The answer is... (Owners and Buyers Read Carefully) 1. Highest Dealer Profitability on Crystal Chandelier sales. (Isn’t that what it‘s all about? We will guarantee it in writing!)

2. We do not sell Big Box Stores or Buy Direct Catalog Houses. We protect our Lighting Distribution Channel and we don’t OVER distribute our product in your sales area! (Our 2 Brands allow you to make a fair profit margin.) 3. Great Crystal Chandelier Styles that Sell Everyday! (Even during these difficult business conditions.)

4. We are a Nationally Advertised Brand! We continuously send Crystal Chandelier buyers to our Authorized Dealers through our Satellite Whisper System that sends sales leads directly to your Showroom’s phone. Companies that do not have a Nationally Advertised Brand really don’t benefit your business as we do and cannot compete with our total program!

5. Increase your Sales and Profits through access to our New IMPACTTM line of Crystal Chandeliers! Benefit from; ‘Down, Dirty, Cheap Dealer Factory Pricing’ on our High Quality Crystal Chandeliers (Or, your competitor’s will). Did you know our Company delivers completely assembled Chandelier Frames unlike some importers that send you unassembled parts in bags. Have you calculated the cost of assembling their product, and your retail customer’s aggravation, in your purchasing decision?

6. The Difference Between us and our Competitors is; Other Crystal Chandelier Companies want to sell you more Crystal Chandeliers. We also want to sell you more Crystal Chandeliers, but our advantage is we help you sell more Crystal Chandeliers and at Higher Profit Margins!

No one has a Better Total Crystal Chandelier program! If you are an owner or a buyer Investigate why we should have the Opportunity to become your Principal Crystal Chandelier Supplier. You will discover in addition to the above we deliver so much more and substantially higher dealer profitability which we will guarantee in writing.

YOUR LINK

Dallas Has an App for That The DallasMarket mobile app, a tool to help buyers and exhibitors navigate the Dallas Intl. Lighting Market and keep up-to-date on Dallas Market Center (DMC) news and events, will turn one year old at the January 2013 market. The app offers interactive maps, searchable company and product category databases that are constantly updated, and even a My Market function that allows the user to maintain a calendar and “favorite” showrooms for later, enabling a new and improved market experience. Fewer and fewer people are picking up the traditional print directory, according to the man behind the app, DMC’s Vice President of Corporate Services Stephen Dumas. “It has many limitations, beyond its size, that the app does not. We can add a lot more information without making the product unwieldy or cumbersome.” For instance, if hunger pangs hit and you have no granola bars in your bag, use the app to search for the nearest food vendor. If you see a great product and want to share it with your social media circles, connect to Twitter via the app. And when your buying mission is done for the day and you want to mingle with other marketgoers, find out when and where daily events are being held. Dumas says that DMC started to discuss the idea of creating an app a few years ago for a couple of reasons: The traditional directory is often out-of-date the moment it’s published, and DMC wanted to appeal to the younger buyer and exhibitor. Dumas points out that DMC was seeing a dramatic increase in the amount of mobile hits on its website during shows — so much so that the carriers couldn’t keep up with the demand. “We needed a way for the attendees to access our data even if the cell phone networks were clogged,” Dumas says. “It was probably our number-one complaint at market. Our app works whether you have a connection or not.” Beyond connectivity, Dumas says the app has allowed DMC to greatly expand its merchandise categories as well as put forth more accurate information. The DallasMarket app is available for free for the iPhone and iPad. As of October, it is also offered for the Android platform.

