1. Working From Home

    These are wild times. As the pandemic found its way to Madison, the folks here at family-owned Madison Lighting decided the best thing to do was close our showroom temporarily. Our staff is truly family, related and not. We’re working from home, while a few others keep the warehouse rolling and th…Read More

  2. Unexpected Touch of Black

    Matte black has become the new metallic finish in lighting, so we’ve added it to our palette. It’s a trend that’s here to stay. Like the perfect LBD or a Tom Ford tux, matte black adds a glam sophistication that feels luxurious, doesn’t it? But that’s where this trend takes a sharp left tu…Read More

  3. Statement Lighting

    Statement Sized Lighting

    In a minimal life at home we find a trend that has inspired us. The rooms are simple, and the furniture is big. Elements of the style or period are carried through each piece of furniture: the fabric, the curve of the arm, the turn of the leg. Accessories are almost non-existent. And the crowning gl…Read More

  4. Natural Textures in Lighting


    If a coastal vibe conjures up a rather sloppy look with kitschy fish prints hanging on the walls and wobbly lamps we’re here to address that. We love the coastal look for its mix of modern and traditional elements. It’s color and light, textures and natural touches that bring the outdoors in bec…Read More

  5. Living in Color

    The softest shades of nature. Green that soothes. The blue sky at dusk. Soft salmon rather than strident pink. These soft colors aren’t wimpy, they’re rich and deep, fully saturated with pigment giving it a rich and enduring feeling. We’re embracing color after a long grey spell. And grey itse…Read More

  6. An Instant Home Update

    We update the table linens, buy flowers, invest in new table settings, but why don’t we look up? Yeah, right there. The 15-year-old chandelier that looked so cool when you bought it, so chic. It’s ... dated. Is that a thing? Do chandeliers get dated? Yes! Chandeliers, in fact most lighting, is i…Read More

  7. Kitchen Lighting


    Well it’s here. The end of daylight savings time has pitched us into the dark. It’s 6pm in my kitchen and it looks like midnight outside. It makes us all a little nutty. Fortunately, you can add light to your home (and home office) bringing beautiful comfort to your life. In a time when changing…Read More

    A Kitchen Bistro

    In the building of a new home we bring our ideas, solutions, and lighting design expertise to our client’s projects. One recent new home really stands out.

  9. Kichler Crushed Ice Light Fixture

    Party in the Kitchen

    We’re hearing it. Like a drumline coming toward us, we’re hearing customers saying, “Wait! This is Kichler?” And, “Whoa, THIS is Kichler?” I feel the same way! The company that’s perhaps best known for bathroom vanity fixtures with great style at a great price has roared into our consc…Read More

  10. Undercabinet Lighting

    Light at hand

    What’s this funny looking thing pictured here, you say? This odd-looking gadget is the reason I love the light in my kitchen. It’s an undercabinet fixture and it’s gonna change your life. I have one of these under the cabinets over my dishwasher, over my coffee grinder and Mokamaster, over my …Read More
