PUBLISHER’S MESSAGE I have a saying that always comes to mind when our team and I begin the process of creating new collections: “Leading requires conviction… following is a commodity.” Everyone who knows me well and who is familiar with our brands understands that these words resonate in everything that drives Troy Lighting, Hudson Valley Lighting®, Corbett Lighting and CSL® (Creative Systems Lighting). Our introductions in 2016 across all of our decorative and architectural offerings will once again reinforce our commitment to producing the finest quality lighting fixtures in the industry; ones that possess individuality, style, sophistication – and of course, the latest technology. Take note of the re-branding of Lightovation, formerly the Dallas International Lighting Market, where we launch our newest collections in the winter and summer. This important market has been officially renamed to reflect our industry’s emphasis on innovation. This change will help promote lighting as a forward-thinking and progressive business and will impact the trade center in Dallas, its perception around the world and the lighting industry’s reputation. We recently returned from Boutique Design New York (BDNY) where our global contract division, Littman Brands Contract, introduced our Brighten the World initiative – our new philanthropic platform which encompasses all Littman Brands campaigns or initiatives to support charitable causes. Philanthropy and giving back to our communities has been a responsibility my family, companies and I have taken seriously for many years, and this newly established platform is our humble way to communicate our ongoing activities. At BDNY we introduced our Brighten the World MIKKO campaign to benefit The Wilson Foundation. To explain the fundraising initiative, presentations were held to discuss the program and the design process of this outstanding MIKKO fixture, which represented our custom contract capabilities. Be sure to read about this innovative and very special fixture in the pages ahead. Also in this issue, we feature some high profile projects that have showcased Hudson Valley and Troy, including House Beautiful’s Kitchen of the Year, with our own in-depth interview with renowned designer Ken Fulk. We also talk to designer Andrew Wan about his naturally beautiful design of a stunning Canadian home incorporating Corbett fixtures and showcase Hudson Valley’s debut as part of a transformation of a 1966 Colonial Revival in Lexington, Massachusetts, in the 35th season of PBS’ “This Old House” television series. We are also happy to share some of our recent lighting contributions to the 2015 Hampton Designer Showhouse, the 8th annual Designer Showhouse of New Jersey and a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. In addition, we profile a North Carolina showroom and the latest LED innovations from CSL. A case study of a custom 7 1/2-foot LED creation executed by our Troy custom division in California, which was used as the primary focus in a new renovation of a large hospitality project, is also included. Wishing you all the best for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016. Thank you for your dedication and enthusiasm for our family of brands. David Littman Publisher/Chairman of Littman Brands

Mitchel Field by Troy Lighting

“Right now designers want a light fixture that is both functional and sculptural, while homeowners want a light fixture that is spectacular yet wellpriced. Troy Lighting’s Odyssey perfectly fits all of these descriptions. Not only is Odyssey an amazing chandelier, but it is also part of a stunning collection that comes in many different lengths and a wall sconce, giving designers the flexibility to use it in many different spaces. It provides that ‘wow’ element to a room that designers and homeowners alike are always looking for.”

Modern Materials Mix Marlaina Teich, Interior Designer Marlaina Teich Designs, Bellmore & New York, NY www.mtdny.com “The Wellington pendant artfully plays with a mix of materials while still retaining a classically modern vibe. Combining the retro glamour of ’70s acrylic with shiny metals and sleek lines, Wellington is a chic statement piece that will look stunning in a foyer or living room. I am in love with the aged brass finish option. It creates a warm glow even when unlit, and the vintage style filaments are another design element that completes the mix.”

“The Mitchel Field collection from Troy Lighting resonates with me for its projection of architectural features like exposed rivets and metallic structural elements. Sleek bands of aluminum wrapped in a cool silver finish face out, while the inside is finished in a rustic tone that warms the reflected light. LED lighting and dimmer compatibility are important features of my lighting choices for both my residential and commercial designs. This is a look that is timeless, as it integrates design elements that are both vintage and modern.”