Designed by Moredesign for Padua, Italy-based MyYour, Penelope floor lights were inspired by classical statues, but everything else about them is thoroughly modern. Illuminated evenly by LED, the surfaces are made of the company’s proprietary Poleasy ® material, which enables durability and easy cleaning. The outsize proportions create added drama: Each one is 2.1 meters, or nearly 7 feet tall. www.myyour.eu

WE’RE ON Style and Substance for Lighting Professionals

Power to the People

www.ResidentialLighting.com

Working on our 20th anniversary supplement this month, I found it amazing how much the business and science of lighting had changed in that timeframe. Technology may be responsible for most major adjustments in our industry — creation of online sales channels, emergence of mobile devices and advancement of LED light sources — but no matter what electronics are in play during any given era, our retrospective research made something else quite clear: Our industry’s true energy always comes from its people. I had the honor of working on our commemorative edition with my mentor Cori Dunn, who launched Residential Lighting. Poring through archival issues we had worked on together “back in the day” released a flood of memories for me — all of them populated by people I am still privileged to call my friends. Every significant event we encounter in life — positive or negative — becomes defined by the individuals who participated in it with us, witnessed it for us, celebrated it with us, got us through it. Thanks to the delightfully incestuous nature of the lighting business, these are often the same people we can call upon decades later to help us remember and share a laugh ... or a tear. We’ve been there for each other in times of tragedy — personal losses and those profound, as in the cases of 9/11 or Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. We are an industry that takes care of our own. Some friendships have sustained over multiple generations. Some have yet to be established. We are an industry that measures time in Dallas Markets and ALA Conferences, not just as benchmarks for our business growth or other tangible paybacks, but for the memories made together at events that bring so many friends to one city — or one hotel bar — at one time. Our relationships are the priceless commodity at the core of every transaction and every product introduction. Our relationships are everything. I am thankful for the relationships that this magazine has enabled for me, and for the honor of sustaining a relationship between our brand and its readership. It is our goal to use technology — digital communications, social media — to enhance those genuine relationships, not erect impersonal walls around us. And given our industry’s fundamental values, I’m confident that technology will only strengthen the bonds that built the lighting business. If you received this issue in the mail, you will find our Double Decade of Design supplement polybagged with it. If you’ve picked us up at the Dallas Market, you’ll find the supplement distributed separately. Be sure to get a copy and see how closely our memories of the past 20 years mirror yours.

DOUBLE DECADE

Today: Living Social Web marketing ushers in a new era for lighting showrooms.

I

f showrooms were still feeling unsure about using the latest marketing technologies to improve business, the first-ever Digital Day at the January 2012 Dallas Intl. Lighting Market put that to rest. Intended to help showrooms keep up with their larger or more tech-savvy competitors, the day of e-marketing seminars covered using e-mail, Web marketing and social media. Residential Lighting magazine began writing about Web marketing in the late 1990s and expanded that coverage to include social media about two years ago. In a 2010 interview, media consultant Debbie Weil said using social media is “ultimately really about doing business differently. Companies that are more engaged with customers make more money.” The American Lighting Assn. (ALA) updated its website in 2010, making it a source of free content designed to enhance a member showroom’s own site and increase visibility in search engine rankings. As public relations maven Mary Lou Denny told RL readers, “a website isn’t just about getting hits; it’s about people hitting on good information. That’s how they stay connected to you.” Our magazine’s Showroom of the Year Award finalists and winners are avid users of Web marketing. Although its Sacramento, CA, showroom dates back to 2004, Lumens Light + Living has become one of the country’s largest online sellers of contemporary lighting by maintaining a robust social media presence on Facebook and Twitter. For showrooms that focus on local markets, the old formula of ads in weekend newspapers and the Yellow Pages has given way to a new media mix that depends on search engine optimization (SEO) to drive store traffic. Dave Nestor of Urban Lights in Denver, a 2011 Showroom of the Year winner, reported that his showroom’s social media presence and partnership with the Denver Post website “improve our organic place in the Web world.”

