Lighten Up in 2016
Lighting is one of the simplest ways to make a good space a great one. Besides the actual differences in the ways light is cast into a room, the fixtures which throw those hues can be structurally interesting or sculpture-like on their own.
Looking forward at the year, there are two companies we keep turning to for lighting in our projects. Kevin Kolanowski''s Fuse Lighting is one them. When he launched the company in 2000, there were few options straddling traditional and modern lighting. He combines light and texture with unusual materials to create interesting works that surprises clients. It's sometimes called "jewelry for the home." We agree.
And not a newcomer to the industry at all is Boyd Lighting. The company started in San Francisco in 1921 and has prided itself on solid craftsmanship for nearly 100 years. Boyd Lighting's fixture have a timeless elegance, and can be found in homes and public buildings throughout the world. Plus, they have a facility in Colorado Springs, and that makes is easy for us interior designers here in Aspen.
It's a new year full of new projects. Exciting design trends will constantly evolve, but hopefully this helps shed some light on one.