A TASTE OF PROJECT DESIGN 2015 Helping the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island shine bright Troy Lighting and Hudson Valley Lighting® recently participated in A Taste of Project Design 2015, a charity event held at the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island in New Hyde Park, New York – a respite for seriously ill children undergoing treatment at area hospitals, as well as their families. The charity gala event featured vignettes by leading interior designers with curated collections up for sale to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. Honorary celebrity guests included Nate Berkus (NBC’s American Dream Builders) and Candice Olson (HGTV’s Hudson Valley’s Woodbury Divine Design). picture light

Rajni Alex from Rajni Alex Design incorporated Troy Lighting’s Odyssey chandelier and Hudson Valley’s Woodbury picture lights into her vignette. Odyssey is a midcentury inspired fixture with hand-blown, plated and smoked glass shades, offering a warm reflective sheen. Blending modern and traditional elements, the moody space possessed a mixed metal concept. Once the design team honed in on Odyssey, they pulled together the colors and details around it to create the entire look. A pair of distinctive Woodbury sconces were installed on a built-in piece in the back. “This vignette could not of come together without the lighting,” said Alex. “Everyone loved the Odyssey. It helped sell the entire lifestyle. The whole booth sold in 15 minutes.” Littman Brands previously provided fixtures to the Ronald McDonald House’s recent renovation, Project Design. This two-year transformation brought together top interior designers and industry leaders to renovate the 44,000-square-foot home and better serve the more than 1,000 families who stay in the Ronald McDonald House each year. The project updated 42 residential suites and several common areas.

NEWS ARTISTRY IN LIGHT

Littman Brands Contract’s MIKKO light sculpture launches new Brighten the World initiative This past November, Littman Brands Contract showcased their latest designs for the contract and hospitality marketplace at Boutique Design New York (BDNY), the leading design trade fair. The booth was anchored by MIKKO, which launched Littman Brands’ Brighten the World initiative – a new philanthropic platform which includes any Littman Brands campaigns or initiatives to support charitable causes. At BDNY they launched the Brighten the World MIKKO campaign to benefit The Wilson Foundation, a charity that addresses the needs of disadvantaged and under-served children in South Africa. MIKKO, an architectural, hanging LED light sculpture, was co-designed by May Poon, design director at the leading global design and architectural firm Wilson Associates, and Nicolas Baldoni, manager of design and engineering at Littman Brands Contract. In addition, MIKKO was also completely manufactured in under 60 days at Littman Brands Contract’s 200,000-square-foot factory in City of Industry, California, through Troy Lighting’s custom division. Inspired by modular origami folds, the MIKKO architectural hanging light sculpture is a dynamic work of art and movement in contrasting forms. Each flexible aluminum body is comprised of 228 individual folds that house a one-watt warm LED with its own LED engine. The folds are woven together with aircraft cable to create an infinity of shapes, with each form in constant fluid motion. Adding dimension and depth, one form is finished in brushed aluminum, while the other is finished in gloss black with black matte accents. The hanging light sculpture’s final design is determined by strategic placement (including length, tension and location) of the aircraft cable suspension points for each structure. You can access a time-lapse video of the first hanging of MIKKO at www.littmanbrandscontract.com/mikko. As part of the Brighten the World fundraising program, MIKKO is available to hotel and commercial management groups for purchase by silent online auction at the website above with proceeds to benefit The Wilson Foundation. The estimated value of the MIKKO light sculpture is $25,000, and the auction will run through BDWest 2016 and close in April 2016. In other exciting news, Littman Brands Contract was awarded Best of BDNY: Annual Product Design Competition for the MIKKO light sculpture – the perfect end to a successful and rewarding trade show.

Add timeless sparkle with multifaceted crystal Crystal has accompanied electric lighting since its early days, adding a familiar ambiance of classic elegance. Today’s contemporary designs by Hudson Valley Lighting® reinvent vintage sparkle with modern flair. For glittering inspiration, look no further than these beautifully crafted crystal creations.

Dunkirk When Gino Sarfatti designed the first chandelier that launched the Sputnik-style craze, he was trying to emulate fireworks. Dunkirk is an opulent, branching design which seamlessly integrates Sarfatti’s vision with 32-cut faceted crystal spheres bedazzling at the ends of delicate stems.

Multifaceted Crystal Hudson Valley’s expert artisans cut crystal into multifaceted prisms, teardrops and boebeches to imbue the crystal with extra sparkle and dimension, allowing it to beautifully refract the light.

Crystal Beading Hudson Valley Lighting recently introduced multifaceted crystal beading to a variety of their new collections. These delicate, top-grade crystals create soft elegance and brilliant illumination around each fixture’s light source.

Glass making has changed very little over its 2,000-year-old history. The process begins when raw crystal ingredients (silica-sand, potash and red-lead) are mixed and made into molten crystal in a furnace. There, lead oxide is introduced to add density and alter the crystal’s light diffraction properties. Glass makers use wood blocks and molds to create the shapes they want, and once the mixture hits the mold, the glass cools within seconds. The pattern is then drawn on the crystal and roughed out with a power-driven wheel. Finally, the crystal is polished in an acid bath, leaving behind a lustrous shine.

