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…
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.

“When art is in your soul, you simply cannot breathe unless you are painting.”
When Mary Farmer visited our office we had the pleasure of viewing several examples of her art. Encaustic is an ancient technique that produces some incredibly original and beautiful works of art. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
Farmer’s raw talent combined with her continuing dedication to creating new and impressive works is reflected in her rising status in the encaustic community. Her work has been featured in such publications as: American Art Collector, Novato Advance, Embracing Encaustic, The Peoria Star Journal, and the Marin Independent Journal. Farmer constantly strives to grow as an artist, seeing new images in her mind that she deems transferable to her canvas.

Rain Chains are a beautiful and functional alternative to traditional closed metal or plastic downspouts. They break the fall of the water, guiding it visibly downward to the ground, into a basin or even a rain barrel for storage. Rain chains sound great! Copper rain chains that guide runoff rainwater to a large basin or underground holding tank provide a decorative accent and soothing sound quality to the exterior of your home. By collecting this “grey water,” you’ll reduce water costs, and you’ll reduce stormwater runoff, which helps to prevent erosion. Rain chains make a terrific and unique gift – every home benefits from these elegant outdoor accessories, and they are easy to install!