Updates to California Energy Codes Energy-efficiency success in California is a big story these days, and new residential lighting standards are playing a significant part. Title 24 and Title 20, two standards set by the California Energy Commission (CEC), are anticipated to continue to add to the energy-saving success of the California Public Utilities Commission’s energy programs. Title 24 serves as the basis for design and construction of buildings in California and Title 20 covers appliance efficiency regulations. Both are in the process of being amended for 2013. Title 24, is amended every three years. According to Gary Flamm, Supervisor, Building Standards Development Unit at the CEC, there are several changes to the 2013 residential requirements in Title 24: ■ Currently, in order to determine if an LED luminaire is high- or low-efficacy, an efficacy calculation is used. With the 2013 changes, a default list is provided. “Instead of making people do the math, we have a list that will simplify this question for most of the non-lighting people,” Flamm explains. ■ In order to be high-efficacy, a luminaire is certified by the manufacturer to the CEC under penalty of perjury, but it has to be a residential fixture. Flamm says there’s been some confusion because a number of luminaires that are certified are not residential. Beyond the efficacy requirement, certification requires a minimum of 90 CRI and a color temperature of 2700K to 4000K for indoor use and 2700K to 5000K for outdoor use. ■ Currently, bathrooms have to be outfitted with all high-efficacy luminaires or lowefficacy luminaires on a vacancy sensor. With the 2013 changes, each bathroom must have a minimum of one high-efficacy luminaire, which can be on any kind of switch, and any low-efficacy luminaires have to be on a vacancy sensor. ■ Luminaires in any rooms classified as “utility” — which include laundry rooms, garages and utility rooms — have to be both high-efficacy and fitted with vacancy sensors. Previously, the requirement was either/or. The 2013 standards were adopted by the Energy Commission on May 31, 2012 and will be printed by the California Building Standard Committee in June 2013. The effective date is Jan. 1, 2014. With the new 2013 standards, residential energy savings over the 2008 standards will be 23.6 GWh per year. Title 20 requires that all regulated appliances sold or offered for sale in California be certified by manufacturers to the CEC. Portable lamps and light bulbs were affected by Title 20 in 2010, when new requirements mandated that lamps sold in the state have dedicated sockets for fluorescent light sources or be sold with a fluorescent bulb — a solution nicknamed “bulb-in-a-box.” As an update to Title 20 in 2013, the CEC has proposed a voluntary California Quality LED lamp standard, which would function similarly to an Energy Star® Plus standard, according to Flamm. Quality LED lamps would need to meet four requirements: a minimum of 90 CRI (only 2700K and 3000K), dimmability, longevity of more than 25,000 hours and be defined as directional or omni-directional. A workshop was hosted by the CEC on Oct. 11 to discuss the voluntary LED specification and American Lighting Assn. (ALA) Director of Engineering Terry McGowan, who is participating on a CEC task force to help develop the standard, spoke on behalf of ALA’s members: “In our view, residential lighting quality is really at the heart of the matter of what we’re discussing here. The quality of light does matter and consumers define that for themselves, especially in their own homes.”

The PreConference program will run April 24-25, 2016, and the Trade Show and Conference will run April 26-28, 2016, at the San Diego Convention Center. Organizers also confirmed that the 2014 show will take place in Las Vegas and the 2015 show will take place at an undetermined East Coast location, but have not yet released the dates for either of these interim shows. Lightfair is produced annually, alternating between large East and West Coast venues. The showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s San Diego debut follows its long-running staging at the Las Vegas Convention Center, which originally started in 1998 to replace Chicago. It returned to Las Vegas in 2001 and then in even years between 2004 and 2012. The San Diego Convention Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s size and scale, together with its proximity to extensive hotel facilities and transportation resources and services, was a defining factor in the location decision. The Center has more than 500,000 square feet of exhibit space and is located within walking distance of more than 11,000 hotel rooms and scenic San Diego Bay. The San Diego Intl. Airport is also within three miles of the Center. The 2013 edition of Lightfair will take place at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, with Pre-Conference programming April 21-22 and the Trade Show and Conference running April 23-25.

The Insignia LED light bulb looks like a traditional incandescent light bulb, a familiar shape for consumers, and provides a more ambient, omnidirectional light. Additionally, the bulb offers immediate full brightness when turned on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was important to me to create an LED bulb that would solve some of the current pain points for consumers,â&#x20AC;? says Carroll. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consumers have traditionally resisted other high-efficiency light bulbs due to their unattractive shapes, strange lighting and high costs.