Big Easy Beautiful

From fresh-baked beignets to mouthwatering muffulettas and savory gumbo, New Orleans is a city known for its home cooking. But delicious dishes aren’t the only thing the Big Easy is cooking up. House Beautiful magazine recently took its 8th Annual Kitchen of the Year to New Orleans, catering to those who love a well-designed kitchen as much as the Creole cuisine cooked in it. Littman Brands served as the lighting sponsor for the Kitchen of the Year, which came to life in an 1850s home located on Camp Street in the Garden District. With his beautiful redesign, the internationally-recognized interior designer Ken Fulk honored the city’s indigenous design elements and celebrated the kitchen as the new American living room. Last year, Troy Lighting, CSL® (Creative Systems Lighting) and Hudson Valley Lighting® were displayed in designer Steven Miller’s Kitchen of the Year at the 2014 San Francisco Decorator Showcase (featured in Larger Than Light Winter 2015). This year, Troy and Hudson 1850s home located in the Garden District of New Orleans Valley provided more than 20 classic and industrial inspired designs to enhance Fulk’s vision throughout the home. Fulk was inspired by the home’s Italianate architecture, as well as the city’s history, love of food and entertaining to create his eclectic design. Because this was the first time the Kitchen of the Year took place inside a private residence, Fulk wanted to design a space that felt lived-in and organic to the family and their New Orleans lifestyle. This approach could be found in his use of raw accents, mixed finishes, honest materials and in a hand-painted mural showcasing shrimp boats and life on the bayou.

Fulk’s redesign featured a new, fully open kitchen integrated with a large family room and dining area. Salvaged carriage-house doors also connected the kitchen to a covered rear porch running the width of the house, and the adjacent parlor room was reinvigorated as a library and bar. The main kitchen featured many of Troy’s designs, including three industrial Hangar 31 pendants suspended from stainless steel aircraft cables above the kitchen island, two rustic Toledo sconces in a colorful seating area and six Acme flush mounts in solid aluminum with clear pressed glass diffusers above the main kitchen area. In addition, Hudson Valley’s Kendall pendants offered an interior interpretation of vintage streetlamps or dock lights in the vestibule. A multitude of other Troy fixtures were on display throughout the home. The library featured Troy’s popular Uni chandelier, a design possessing a modern aesthetic inspired by marine life, which fit in perfectly with the bayou-inspired mural. Meanwhile, Habitat, a minimalist fixture accented by rich industrial detailing and a natural linen shade, imbued peaceful elegance and an agrarian feel in the family room. In addition, Hoboken flush mounts added modern beauty with a timeless industrial aesthetic in the laundry area. The porch also featured handforged iron outdoor options, including Sagamore classic lantern wall sconces and Campanile pendants with interplays of circles and swirls. A shimmering Mercury pendant with antique silver glassware was also used in the powder room.

In addition to designing the Kitchen of the Year, Fulk also designed a “get the look” kitchen for the Junior League of New Orleans’ headquarters, which incorporated Troy’s Habitat pendant as well as four Newton flush mounts. The kitchen will be used as a place for Junior League activities that give back to the community and support the organization’s mission to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women and improve communities.

DESIGNER Q+A Ken took a break in his busy schedule to chat with us about his approach to design. www.kenfulk.com Your work can be described as eclectic, extravagant and everything in between. You are known for designing everything from cool private clubs and residences to luxe weddings and large, unforgettable parties. What is your overall approach to design? It’s very individual. People tell me, “No wonder you love your job, because you’re a serial entrepreneur.” Every time for me is a different experience on purpose. While I think I have a particular point Ken Fulk, Creative Director of of view, I don’t think that I have Ken Fulk Inc. necessarily a style or a look because we try to approach every project we do completely fresh. I describe them as movies in my head. For me, light has this cinematic quality to it, so I often describe our projects as movies. We start out and I’ll say, “Ok, here’s what I think the movie is.” I lay it out in my head. So that’s usually the way that they start, and then they develop. They truly have these arcs like a movie would have. They have character. Anybody who works with us knows that’s sort of the lens that I look through when we develop a project.

We read that you believe the kitchen is the new American living room. How did this philosophy play a role in your design approach for the Kitchen of the Year? No matter whether you have a five-by-eight-foot kitchen in the tiniest of apartments, your friends squeeze in there. It’s a cliché but it’s true. Everyone wants to be in the kitchen, and so especially for this house in New Orleans, we were really able to blow it out and have this extravagance of space there. The kitchen really was the heartbeat of the house. It’s where the family gathers, where they live and where they share meals. And especially in New Orleans, food is love. That’s how we demonstrate caring for people – we feed them, we nourish them. It’s not literally just with food, it’s with the conversation and activities that surround it. So the idea that the kitchen should not be some sterile place that’s all sanitized and perfect and white for your protection. Why can’t it have a point of view and be fully integrated into the overall aesthetic of the house and have a personality that isn’t “kitchen” necessarily?

