Our client’s wanted a unique headboard for their master bedroom.  Cheryl coordinated with Appalachian Hardwood to source a live edge slab for the project (photo A). Because of the extreme weight of the slab (over 300 pounds), custom brackets were needed to secure the headboard to the wall.  Todd Miller, with Scream Hot Iron crafted the custom brackets and installed the headboard (photos B, C, D, and E).  Bedding by Fino Lino and pillows by Surya complete the look(photo F).

What’s Hot in Lighting This Year?

What’s Hot in Lighting This Year?

Maxim Pendant Separator Kit

Our designer, Emma Kechter, traveled to Dallas to find out!  Cardboard, wood and concrete are the three hot materials in lighting this year.  While they are stylish, environmentally responsible, and a fabulous fit for the right space, here are some more amazing finds

Hive Pendant

Vermont Modern Hive Pendant

One of Emma’s favorite finds was the 3-Light Pendant Separator Kit from Maxim Lighting.  Using only one junction box, three pendant lights can now be installed and grouped tastefully together!  Another more abstract concept she found was this build it yourself Hive Pendant by Vermont Modern.  Interlocking metal pieces can be assembled easily to create stunning sculpture that also acts as an art piece.

Cheryl’s pick this year are the Reflections Decorative Recessed Downlights, from Tech Lighting. These carefully crafted domes reflect the hidden ring of LEDs to deliver perfectly controlled indirect illumination.  The play of light and shadow highlights the range of stylized dome designs while reducing the overall glare.  They are available with or without a flange for traditional look or a smooth mudded-in look for a more contemporary style.