Leaf category for sustainable design and Golden Lighting won in the Lighting category. Hubbardton Forge’s winning lamp, the Brindille, is made of recycled steel. The round bar stock is heated to a red-hot temperature then repeatedly hammered with a vintage trip hammer to create its signature organic twig aesthetic. “It’s an honor to be recognized, for the eighth time, by such a prestigious organization as ASFD for both our design leadership and environmental posture,” says Bruce Hathaway, National Residential Sales Manager for Hubbardton Forge. “We see product design and our ‘green awareness’ as intertwined, fundamental foundations of Hubbardton Forge. It’s who we are as a company. Winning the Green Leaf Pinnacle Award is confirmation that our environmental stewardship is critically important at every level of our decision-making process.” Golden Lighting’s winning chandelier, Autumn Twilight, features steel branches sculpted with crystal to create a forest canopy, and faceted amber-tinted crystal beads and leaves that glisten when illuminated. “We are extremely excited by this achievement,” says Danielle Dzurik, Product Development Manager at Golden Lighting. “This award demonstrates that Golden Lighting is committed to producing creative lighting designs for our customers. But more importantly, it has inspired us to continue developing innovative lighting, and encouraged us to push the boundaries of conventional lighting design.”

ILLUMINATIONS

One for the Ages Eunice Noell-Waggoner advises about lighting design that respects seniors’ growing desire to “age in place.” Residential Lighting: What lighting functionalities do we need for an aging population? Eunice Noell-Waggoner: The key words are quantity and quality. Let’s explore quality first. What a young person might describe as “sparkling,” an older person would describe as “glare” — enemy number one for aging eyes. So ”attractive” and ”functional” will have totally different meanings for your older customers. All light sources must be shielded with a shade or a diffuser — no exposed bulbs. Quality of light includes even and consistent ambient light levels throughout the home with the addition of task lighting. The dramatic effect of high-contrast lighting won’t be appreciated by older people. A higher quantity of light is needed because only one-third to one-fifth of the light reaches the retina as compared to younger people. RL: What output are we talking about? Is color important? ENW: What’s important to an older person is the amount of light in the space, measured in footcandles with a light meter. With a light meter, every showroom could become a mini lighting lab. The recommended light level for ambient light is 30fc — measured at 30 inches above the floor with the photocell of the light meter facing the ceiling. Measure the lighting in the showroom at different locations so your customers can experience what works best for them. Color is now a very important

topic. Scientific research over the last 12 years has brought a new understanding about the importance of having high levels of cool light, like daylight, during the day and low levels of warm amber light at night. Changing the color of light at night is needed to promote sleep. Older people have a high percentage of sleep disorders, so this is very important. The pathway to and from the bedroom and bathroom, and in the bathroom, must have night lighting that is amber. RL: What opportunities exist to cater to aging eyes? ENW: The simple fact is that older eyes need more light. To provide the quality mentioned above, the lighting must be uniform, which means more lighting fixtures. Downlights alone are not enough. Additional lighting must be provided to light the ceilings and walls. Think in terms of lighting the spatial volume, not just the floor. Using direct-indirect lighting is a common strategy in offices

and commercial buildings — seniors would benefit from this same strategy. Consider all the possibilities where lighting could be built on top of kitchen cabinets, above bookcases, inside cupboards. Adding more layers of light provides flexibility in a space and satisfies the demands of task lighting. The best showroom, if space allows, has small vignettes of key areas of the home — kitchen counters, dining areas, bathrooms — with various lighting options so the customer can find the right combination that works for them. RL: What are some do’s and don’ts for manufacturers? ENW: Think beyond single use. Re-think the dining table fixture. Seniors use the table to read the newspaper, pay bills, eat meals and occasionally entertain. LEDs make it possible to provide indirect up-light to light the space and additional downlight for reading tasks, while providing an elegant fixture to set the tone for the room. Incorporate LED amber night-lights into wall sconces and vanity lights with occupancy sensors or small astronomical timers to automatically turn the light on when needed.