21

L ARGER T H AN LIGHT | WINTE R

We read that your design was inspired by the home’s Italianate architecture and the fabled history of New Orleans, as well as the family’s love of entertaining. What were you looking for in the lighting fixtures you chose to fit with the theme, especially the kitchen theme? The movie, as I described before, of this house for me is the front of the house. The front of the house is a very classic center hall 1850s house, and the back of the house has been added onto over the years. The front of the house felt more formal, while the back felt like it had a different life and had evolved over time. It had a more rustic quality, so we really embraced that. Maybe it had actually been a stable before, maybe it had been a carriage house previously. We treated it in a way so that it felt very different. We didn’t try to make it so uniform with the whole house; the vibe and the feeling changed when you went back there. We kept the old floors and sort of embraced all the imperfections, including the slopes and the feeling itself – the old beams, the stripped down wood walls. We stripped down the paneling that was there and left it very raw. So when it came time for lighting, I wanted lighting that felt like it potentially had an industrial or almost agricultural-like air to it. I didn’t want precious lighting. You look at the piece over the family room itself [Habitat by Troy Lighting], and it almost reminds me of a big hay basket that’s there. The fun kitchen ceiling fixtures [Acme by Troy Lighting] look like little lug nuts. They look kind of purposeful. I love those. And then luckily the pendants over the island [Hangar 31 by Troy Lighting] – the black and steel was part of our story with Kitchen Aid®, but it was also a material that’s very honest. That’s one of the words that I certainly use to describe this particular kitchen. The materials feel honest, and the lighting felt like that. I loved that all the lighting had weight and hand to it. It felt genuine. It really helped expand and coincide with the story we were telling in the kitchen. Troy’s sculptural Uni chandelier continues the theme in the library, which showcases a beautiful bayou scene. What drew you to this design? One of the stories of this movie in my head was really a tribute to New Orleans – the telling of the tale. It really came to life in the library. We had an artist who works for us full-time, Raphael, paint a beautiful scenic mural on the walls, so it really was this sort of bayou. We had all these beautiful colors – the boiled shrimp, the oyster shell colors. And then I saw that light fixture. I call it a giant sea urchin. It looked like it had come from the sea. It’s one of those relic light fixtures. It was really a room-maker; it was opinionated. It’s sort of modern but also the materials are still true. You almost felt like maybe it had been something else, almost re-purposed as that. And so I loved it for that quality. It was certainly a conversation starter.

What has the feedback been like from the homeowners since the Kitchen of the Year remodel? Out of all of this, and I mean this so truly, they’ve become dear, dear friends. I probably get a text from them every day. They are the most lovely, kind, gracious, funny, real family who just has been so grateful. They LOVE it. You know, it’s life-changing. [The homeowner] says she feels like she won the lottery, and it couldn’t have been for better people. They’re fun, exuberant. They use that kitchen, and it couldn’t have happened in a more perfect storm of a place and people and product all coming together to do something that is really genuine. Cause it’s not like a showhouse. It’s not something that just looks pretty for a picture. It’s actually really functioning, and a family adores it. Which for me is so much more rewarding than just painting a canvas and taking a picture of it and saying, “Isn’t that a pretty room?” To know that it actually works and functions and that life happens there, and experiences and memories and all of those things happen in that space and happen being lit by your beautiful lighting. It’s real and it’s exciting. 22

L ARGER T H AN LIGHT | WINTE R

In addition to leaving the sloped floors in the house, in what other ways did you embrace imperfection? One of the things that was interesting was that they had this big porch put onto the back of the house, but it really wasn’t connected to the space. They had small little French doors and a large volume. So we went to a local salvage yard and found these incredible carriage house doors that had these interesting wave molding patterns. It almost looked like undulating water in these historic doors, and so they ended up opening up the whole space. It was such a transformative moment when we found those doors because at first I was like, “These are kind of wacky but they’re pretty incredible.” But to find that they actually fit the space – the nine-and-a-half-foot tall doors instead of the seven-anda-half-foot little door that was there. It was really transformative to use something that was salvaged but looked like it had always been there. Then we kept everything else we could. We kept any old doors. We didn’t want it to feel too shiny and new. It feels fresh, and in some ways it feels modern, but it also feels as if maybe it had always been that way. It doesn’t look like anyone else’s kitchen, which I love. 2 016 | LIT TMANB RANDS .CO M


