Our crew is Dallas bound for the

LIGHTOVATION- International Lighting Show!


Going to Lightovation is an exciting time for us. We make the journey to Texas twice a year to witness hundreds of lighting manufacturers present the next big trends in the lighting industry at this wonderful marketplace.  It gives us a chance to style forecast and be part of this rapidly evolving and ever-changing design industry, as well as plan for what type of products we will be showcasing in our showroom in the upcoming year.  With so much to see while at market, we asked sales team-member, David, what he is most looking forward to getting a glimpse of this week.


Probably the most popular of all finish combinations right now- the Gold and White duo is definitely white hot!  We are seeing it introduced across all style realms and fixture types, from modern to traditional and everything in-between. This power duo feels bright and fresh and oh-so-current on whatever fixture it graces and David is excited to see what else is unveiled with this color combo, and who else is on-board with the trend.


A great ceiling fixture can breathe new life into an old space, and David is eager to look for additional options in this category.  “I am excited to source more stylish flush and semi-flush ceiling fixtures at affordable price points on this trip,” says David.  A best selling category in our showroom, decorative ceiling fixtures are making a big comeback in the lighting industry, and are available in more unique designs, styles and finishes than ever before.  We are excited to see what new product is in store for us!


We all have our favorites.  Every lighting professional boasts a little bias in regards to which lighting manufacturers are their “go-to” faves; the ones we always have in our back pockets due to their proven reliability and extensive product lines.  David shares a few of his favorite vendors with us by stating, “I am really excited to see some of the new product lines being released from FRAMBURG and HUBBARDTON FORGE this year.  I am also eager to tour the showrooms of my favorite lines: TROY, CORBETT, HUDSON VALLEY, AIDAN GRAY, ARTERIORS and CAPITAL.  Also, KICHLER and HINKLEY have always been at the top of my list and I’m looking forward to getting a more comprehensive sense of their complete product line.  I have also been very impressed with the innovative and cost effective designs coming from SAVOY HOUSE.  I am excited to see more of these products in person.”


Tech Lighting has recently released a new LED recessed product line from their ELEMENT collection called Reflections.  The new designs feature a hidden ring of LED light reflectors within the recessed structure, producing glare-free illumination while highlighting beautiful detailing of an intricately designed interior.  This fusion of interior design and LED technology has redefined the use of recessed lighting at a fundamental level, and breathed new life into the recessed lighting market.  With our new display arriving this Summer, David can’t wait to get a peek at these beauties in person.  Click here to learn more about this amazing new product line.
