The design process can be daunting, and if, as one customer recently said, you are missing that chip, it can be downright intimidating. From building a new home to renovating an older home, or simply replacing a fixture or ceiling fan in an existing home, we help customers find the right right design elements. We asked our certified lighting specialists how they best help customers through the design process.

Danielle – “How do you use your space?” It’s hard to begin your plan when you don’t have a clue where to start. Check out shelter magazines, Internet sites like Instagram, Houzz and Pinterest, and save photos that strike a chord with you. Dive into our website at and start a Wish List See any similarities? Or distinctly differing styles that would not work together? You’ll want to choose a vibe, a style for your new space, and edit out the rest. Take photos of your spaces with your phone or iPad. Compare them with photos of spaces you love. Do you need to increase the lighting in some areas? Do the materials, lamps, and fixtures work together or fight with each other? Bring your pictures and your questions and we’ll talk through how you use your space and how we can make it better.

Mary Ellen – “Make an Appointment.” The design process can overwhelm you. Lots of ideas? That’s good. As we get to know each other we can work our way through those ideas, uncover those that will work in your space, and let go of others. If you’re looking for a lamp, or a complete lighting makeover, we’ll be ready for you.

Connie – “Visit Us.” We all love shopping online. But sometimes you need to touch, to see a fixture close up, then stand back and imagine it in your home. We have created spaces online to make shopping fun, where you can look, learn, and compare products. And in our showroom we’ve done that and more. We use color, texture, trends, proportion, and technology to help you in your design process. A trip to our showroom is always enlightening.

Lovisa – “Finish a project, start another.” The fun and the challenge in designing living spaces is incorporating flexibility. At the same time we’re creating a space our needs are changing, we’re growing into a new phase with young children, or another phase as empty nesters. We work with many customers as new projects evolve over the years and enjoy the process as much as they do.

Tom – “Life Online.” As our company evolves we find that many customers prefer to shop online. We’ve created a shopping experience for you to make shopping for lighting online a bit easier. You can shop by room, or type of fixture. You can create a Wish List. to organize your projects.