DESIGNER Q+A Tell us about your design for the Junior League of New Orleans, which incorporated Troy’s Habitat pendant as well as four Newton flush mounts. How has the space been received? I’ve never been so popular with a group of ladies in all my life. I have to tell you, I go there and they all applaud. They treat me like I’m Little Lord Fauntleroy. It’s a very active Junior League, and so they adore it. You would think that we had slayed dragons for them. It’s a very, very wellreceived, very happy group of women who are funny and grateful. When approaching one of your bigger projects, like decorating the homes and offices of Zynga’s Mark and Ali Pincus or masterminding Sean Parker’s “Lord of the Rings” wedding, how do you keep track of all the smaller details and still see the bigger design picture? It’s great to have these sort of grandiose ideas with a wedding like that or an enormous project, but frankly it’s the small details that people touch and feel and the little things that I think really make the difference and separate us. I like to say that I don’t ever think of myself as the best designer in the world. There are so many talented people, probably far more talented than I, but one of the things that I know that I do really well and care deeply about is relationships. And so really getting to know the people that you’re doing these things for really allows you to not only have trust with them but to know them well enough to go beyond the grandiose vision and to do the small, intimate, specific details that bring something to them. And that’s what I think separates us from just making beautiful spaces or a memorable party is doing things that are truly personal for people that make them like nothing else. You put it all together and make something that is truly personal for this family that isn’t just a snapshot or a pretty picture. To me, it’s all about those little details. The things that are thought about but have people feel understood and heard. And we keep track of them because we have a whole bunch of people who work in the studio with me and know that I’m an obsessive compulsive nut job. [Laughter.] I’m sort of obsessed with those things, and everyone that works with me knows that I am. It’s a weird and horrible disease but it also makes me good at my job. What are the major differences between designing for a big name celebrity client versus a smaller private project or residence? Typically it isn’t really so different. Sometimes the money’s different. Sometimes the requests get more outrageous, especially with something like with Sean [Parker], who is my friend. We do fun things with him because he’s one of the few people who would actually do them. But outside of that, oddly it’s not that different because at the end of the day I tell everyone it’s like learning to speak the same language. Even on a small budget. I need to know the things you like and what things you don’t like so that I can have a space that’s reflective of the person that’s going to inhabit it and not just, “Here’s my design directive, and I hope you like it.” Instead, I want it to feel like it’s mixed into the person who’s going to live there. So whether they’re a billionaire or regular Joe, that part doesn’t change.

Do you have any upcoming high-profile projects in the works that you can tell us about? We just opened Carbone in Las Vegas, which is probably the hottest restaurant group in New York right now. We did this big, splashy, crazy Rat Pack vibe. The red dining room is surrounded by these crazy, curtained off opera banquettes. It’s pretty spectacular. And then we’re doing a big high-rise in the Hudson Yards, which is fun with a restaurant and a bar and a private club. We also have a bunch of fun private residences, including a beautiful old farm in the South of France. Are there any future projects incorporating Littman Brands? We’re actually using them in this building that we’re doing in New York, which is 220 some residences – the bar, the restaurant, all that. We’re using Troy Lighting through all of the corridors and then the residences. A bunch of fun names are involved, and it’s going to look great. It’ll get a lot of attention.

Contemporary chic design takes many different forms. While it’s often associated with a clean, modern and minimalist aesthetic, designers are increasingly using natural elements to bring new life to their designs. A freshly rebuilt 6,200-square-foot home in Burnaby, British Columbia, featuring Corbett Lighting fixtures, typifies this style. Beautifully blending in with its natural wooded surroundings near Lake Burnaby, the bungalow’s pale natural stone exterior creates understated curb appeal; however, once inside, it’s easy to see what makes this home stand out. The four-bedroom, six-bath home underwent a massive renovation and custom remodel led by home designer Khang Nguyen and Todd Best, president of Best Builders and chief overseer of the rebuild. The designers opened up the previously segmented and closed off residence by creating an open floor plan with more light and flow. In addition to minimalist interiors in serene muted tones and wood siding to match the home’s natural environment, the homeowners wanted to add a warm and inviting entranceway to welcome guests. In the interior courtyard, visitors can find an unexpected garden plot, which creates a sense of serenity before even setting foot inside the home.

