The not-so-secret recipe for the amazing food you’ll find at any Bareburger restaurant in New York is listed right on their website. Organic, grass-fed, all natural, and sustainable are just a few of the words they use to describe the fare they create every day with the help of local farmers. And the founders take just as much care when it comes to designing their restaurant spaces using recycled, reclaimed, and sustainable materials. Two new locations feature one of our favorite upcycled lighting fixtures — The Mig Retro Steel Industrial Pendant.Read More
We’re thrilled about our new, edgy light collection. Inspired Soho district in New York, our Soho Collection features shades that combine the industrial and rustic nature of the inner city with the bold and colorful design aesthetic of the artists that inhabit it.
For this Style Me Sunday we’re focusing on the softer side of Soho. Our inspiration image shows off a beautifully aged brick wall in a stylish loft apartment. To soften the look, we gave our look a pastel palette that includes sage, blush, and cream. The Unfurl Sofa Bed is ideal for adding a clean surface to a rustic space, and it’s neutral color allows us to accessorize it with textured pillows. This oval coffee table’s round shape contrasts the Charcoal Grey Geometric Rug, for a very modern look. For extra surface room, try the Hudson Loft Sofa Table.Read More
With the autumn and winter seasons looming upon us, many people are beginning to turn to their interior spaces for entertaining guests and relaxing with the family. This is unavoidable, especially in Northern areas where temperatures are already dipping near freezing in the evenings. Just because it’s time to bring out your fall jackets doesn’t mean you should avoid using your porch or patio. After all, who doesn’t love a sipping cup of hot chocolate in the evening?Read More
The most coveted feature for many commercial applications is adequate lighting, the lack of heavy-duty light fixtures that can endure dark and damp locations have been few and far between. In many instances lighting manufacturers and big box home improvement stores have offered vapor tight commercial lighting that either lacks the desired performance required, or light fixtures that fail under harsh conditions. Plagued by corrosion and vapor leaks due to design flaws and the lack of durable materials, a majority of commercial vapor tight light fixtures have a short life span and leave an unsightly rusted shell behind.Read More
Often manufactures attempt to create light fixtures that feature futuristic styling elements made from inexpensive materials imported from China. These lights enter the already crowded market at a deflated price labeled as modern; making them appealing to average home renovators looking for something unique for their home project. In reality they end up with a cheaply made light that borders more on Retro-Futurism, and less on Modernism. One light that maintains a contemporary look, yet avoids any negative stigma attached with other modern lights on the market, is the Desert Pendant. This modern American made pendant is elegant and simple in design, featuring a smooth tapered shade that provides a focused spread of light over the surface beneath it. A unique identifier of the Desert Pendant is the series of small holes aligned on the upper portion of the shade; this recognizable attribute not only provides a distinctive appearance to the light, but also allows a low amount of light to escape from the top of this pendant. The petite makeup of this shade makes it an ideal fit for a series of these pendants to be placed above kitchen bars and islands due to its diminutive 6.5â€ shade size, or as a single pendant placed above tables and booths in various restaurant settings. The versatility of this light is furthered by the 55 finishes and multiple mounting options, with an additional glass panel available for the bottom of this pendant. Although the sleek appearance of this shade is ideal for modern and postmodern settings, but with a slight variance in the options of this light, the Desert Pendant takes on a new persona both organic and industrial. With such a naturally flowing shape, the Desert Pendant easily transforms itself into a functional work of art.Read More
