In last Friday’s blog post, we showcased a gorgeous kitchen remodel completed by Nar Bustamante of Nar Fine Carpentry in California. Nar selected three of our Ivanhoe® Wilcox Deep Bowl Porcelain LED Pendants to serve as a focal point and offer a splash of color in the space. These Cobalt Blue fixtures feature energy-saving LEDs that will save the homeowner on energy bills and maintenance costs for years to come.
In our chat with Nar, he noted that he has used nothing but LED lighting for the past five years. With the price of LEDs continuing to be competitive, especially in light of the financial and environmental benefits, more and more home owners and... Read More
In the seaside town of Sag Harbor, decorator Natasha Esch and her husband, Matthew Coffin, have painstakingly restored and renovated an historic 19th-century storefront building. Using a mix of rustic wood and industrial metal decor, the pair created a stunning environment for Esch’s penchant toward European midcentury design. A variety of midcentury chairs dot the open floor plan featuring refinished oak flooring and, in the soaring space above, rustic posts and beams recycled from an old barn add warmth and a sense of strength.
Hanging from those beams and focusing light directly below are hefty, deep bowl pendants much like our Ivanhoe® Wilcox Deep Bowl... Read More

If you’re leaf peeping this fall and enjoying a drive through the countryside, you may find more than nature’s brilliant display of gold and crimson. Depending on where you live, you may very well find an old barn or two still providing shelter for cows and crops. Many of these old structures have classic gooseneck barn lighting that was popular back in the early 20th century. These American-made fixtures typically had wide, warehouse-style shades that directed the light downward onto the ground and over doorways making it easier for farmers to see without a lot of glare.
These sturdy gooseneck lights are popular once again thanks to the resurgence... Read More
When you hear the words LEED-certified, a brand new, modern structure filled with the latest green technology probably pops into your mind. One of the certification categories, however, is for existing buildings — those that are restored in an environmentally friendly, energy-efficient manner. The struggle comes in finding a balance between using modern technology while still honoring the vernacular of an older, and often historically significant, building.