Natural Elegance Corbett Lighting sheds new light on an eco-conscious home Photography: Ema Peter Courtesy of Andrew Wan Design

Remarkable architecture and design define the home’s unique interior, underscored by an incredible butterfly style roof with multiple angles. In addition, the smart home offers many modern features, such as a fully automated media room and automated kitchen cabinets which open at the slightest touch. To decorate the home, interior designer Andrew Wan sought to create a design aesthetic evoking old Hollywood Hills style. His decor incorporates simple lines as well as material and color palettes from the home’s natural surroundings – including sustainable and locally sourced woods – to create flow between indoors and out. Inside the kitchen, Wan utilized Corbett Lighting’s dizzying Vertigo pendants above the countertop and table. Creating the perfect mixture of motion and balance, Vertigo is an intertwining collage of circular handcrafted rings fused together and finished in a modern silver leaf. A pair of Vertigo pendants is mounted above the kitchen countertop, and an arrangement of three in different sizes and heights is suspended above the dining table. Wan chose Corbett’s Fathom pendant for the front entrance because of the unique shadows it cast on the entryway. Fathom is a handcrafted iron sphere comprised of multiplesized circles with open spaces, convex crystal lenses and polished brass and stainless accents. At the core of each pendant is a high-powered, dimmable LED engine. Together these fixtures help illuminate and add dimension to this relaxing, naturally-minded retreat.

DESIGNER Q+A We talked to Andrew Wan to learn more about his inspired design. www.andrewwan.ca

Andrew Wan, Owner and Principal of Andrew Wan Design

How did nature play a part in your overall inspiration? Living in Vancouver on the west coast of Canada, surrounded by nature where whales occasionally swim into the inner harbor, nature is always at the forefront of my thinking. The home is right next to a public green space, so I wanted it to reflect the beauty of its natural surroundings.

How did nature play a part in your overall inspiration? Living in Vancouver on the west coast of Canada, surrounded by nature where whales occasionally swim into the inner harbor, nature is always at the forefront of my thinking. The home is right next to a public green space, so I wanted it to reflect the beauty of its natural surroundings. How did you channel old Hollywood Hills style in your design? The location and design of the home inspired the old Hollywood Hills idea. To achieve this, I used a combination of furniture and lighting. The Corbett Lighting fixtures I used contributed significantly to my being able to achieve this effect, especially the large Corbett Fathom pendant light. Did the eco-conscious homeowners only want LED lighting used in their design or was it a great coincidence that these designs were also LED? It helped that the product was LED, but the design of the lights themselves was also important. Why did you choose Fathom for the entryway? The Fathom in the front entrance was suggested as the ideal light for the space. I knew the effect of the shadows would make the entrance pop. Once they saw it, the homeowners knew it was the right piece for the location. I have had quite a few inquiries about the Fathom since the article was published. [This space was originally featured in the April/May 2015 issue of Vancouver Homes & Living magazine, with Corbett’s Vertigo pendants on the cover.] What made you choose multiple Vertigo pendants for the kitchen? I made all the lighting choices and then got the homeowners’ approval. The direction I got from them was that they wanted the home to have a certain “wow” factor – a home that would lend itself to entertaining. Being familiar with the Corbett line, it was the first website I went to when looking for lighting for this project. I chose the Vertigo pendants because I liked the design, plus the understated modern silver finish added to the overall sophistication of the interior. Do you plan on using any Littman Brands fixtures in any upcoming products? In my next project, I plan on using Corbett and probably Hudson Valley Lighting®. They have a good, quality product selection that works well in a variety of design elements. I really hope to incorporate Corbett’s Media line in my next project.

CONTRACT FEATURE

Contemporary Oasis

Littman Brands Contract transforms a tranquil hotel lobby

Located on East Frontera St. in Anaheim, California, the Embassy Suites Anaheim-North is an all-suite hotel just six miles away from the Disneyland® Resort. With such a unique location, the hotel provides an enclave of interests for guests of all types, from business travelers to families. During a recent remodel, Littman Brands Contract’s Troy custom division was called upon to create and execute custom lighting fixtures, including a magnificent LED fixture for the lobby.

The overall design concept was to modernize a dated atrium style property by creating a clean, contemporary aesthetic with water features, communal spaces, intimate spaces for small group gatherings and reduced level changes between areas. “The design intent was one with a Zen undertone, reflecting moments of nature references in both quiet and vibrant ways,” said Brent Lynch, principal and executive vice president of HFS Concepts4, the Long Beach, CA based design firm hired to complete the project. “These references are seen throughout the hotel with the use of different wood species, materials and colors of gray, red and yellow in finishes and furnishings – all creating a layered effect within each area.”

