while my design aesthetic is decidedly more about clean lines, interesting use of texture and materials, simplistic yet stylishly designed furnishings and, of course, bespoke details, the one area that I like to add some drama and impact is in the use of chic and stunning decorative lighting.

for me, an eye catching, moment making, light fixture is like a woman in a tailored outfit with an amazing statement piece of jewelry!

i love creating areas where the architectural silhouettes of the space allows for the eye to be drawn to a showstopping point of interest with an amazingly sculptural light fixture.

[this stunner was created using over 200 strands of gems threaded through a gorgeous bronze metal canopy]
[like champagne bubbles overhead! who wouldn't want to dine underneath this beauty?!]

while i typically only work with to-the-trade-only vendors, there are some beautiful options that are available to all! check out some of my favorites below…..

smoky style ~ i love a multi-tiered, linear fixture over a long rectangular table. and this one is full of interest!

glamorous gems ~ like dining under diamonds! how stunning is this *jewel* of a fixture?!

dynamic disks ~ chic, modern and above all, eye catching.

dark drama ~ david weeks is a master at creating some of the most iconic and interesting light fixtures and this one is sure to be a classic.

asymmetrical artistry ~ it’s deceiving from this picture, but this fixture is oversized and fabulous!
