Lighting is very important, so we break it
down into two standards. There’s standard lighting that’s general lighting where you
need for the room to lightly wash the walls and there’s accent lighting. I think there’s
that resurgence to that old world, almost nautical, industrial, cape-cod meets brooklyn, going back to that reclaim lantern, burnish steels. There’s a lot of custom lighting company
and they’re really fun to work with. I’m finding that people are not necessarily just buying
the lights, they’re hunting for them, buying re-salvaged stuff or evening designing their
own. It’s become so much more of a fun product to design and a feature piece and a focal
point. When people buy lighting for their home they
want those pieces to look sculptural and look interesting and to kind of stand out. They
don’t want pieces that look like the kind of thing that everyone else is going to have
in their homes. I think we’re moving towards more architectural
lighting, so that means seeing less lighting and then really highlighting amazing fixtures.
I found that for a certain period of time we were always trying to put eye-candy everywhere
and it looks really unsophisticated and kind of crass in an interior. When you could choose two gorgeous, really designed fixtures and then keep everything else quite quiet. I think
we’re seeing a return to that, you saw a lot of that in the 60’s and 70’s even the end
of 50’s. So it’s kind of exciting to see that returning to contemporary interior. It’s always
been a part of modern interiors but contemporary interiors is certainly seeing more of it.
