1. Earth Inspired Glam

    Bringing the comfort of materials from nature into your home is not to denied! Collecting shells, beautiful river stone, and even sea glass, well, we can all relate. In the last few years, artisans have begun to craft home décor of materials found in nature and we find these items fly off our showr…Read More

  2. Upcycled Meets Up to Date

    Modern Farmhouse? Like that’s a trend! A crazy oxymoron? Not at all. This trend is big from coast to coast. The Farmhouse is all about Americana, from a screen door that snaps shut to galvanized steel light fixtures. Some our first social media photos at Madison Lighting were taken in a fabulous b…Read More

  3. California Dreamin’

    Funny the things you notice. On the set of the hit TV show Empire, the character Jamal has this incredible loft. The kitchen is earthy and sleek, with a Carrera marble-topped island, high-gloss cabinets, and appliances from Sub-Zero and Wolf. But it was the kitchen’s copper pendants that caught my…Read More

  4. How To Mix Metals

    Just like fashion, mixed metals are making it into our lives at home. And, just like fashion, it can be tricky mixing metals. We are seeing more and more lighting that mixes metal finishes and clients are often quite taken with them. For years we banned brass thinking it looked dated. So unfair. I t…Read More

  5. Sophisticated Pink

    From the palest of pinks to warm tangerine pink and rich rose, pink has taken the design showrooms by storm. I love working with pink and not in an ultra-feminine way. Pink is sophisticated, the passion and power of red embracing the completeness of white. It’s friendly, refined, and calming even …Read More

  6. Modern Cabin Clean & Masculine

    This trend is cool: the modern cabin is rustic luxe, masculine and stripped of the stuff. Easy on the eyes. A massive repurposed wood table would handle dining, family board games, and the occasional poker tournament. The lighting? Elegant in it’s simplicity. The bedroom could shimmer with dark p…Read More

  7. Ripped From a Magazine

    A couple of weeks ago when a couple told us, “We want to make a beautiful space to create a bountiful buffet, and (the wife added) I want it to look like a magazine,” you can imagine the excitement. Out came the photos of her space, her Pinterest pics, paint colors, and her wishes for the drama …Read More


    Dressing the house for the holidays is so much fun. It could be because so many of the decorations are collected over time, arranged in a new way each year. And adding something special to the collection is part of the fun. You’d think December might be a quiet time at Madison Lighting but we’re…Read More

  9. In the Kitchen with Lanette Hansen “Take 2”

    It’s fun for us to get together because Lanette works fulltime at Magic 98, is raising two boys with her husband Mark, has home projects, family gatherings, charities, and, well you get the picture. So, the other day in she comes with her phone, loaded with photos, and full of ideas. In less than …Read More

  10. In the Kitchen with Lanette Hansen

    The other day our friend Lanette Hansen called to talk about lighting for her kitchen. The house is pretty new but the lighting (or lack there of) took her by surprise. What did she and Mark inherit when they bought the house? Inexpensive lighting (“it’s got great style but it NEVER hangs straig…Read More