THINK BUSINESS

Rest Easy What’s keeping you up at night? Mark Richardson has suggestions for putting things in proper perspective.

W

hile most of my business advice pertains to what you do or think about during the workday, sometimes a better question to ask is: “What keeps you up at night?” Or, more accurately, what wakes you up at night and makes it tough to go back to sleep? In a recent survey of businesses in the remodeling market that were asked this question, more than 50 percent cited “uncertainty about the future.” Uncertainty about the stock market causes investors to be more conservative. Uncertainly about the weather effects what we wear. Uncertainty is simply not knowing if the assumptions we make will apply in the future. In business, uncertainty is a tough place to be. A low level of fear is healthy for a business and all of us personally. It can keep us sharper and help us not take for granted what we do. I also feel we all need to be rational and play the odds. But here are tips to help you frame the subject of uncertainty:

64

RESIDENTIAL LIGHTING | DECEMBER 2012

Focus on the facts, not just the emotions and feelings. Your emotions are important but can keep you from being rational about the future. For example, you know that your prospects value their most important asset, their home. Their home is not going to improve itself. It is a question of when and with whom, not whether they will improve the lighting in their home. So you need to be more aggressive in your efforts to get the opportunities and convince your prospective clients that an update is not only good, but also necessary so “their home does not die.” Now is a great time to remodel. With low interest rates and uncertainty in the stock market, what better place is there to plant a few dollars? Play the odds. If you know that past clients are a good source of new business, then you may want to pursue more marketing strategies wrapped around past clients. If you are thinking about launching a new product or service, you may want to

take a little more time to flesh it out before pulling the trigger. Again, what you want to do in more uncertain times is to increase your odds for success, not hide under your bed. Think about the flip side. Write down all the things that uncertainty brings: your business not growing; your team becoming disillusioned; your frustration from not doing or trying new things, etc. Then follow up by writing down a question I often ask myself: “What is the worst thing that can happen?” This list will show that the worst is not so bad, and it can help you to pick the winners. This exercise brings conviction and confidence. None of us has a crystal ball and I do not believe in psychics. It is the business leader’s job to be the guiding light and help make sense out of uncertain times. It is your job to make the right decisions regardless of uncertainty. It is the business leader’s job to inspire others and reduce some of the fog and fear they have for the future. This is not easy, but is extremely important to not only survive but also to thrive. Mark Richardson is a member of the NAHB Remodeling Hall of Fame and a Fellow at Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies.

Switching It Up Successful lighting showrooms share their secrets for selling switches and dimmers. design, 32 finish options and seven unique interface designs, including a switch that uses touch-screen technology to power lights on and off. “[We designed Adorne] to help homeowners view switches and outlets not as eyesores to work around, but as beautiful yet functional design features that complement their décor and elevate the style of any room,” says Mario Gonzalez, Vice President of Marketing for the Adorne Collection. Legrand applies the same concept to the Adorne display and marketing materials it offers its retail partners. Designed to be attractive as well as approachable, the display allows customers to interact with the switches and dimmers and to get a feel for what they can do. That interactivity is key to selling switches effectively. Just ask Outside (From left) Connecticut Lighting Centers’ Outside Sales Manager Jim Sales Meltzer and Vice President Neil Fleisher show off their Five-Star Showroom Manager of the Year Award from Lutron, given for the retailer’s innovative lighting controls display.