A custom light fixture by Littman Brands Contract illuminates the ballroom

Behind the reception desk is a full-height wall with staggered lines of wood planking and LED lighting randomly inserted throughout. Handcrafted butterflies are positioned along the planks, mimicking how they randomly land. The opposite wall features large scale floral art set into undulating stone, representing nature through life and form. However, the lobby’s true focal point is the unique custom LED chandelier. At a height of more than 7 1/2 feet, the complex, sculptural design utilizes 108 narrow bronze stems in varying lengths which suspend acrylic tubing. These elements are strategically arranged, creating a circular wave pattern to represent the Custom sconces in the atrium of the Embassy Suites movement of water and light. The design is illuminated by Anaheim-North 28 points of light shining from the ceiling mount to reflect the metal and acrylic, with a low-watt LED bulb at the end of each acrylic tube. The bronze metal rods tie in with the wood feature wall and add perfect contrast against the neutral white background. The custom fixture was made in Littman Brands Contract’s 200,000-square-foot design and manufacturing facility in City of Industry, California, and meets the current California Title 24 requirements. Other custom Littman Brands lighting fixtures were also installed throughout the hotel, including in the meeting room, ballroom, elevators and lobby. When the hotel renovation is complete, guests will travel along stone and wood flooring, which will create pathways to different areas of the hotel while providing zones within the larger space. Along the path, bollards representing a Zen garden will light the way, creating interest among the plants and feature water elements. This setting will allow guests to feel as if they are in a structured garden of nature-inspired materials. 30

The 2015 Hampton Designer Showhouse

A variety of showstopping Littman Brands lighting fixtures were featured in this year’s Traditional Home 2015 Hampton Designer Showhouse. This marks the third year of Littman Brands’ participation and the 15th year that the Hampton Designer Showhouse, one of the East Coast’s most prestigious showhomes, has taken place. This year’s barnstyle showhouse was built by Christopher Tufo Design & Build and decorated by 25 top designers and artists with proceeds benefiting the local Southampton Hospital.

The kitchen, designed by Marlaina Teich, featured two of Hudson Valley Lighting ®’s Lewis pendants, which hung gracefully over the kitchen island against a white backdrop with ocean blue accents. Lewis forms a striking, cylindrical curtain with staggered crystal and solid brass rods surrounding a tiered candelabra. In addition, Corbett Lighting’s beautiful Vixen chandelier commanded the clean master bath designed by Baltimore Design Group, which mixed Lucite, faux fur and wood. Suspended from a vaulted ceiling, the gorgeous fixture complemented the gray, multipatterned wallpaper and highlighted the stark, pristine elements of the bath. Vixen puts a contemporary spin on the classic chandelier by using dramatic polished nickel jewelry chains in place of traditional crystals.

For the foyer, designer Elissa Grayer was inspired by a Yolanda Sanchez painting evoking a summer feel. She chose Troy Lighting’s Pike Place chandelier with handcrafted industrial details mixing the rustic and mechanical flavor of early 20th century design. The chandelier is constructed of hand-worked wrought iron, finished in shipyard bronze, with early electric bulbs and a nautical element of manila rope suspension – making it the perfect choice for Grayer’s summer inspiration. Grayer also chose Hudson Valley’s timeless Forsyth pendant for the alcove above the stairs to the second floor. Forsyth’s cubic design features a metalwork frame that holds its glass in place, offering an open view of the candelabra and tungsten filament bulbs.

A Lighting Makeover

Hudson Valley brilliantly transforms “This Old House” Hudson Valley Lighting® was recently highlighted in the 35th season of the Emmy® Award-winning PBS television series “This Old House®.” In the second project of the season, the show took on one of the youngest homes in its 35 year history: a 1966 Colonial Revival in Lexington, Massachusetts. Home to a family with three girls, the 2,900-square-foot frame house added an addition over the existing two-car garage to create separate bedrooms for the girls, as well as a new full bathroom, laundry room and small sitting room. Other areas also received major updates. The 40-year-old kitchen needed a serious overhaul, including a smart reconfiguration of adjacent spaces to allow for a new mudroom, powder room, butler’s pantry and home office. A 1966 Colonial Revival home in Lexington, Massachusetts

Interior designer Robin Gannon chose 19 Hudson Valley fixtures to add timeless beauty and light to the exquisite renovation project. “Hudson Valley Lighting was the obvious choice for this project,” said Gannon. “I have always been a fan of Hudson Valley and have chosen countless classic and contemporary designs in many of my hospitality and residential projects.” Hudson Valley’s elegant Hampton globe pendants were used throughout the kitchen over the two islands. Each clear glass globe features elegant chain suspension and is anchored by a solid metal post. In addition, the butler’s pantry features a Hampton flush mount in polished nickel with a whimsical star-cut pattern etched in the glass. A Gresham Park chandelier is also hung over the kitchen table. With clean lines, sharp angles and rounded accents, Gresham Park’s solid brass frame and stem in polished nickel blend seamlessly with the Hampton pendants. The dining room features the Waterloo chandelier with hand-cut crystal prisms and vintage-inspired white cloth wiring inside transparent glass sleeves. The prisms scatter the candlesticks’ warm glow, refracting a playful cast of light across the fixture’s strong silhouette and polished nickel surfaces. Bolton sconces also add warmth to the dining room. Two traditional Phoenicia sconces with pleated shades and a traditional, round Middlebury flush mount with fluted edges were used in the dramatic guest bath. Other fixtures include a Gresham Park sconce in the great room and Keswick sconces in the kids’ bath. “The Hampton pendants add a historical and timeless quality to this updated kitchen, and they glisten in the sunlight even when they aren’t lit,” said Gannon. “I was also thrilled to add the stunning crystal Waterloo chandelier to the dining room.” A feature about the project appeared in the May issue of This Old House magazine.