But at Connecticut Lighting Centers in Hartford, CT, switches and dimmers — not decorative products — greet folks as they enter. “The first thing you see is a Lutron display [with interactive] switches, shades and controls for home automation,” says David Director, President of Connecticut Lighting Centers. “Decorative lighting is decorative lighting, but how we control that light is what’s exciting and new.” More and more lighting retailers are beginning to recognize the profit potential of this category.

around with them,” Meltzer says. Customers who visit Costa Mesa, CA’s Allied Lighting can see what switches and other lighting controls do to create different looks in a full-scale kitchen. The retailer’s 1,500-square-foot Light Lab has become a destination for homeowners, as well as builders, contractors and interior designers. “We sell sophisticated lighting controls, including switches and dimmers,” says General Manager Robert Hertzberg. “When people experience first-hand how those products completely transform a room, it becomes a no-brainer for them.” While aesthetic attributes may be enough to close a sale, retailers would be remiss if they ignored switches’ energy-efficiency story, says Bryan Biga, National Showroom Manager for Lutron. “Explaining the benefits of switches and other lighting controls from an energy-savings perspective gives consumers another side of the story, and an important one at that.” To make the most of switches on the showroom floor, category veterans like M&M Lighting’s Allan Margolin say it’s got to be all or nothing. “As a showroom owner, if you’re going to sell lighting controls, you have to commit to it,” he says. “You have to be excited about the product and stay up-to-date on the latest innovations. You also have to give your sales staff the proper training, and you have to actually stock the product.” Director agrees. “You’re either in it or you’re not. It’s a commitment, but we feel it’s an integral part of the lighting business, so it’s important for us to be all in.” — Jennifer Pinto

DESIGN FORUM

Million Dollar Baby Designer and Bravo TV star Jeffrey Alan Marks brings warmth and value to his new line for Palecek.

Marks: My process for designing a light is always dependent on the location where it’s going. Often times, I re-work vintage fixtures by changing scale, finishes, and bulb locations so that they fit the room they are designed for, and so they throw discreet but ample light. I’m inspired by nature. I know it sounds cliché, but I get my best ideas when I’m out hiking or at the beach. I also read every European design magazine and book I can find. They do

welcome home With the housing market showing slow signs of recovery, a home ”hanging in the balance” is no longer an ominous reminder of recessionary woes but a playful pendant concept from Australia’s Autumn Products.

LIGHT HERE, LIGHT NOW

the big game The inevitable playoff games projected on bigscreens in showrooms during the winter Dallas Market always feel like apt accompaniments to our own Super Bowl of style that surrounds them. Buyers draft their key

players for the year from the promising phenoms presented by exhibitors. With coaching from reps, retailers recruit

positions to round out display teams and fulfill merchandise strategies on their home fields. Consumers will ultimately determine which of these live up to their potential and which languish on the disabled list. But for now, every introduction is like a college MVP vying for the

Heisman Trophy. Let our show preview (page 72) and trend features that follow help you handicap

your next big thing. www.ResidentialLighting.com

Nbjtpot While scouting for her coveted Trend Album at September’s Maison & Objet show in Paris, The Trend Curve’s Michelle Lamb took note of her 10 préféré lighting picks.

Light that emits a gentle glow, rather than a directed beam, gives warmth to spaces. Aura, from Neweba, is a series of LED-powered, steel cluster-able lamps that are clean and elegant, yet slightly mysterious because of their indirect, ambient character. www.igorparis.com

Faceted and fractured looks persisted for portable lighting. Art & DĂŠcors showed some of the best applications, keeping the look more textural and less abstract. www.art-decors.fr

N 3 O

Flowers are returning to home dĂŠcor in a big way. Mat & Jewski embraced the trend, going all-out with big, hand-tinted blossoms on linen shades. www.matejewski.com

N 4 O

Lighting forms were listing and leaning in Paris, but nothing looked unbalanced. Instead, designs from makers like FdC featured graceful sweeps to ensure that light reaches easily over a sofa or sectional. Designed by Edith Terrier. www.fdcfrance.com

Faro Barcelonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Padaung lamp is nothing short of a knockout. Made of metal rings and square-cut Swarovski crystals, it also has Swarovski Crystal Fabric stripes applied inside for amazing light diffusion. www.faro.es

N 6 O

Hive is a leader in combining a passion for green products with great design. The Anemone lamp is the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest blend of these elements. Made of reclaimed cocktail stir sticks, this dramatic design is available in floor, table and wall versions. www.designbyhive.com

Global influences are a constant for dĂŠcor, but the looks are constantly changing. Beau & Bien tapped into a key upcoming global influence with porcelain lights called Smoon Tower, Smoon Dome and Smoon Turret. All represent a combination of historicalOriental and futuristic architecture. www.beauetbien.com

The first hints that copper could challenge gold and silver in seasons to come appeared in Paris. Original BTC was among the companies revealing that copper sales are rising. The company added more copper to its lighting assortment, including the London Copper table lamp. www.originalbtc.com

HIGH POINT’S BEST

DRESSED WHEN IT CAME TO LIGHTING AT THIS FALL’S FASHIONFOCUSED MARKET, SIX TRENDS STOLE THE SHOW.

NATIVE AMERICAN Buyers’ penchant for pattern led to new inspirations from familiar sources. Southwest style is a recurring trend touchstone and a regional classic, but the latest tribal rhythms didn’t play out in the same old way. On the Ganado lamp (far left) from Wildwood’s Museum of New Mexico Collection, a Greek key motif on wood recalls ancient artifacts, and on the IMAX Sanabria lamp, a Navajo-inspired pattern blends a woven-grass base with a bead-embellished shade. Ancient South American tribes were tapped, too, for design references. www.wildwoodlamps.com www.imaxcorp.com 104

RESIDENTIAL LIGHTING | DECEMBER 2012

www.ResidentialLighting.com


SUBSTANTIAL FLOOR LAMPS In the category of floor lamps at High Point, bigger was better. Whether a substantial shade sat on top, as with Palecekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joesphine Quattro floor lamp (left), or a beefy base anchored it in place, like the Frizzante lamp from Phillips Collection, proportions for these portables pushed the boundaries of what the residential market typically can handle. www.palecek.com | www.phillipscollection.com

DECEMBER 2012 | RESIDENTIAL LIGHTING

105


LILAC Soothing ”spa” colors were everywhere in High Point: soft yellows, blues and greens that were more sophisticated than pastels, but quieter than the bold brights that have been taking us for a tango. Newest of these was lilac, which looked especially crisp in portables when paired with white shades, as on Bradburn Gallery’s Miranda table lamp (above) and Port 68’s Rex Lilac lamp. www.bradburngallery.com | www.port68.com

106

RESIDENTIAL LIGHTING | DECEMBER 2012

www.ResidentialLighting.com


FILLABLE BASES Clear glass portables with bases that can contain objects — like Regina-Andrew’s Keepsake table lamp (below) and Pacific Coast Lighting’s Seascape Reflections table lamp — stood unassumingly in showrooms until their true function was revealed. End-users can add personal mementos or decorative elements to fit a room’s décor, an illuminated riff on the bell jar trend seen in several accessory lineups. www.reginaandrew.com | www.pacificcoastlighting.com

www.ResidentialLighting.com

DECEMBER 2012 | RESIDENTIAL LIGHTING

107


LINKS The latest manifestation of jewelry’s influence on lighting design appears to be the incorporation of linked elements. Evoking bracelets and necklaces, joined rings of all shapes and sizes adorned portables and fixtures alike. In Global Views’ Chain pendant (above), cascading gold links create a dramatic waterfall effect from inside the shade, while on Currey & Co.’s Orli chandelier, circular links surround the fixture’s frame. Of course, all looked most elegant in the season’s hottest finish: matte gold. www.globalviews.com www.curreycodealers.com

108

RESIDENTIAL LIGHTING | DECEMBER 2012


HONEYCOMB High Point buyers were buzzing for honeycomb patterns. The hexagonal designs and pentagons showed up in textures, like on the base of Thumprintsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jewel table lamp (below), and in silhouettes, like the Robert Abbey Pythagoras pendant by Mary McDonald. We also saw plenty of repeated hexagonal patterns printed on shades and other textiles. www.thumprints.com | www.robertabbey.com

What to watch for in five key aspects of lighting design throughout 2013.