THE SHOWROOM FLOOR

A Story in Light Shining a spotlight on Hubbard Kitchen, Bath and Lighting

In 1972, Bonner Hubbard opened Hubbard Pipe and Supply Inc. in Fayetteville, North Carolina. What started out as a simple plumbing wholesale supply company has expanded into four supply houses and three designer showrooms that house much more than pipes. Hubbard Kitchen, Bath and Lighting currently has locations in Fayetteville, Southern Pines and Wilmington, North Carolina. Each boutique style showroom showcases the latest in decorative plumbing and lighting fixtures, as well as a sampling of home accessories and lamps. Hubbard is a rarity in the lighting world as an independent, family-owned local business on par with showrooms in major markets. Although Bonner and his wife Dot both passed away in 2002, the company has stayed true to their vision of service and integrity. In 2004, their children, David Hubbard and Nancy Hubbard Teachey, along with Nancy’s husband and current president of Hubbard, Wilson Teachey, opened the first Hubbard showroom to expand their decorative plumbing offerings and create an environment where customers could see products in application.

“Hubbard Kitchen, Bath and Lighting is dedicated to cultivating relationships, as well as providing an exceptional personal experience in an inviting atmosphere,” said Ashley Butler Blue, the showroom manager for Hubbard Kitchen, Bath and Lighting. “We guide our clients through the selections process by not trying to ‘sell’ them on a product but by providing them with the knowledge to make an informed decision.” Hubbard added lighting to its showrooms in 2013, and Blue joined the company that September. Her background in lighting goes back over twenty years when she worked at her family’s lighting and electrical business, Butler Lighting. When their Fayetteville branch closed in 2013, she decided to jump into a different current: decorative plumbing. “Little did I know I would love the plumbing industry so much or that soon water and electricity would mix when Hubbard decided to move into lighting that fall.” Blue says that the Hubbard team works tirelessly to make sure customers feel right at home. “We like to provide a very personal showroom experience and get to know our customers and their projects,” said Blue. As a result, each showroom has been crafted into a warm, inviting and homelike environment, using a mix of colors, textiles and staged displays – complete with makeup and toothbrushes in vanity drawers. At Hubbard, customers can easily envision products in their own homes and get inspired by seeing them up close.

Building relationships with their vendors is equally important. Hubbard’s team appreciates the inspiration and creativity behind Littman Brands’ products. “It is great when there is a story behind the design inspiration of fixtures,” said Blue. “That is one of the things we love most about Littman Brands.” Hubbard’s consultants enjoy telling customers the stories behind the products’ unique details and names. Blue explains that they have showrooms in very different markets and like to display fixtures that link themselves to the area. “In our Wilmington location, we have some interesting coastal-inspired pieces like Troy’s Catch ‘N’ Release, Outer Banks and Brunswick (a North Carolina coastal county!). Corbett’s Fathom is another favorite on display in our working kitchen. Our favorite vignette in our Southern Pines location drew inspiration from a trip to Littman Brands’ Dallas Market showroom.” As marketing and creative director of Hubbard, Nancy Teachey is always looking for new ways to incorporate the latest trends into their showrooms. “She was wowed when our rep Shelly Earp made sure we noticed the beautiful shadow effect of Corbett’s new Enchanted family,” said Blue. “Shelly knows we are all about the little details.” After this past January’s Dallas Market, the Hubbard team came back and worked to find a way to showcase Enchanted’s cast shadows. One of the working bath displays was quickly remodeled to take full advantage of its effect on the ceiling. “Now that so many fixtures are available in LED, we are seeing more of the creative ways that shadows can be used to complement the design of a room. It is exciting to bring these technologies into a homelike setting and inspire someone to think outside the box.” Hubbard keeps up with today’s trends and increases visibility by staying active online and on social media. “Now through the use of tools like social media, we share not only design ideas and new displays but the features and benefits from our vendor partners like Littman,” said Blue. “We are looking forward to seeing what’s new in January.”