TEC H N IQU E Yes, we know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the inside that counts. Now an emerging technique for 2013 showcases what lies beneath, creating a dramatic effect. Visible materials embedded in clear, solid castings take the layered look to a level beyond the multiple glass textures already popularized. Crystal Bakehouse (#818840-11ST) pendant from Fine Art Lamps features a setting of carnelian and citrine shards. www.fineartlamps.com

114

RESIDENTIAL LIGHTING | DECEMBER 2012

www.ResidentialLighting.com


TEC H NOLOGY LED is an obvious horse to bet on for the coming year. And experts say integral solidstate fixtures, versus traditional sockets taking LED replacements, will become more important. Engineers will be the new MVPs of design teams, ensuring high performance as the more creative types push boundaries of new forms enabled by LEDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low profile. The next frontier: improved diffusion techniques that mitigate glare without sacrificing efficacy. Ecliptic fixture from Philips Consumer Luminaires. www.philips-luminaires.com

www.ResidentialLighting.com

DECEMBER 2012 | RESIDENTIAL LIGHTING

115


S HAPE S A new generation of buyers furnishing homes in 2013 won’t be satisfied with a standard six-arm chandelier. Instead, investing in a sculptural statement fixture will be a way to express individality. The easiest way to instantly break with convention is by incorporating asymmetry. City Lights chandelier from Kichler. www.kichler.com

M ATE R IA L S The theme for 2013 will be ”keeping it real” as genuine materials continue to resonate with consumers. What’s changing on this front is that the looks involved are becoming more refined than rustic: Silhouettes are sophisticated, wood is stained and stone is polished. Dervish fixture from Eurofase. www.eurofase.com

116

RESIDENTIAL LIGHTING | DECEMBER 2012

FIN I S H E S The style pendulum will swing back into warmer territory for 2013. But what we will retain from our dalliance with brushed nickel is its unvarnished characteristic. Matte gold oozes glamour, eschewing the commoditized associations that continue to haunt traditional polished brass. Emperio chandelier from Schonbek. www.schonbek.com

LAST WORD IN LIGHTING

by randall whitehead, iald

Mirror, Mirror Flattery will get you everywhere when it comes to bathroom lighting. Q: My local department store has the best lighting in its dressing rooms. The lighting is very flattering and makes me want to buy everything. The lighting appears to go the length on either side of the mirror and would lead me to believe it is fluorescent lighting. I usually hate fluorescent. What type of lighting could I use in my bathroom to achieve the same flattering light? Is there a non-fluorescent option that is flattering? A: You are absolutely right about having lighting on either side of the mirror. It is the most flattering because it bathes people in even illumination. Good store designers (or those that hire incredibly talented lighting designers) know that if people feel attractive when they try something on, then they are more likely to buy it. Any time there is recessed lighting above a mirror, whether it is in the dressing room of a store or in your own bathroom, you are hit with light that casts harsh shadows The Emanation fixture from Boyd Lighting can be recessed underneath your eyes, to be flush with a mirror so that it virtually disappears when nose and chin. Nobody turned off. looks good under this type of light ... unless you are lying on the floor looking up. For your bath, find a light fixture that is vertical and linear. This gives you better coverage from the top of your head down to your ... elbows. There are lots of fixtures that use incandescent or halogen sources to provide this kind of illumination. Take a look at the Robbia Full by Artemide (www.artimede.com) and the Dover by LBL Lighting (www.lbllighting.com). There are also dimmable fluorescent sources, like the Emanation by Boyd Lighting (www.boydlighting.com) that I think do a very good job, especially when the correct color temperature of light is selected. I tend to recommend a lamp that is 2700K to 3000K (the color of standard incandescent and halogen light). Sometimes I specify fixtures with two parallel lamps, one of which also provides the color of daylight (5000K), like one made by Dreamscape (www.dreamscapelighting.com). We are not seen under much incandescent light during the day, so it’s better to do your makeup and select your clothes under a daylight quality of light. Most of us are getting up and getting dressed before it is daylight outside, so we need to rely on an electric light source to provide an effective substitute. You simply can’t always wear the clothes from the night before. My limit is three times a week.
